Getzner unveils vibration isolation for sensitive areas

ADVERTISEMENT

Austria-based Getzner Werkstoffe recently presented a high-tech, polyurethane material for shipbuilding that reduces wear, noise and damage at METSTRADE, a marine equipment trade exhibition in Amsterdam.

For years, Getzner has produced an elastic polyurethane product named Sylomer, used in the bearing of ships’ floors. The new product, Sylomer Marine, was developed specifically for maritime use in the bearing of sensitive areas – such as cabins, wheelhouses or power distribution units, and direct sources of disturbance such as engines, generators and entertainment devices – to better dampen vibrations and oscillations.

Five different material types for various payloads are available in the Sylomer Marine product range. The entire product range has been certified to IMO Res. and MSC. 307 (88) FTP Code 2 and 5 fire protection standards and is globally approved for use as “Primary Decks Covering” in line with SOLAS regulations. It is maintenance free; resistant to saltwater, oils and greases; and free from environmentally harmful substances, according to the company.
