HYDROPOL® - Special Concrete

with special damping properties

HYDROPOL® is a combination of steel casing filled with special concrete developed by framag.

  • Adaptation options with different recipes
  • Finite element simulation software for optimizing the properties (damping versus stiffness)
  • Flexibility, as the components can be changed at any time
  • Integration of stainless steel plates offers protection from corrosion where necessary
  • Temperature stable via heating and cooling lines, which means that the warm-up phase is no longer required
  • HYDROPOL® has a better thermal stability and larger thermal capacities than conventional materials
  • Damping via the robust and vibration-optimized construction
  • Tool wear is reduced by 15 - 20 %
  • Surface quality is improved through reduced machine vibrations
  • Electromagnetic compatibility (HYDROPOL® machine frames are CE-compliant and therefore comply with EN 60204 and DIN VDE 0113
  • 2/3 less CO2 is generated during the production of a HYDROPOL® machine frame compared with a GG frame
  • Environmentally friendly (eluate class 1); no separate disposal required


Density: up to 2,500 kg/m³
Modulus of elasticity: up to 60,000 N/mm²
Pressure-resistant: up to 100 N/mm²


Density: up to 1,200 kg/m³
Modulus of elasticity: up to 12,000 N/mm²
Pressure-resistant: up to 10 N/mm²


HYDROPOL® super light is one of the lightest Hydropol with a density of 700 kg/m³. Due to its low specific weight, HYDROPOL® super light is particularly suited to dynamic components such as carriages, slides and bed carriages. Despite its low density, super light has high dampening values.


700 kg/m³
Modulus of elasticity approx. 5000 N/mm²

HYDROPOL® XX light was specially developed to keep the mass of moving machine parts (e.g. carriages, moving columns) as low as possible. Despite the low density, HYDROPOL® XX light has extremely high material damping. This means that vibrations are absorbed as early as the tool center point level.


220 kg/m³
Modulus of elasticity approx. 100 N/mm²

HYDROPOL® plus - our answer for special applications! HYDROPOL® plus is an enhancement of our HYDROPOL® products with optimiced damping features for extremely quiet running. 


Density: 1,800 up to 2,200 kg/m³
Modulus of elasticity: up to 35,000 N/mm²
Pressure-resistant: up to 32 N/mm²
