Gelmec Vibration, Noise and Shock Control introduces the Supersoft Urethane Bushings made out of soft visco-elastic polymer to isolate vibration and absorb shock. The urethane bushings are damping coefficient across a wide temperature range (-15 to 98 degrees) and can absorb shock efficiently for millions of cycles.
The visco-elastic polymer features the properties of a thermoset, polyther-based, polyurethane material, which integrates shock absorption, good memory, vibration isolation and vibration dampening characteristics. Unlike other products, bushings can also be used in tension connections.
Customers can use two bushings together or a bushing and water to create a floating bolt that isolates the unit from any metal to metal contact. Distinct shores allow for different spring rates as load ratings assume a 10%-20% deflection of the material. This deflection is achieved by combining system weight and torquing the connectiong bolts.
