VersaDamp(TM) 2000 Series vibration- and shock-isolation thermoplastic rubber (TPR) materials feature formulations that can be adjusted to optimize damping performance or durometer or both. Durometers range from 35 to 75 Shore A, and the TPRs feature widely varying energy control capabilities. The materials can be injection-molded into isolators and other equipment components, and can be used as anti-shock and vibration mounts for compactly designed devices with limited isolator sway space such as pagers and cellular phones.
