COMPOSITE DAMPING: SMACWRAP®
SMACWRAP® composite damping is a patented product to be integrated into your composite structure to bring a determinant damping factor.
Developed to avoid impairing the mechanical properties, SMACWRAP® composite damping is a thin viscoelastic rubber designed in roll form.
This innovative material offers to composite structure designers the possibility to integrate thin elastomer layers within the parts lay-up. Usually placed between existing structure and covered with a suitably chosen constrained layer.
In case of a crash or breakage, the SMACWRAP® incorporation blocks most of the debris
Reduces vibration and noise caused by carbon fiber stiffness
Provides flexibility in torsion or bending to composite materials which are generally extremely stiff
