Rulon® 957 │ Noise Reduction and Value

Rulon 957
 

Noise a problem? Consider the advantages of Rulon 957; a material specially designed for noise dampening and vibration resistance.  With a solid performance on coated metals like porcelain, Rulon 957 materials are often found on commercial and residential clothes dryers.

And this green-colored material can contribute to big savings in manufacturing, since it reduces the total weight of a finished product.  It is an excellent bearing-grade material with built-in cost reduction capabilities. Find the right Rulon solution for your application.
