VMC Group Shear-Flex (Shearflex) Series are Elastomeric Pad-Type Isolators that provide excellent high frequency sound attenuation. These isolators are typically found in the sensitive electronic, communications equipment and weapons systems within transportable shelters as well as within the structure itself when a failsafe design is needed. Shear-Flex Pads are very effective in preventing shock and vibration transmission in non-critical installations.  

Shear-Flex 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. Shear-Flex 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.

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