"What happens to the absorbed vibrations?"
The law of conservation of energy states that the total amount of energy in an isolated system remains
constant i.e. energy can neither be created nor destroyed, but is capable of being transformed. Energy
can be categorised into 2 groups:
- Kinetic energy - motion of waves, electrons, atoms, molecules, substances and objects. This group
can be divided into Electrical, Radiant, Thermal, Motion and Sound.
- Potential energy- stored energy and the energy of position. This group can be divided into Chemical,
Stored Mechanical, Nuclear and Gravitational energy.
Therefore, through the use of specially engineered materials that exhibit high damping characteristics,
undesirable vibration energy is absorbed and converted/dissipated as benign Thermal energy i.e. heat. This
results in dramatically reduced vibration energy and unwanted noise. The outcome is improved bass clarity,
cleaner imaging, better dynamics, improved detail, an expanded sound stage and sharper video images.
Additionally, undesirable and anti-social noise pollution caused by vibration transference through the building’s
structure is greatly reduced. Family members in adjoining rooms as well as neighbours will appreciate the
