Welcome to GMT Rubber, the leading designers, manufacturers and suppliers of rubber-to-metal bonded vibration isolation mounts. Our wealth of experience, technical expertise and innovation enables us to provide the best solution for your industry requirements.
Since our inception in 1968, we have continued to apply our expertise to new sectors and markets. Today, we provide vibration isolation solutions which comply with technical and operational specifications for multiple industries including rail, construction, aerospace, marine, automotive and defence.
GMT's strict project management framework underpins our full design and application process whilst ensuring a high level of customer service throughout your enquiry. We will guide you through the product selection process to ensure that our solution not only meets your technical specification, but also takes into account commercial and lead time considerations.
Our customers can either choose from an extensive selection of over 70,000 existing vibration isolation products, or enquire about our bespoke solutions. From suspension bushes and spherical bearings to machine feet, sandwich mounts, and conical mounts, each of our mounts can be supplied off-the-shelf or tailored to suit its intended application. In addition, GMT can offer products manufactured in our specially developed rubber compounds, suitable for extreme operating environments.
All of our vibration isolation products and processes are created to exceptionally high standards, with certifications for the International Railway Industry Standard (IRIS), the Aerospace Standard (EN9100) and the ISO9001 International Quality Standard. In addition, our manufacturing facilities hold certifications for meeting the International Environmental Standard (ISO 14001) and the Energy Management Standard (ISO 150001). Our ability to meet international and customer-specific requirements means we have become a ‘Preferred Supplier' to a number of major global manufacturing organisations and we are now one of the world's leading suppliers of vibration isolation mounts.

A Comparison of Rubber Hardness and the Indenters Used
Isolation is defined by the level of reduction of vibration passed between the oscillatory system and its surroundings. For example, anti-vibration mountings act as an isolator and as a result, minimise the level of vibration transmitted from an oscillatory system to its surroundings. The rubber hardness of an anti-vibration mount is a critical factor in order to provide isolation. The hardness has a direct impact on the “stiffness” of a part, ultimately affecting how a component will perform in an application.
