Technical

There are many different 'rubber' material types available (see list below) but based on our experience we narrow the range to those highlighted below which can satisfy 97% of AV mount requirements.   If in doubt about suitability for any particular environment or application, please call our tech sales department.

In most applications natural rubber provides the best solution in view of its inherent strength, abrasion and tear resistance.  It is also available in a wide range of hardnesses providing for different propoerties with in a constant shape/size envelope.
