NOVODAMP® - Specific Micro-pore Polyurethane for Building and Trackbed Isolation Systems

NOVODAMP® is the latest innovation in elastic support of floating slab tracks (FST) and buildings of any size for stiffness modification and vibration isolation.

Since 1908, GERB is committed to vibration control, pioneering the use of elastic materials, including springs, in applications worldwide.

GERB offers a variety of NOVODAMP® pads and mats with different sizes and characteristics to provide track elasticity and vibration control for a broad range of applications. GERB NOVODAMP® pads are held to stringent quality control standards to meet industry demands. The research and development team performs static and dynamic tests per international standards. Project specific quality assurance (QA) programs can be certificated by independent institutes.

The characteristics of NOVODAMP® do not change over time, by temperature, static or transient loads.

NOVODAMP® class T is designed for elastic support of trackbeds. The elasticity is especially designed for today's demanding track applications. The material can be used as discrete pads, strips or as a full surface support. Reasonable frequency ranges are starting from 8 Hz and above.

The GERB engineered solutions provide the following benefits:

  • efficient mitigation of structure borne noise and vibration

  • material thickness minimizes construction height

  • low system frequencies

  • easy installation

  • constant mechanical properties over time

  • low construction cost
