Elastomeric pads for foundation isolation.

Fabcel®:

  • Industrial grade nitrile blend rubber (NBR) compound for harsh environments.
  • Resistant to most oils, water, steam and chemicals.
  • Temperature limits for continuous exposure are from -40°C to 93°C (-40° to 200°F).
  • The waffle shaped cell geometry minimizes the lateral expansion of the sides of the pad under compression.
  • Available in multiple layers to achieve an overall thickness from 8 mm (5/16") to over 150 mm (6").
  • Static load range between 0.017–2.07 MPa (N/mm²), 25–300 psi with vertical natural frequency from 5.5–40 Hz, and horizontal natural frequency as low as 3 Hz.

FAB-EPM HP®:

  • Mixed cell polyurethane (PU) foam, which can be supplied in different densities and in full sheet form (in which case the material becomes the base formwork for the concrete foundation), strips or blocks.
  • Specifically designed to provide low frequency vibration isolation for building and machine foundation isolation.
  • Impervious to most chemicals, alkaline solutions and oil.
  • Wide range of thicknesses available.
  • Static load range of 0.11 MPa (15.9 psi), with a natural frequency from 8–25 Hz.

FABSORB®:

  • Medium density, closed-cell polyethylene (PE).
  • An economical solution for the base and side wall isolation of concrete foundations.
  • Absorbs machine-induced energy, limits the transmission of higher frequency disturbances and provides isolation from ambient and induced shock and vibration.
  • Stiff material.
  • It is impervious to most chemicals and performs consistently over a wide range of temperatures.
  • Not subject to deterioration through water absorption and wicking.
  • Available in 25 mm (1") or 50 mm (2") thick sheets.
  • Static load range between 0.014 MPa (2 psi) to 0.069 MPa (10 psi) with natural frequency from 12–50 Hz.

Applications:

  • Hospitals.
  • Universities and research institutes.
  • Manufacturing facilities.

Options

Product reference:

It is possible to increase load capacity or reduce the overall cost of the elastomeric system by integrating a set of thinner, stiffer pads in parallel with a softer pad material to achieve a greater surface area coverage. Consult manufacturer for information.

Thickness:

Other thicknesses are available on request.
