V-MAX is a lightweight, CLD (Constrained Layer Damper) vibration damping material that is designed to use sheer force to reduce or eliminate vibration. Weight is kept to an absolute minimum while producing the highest performance possible. We have the lightest weight material with the thickest aluminum layer currently available.
V-MAX features a lightweight buytlene layer that is bonded to a 4 mil, black anodized aluminum sheet. The butylene layer is loaded with ceramic microspheres which reduces the overall weight of the product and increases its resistance to heat.
The butyl, or adhesive layer, is very agressive and the bond will actually improve over time. Another characteristic that is unique to V-MAX is that it can be removed and re-installed easily. If you were to try that with a competitive material and you will destroy the product while trying to remove it.
In most automotive applications, one layer of V-MAX is all you will need to properly damp a vibrating substrate.
