  • Improve acoustic isolation for both high- and low-frequency vibrations

  • Effective in both shaft couplings and motors mounts 

  • Take advantage of all-in-one solutions

  • Design smaller, lighter components that make full use of available space

Armrest, glovebox and console dampers

Pivots and track glides made with Cellasto® provide smoother, more effortless movement. In armrests, gloveboxes and consoles, Cellasto® delivers consistent material behavior and stands up to grit better than conventional elastomers to provide long-lasting performance.

  • Improve overall passenger experience and perception of quality with smooth, damped sequences of movement

  • Take advantage of easy assembly to add friction dampers in various applications
  • Simplify the design of friction elements
  • Apply to movement in multiple directions

  • Offer lifelong performance for pivot and glide components

Passenger seating

Amplify seating comfort by utilizing the unique compressibility and friction-damping of Cellasto®.  Design headrest dampers, seat rail end stops, and seat vibration decouplers with this polyurethane foam to make seat movement more fluid and reduce vibrational transmission to passengers.

  • Reduce resistance and eliminate squeaking in headrest adjustment

  • Eliminate noise and harshness at seat and travel endpoints

  • Improve support and isolation of seating for better NVH

  • Replace metal springs in seat tilt control with Cellasto® spring element

  • Design for components that require less space.
