The effect of additives on vibration damping in Polyvinyl Chloride and Acrylic formulations

Eastman Plasticizers
This is a Past Webinar
Materials must have the right balance of elastic and viscous properties to provide effective vibration damping. Additives can be used in polymeric systems to enhance vibration damping.
In this webinar, Mick Funderburg of Eastman will present comparative vibration damping testing results of an acrylic water-based formulation and a PVC formulation with/without plasticizers.

Applications that could benefit from additives for vibration damping go beyond automotive (ie floor pans) to aerospace, marine, electronics and more.
