Development of Vibration Damping Steel Sheet Using Thermosetting Resin 930022

Vibration Damping Steel Sheet (VDS), which is composed of two steel-sheet skin layers and a middle layer of viscoelastic polymer resin, has been applied to automotive parts.
For application to body panels, VDS needs several superior characteristics, such as, high damping capacity at room temperature and spot weldability as well as press formability.
VDS developed by sandwiching a thermosetting resin has the loss factor of 0.2 at room temperature, and can be press formed and spotwelded under the same conditions as for an conventional steel sheet.
