3M Preferred Converter, Authorized Distributor, and Converter of E-A-R products

E-A-R – Aearo Technologies, LLC - a 3M Company

E-A-R specializes in energy-control technology and provides relief from unwanted noise that is generated from a wide range of electronic devices, vehicle, and heavy equipment. Advanced quality E-A-R materials are engineered to provide a reduction of unwanted energy caused by noise, vibration, thermal energy, and shock.
Rathbun is an authorized converter and distributor of E-A-R materials. We offer grommetssandwich mountsdamping materials, and much more; we provide the prototype to production volumes you need. Rathbun is the industry’s leading supplier for Aearo Technologies LLC; no other independent distributor offers a larger selection of E-A-R products.
Contact us for more information regarding our E-A-R materials that help dampen vibration and reduce unwanted noise, or call us at 510-661-0950 with any questions that you may have. We have more than 30 years’ experience in working with E-A-R materials. We will work with you to develop the perfect custom E-A-R solution for your unique application.

Custom Fabrication for E-A-R Noise Dampening Materials

We can provide custom fabrication solutions for any type of E-A-R material including CONFOR foams, grommets, damping materials and more. We provide turnkey solutions for the following types of E-A-R materials.

TUFCOTE Noise Dampening Foams

TUFCOTE™ sound-absorbing materials are specifically engineered to provide a wide range of applications with noise reduction within a defined space, ranging from equipment cabinetry to automobile cabins. This type of self-sustaining sound reduction foam can withstand exposure to most fluids, including grease and oils.

Barrier Composites

E-A-R barrier composites products divert and dampen airborne sound waves with their mass. The pliable barriers offer unique advantages when compared to traditionally stiff materials that possess a coincidence frequency where noise is easily transmitted.

CONFOR™ ergonomic foam materials deliver a distinct combination of temperature reactive properties, high energy damping, and physical textures while displaying a remarkably low compression set for their excessive deadening and low-recoil properties.

Isolation & Damping Materials

The numerous types of damping materials and isolation products manufactured by E-A-R™ are designed to provide high-performance vibration control while under varying temperature, environmental, and physical conditions.

ISOLOSS LS Shock Absorbing Polyurethane Foam

ISOLOSS™ LS foam products offer remarkably low compression set and impressive resistance to collapse, as well as good impact absorption and vibration isolation properties.  These foams also exhibit excellent dimensional stability and low outgassing, with rigid thickness tolerances. 

Grommets & Shoulder Bolts

E-A-R™ grommets provide shock absorbing and vibration damping solutions for a wide range of applications. Our grommets are designed to perform within a wide range of temperatures while being flexible and physically strong. Our shoulder bolts are specifically constructed to fit E-A-R’s line of anti-vibration grommets in order to help control complicated noise, vibration, and shock issues that arise in many applications.

Fan Mounts, Bushings, & Rings

E-A-R™ fan mounts help control shock, noise, vibration, and motion issues in devices like; computer printers, precision medical equipment, office equipment, and demanding space constraints in miniature drives. Our bushings and rings are designed to control shock, noise, vibration, and motion issues within challenging space restrictions in small drives, disk drives, printers, medical equipment, and office equipment.

Mounting Feet & Sandwich Mounts

To soften the noise that is generated by unwanted energy materials, equipment mounts and mounting feet provide noise control and vibration damping abilities. Our E-A-R™ sandwich mounts provide excellent load-bearing strength, compression-set resistance and stiffness stability over a broad temperature range. They are also designed specifically for use in metal-bonded elastomeric mounts, these elastomers exhibit excellent environmental-resistance properties.
