Vibsorb Vibration Absorption Pad

Vibsorb Vibration MIL C Spec:

The bearing pads shall be manufactured of all new (unused) materials and composed of multiple layers of prestressed 50/50 cotton-polyester blend duck, 8.1 ounce per net square yard, duck warp count 50 ± 1 threads per inch and filling count 40 ± 2 threads per inch, impregnated and bound with a high quality, oil-impervious nitrile rubber compound, containing rot and mildew inhibitors and anti-oxidants, compounded into resilient pads of uniform thickness. The pads shall withstand compressive loads perpendicular to the plane of laminations of not less than 10,000 psi before breakdown.

Can Vibsorb Vibration Absorption Pads act as an electrical insulator?

Yes. Vibsorb is partially made from rubber and as such has a dielectric strength of 12,500 volts (210 volts / mil) and a resistivity of 8.5 x 10e9 ohm - cm.  Natural rubber has an electrical resistance value of 10e15 ohm-cm for comparison. 

Vibsorb is a high capacity preformed cushioning pad fabricated using multiple layers of high quality cotton polyester duck fabric, completely impregnated with a high-grade nitrile compound. Finished Vibsorb Vibration Absorption pads will withstand compressive loads perpendicular to the plane of laminations of 10,000 pounds minimum per square inch without detrimental reduction in thickness or extrusion.

Benchmark stocks Vibsorb Vibration Absorption Pad pad material the following dimensions in Canada:

Vibsorb Vibration Absorption Pads are also available in cut to size pieces including holes, slots and other finishing requests. Benchmark also stocks the engineer approved epoxy system for bonding Vibsorb to a variety of surfaces including concrete, steel, PTFE and composite materials.
