Thin Vinyl Vibration Damping Sheet
When it comes to thin vibration damping sheet materials, there simply is nothing better than VB-2 (.040) . VB-2 is a lightweight, highly formable, vinyl based damping sheet that contains a silica mica and ceramic load incorporated to convert panel resonance (vibration) into low level heat through friction. The VB-2 product is odorless and offers excellent cosmetic integration characteristics and may even be painted to achieve the ultimate in OEM appearance.
When applied to the surface directly behind the door trim panel as a replacement for the flimsy, plastic vapor barrier, the VB-2 product performs a variety of functions.
Primarily, it acts as a viscoelastic vibration damper lowering the resonant frequency of the sheetmetal, plastic or fiberglass substrate. VB-2 will effectively turn the door into a much more solid enclosure instead of the "tin can" that comes from the auto manufacturer. The product features an extremely aggressive, modified acrylic adhesive that is stable to 250°. VB-2 is also Class A fire rated making it acceptable for commercial and residential applications.
Secondly, because the material is more dense than flimsy plastic, it acts as a vapor barrier and airborne sound barrier when applied over the access holes leading into a door cavity. Low to mid and high frequency road noise may enter a passenger compartment through the doors as well as back wave energy from door mounted speaker systems. The VB-2 product performs very well in this application to block this irritating road noise and prevent acoustical short circuits.
Professional automotive builders worldwide choose VB-2 for the lightweight, high performance characteristics as well as for the extremely clean look of the finished installation.
