More S PA Anti Vibration Pad Details

Suitable for the majority of applications where ease of installation and flexibility of plant layout are prime factors on installations. This anti-vibration pad is compatible with all types of machine base - individual feet (also see TICO Adjustamounts for precision mounting), cast skirts or flat base. Operational temperature range -40˚C to 100˚C (-40˚F to 212˚F) and a high load bearing capacity covers virtually all mounting applications.

TICO S PA Anti Vibration pad is a tough and resilient bonded cellular material. It is made from a blend of selected cork particles and polychloroprene/acrylonitrile elastomers. It is resistant to water, most oils, spirits and cutting fluids. The anti vibration pad material has a high co-efficient of friction and does not need a textured surface for efficient operation. The TICO S PA pad is identified by their reddish-brown appearance and printed TICO trademark.

The material is usually fixed to the floor and the machine with TICO Contact Adhesive S, but machines with a high centre of gravity (for example) may be bolted using nuts and studs. In this instance TICO Washers and Collars must be employed to stop transfer of vibration through bolts.

TICO S PA Frequently Asked Questions

How do you cut TICO S/PA Anti-vibration material?

TICO S PA can be cut easily on site with a sharp knife, however for large quantities, custom profiles can be cut in the TICO factory on request.

How much weight can it take or what is its maximum load?

The maximum working load of TICO S PA is 0.5 MN/m2, this equates to approximately 50,000 Kg/m2.

Does the thickness of the pad relate to its ability to carry load?

No. The maximum working load for TICO S PA Anti-vibration is the same regardless of pad thickness. The major difference between pads of different thicknesses is their response to the vibration seen in service. (The thicker the pad, the lower the natural frequency for a given load.)

What is its compression under load?

At maximum loading (0.5 MN/m2) compression is approximately 5% of original TICO pad thickness.

How do you fix pads and material to the floor?

There are two methods by which TICO S PA anti-vibration can be fixed to the floor:

(A) Bolted

TICO S PA can be easily drilled using wood working equipment, an auger bit being the most suitable. Helical flute drills should be avoided as the material has a tendency to run up the drill. If the machine manufacturer or customer wishes to bolt down their machine, then TICO Collars and Washers should be employed to isolate the stud.

(B) Bonding

TICO S PA can be bonded with two types of adhesive; 1. TICO Contact S - this is a contact adhesive suitable for the majority of applications including bonding to concrete, steel, etc. 2. Tiflex Marine 2 part epoxy system for very high duty or difficult applications.
