Getzner – The original
Getzner Werkstoffe is the leading specialist in the field of vibration isolation and protection.
Getzner Werkstoffe is the leading specialist in the field of vibration isolation and protection. The company, with headquarters in Austria, has been developing solutions based on polyurethane (PU) for the isolation of undesirable vibrations and noise for close to 50 years. Its Sylomer®, Sylodyn®, Sylodamp® and Isotop® products were all developed and manufactured at Getzner's own facility. They are used in the rail, construction and industry sectors to effectively reduce vibrations and noise, improve the service life of bedded components and minimise the need for maintenance and repairs on tracks, vehicles, structures and machines.
Getzner was the first company in the world to effectively solve vibration engineering challenges using polyurethane materials. Getzner deploys its many years of experience to meet the needs of customers all over the world.
The family-owned business was founded in 1969 as a subsidiary of Getzner, Mutter & Cie and is part of Getzner Holding. Getzner Werkstoffe and its sister company Getzner Textil can look back on a proud tradition stretching back over 200 years. With its roots firmly in the west Austrian federal state of Vorarlberg and its international operations Getzner stands for values such as integrity, trust and reliability.

Imitators on the market
Recently, increasing numbers of imitators have been appearing on the market. Our Getzner materials are sometimes shown for comparison along with the associated data sheets. In this way, imitator products are often promoted to customers as equivalent solutions, but a lower price on its own does not guarantee a solution that will work.
So, go for the original – you benefit from a customised solution and a reliable partner.
