Abstract:

The report describes research and development studies on a broad-temperature damping system known as Silent Paint. Materials capable of effective damping over the temperature range of -20C to 60C were developed and optimized. Research was undertaken on both acrylic and polyvinyl chloride based damping materials. Damping theory and polymer structure are discussed in relation to performance.
