Viscoelastic Damping Material Now in Thicker Material

Posted on Mon, May 07, 2012

Although 1 to 5 mil viscoelastic will suffice in some applications, many applications require thicker materials, some .500' thick and thicker. Luckily, Gleicher has pioneered and developed the manufacturing technology necessary to effectively produce materials from 0.010' to 0.500' thick and thicker, giving engineers the design flexibility they need for most applications.

Dampening materials help convert vibrational energy into negligible heat making it easier for vibrational structures to recover faster after each vibration cycle. These materials effectively reduce noise, product fatigue and enhance performance.
