SikaDamp® solutions comprise a broad family of sound deadeners based on elastomers, bitumen or butyl, which can also be coupled with a constraining layer. Designed for best-in-class weight-to-performance ratios, while still providing industry-leading damping performance, SikaDamp® can be applied at any point during vehicle assembly or installed at the stamping location.
SikaDamp® is versatile in application as a magnetic, self-adhesive, melt-adhesive or peel-and-stick product in standard and custom shapes. Placement and shape of parts can be highly tuned through laser-vibrometer analysis of the entire body panel system, which allows for targeted, cost-efficient use, while achieving maximum damping effect.
Ultra Lightweight Damping
Up to 80 % weight reduction compared with similar products. Targeted damping is a highly effective way to eliminate the noise associated with vibration in body panels. SikaDamp®-Ultralight is a constrained layer material which provides highly effective damping.
Constrained Layer Damping
Best-in-class acoustic performance, highly effective on doors and panels. Hybrid versions combine acoustic damping and panel stiffening in a single product.
Highly versatile for flat, curved, crimped, vertical, and overhead use. Can be applied throughout the body production process
Automated Application of Body in White Sealing Elements
SikaDamp® Autopad is a butyl based system especially designed for an automated application of sealing elements for sheet metal holes to ensure corrosion safety, water tightness, and a targeted noise damping function which can enable weight reduction.
Increased Stiffness Combined With Structure Borne Noise Reduction
SikaDamp® Hybrid is an advanced material system that adds stiffness and improves structure-borne noise performance of the treated components (e.g. a door panel) in a single product. It combines the high acoustic performance of SikaDamp® with a sophisticated panel stiffening effect.
