New – Sorbothane® Interlocking Shock Absorbing System

New – Sorbothane  4” X 4” Interlocking Shock Absorbing System

Kent, Ohio – Sorbothane, Inc. introduced an innovative system of interlocking Sorbothane layers that can be customized to meet individual energy absorbing needs.

Interlocking Shock Absorbing Pads

Meticulously engineered – 4” X 4” Sorbothane pads can be layered and “locked” together to build a specific shock attenuating and vibration isolating assembly. A steel baseplate provides column strength and maintains the correct shape factor. A steel top plate can also be utilized. Layers of interlocking Sorbothane pads are added – or removed – to establish the desired size and isolation parameters.

Interlocking Shock Absorbing System

Sorbothane is recognized worldwide as the ultimate material for attenuating shock, isolating vibration and damping noise. No other material can dissipate energy as effectively. Sorbothane is a highly damped, viscoelastic polymeric solid that “flows” like a liquid under load. Unique applications call for unique solutions. Engineers at Sorbothane, Inc. are ready to help design the ideal damper or isolator to meet individual product objectives.
