Shock/Strut/Dampner Bags

What Are Shock/Strut/Dampner Bags?

Dampner bags (also called shock absorber bags or strut bags) are a unique product that is used to control the aeration of oil in shock absorbers. When shock absorbers are in use, the oil in the reservoir gets severely agitated and mixed with air. This makes the oil compressible, so when it is transferred from the reservoir to the working chamber, this compression causes a momentary loss of control known as compression lag.

TBC's shock absorber bags provide a positive separation of the gas and oil mixture, solving the compression lag issue for vehicles. Using hydrocarbon vapor and nylon film, the air and oil mixture volume can be controlled and maintained, even at very high temperatures and yet is able to withstand significant use for extended periods of time.

Where are Dampner bags used?

Shock/Strut/Dampner bags were originally developed for use in automobiles. Along with the automotive industry we have since branched out into numerous commercial and recreational vehicle applications. TBC takes pride in being the leading manufacturer of Shock/Strut/Dampener bags through out the world. We currently have the capability to manufacturer 125 different bags.

Today these bags can be found in snowmobiles, ATVs, high speed trains, dirt/sprint track cars, and many additional applications.
