VIBEX® products are available in a variety of formulas, depending on the requirements of the application.
The first VIBEX® was developed for use in motorcycle handlebars and also marketed under the brand name “Bar Buzz Kill”. Our original VIBEX® is tremendous for use in motorcycle / snowmobile/ off-road handlebars and as a general purpose product for reducing vibration.
Our VIBEX® customers in the Sporting and hand held product markets demanded a lighter weight VIBEX®. VIBEX® Sport was developed to meet this market and is approximately 20 % lighter that original VIBEX®. Markets are baseball bats, tennis racquets, golf clubs, lacrosse sticks, field hockey sticks, ice hockey sticks, line trimmers, hedge trimmers, Tennis shoes, etc.
Many of our VIBEX® customers are interested in reducing vibration, but also in increasing the mass of their product in specific areas . VIBEX® plus allows customers to specify the specific gravity of the VIBEX® to create a custom balanced product.
Original VIBEX® is not hydrophobic. It is not impervious to water and humidity. Many of our applications do require this property and VIBEX® HP fulfills this role. Designed to reduce vibration in products that are exposed to humid environments. Examples are: all outdoor power equipment.
VIBEX® High Temperature:
The use of VIBEX® in automotive engine compartments required a high temperature version to be formulated. VIBEX® HT is designed for use in environments as high as 200 degrees C.
VIBEX® Low Temperature:
VIBEX® LT is used in cold temperature applications like snow thrower handle bars. A low temperature VIBEX® has been developed that dampens vibration effectively down to -30 degrees C.
VIBEX® High Viscosity:
VIBEX® HV is an especially viscous material for vibration damping in extreme environments / applications.
Depending on the application, damping requirements, environment, weighting requirements, and temperature considerations, there is probably a VIBEX® that has been designed for your needs.
Our VIBEX® Sales Engineers and Chemists can help you determine the proper VIBEX® for your application or develop a new VIBEX® specifically for your needs.
