Vibration-insulation System (IMAGE) Samara University Caption The vibration-insulating devices will be made of metal rubber (MR material), a unique damping material developed by the Samara scientists and produced in the university's laboratories. MR material has the useful properties of rubber, while at the same time withstanding aggressive agents, high and low temperatures and other adverse external factors. The secret lies in the special technology of plaiting and pressing the spiral metal strands of varying diameter.
