μ -Solator is comprised of a cell sheet which has dimples, about the size of a dime, and sliding sheet with special resin polymer coating. This is a totally new technology.
Cell Sheet which has several different dimples patterns on 50cm x 50cm metal sheet. Sliding sheet slides on this cell sheet.
Sliding sheets are secured together with tape and move as one piece. Friction factor of μ-Solator is 10% and the vibration on the sheet will not exceed 100gal which is equivalent to vibration scale of 5.
μ -Solator is only 3mm thick.μ -Solator can be installed flexibly so that it can be applied on the floor even with pillars, heavy machinery and the various shape of the floor. It is flexible and can be installed in a short period of time even if it needs to be reconfigured.μ -Solator can be retrofitted easily when a building is hit by an earthquake.
Its fixed vibration interval is infinite and it does not synchronize with a long interval earthquake.
