Tubus dampers

ACE TUBUS profile dampers are high performance damping elements made from a special Co-Polyester Elastomer. They have a high energy absorbing capacity compared with other materials. The TUBUS-series comprises 6 main types with over 120 individual models. The excellent damping characteristics are achieved as a result of the special elastomer material and the worldwide patented construction design. This enables us to  hange the characteristics of the elastomer material so that individual and distinct damping curves are possible. 

TUBUS dampers offer a considerable performance advantage when compared to other materials such as rubber, urethanes (PUR) and steel springs. A further advantage compared to other damping elements is the operating life expectancy – up to twenty times longer than with urethane dampers, up to ten times longer than with rubber dampers and up to five times longer than with steel spring dampers.
