SORBTEX® Industrial Fabricated Pads




SORBTEX® is a high quality resilient structural grade elastomeric material that has the unique ability to absorb and dampen impact shock and vibration in heavy equipment applications.

SORBTEX® material is composed of multiple layers of the highest quality woven 8 ounce cotton-polyester duck fabric, treated with mold and mildew inhibitors and impregnated with oil resistant synthetic rubber. SORBTEX® pads have approximately 64 layers of the fabric/rubber laminate in one inch thick pad. SORBTEX® is manufactured to the military specification MIL-C-882 E, 27 January 1989. SORBTEX® properties are exceptionally suited for the reduction of impact shock, vibration and structure borne noise.
