Die-Cut Polyurethane Gaskets/Spacers/Washers – Anti-Squeak / Anti-Vibration
What is a squeak?
Caused by a phenomenon known as stick-slip; this occurs when two or more surfaces have frictional properties where differences in the static and dynamic friction cause a shuddering movement. When this happens at high frequency, this movement generates a noise or a squeak; often amplified by the component’s resonance.
How to eliminate squeaks.
An isolation material must be employed to separate the two surfaces. Die-cut polyurethane gaskets, spacers, washers have excellent anti-squeak properties and are very cost-efficient either in standard or bespoke design.
The choice of material used for this elimination will then be dictated by:
- Flammability and burn rate
- Water absorption
- Abrasion resistance
- Energy absorption capacity
- Ability to bond to low energy surfaces
- Colour Fastness to light
- Insulation properties
- Sound absorption
Die-Cut Polyurethane Gaskets/Spacers/Washers are a natural choice for many anti-squeak and anti-vibration applications, especially in applications continuously exposed to stress.
We use highly accurate CNC digital cutting machines, together with the latest sophisticated nesting software, to produce a wide range of anti-squeak / anti-vibration die-cut polyurethane gaskets, die-cut polyurethane spacers and die-cut polyurethane washers.
Anti-squeak applications areas include – Automotive, Aerospace, Telecom, Electronics, Marine, Defence, White Goods, Communications.
