Sorbothane is a crucial component of the “Silent Feet” products, used to stop washing machine walking, and other tasks that require isolation of vibrations. The post explains that while stopping washing machine walking may be Sorbothane's most widely appreciated application, there are also other useful product lines based on this space-age material.

“Without Sorbothane the world would definitely be a noisier place, as there could be no ‘Silent Feet’ or other products that stop washing machine walking,” explained Rj Yozwiak, Manager of Vibration Solution. “Fortunately NASA’s space-age technology has been brought down to Earth to improve daily life, most notably in the laundry room. But Sorbothane’s utility does not stop there, as detailed in our updated blog post.”

Details of Sorbothane's Utility as an Anti-Vibration Pad Materials

The blog post goes into details, but here is a summary. In the 34 years since Sorbothane was first manufactured there has yet to be developed any other material that so ideally combines the low cost and extreme versatility of Sorbothane. It it used in situations where absorbing vibrations is the goal, such as the situation of washing machine walking. Sorbothane, a one-of-a-kind visco elastic polymer (sometimes figuratively described as “rubber on steroids”), was first introduced in 1982. Development was funded by NASA, and initial applications were in the space program. Manufactured in America (in Kent, Ohio), Sorbothane quickly gained recognition for its ability to achieve remarkable shock absorbing levels, needed for rocket flight. The technology was soon brought “down to earth,” and terrestrial applications quickly followed.
