Question Liquid silicone filled vibration isolators?

I am looking for the manufacturer of liquid silicone filled vibration isolators. I think they are used in some Sony DVD and CD players.
Thanks
Rick

I do not think we are talking breast implants here - but what about the new Dr. Scholls insoles?

Really, banned by the FDA? What would they have to do with it? It's an industrial product. Where did you get your information?

Brian, that is incorrect. There are hundreds of silicone fluids and compounds that have FDA approval for direct food contact, surgical implantation, and ingestion. The only use that's banned is for breast implants, and that was a political, not technical, decision.

None of this is relevant for use in electronics- we use all sorts of materials not approved by the FDA.
