Meticulously engineered 4” X 4” Sorbothane® pads can be layered and “locked” together to build a specific shock attenuating and vibration isolating assembly. A steel baseplate provides column strength and maintains the correct shape factor. A steel top plate can also be utilized. Layers of interlocking Sorbothane® pads are added - or removed - to establish the desired size and isolation parameters.
Sorbothane® is recognized worldwide as the ultimate material for attenuating shock, isolating vibration and damping noise. No other material can dissipate energy as effectively. Sorbothane is a highly damped, visco-elastic polymeric solid that “flows” like a liquid under load. Unique applications call for unique solutions. Engineers at Sorbothane, Inc. are ready to help design the ideal damper or isolator to meet individual product objectives.

Sorbothane - Engineering Design Guide
This design guide has been developed to assist engineers in a practical, hands-on approach to designing with Sorbothane®. This guide is advisory only. It is the responsibility of the user to verify the results. This guide does not take into account buckling or casting limitations of the material.
Sorbothane - Standard Products Guide
Sorbothane® is a proprietary, visco-elastic polymer. Visco-elastic means that a material exhibits properties of both liquids (viscous solutions) and solids (elastic materials). Sorbothane® combines shock absorption, good memory, vibration isolation and vibration damping characteristics. In addition, Sorbothane® is a very effective acoustic damper and absorber. While many materials exhibit one of these characteristics, Sorbothane® combines all of them in a stable material with a long fatigue life.
