Soft silicone free gel sheets from Gelmec Vibration, Noise and Shock Control offer an alternative to traditional damping materials such as foam and rubber sheeting. Simply cut from the sheet.
They are silicone free and do not contain any molecular siloxane gas. There are two materials available; ultra soft white UL V-0 55V gel and the slightly firmer black 80 UV resistant gel. Both operate at temperatures ranging from -20 through to +60 degrees celsius. The 55V silicone free gel sheets are available with a thin protective film on one or both sides to aid with handling. The side without the film is tacky to help with placement of the sheets.
Sheets come in thicknesses of 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 mm and have a 100 per cent stretch ratio and low compression distortion. These silicone free gel sheets have a number of practical applications. These include:
- Soft vibration and shock mounting solution for disk drives and other light components
- Hard disc drive surrounds
- Isolating enclosures for light components
- Moulding for fan gaskets
