Protecting Components

Chamberlin offers a variety of sponges and foams that are used to dampen sound vibration in the light fixtures of the rail car. Since these materials are installed inside the metal casing with the wiring, they must be able withstand varying degrees of stress from constant vibration and/or high temperatures.

  • For high temperature applications, we recommend our silicone sponges like the Bisco® HT 800 Series, or a silicone foam like the BF1000 and BF2000.
  • Since many lighting manufacturers now use low temperature or low voltage lighting to improve elegance and add indirect lighting to the rail car, Chamberlin also offers our SC-41 Neoprene Sponge as a low cost alternative to the silicones.
  • All of the silicones and closed cell neoprene have been tested to meet the FST requirements for flame, smoke, and toxicity.

We can also slit and custom die cut our silicone materials and closed cell neoprene for this application, as well as apply adhesive backing if needed, but these materials cannot be extruded.

BF 2000

The high compressibility and durability of this ultra soft silicone allows it to adapt to various environments, making it ideal for sealing outdoor enclosures, protecting electronics, and various cushioning applications.
