What is PSA?

4 months ago 442 Views No comments

What is PSA?

PSA is known as Pressure-Sensative-Adhesive. This type of adhesive is non-reactive, which means that it forms a bond when pressure is applied in order to bond the adhesive with the adherend. There is no need for water, solvent, or heat in terms of activating the adhesive.

3M Adhesive

3M Adhesive bonds metal to metal, HSE plastics, wood, and flexible materials that have a high schear and are temperature resistant.

Where to Buy?

Some of our products are available with PSA as others are not. If you need to buy your own PSA, we recommend that you purchase the spray adhesive known as #M #80. You can get this at Home Depot

What Are Anti-Vibration Mounts Used For?

Anti-Vibration Mounts provide excellent vibration reduction. These ultra-high quality anti-vibration mounts are made in the U.S. from only U.S. materials. They are specifically designed to provide the best vibration reduction possible. Each of these mounts is made from fasteners visco-elastic polymer. The visco-elastic polymer is made out of Sorbothane, our main material. The unique vibration damping properties allow it to act like a fluid yet retain its unique shape for millions and millions of cycles, which far exceeds the limits of other materials such as silicone, rubber and neoprene. Anti-Vibration Mounts are designed for compression applications in which there is a low shear force.

Installation: Simply screw the mount onto the item. Thread lock is recommended to keep the mount from vibrating. When installing, please use high-quality thread ,deforming lock nuts or double jam nuts, to ensure that your connections do not vibrate loosely.

This production is not recommended for high amplitude vibrations. This product contains plasticizer and may cause discoloration to materials that are in contact with it for extended periods of time. Made in the USA from US materials.

Metal-Sorbothane studs are available in three standard sizes that utilize both UNC and metric threads. Other UNC threads and Metric threads are available by specials orders.

This product contains plasticizer and may cause discoloration to wood.

Which part number do I select?

Using the part number 0510310-50-10 for the #8-32 thread 0.75" dia Male/Male Vibration Stud Mount as an example, the first part, 0510310, corresponds to the product and differs based on the measurements and product type. The middle part, 50, refers to the durometer. The end, 10, is used by our manufacturer and means that the product's color is black. All IsolateIT products are black, so IsolateIT part numbers do not end in 10. Instead the end of the part number refers to the quantity, such as 4 for a 4-pack. See below for our part number selection guide.

How to Clean Sorbothane?

This is a question that we get all the time! There are two different ways to do this.

1. The first recommended way for cleaning sorbothane is to use warm water and mild soap. Rinse the sorbothane thoroughly with a small amount of soap. Be sure not to soak it in water. For drying, let it air dry.

2. You can also clean sorbothane more deeply with using a very small amount of alcohol. Please do not soak. Be sure to air dry using this method as well. Please avoid the use of solvents.

Durability of Sorbothane Vibration Isolator Pads

Sorbothane vibration isolator pads are versatile anti-vibration pads that can be used as feet, stops, spacers and protectors in many different applications.

The unique Sorbothane urethane is a durable, resilient, polymer that provides outstanding vibration isolation and non-skid properties. These pads feature a top and bottom layer of heavy duty fabric bonded directly into the rubber surface. This fabric adds significant shear strength and abrasion resistance. Sorbothane isolators help absorb impact and noise and have excellent resistance to aging; they will not harden or crack over time. They feature a smooth, clean, black urethane surface. Use them on any audio and electronic equipment to prevent skipping and interference. Caution: This product contains plasticizer which may cause minor discoloration to wood, plastic, composite and other materials following prolonged contact.

Isolation Pad with Fabric Top and Bottom

Each of these Sorbothane vibration isolator pads can effectively isolate an object weighing between 200lbs to 1,200lbs depending on the Durometer. Load ratings are calculated assuming even weight distribution across the entire pad. These pads can be cut to size, the weight load rating of the smaller pieces will be roughly proportional to the surface area of the new pad in relation to the original surface area of the 2.5"x2.5" pad. They feature a fabric top and bottom layer, which adds to the durability and remove some of the tacky quality of raw Sorbothane. Durometer refers to the softness of the Sorbothane material. Softer Durometers have lower weight load ratings. See specific weight load information for the product.

Recommended Load Per Pad at 30 Duro: 200lbs to 300lbs (Part number 0510425-30-10)

Recommended Load Per Pad at 50 Duro: 300lbs to 600lbs (Part number 0510425-50-10)
