Sorbothane, Inc. Innovating Shock & Vibration Solutions
For over 32 years Sorbothane, Inc. has been - and will continue to be - the innovative and trusted choice of engineers worldwide for developing materials and components that isolate vibration, attenuate shock and damp unwanted noise
Since its beginning, Sorbothane, Inc. has been committed to producing superior American made products - that protect and improve the quality and enjoyment of life.
Sorbothane, Inc. is located in Kent, Ohio right in the middle of the polymer capital of America. With 64,000 square feet of manufacturing space - and a series of custom built pouring machines - the Sorbothane team stands ready to meet any requirement. Sorbothane, Inc. has an engineering design staff and production teams that specialize in providing shock and vibration solutions that meet and exceed expectations. In-house testing, a quality assurance lab and efficient distribution combine to ensure accuracy, product superiority and customer satisfaction.
Along with an extensive line of standard Sorbothane® parts - Sorbothane, Inc can custom design and produce components that meet and exceed individual requirements.
Sorbothane® is a proprietary visco-elastic material that has been specified by engineers worldwide for over three decades. Sorbothane® is a highly damped polymeric solid that “flows” like a liquid under load. Its superior damping and isolation properties have been scientifically and real world proven. In many applications and laboratory tests Sorbothane® has achieved shock absorption levels of up to 94.7%. And Sorbothane® stays stable over a broad temperature range, enabling it to isolate damaging vibration and attenuate impact shock in many varied conditions. Its near faultless memory ensures a return to original shape, even after repeated compressions. Sorbothane® is ideal for engineering design applications requiring shock absorption, vibration isolation and acoustic damping. Produced in a durometer range from 25 to 85 - Shore 00 scale – Sorbothane® is considered a super soft polyurethane.
Sorbothane, Inc. serves widely varied market segments that all share the fundamental objective of - Protecting Product Performance and Enhancing the Customer Experience

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.
