The buffer pad types
secutex – buffer pad is a polyurethane elastomer with special physical, chemical and mechanical properties and is the type of buffer pad that is used throughout the majority of the product range. Buffer pad products are used in industry as noise and material protection in places, where products and loads may be damaged under their own weight or during processing steps.
secutex – buffer pad can be made into virtually any shape. The in-house design and CNC-controlled mouldmaking, along with our application engineers, will find the right solution.
Buffer pad mouldings can be manufactured and reproduced quickly and cost-effectively. The manufacturing process offers many advantages. This eliminates the exactly-reproducible drilling of the holes that are used for mounting. Bolts or other components are simply included in the casting (see figure above).
Available in different degrees of hardness, the damping moment of the buffer pad can be optimally matched to the surface characteristics of the product. If the various types of buffer pad are combined, their product characteristics add up to new products that often enable alternative means of processing – a competitive advantage for many of our customers.
secutex Heat Heat-resistant buffer pad
For hot processing.
Non-ferrous metals, such as gold, copper or brass, get hot during processing and have a sensitive surface. Rollers and cylinders coated with secutex Heat protect bar stock during production; abrasion and run marks are reliably avoided.
Operating temperature up to 150°C
Apart from the positive mechanical and chemical properties, secutex Heat is an elastomer material for operating temperatures up to a maximum of 150°C.
Operating temperature up to 180°C
As an option, „Heat“ can be finished with an aramide fibre surface. The operating temperature thereby even increases to a maximum of 180°C.
secutex Soft and secutex SoftPad Buffer pad with a high damping value
Foam with varying degrees of hardness
secutex Soft is in itself stable, yet acts as a damping foam available in different foam hardnesses.The open-pored material is machined along with secutex buffer pad. Thus buffer pad components are produced that are easy to mount and are particularly wear-resistant, without sacrificing their high damping value.
Foam core with closed surface
The open-pored foam core of secutex SoftPad is covered with a closed outer skin. This prevents fluids or dirt particles from entering whilst the material possesses a very high damping value. It flexibly adapts to the contour of the load.
Soft on the inside, robust on the outside
secutex Soft and secutex SoftPad can be produced as a moulding (e.g. for boat supports and bearing surfaces for rotor blades). Mounting holes and threaded bolts are included directly in the casting – as is standard for buffer pad. The supplied components can then be mounted immediately.
