Damping Sheets

Industrial Soundamp E vibration damping sheet is a self-adhesive pad used for sound and vibration damping on metal panels. The adhesive side is smooth, giving complete contact with the underlying surface without air pockets or channels. Soundamp E is odorless, wear-resistant and impregnated to prevent the absorption of water. Both pad material and adhesive can withstand temperatures between -22°F and 248° F and are highly resistant to aging. To apply: Soundamp E should be cut to the desired size and shape before the backing paper is removed. It may be cut with scissors, knife, or die. Remove dust, grease, moisture and other foreign mater from the application surface. Peel off the backing paper. The simplest application technique is to bend the pad slightly and attach it along its shortest edge. The pad is then pressed firmly into place, preferably with a roller for larger pieces. This reduces the risk of leaving air pockets, which reduce the sound damping capacity. The temperature of the pad and application surface should not be below room temperature during fitting. Applications: Buses and railroad cars, ships and boats, generator enclosures, off-highway equipment, relay cabinets, bins, chutes, hoppers, and machine guards.

Damping Compounds

VBC Damping Compound imparts vibration damping and a shift in the dominant frequency. The resulting structure borne noise reduction provides a means of improving the noise transmission loss in many applications. Because it’s water based, VBC Damping Compound is especially recommended for new construction and for equipment that requires superior flame and smoke resistant materials. VBC is also Ideal for OEM use including bus, rail and marine applications and for treatment of any vibrating metal, wood, glass, ceramic and most plastic surfaces. It’s also used in fan and blower housings, duct work, bins, chutes, hoppers, machine guards, and stadium seating. Easily brushed, troweled or sprayed on surfaces, this highly effective compound may be painted to make suitable for outdoor as well as indoor usage. PDF Spec Sheets: VBC Damping Compound
