Squaregrip (SG)

Squaregrip (SG) is a high strength and stiff vibration damping material used predominantly in industrial applications where anti vibration is required but minimal movement is critical.

A key part of Farrat’s industrial applications portfolio for decades. Squaregrip is a high strength, stiff vibration damping material for machinery needing stiff vibration damped support with minimal movement.

  • Load range: up to 6 N/mm² (SLS)
  • Vertical Natural Frequency: down to 15Hz
  • Average Damping Ratio ζ: 12%
  • Standard Sheet Size: 1000 x 500 mm

Why choose Farrat Squaregrip SG?

  • High stiffness vibration and shock damping
  • Produced from high grade fibre reinforced nitrile rubber
  • Excellent oil and chemical resistance properties
  • Used extensively in Farrat machine mounts
  • Use in high pressure applications where Isomat and BR pads do not have sufficient capacity
  • Micro-damping of industrial machinery


In lower pressure applications it may be necessary to consider alternative materials such as Farrat Nitrile NBR. Farrat are happy to advise and provide technical calculations to specify the most appropriate material.

Where bolt through connections are required, Farrat Anti-vibration (AW) Washers and Bushes should be incorporated in order to allow free movement of the pad and to ensure that the bolt does not transmit vibration across the connection.

Anti Vibration pads and materials can sometimes be referred to as; anti-vibration, vibration absorption materials, elastomer, resilient material, isolation pads, vibration rubber, isolation rubber, damping material.

  • Impact machinery (e.g. Power Press Elastomer Bearings for mechanical and hydraulic presses, turret punch presses, guillotines, etc.)
  • General use for industrial machinery and hydraulic equipment
  • Metal, timber and concrete production machinery
  • Printing & packaging machinery
  • Textile machinery
  • Measuring, test and electronic equipment
  • Mining equipment
  • High-speed industrial doors
  • Components, modules and systems in elevator industry
  • Damping pads on Farrat Wedgemounts & Farrat Jackmounts
