The Shock Isolator for the Bumper System 750008

Through our development work on a bumper system that would meet the requirements of FMVSS No. 215, “Exterior Protection of Passenger Cars,” the correlation between the physical properties of the compressible solid, and the mechanical structure and load-deflection characteristics of the shock isolator system has been clarified.
A number of silicone rubbers were investigated and their molecular weight and cross-linking density changed. The results of these investigations have been applied to the new shock isolator system of our 1974 model vehicles.
