Manufacturers use a damping grease in their device or component for one or more of the following reasons – motion control, haptic feel (quality feel) and noise reduction. When product designers are faced with reducing cost without sacrificing quality, a motion control damping grease can be a valuable tool and cost effective solution. Think about sunglasses holders or some types of cup holders that ease gently into position when activated in a vehicle. The smooth motion, quality feel and virtually silent movement are all the work of a damping grease.
We put together a test/comparison video to help customers get to grips with the Tribosyn 320 Series of damping grease that we offer. Unfortunately there is no formulation that exist to decide which damping grease is right for your application. When selecting a damping grease to obtain a quality feel in a customer operated device, the selection process can be subjective….one persons ‘heavy damping’ could be another persons ‘very heavy damping’ so often down to personal preference; the same can be said for motion control so deciding which damping grease to choose is most often a case of trial and error until you get the intended damping effect. Hopefully our damping grease stiffness/viscosity comparison video will help you determine which one of the six damping grease products from the range to try first.
