Purchasing Snubbers / Finding Snubber Materials

Purchasing Snubbers / Finding Snubber Materials

Purchasing Snubbers / Finding Snubber Materials

     I need to select an appropraite snubber material for use in an electronics box that will be flown in space (So outgassing is an issue). I've been trying to a find a listing of viscoelastic materials or a supplier for circuit board snubbers and google has been coming up with very little. So far I've gathered that Solithane and Urethane may be appropriate materials. I'm not sure if the silcon based pads can be cut and if there are any issues with outgassing. Does anyone on the forum know of any suppliers out there that might just have a list of materials and some basic properties? The snubbers I would need would be in the form of short (1'' to 2'') thick strips long and (.25''-.5'') square.

They have lots of sheet materials and their finder chart is useful.

Also look at Berquest.  They have some materials that are predominately for heat transfer, which you may be able to cross utilize, that have an insanely spongy, dampening feel.

go to
for the outgassing data

snubber is not a common term. So google will be of less help.

Maybe a bumper like the 3M bumpon would work. You might need a screw on instead of stick on part because of the outgassing.

Thanks for the help.
