Sorbothane® Soft-Blow Mallet – Safe For Most All Surfaces
Kent, Ohio – Sorbothane, Inc. engineers have developed three long-lasting, Soft-Blow Mallets that actually conform to surface irregularities, providing maximum surface contact without denting or marring. Sorbothane® Soft-Blow Mallets are designed to deliver the needed force without surface damage and are used for – fine wood working, auto body trim and glass, finish carpentry, cabinetry, remodeling, window installation, glass and tile work.
Sorbothane® Soft-Blow Mallets are now available in three sizes. The mallet is safe on all types of surfaces and assemblies including wood, hard and soft metals, glass, tile and vinyl. The Soft-Blow Mallet also reduces secondary damage and repair time. Because impact is absorbed and dissipated within the Sorbothane® material, hand jarring and harmful impact shock is virtually eliminated.

SORBOTHANE® INSOLE TESTIMONIAL
Just want you to know what a wonderful product you have with the (RX Sorbo) Classic Insole. I’ve used these insoles since their inception. I remember seeing the commercial on TV with the man dropping a weighted ball on Sorbothane material & there was no bounce once the ball landed on the Sorbothane. I play softball & I think the first pair of insoles I purchased was in the early 80’s. They reduce the jolt & vibration on the body from running on hard ground. I credit Sorbothane insoles with prolonging my career in softball to the present…as I now am playing senior softball in the + 60 year-old division. I’ve now been a member of many National / World Championship Teams. I have recommended the insoles to other players to extend their playing days.
Again, thanks for a great product & making it available to the public.

Archive Excerpt From August 2009
Design News – Doug Smock, Contributing Editor
A proprietary visco-elastic polyurethane offers design engineers unique opportunities to dampen vibrations and noise in mechanical systems. Sorobothane® is a thermoset, polyether-based polyurethane solid that flows like a liquid under load while retaining excellent memory.
Viscous materials (liquids) deform under load and transmit force in all directions. They do not recover their shape when the load is removed. An elastic material deforms under load and returns to its original shape after the load is removed. The energy from a Sorbothane® deflection is converted into a small amount of heat, which dissipates from the material.
The result is a unique system to absorb and deflect shock. Read the rest of this entry »
