Heavy duty shock dampeners

The high load-bearing capability and excellent damping properties of Austane make it the unbeatable material for many different types of shock dampeners. The stiffness and shape of the shock dampeners can be tailored to the exact requirements of the particular job, when they are manufactured from Austane.

Hollow-profiles made from Austane can be used as buffers and bearing bushes. The benefits are Austane’s tear resistance and maintenance free properties.

As well, permanent set is minimal even after loading at elevated temperatures and under high-frequency pulsating compression stress. Resistance to oil, grease and ageing is an additional factor in making Austane the ideal material for automotive shock dampeners, bridge bearings and crane buffers.

Other examples: shackle liner bushes in cars and trucks; buffers in overhead cranes.
