Thick Vinyl Vibration Damping Sheet
When it comes to vibration damping sheet materials, there simply is nothing better than VB-2HD. VB-2HD is a lightweight, highly formable, vinyl based damping material that contains a silica mica and ceramic load incorporated to convert panel resonance (vibration) into low level heat through friction. VB-2HD is odorless and offers excellent cosmetic integration characteristics and may even be painted to achieve the ultimate in OEM appearance.
VB-2HD will stretch up to 70% allowing it to conform to the most irregular shape imaginable without tearing.
When applied to the surface directly behind the door trim panel as a replacement for the flimsy, plastic vapor barrier, VB-2HD performs a variety of functions.
Primarily, VB-2HD acts as a viscoelastic vibration damper lowering the resonant frequency of the sheetmetal, plastic or fiberglass substrate. VB-2HD 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-2HD is also Class A fire rated making it acceptable for commercial and residential applications also.
Secondly, because the material is much 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-2HD product performs extremely well in this application to block this irritating road noise and prevent acoustical short circuits.
Professional automotive builders worldwide choose VB-2HD for the lightweight, high performance characteristics as well as for the extremely clean look of the finished installation.
