Vibration Dampening Gaskets
Custom vibration dampening gaskets attenuate noise, vibration and harshness.
Gasketing materials can do more than provide cushioning and seal gaps. Specialized materials also reduce noise, vibration and harshness (NVH). In vehicles, appliances and heavy equipment, vibration dampening gaskets can help protect sensitive electronics from physical shock. Vibration dampening gaskets are used in applications from smartphones to commercial HVAC systems, extending equipment service life and making devices more comfortable for users.

Silicone RubberSilicone rubber is a stable material that services applications with a wide range of temperatures. Silicone rubber is a good choice for applications where weathering and chemical resistance are desired. Food-grade formulations are available. Read more
Applications for Vibration Dampening Gaskets
Anti-vibration pads for equipment
Flat elastic bearings for HVAC equipment and subsystems (fans, chillers, pumps)
Decoupling of vents, pipes and walls
Isolating foundations for pumps, presses, generators or highly sensitive equipment
Noise, vibration, harshness pads for automotive interior applications
Protecting internal components in phones, tablets and computers
Designing your Vibration Dampening Gasket
Gasket FunctionDo you need the gasket to do more than dampen vibration such as seal out moisture and particulates?
Gasket SizeAre there limitations on gasket format (die cut vs. stripping)?
Gap SpacingWhat is the thickness range of the gap?
TemperatureWhat high and low temperatures will the material reach and for how long?
Chemical ResistanceWill the material be in contact with chemicals or fluids?
OutgassingCould material outgassing be detrimental to components?
UV/Ozone resistanceWill the gasket be exposed to the external elements such as sun, wind, rain or snow?
AdhesiveDoes the gasket require an adhesive so that it can easily be stuck in place?
