The hot exhaust pipe of a car is attached to its underbody by elastomer suspensions. They absorb mechanical vibrations and keep the exhaust pipe at a safe distance from the underbody without transmitting heat. They also reduce noise levels by efficiently damping vibration.
Silicones with their unique properites are the ideal materials for this application. They offer the perfect solution for exhaust-pipe suspensions, exhibiting constant damping properties over a wide temperature range and in all climate zones worldwide. WACKER silicone rubber is specially tuned to the required frequency range to filter out unwanted vibration.
