VMC Group Shear-Flex Series are Elastomeric Pad-Type Isolators that provide excellent high frequency sound attenuation. These isolators are typically found in industrial machinery when a failsafe design is needed. Shearflex Pads are very effective in preventing shock and vibration transmission in non-critical installations.

Shearflex Series are molded elastomeric pads in a resilient cross-rib design.  Standard sheet sizes are 18" x 18" x 3/4" thick and 18" x 36" x 3/4" thick. The segments can easily be cut to fit the required loading and shape of equipment bases. Shearflex Series are available in three load ranges from 20 to 100 psi.  The pads are molded in color-coded, oil-resistant, Durulene™ elastomer (weather-resistant) for easy identification and durability.

Shearflex Series offer exceptional gripping - eliminating the need for bolting or cementing in most applications. Shearflex Series may also be used in multiple layers to increase deflection and are available pre-assembled, cut-to-size.
