Gel based passive shock absorbers

gel passive shock absorbers to protect electronic equipment

Mustshock® is the Musthane trademark that offers protective systems against shocks and vibrations involving gel-based composites.

Mustshock® passive shock absorbers quite efficiently protect on-board electronic devices. Musthane has a vibrator used to simulate test situations for shock absorbers developed. These tests are conducted on the basis of a composite selected from our data base including more than 800 different formulations and combinations.
