After months of design and refinements, Sanctuary has launched the newly redesigned and updated Sorbothane.com with a fresh new look, redesigned blog and a website that’s geared toward being extremely search engine friendly. www.sorbothane.com
Sorbothane®, a one-of-a-kind visco-elastic polymer, was first introduced in 1982. Primary applications included the development of shock absorbing insoles for the athletic and orthopedic markets. Sorbothane® insoles have been highly recommended by doctors, sports medicine specialists and professional trainers for decades. Sorbothane® insoles have proven to be the best defense against foot pain, back pain and impact-related injuries. Manufactured in the heart of the “polymer valley” in Kent, Ohio, Sorbothane® quickly gained worldwide recognition for its ability to achieve remarkable shock absorbing levels. This new material reduced shock so dramatically that it was actually featured on national TV programs such as “THAT’S INCREDIBLE” numerous times.
Since its introduction, 25 years ago, Sorbothane® has been used in many varied energy absorbing product categories. Sorbothane Inc. engineers supplied the NASA design team with a unique Sorbothane® isolator to protect shuttle cameras from the violent forces thrust upon them during launch. The Liberty Bell was successfully moved using specially designed Sorbothane® isolators. When Wilson® Sporting Goods needed a superior shock absorber, for their new line of high-tech baseball gloves, they turned to Sorbothane®. Most recently, engineers have devised a series of colossal “ball-in-box” Sorbothane® dampers designed to dissipate wind energy in the new Air Force memorial.
Sorbothane®, a proprietary material, is custom molded and specified by engineers worldwide for its superior damping and isolation properties and scientifically proven to be the finest cushioning material available. In many applications and laboratory tests Sorbothane® has achieved shock absorption levels of up to 94.7%. Unprecedented absorption levels are possible because Sorbothane® maintains stability and damping over a broad temperature range, enabling it to isolate damaging vibrations and impact shock in varied conditions. Its near faultless memory ensures a return to original shape, even after repeated compressions, making Sorbothane® ideal for a variety of engineering design applications requiring shock absorption, vibration isolation and acoustical damping.
After a quarter of a century of proven performance Sorbothane, Inc. continues to be the ideal choice for a variety of engineering design applications requiring shock absorption and vibration isolation.
