Cork composites for high performance

While cork has a higher loss factor than rubber – which is essential to the dampening function and consequent dissipation of energy – anti-vibration rubbers are isolative and offer very little damping. The combination of these two materials as a cork rubber composite brings added characteristics as a vibration isolatio…
