TICO S Machinery Mounting Material
TICO S is a high performance machinery mounting material. It matches today’s fast changing manufacturing environment, where ease of machine mounting and flexibility of plant layout are prime factors. TICO S is manufactured from a blend of carefully selected cork particles and polychloroprene / acrylonitrile elastomers.
TICO S will withstand very high dynamic and static loads without physical breakdown. In machinery mounting applications, however, the recommended maximum static load should not be exceeded without consultation.
TICO S material is stable under widely varying atmospheric conditions, and is suitable for use outdoors.
Key Features of TICO S
Enables flexibility of machinery layout.
When used in conjunction with TICO adhesive, virtually eliminates use of anchor bolts and associated floor damage, providing major savings.
Retains properties throughout long maintenance free life.
Operational temperature between -40°C and +100°C (-40°F and 212°F).
Can reduce transmitted noise.
Wide range of standard sheet sizes and thicknesses.
Maximum static stress 0.35 MN/m² (35,000 Kg/m²).
Compatible with all types of machine base.
Can be supplied cut to size.

Typical installation of TICO S
Floor mounted plant: bolt secured
Location of TICO S/PA pad utilising floor bolts together with TICO S/CO collars and TICO S/WA and MS/WA washers.
Floor mounted plant: adhesive secured
Many people fit TICO S material as shown below... at a glance all appears to be correct...
The base has been bolted directly to the floor; this is correct. The TICO S pad has been placed between the floor mount and the machine this is also correct... The problem arises when the the machine has been bolted to the floor mount. The installer has NOT used a TICO S COLLAR or a TICO S WASHER... therefore some of the vibration of the machine is transmitted through the metal to metal connection in the Machine bolts to the Base and into the floor. Using TICO S Collars and Washers will maximise the efficiency of the TICO S Pad material.
Fitting the product as shown above will only work to a degree.
If your machine has to be bolted to the floor, we recommend TICO S Collars and Washers.
