Noise control is essential in most industries. When it comes to vibration damping sheets, these are imperative to building machines. Vibration damping materials can assist with ensuring machines operate quietly if the vibration is commonly generated by excessive moving parts and friction. When noise and vibrations occur within machinery, the machines can become easily worn down at a faster rate. To control vibration, one solution is to absorb it. Absorption can be completed through the use of damping compounds. There are plenty of other substances that can assist with absorbing vibration from different sources, including the following:

Oil: A more known way to absorb vibration is through the use of oil. If vibrations can be difficult to control, oil can assist with at least lowering vibrations even slightly. Oil is also beneficial when friction causes issues.

Springs: While springs are necessary to a known vibration damping source, they can assist with isolating vibration. Essentially, springs absorb energy and release it. Therefore, vibration becomes easier to control. However, users should be aware that springs can potentially break down and their applications are limited.

Rubber: Rubber is known to be better than springs. The material absorbs energy before releasing it in an alternative format. Rubber can also isolate vibration. However, rubber lacks the abilities damping materials have.

Polyurethane: This substance can be utilized to absorb energy within machinery. Polyurethane can also be used for isolation.

Sorbothane: Known as a top vibration damper, Sorbothane is a viscoelastic substance that uses old and new properties. Because of its many properties, Sorbothane can be utilized for damping and isolation. Furthermore, Sorbothane is one of the best technologies available. Sorbothane is also durable and can last longer while offering versatility. The flexibility of Sorbothane can be formed properly into many pads and various other items.
