THE ULTIMATE DAMPING MATERIAL
Impact, vibration and noise protection - Sorbothane is a thermoset, polyether
base, polyurethane material that combines high-energy absorption with faultless
memory. Its' unique liquid-solid properties allow it to simultaneously absorb
shock and isolate vibration even at high frequency ratios. Sorbothane resists
dynamic fatigue, creep and compression set, even at temperature extremes, without
any significant change.
In the field of ergonomics, Sorbothane plays a major role in protecting workers
by reducing the effects of harmful energy. Studies show the majority of impact
and vibration related injuries occur in a pattern. First there is the pain
and fatigue resulting from the work being done. Next comes the mental fatigue,
causing the worker either to slow down which reduces efficiency, or to adapt
his posture, leading to possible further injury.
Sorbothane’s unique liquid-solid properties allow it simultaneously to
absorb shock and to isolate vibration even at high frequency ratios.
