Why is it important to choose the right mesh for every application?

It is not always easy to pick the right rubber mesh for your anti-vibration mount. The strength of our Patrini supports is the possibility to choose between the different rubber compounds to make them even more effective. When selecting the right product, it is important to consider the context and the environmental conditions in which the machinery will have to work.

Will it be in contact with oils or saline solutions? Will it have to work at high temperatures or really low ones? These are the questions that you have to ask yourself when dealing with our technical department.

In fact, there is no rubber that is suitable for all applications; each mesh has its own characteristics, strength points and weaknesses which make it particularly effective in a give application.

Types of rubber mesh for your anti-vibration mount

Natural Rubber

Let’s start from natural rubber (NR). This compound is extremely elastic and tough but struggles when is in contact with oils, fuels and aggressive substances. Moreover, also when it is exposed to direct sunlight and bad weather is not effective. To overcome these deficiencies and to meet the needs of our customers, we are capable of producing the same support in different types of rubber.

Nitrile Rubber

The nitrile compound (NBR), is an example of rubber particularly resistant to mineral oils and fuels. Moreover, its performances are excellent even when temperatures are especially high

Ethylene-Propylene-Diene Rubber

The Ethylene-Propylene-Diene mesh (EPDM) has a significant durability since it is resistant to ozone and to direct sunlight. Furthermore, it does not deteriorate when subjected to really low temperatures, typical of refrigerating machines, and to extreme heat.

Butyl Rubber

The butyl mesh (IIR-BU) has features that ensure a long life-cycle and is especially used when there is an asynchronous motor, with an odd number of horses.

Chloroprene Rubber

The chloroprene rubber (CR) is of high quality and is often used in applications where high temperatures are recorded. Moreover, it is resistant to some coolants. It is more expensive but is indispensable in certain critical applications.

Styrene-Butadiene Rubber

The styrene-butadiene rubber (SBR), depending on the cases, is used with the aim of making the natural compound more stable.

Nome Commerciale/Commercial Name Polimero/Polymer Sigla/Code
Caoutchouc Gomma naturale / Natural rubber NR
Buna Hüls, Polysar S, Soprene Gomma butadiene-stirene / Rubber butadiene-styrene SBR
Keltan, Buna AP, Dutral Etilene-propilene diene gomma / Ethylene-propyleen dyene rubber EPDM
Perbunan, Polysar-Krynac Acrilonitrile-butadiene gomma / Acrylonitrile-butadiene rubber NBR
Baypren, Neoprene Gomma cloroprene / Rubber chloroprene CR
Polysar, Butyl, Esso-Butyl Gomma butilica / Butyl Rubber IIR-BU

Collaboration with the technical department

The collaboration between our technical department and customers is fundamental. In fact, in order to create the most suitable compound it is always suggested to provide a sample of the substance that will be in contact with the rubber. Furthermore, a detailed description of the type of application and of other relevant details should be provided. On our website you can find a questionnaire that we recommend to fill in at the moment of the request.
After we receive the details, our commercial department, together with our technical one, is able to suggest the most suited anti-vibration support, fixings, regulations, costs and maintenance.

Customized anti-vibration mount

If the customers’ need might not be satisfied by a standard catalogue product, we are available to design together a prototype that has the requested characteristics.
