Microcellular Polyurethane (PU) Elastomer
Cellasto is the trade name for components made of BASF polyurethanes’ microcellular PU elastomer. It is often used in place of rubber in shock absorbing applications due to its progressive load-deflection characteristics, smaller space requirements, lower weight, and superior durability.
Cellasto has been used successfully for over 35 years as the NVH (noise, vibration, harshness) solution in various segments of the transportation industry e.g. bumpers, spring aids, coil spring isolators, shock mounts and body mounts.
Aerospace applications requiring superior noise and vibration suppression can benefit from Cellasto PU elastomer based friction dampers and snubbers to control movement of overhead bins, passenger and cargo doors. Other possibilities include fixed mounts to protect sensitive equipment and cargo from vibration as well as seat mounts to improve passenger comfort. Larger scale applications such as engine mounts and even landing gear dampers are feasible. Let us develop a customized solution for your NVH challenge.
