Damping Products Comparison

The following charts have been generated by dynamic mechanical analysis, DMA. The curves show the Tan Delta, representing the ratio between the viscous and elastic response of a viscoelastic material. A higher curve indicates a better ability of the material to dissipate energy, better absorption of the energy of impact or vibration.
