Sorbothane Part number : 0531550-70-10 Durometer: 70 Shore OO
Sorbothane vibration isolator pads are versatile anti-vibration pads that can be used as feet, stops, spacers and protectors in many different applications. The unique Sorbothane urethane is a durable, resilient, polymer that provides outstanding vibration isolation and non-skid properties. Sorbothane isolators help absorb impact and noise and have excellent resistance to aging; they will not harden or crack over time. They feature a smooth, clean, black urethane surface. Use them on any audio and electronic equipment to prevent skipping and interference.
Primary applications include feet for small appliances, DJ sound mixing boards, electronic equipment, phones, keyboards, speakers, desk accessories, printers, laptops, computers, multimedia projectors, DVD players and audio receivers. The rubber pads can be used as spacers/dampers for automotive computers and circuit board rigidity and vibration isolation. They also work great for separating stacked glass and metal sheets. Sorbothane hemispheres can be used as non-slip spacers on medical tabletops, electronic assemblies. They are also useful as spacers to help protect delicate printed circuit boards from vibration and heat build-up.
Installation: Simply position the Sorbothane rubber disc and press it into place. The unique urethane material won't crack, dry, scratch or mar surfaces. It will last for years to protect and isolate your valued possessions.
This product contains plasticizer and may cause discoloration to wood.

I purchased the 70 durometer version based on my weight requirements and expected that to mean they should be nearly as hard as a hard hat. What I didn't realize is that the Shore hardness scale is actually multiple scales based on the material. These are more like the gumminess of a gummy bear. I have four under the legs of a stand I use to store records and my turntable. The total weight of the stand and gear is probably around 175 pounds, and this deforms the pucks quite a bit and makes the whole stand feel a little wobbly compared to how stable it was on just the leveling feet. However, they did do the trick. I can now walk past the record player without it skipping, which it was before due to some loose hardwood floor boards. If you have adjustable feet and uneven floors, I suggest leveling the item first, then putting the sorbothane pucks underneath the feet. It stayed level for me, and was much easier to adjust this way.
I first purchased a set to allow removal of the built in speaker bases on my John Bower One speakers so I could lay them on their sides without causing them to acoustically link to the surface they would lay upon. It worked and I feel that the wood cabinet is also well protected form the surface it rests upon itself. Score!
This purchase was for a far less esoteric purpose. A Visio 2.1 speaker system that I bought with subwoofer speaker built into the same chassis as the forward facing speakers (designed for the flat-screen to sit on top of it) was causing the flat screen's base to emit a buzz. - - - until I put this product between them and the unwanted vibrations were instantly and immediately eliminated.
I'm compelled to add that the softness grade numbers need to be better conveyed in their product presentations. 30 - 50 - 70 I'm still not sure but the bottom line as I understand it a 70 is softer and more tacky (yes the thing is sticky, but as far as I...
Too gummy... Too sticky... Will leave a residue on the surfaces.
