A Comparison of Rubber Hardness and the Indenters Used

September 20th, 2019 by

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.
