Composite Materials for Heavy Trucking and Emergency Vehicles

Composite materials for heavy trucking and off highway vehicles

Since 1989, Polymer Technologies has been a leading supplier of energy management materials for emergency vehicles and the heavy trucking industry. We focus on improving the driver experience and the functionality of equipment to help manufacturers produce the most efficient and ergonomic trucks.

We’ve helped OEMs insulate engine compartments, passenger cabins, floors, walls, and firewalls to reduce the amount of noise, vibration, and heat transmitted into the cab. Our line of anti-vibration mounts and air and fluid hoses also help tackle energy and fluid management problems under your hood. Get the materials solutions you need quickly for heavy trucking and emergency vehicles with our fast turnaround times.

Acoustical Barrier Floor Mats for Trucks and Emergency Vehicles

Floor mats for noise absorption for semi trucks.

Stop the transfer of noise, vibration, and heat from entering the driver cab with POLYDAMP® acoustical floor mats. Easily create a quiet, comfortable ride while improving the aesthetics inside the cabs of semi trucks, firetrucks and ambulances. Our POLYDAMP® acoustical floor mats come with surface textures including ribbed, pyramid, and twist to provide additional anti-slip and abrasion resistance.

Thermal and Acoustical Insulation for Operator and Driver Cabs

thermal and sound absorbing insulation for semi trucks

Driver cabs are both homes and offices for truck drivers. Sound damping has become a big deal in the truck industry because creating comfortable, quiet, and ergonomic operator cabs improves driver productivity and safety.

Our POLYDAMP® melamine foams are suited for thermal and acoustic insulation applications in truck interiors including sleeper cabs, door panels, wall panels, interior trim, and headliners, saving significant weight vs legacy insulation.

Our solutions are certain to reduce the decibel levels within driver cabs and can be custom molded to meet your specifications.

Custom Molded Engine Enclosures and Insulation for Firewalls

3D molded engine enclosures for semi trucks

The heart of any truck is the engine, and heavy trucks and emergency vehicles can house a lot of power under the hood. To keep unwanted heat, vibration, and noise from escaping the engine compartment, we have several energy management solutions available.

POLYFORM® custom molded foam solutions provide direct noise source isolation and temperature control. We can work with you to develop a custom molded cover that acts as a heat barrier and attenuate sound for specific engine noise contributors, e.g. timing belts, fuel pumps, crankcases and valve covers, and thermally protect sensitive components from high heat areas or extremely cold environments. Our custom molded solutions can be specially designed to conform to virtually any shape.

Our POLYDAMP® Melamine foam is also exceptional as insulation for engine compartments to shield drivers from excess heat, vibration, and noise. All foam insulation is available and typically supplied with protective film facings that provide additional durability, heat and light reflectivity, and oil and water resistance. Film facings can ultimately extend the life and improve the performance of the insulation. To further reduce heat entering the driver cab of trucks or the firewalls of emergency vehicles, consider using our POLYTECH® aluminum foil-faced fabric.

Anti-Vibration Mounts for Heavy Trucking

Anti-vibration mounts for engines, cabs, and the components, including exhaust stacks, radiators, etc

Polymer’s solutions for heavy trucking include Duraflex®, a natural rubber blend with the ability to withstand high levels of shock and vibration. Duraflex® is used for the construction of durable rubber engine mounts, APU mount, and radiator mounts, exhaust stack mounts, and more.

While traditional rubber mounts deteriorate frequently and require replacement, Duraflex® scores as low as 0°F temperature rise on the Goodrich Flexometer Test, depending on the formulation That’s the lowest of any rubber, meaning these mounts won’t burn out on you. In fact, Duraflex® can last up to roughly a million miles, which is twice as long as traditional rubbers! For more information, explore our line of Duraflex® isolation mounts.

High-Performance Hoses for Air and Fluid Transfer

Air and fluid transfer hose for trucks and emergency vehicles

We offer a variety of high-performance hoses for air and fluid transfer applications in heavy trucks and specialty vehicles. Our hoses are designed to meet and exceed industry standards in flexibility, chemical resistance, temperature resistance, and pressure.

Common applications for our hoses include cooling, air intake, and exhaust systems. For more information about our air and fluid transfer solutions, see our High-Performance Hoses & Molded Rubber Parts page.
