While the primary function of a gasket is to create and maintain a tight seal, gaskets can do more than that – they can also dampen and reduce sound and vibration. This function can be particularly valuable, and necessary, in applications where noise and vibration reduction are desired.

Applications where it is often necessary to reduce the transmission of sound and vibration include HVAC systems, industrial machinery and equipment, telecommunication equipment (including cell phones), computers, household appliances, and automotive and mass transit vehicles. Reducing the transmission of sound and vibration has positive impacts on the health and well-being of personnel, while also extending the life and performance of machinery and equipment by protecting internal components from damage.

Gaskets for damping vibration: materials

Vibration damping gaskets are suitable for absorbing the energy of vibration and sound. They can also have use in product protection applications and where protection from impacts and stresses must be reduced. If required, gaskets can be supplied with pressure sensitive adhesive (PSA) backing for applications where they must be fixed in place.

Materials used for manufacturing gaskets vary in their ability to reduce and dampen vibration. Examples of materials that CRG uses to manufacture gaskets for damping vibration include the following:

CRG can supply a wide range of gaskets for damping vibration. All our gaskets are custom cut to each customer’s requirements and specifications. We use the latest CNC production equipment and all stages of the production process are carried out under our ISO 9001:2015 quality management system.
