Rubber is utilized as vibration absorbers, because rubber features a relatively high shear modulus when compared with other materials. This means when a rubber materials are shear stressed, i.e. stressed parallel for the cross-section, rubber might be stressed more before it might be permanently deformed. Put simply, when stress from vibrations is used to rubber materials, the rubber vibration absorbers or isolators can absorb greater vibratory stress before breakage or transferring the vibrations.
ARE RUBBER VIBRATION ISOLATORS Just like VIBRATION DAMPERS? Rubber vibration isolators are not the same as vibration dampeners. Rubber vibration isolators are widely-used to prevent vibrations from transferring derived from one of component or material to a different by stiffening or absorbing the vibratory forces. Examples of rubber vibration isolators are hydraulic mounts and anti-vibration mounts in industrial equipment and automotive engines. Rubber vibration dampers or dampeners, on the other hand, should disperse vibratory forces away from the assembly to the environment having a high damping coefficient, i.e. a strong capability to recover in the disturbance towards the steady state. Although rubber vibration dampers can reduce vibrations within your body, the vibratory energy is in turn dissipated as heat. Rubber vibration damping pads, vibration dampers for ac units, and archery stabilizers aka doinkers are examples of rubber vibration dampers.
How come CUSTOM RUBBER VIBRATION ABSORBERS PERFORM BETTER? These natural properties - hardness, elasticity, stress and strain resistance - of rubber can be enhanced in custom compound mixing, a niche of Coi Rubber Products. If the rubber polymers are compounded with special fillers and additives and custom molded from many years of expertise, the resulting technique is superior performance and longevity at significant cost benefits. With in-house custom compounding, Coi Rubber can instill low and high temperature resistances, sunlight and ozone resistances, chemical resistances, oil resistances, water resistance, swell resistance, plus more on your rubber vibration isolator or damper. Coi Rubber Products also houses an avid rubber-to-metal bonding department for the specialty applications.
