Vinyl and Polyurethane Vibration Damping Materials

The high internal damping of vinyl ISODAMP™ and ISOLOSS™ LS vibration damping materials reduces mechanically or acoustically induced vibrations and dissipates shock and impact energy at an increased rate. This allows for the reduction or elimination of noise in industrial, electronic, structural, and ergonomic applications caused by resonance and vibration.

Rathbun offers vinyl and polyurethane vibration absorbing materials designed to provide high-performance vibration control under varying temperature, environmental, and physical conditions. ISODAMP™ materials are specially constructed to eliminate ringing in lightweight precision equipment frames, hydrodynamic vibrations in gigantic ship hulls, or almost anything in between.

Vibration Absorbing Material Applications

Vibration can lead to equipment fatigue and damage, poor machinery performance, and unwanted noise. You can alleviate these impacts by adding vibration damping or isolation components that will reduce undesirable motion or acoustically induced vibrations within your specific application. E-A-R™ ISODAMP™ vinyl and ISOLOSS™ LS materials are utilized in an array of applications, markets, and is offered in a variety of thicknesses to fit your specific application requirements. Potential Applications include:
  • Sensitive components in electronics
  • Control unwanted motion in agriculture equipment
  • Reduce vibration in commercial vehicles
  • Cushioning and shock in heavy machinery
  • Control of sensitive medical equipment

ISODAMP™ & ISOLOSS™ LS Damping Materials Product Features

The distinctive features of E-A-R™ isolation materials make them ideal in harsh environments, are strong yet flexible enough allowing conformity to irregular and rough surfaces, and are available in rolls, sheets, and custom cut parts. Some of the beneficial product features that E-A-R™ vinyl and urethane damping materials provide include:
  • Can be manufactured with a PSA backing, offered in many thicknesses
  • Available for extensional, composite, and constrained-layered systems
  • Flame resistant, with products meeting UL 94 V-0, FAR, and ATS specifications
  • Very flexible and easy to install
  • Multiple cutting options can be easily utilized including die, web, and kiss-cut

Isolation vs Damping Material Differences

The two most common ways to control noise caused by sound vibration are vibration isolation and vibration damping. Both processes effectively control and weaken the effects of sound vibration, but in different ways. Vibration isolation prevents vibration energy from entering an object, effectively limiting vibration transmission. Conversely, vibration damping absorbs or changes vibration energy levels, reducing the amount of transmitted energy through a structure or piece of equipment.
