Natural rubber is the most important raw material used in the production of elastomers. Elastomers are also commonly known as rubber and form the basis for many vibration control products from Vibracoustic. Depending on the raw material, a distinction is made between natural and synthetic rubber. Natural rubber comes from latex, the milky sap found in the bark of the tropical tree "Hevea brasiliensis".
Elastomers are essential in automotive manufacturing, as they can be significantly deformed and still return to their original shape after release of the load. Due to this unique property, they are used by Vibracoustic in components such as mounts, springs, absorbers, and dampers.
