Marian manufactures die-cut components using highly engineered materials that are formulated for sound dampening, vibration damping, vibration isolation, and noise reduction. Many machines and devices produce unwanted noise and vibration as they operate. Vibration can cause damage to sensitive components, causing product failure, as well as the production of annoying noise.

Anti-Vibration Sound Dampening Material Solutions
Rogers PORON® Urethanes
PORON Urethane foams are an excellent choice for vibration isolation, damping and noise reduction. They are highly resilient elastomers with excellent resistance to compression set (material collapse) and exhibit good vibration damping characteristics. PORON urethane elastomers can reflect vibrations over long periods of time, offering stability in a wide range of environments.
Rogers BISCO® Silicones
BISCO® Silicone foams and solid silicone products are a proven, long-term solution to reducing vibration-induced noise and are designed to meet stringent standards for extreme temperatures and flames. BISCO Silicones meet many important aircraft, rail, and automotive specifications.
3M Vibration Damping Foil Tapes
3M Damping Foil Tapes are self-adhesive, made with viscoelastic damping polymers coated on a dead soft aluminum foil. They are designed for applications where there is a need to control resonant vibrations. Download data sheet
Sound Deadening Pads
Self-adhesive elastomer pads that suppress noise and vibrations. Pads can be cut to size and applied to structures to dampen sound and vibrations, such as vehicle floors, doors, body panels as well as appliance and HVAC systems. Download data sheet

Automotive + Transportation – NHV / BSR Reduction
Automobile designs require an extremely quiet experience for passengers. Buzz, squeak, rattle (BSR) also known as noise, vibration, harshness (NVH) are issues that can plague automobile designs and must be addressed to ensure consumer confidence.
Automotive – EV Battery
HEV battery systems require robust materials to protect the sensitive contents from vibration. Proper protection / cushioning extends the life of the battery.
Aircraft and Aerospace
Aircraft interiors require durable solutions to reduce noise caused by vibrations. These solutions must meet stringent aircraft standards for extreme temperatures and non-flammability.
For portable electronic products, die-cut anti-vibration components are necessary to protect sensitive internal components with good vibration damping and impact absorption.
Motors and rotating / vibrating mechanisms in industrial equipment cause noise, vibration and harshness. Materials for vibration damping and isolation can be incorporated to reduce the noise.
Consumers demand that home appliances continue to be more efficient, connected, and quieter. Proper motor insulation and vibration control are essential in designing today’s home appliances to operate quietly for the long life of the appliance.
Fans, chillers and pumps within HVAC equipment and subsystems can cause vibration and noise. Proper vibration isolation and damping are required for the equipment to operate quietly and without damage.
Medical Device and Equipment
Medical devices and equipment contain fragile components that are highly sensitive to vibrations. Device designs should include anti-vibration solutions in order to offer protection.
Case Study: PORON Gasket Used in Outdoor Camera System
When a company’s outdoor camera gasket failed to withstand prolonged exposure to extremes of temperature and moisture, and constant vibration from the wind, they turned to Marian for a superior alternative. Read more…
