This material is durable for anti-vibration applications
Transfinity elastomer composite products specifically are designed for use in anti-vibration applications. These products provide elastomer compound formulators the flexibility to control damping levels and achieve the highest levels of dynamic durability. This new flexibility in material formulation creates opportunities to design smaller, more reliable, lightweight parts for use in automotive, aerospace, marine, rail and industrial vibration control systems. Transfinity products are composites made from elastomer latex (a liquid form of rubber) and reinforcing particles, such as carbon black. The products are produced in a patented process that creates composites that are stronger than conventional elastomer materials and can reduce abrasive wear by 50% as well as double the fatigue life of anti-vibration components. — Cabot Corp., Boston, Mass.
