All prod­ucts are man­u­fac­tured us­ing high­t­en­sile steel, in­cor­po­rated with OEM grade rub­ber (NR + BR) and pow­der coated rather than tra­di­tional paint­ing.

Mackay Founded in 1932, Mackay has grown to be­come a ma­jor Aus­tralian sup­plier of a di­verse range of en­gi­neered rub­ber and bonded metal/ rub­ber prod­uct for OEMs, de­fence force and the au­to­mo­tive af­ter­mar­ket. The com­pany’s com­mit­ment to high stan­dards in prod­uct devel­op­ment and ma­te­rial for­mu­la­tions re­sults in a prod­uct re­spected world­wide.

Know your prod­uct

Not all mounts and bushes are cre­ated equal, and ex­ter­nally you might not be able to tell. Many mod­ern Ja­panese, Korean and Euro­pean makes in­cor­po­rate hy­draulic tech­nol­ogy into spe­cific en­gine mounts and bush­ings.

What is hy­draulic tech­nol­ogy? Hy­draulic mounts/bushes have hol­low cham­bers filled with hy­draulic fluid and di­aphragms, pro­vid­ing su­pe­rior vi­bra­tion iso­la­tion that would oth­er­wise be trans­mit­ted to the chas­sis.

How is it bet­ter? Put sim­ply, hy­draulic mounts and bushes can op­er­ate in two fre­quency ranges. At low fre­quency they ap­pear stiff for max­i­mum per­for­mance, while dy­nam­i­cally in the high fre­quency range they are as soft as pos­si­ble. Only hy­draulic mounts can meet these con­flict­ing per­for­mance re­quire­ments, just like the OEM items they re­place.

Solid re­place­ment? Non-Hy­draulic re­place­ments are just a hol­low shell of­fer­ing poor damp­en­ing per­for­mance, when in fact the ap­pli­ca­tion was de­signed with hy­draulic tech­nol­ogy parts. Re­place­ment with a solid rub­ber de­sign will of­ten re­sult in re­duced life­span and an in­crease in un­wanted ve­hi­cle vi­bra­tions, mean­ing un­happy cus­tomers!

Look out for the hy­draulic teardrop logo (HYD) to be sure you’re fit­ting the cor­rect part for the right ap­pli­ca­tion with­out any hidden sur­prises.
