sorbo vs airpad vs silicone for cylinder head dampening

sorbo
airpad
silicone

which would work best as a dampening material on the cylinder head
I use a pps cylinder head which already has an o ring where the piston impacts

Cup style piston head is what I would recommend. Add an airbrake if you don't mind tinkering with the fps effects it will cause.

Barring that, laylax makes sorbo pads for the cylinder heads or you could cut your own. There isn't a 'best' material. No ones taken these into a sound chamber and measured decibel readings or anything.

You could also opt for all of the above. Up to you.

I've heard sorbo compresses over time and loses it's ability to dampen impact, that's the main reason I'm looking for a new material/solution

Any dampening material you would put in a cylinder and compress under a spring is going to lose it's dampening ability over time. That's why my first suggestion was a cup style rubber piston.

A mouse pad is decent material for making your own. But as mentioned, it will compress in a short amount of time and stay flatter. With the spring and piston in the cylinder there is constant pressure against the padding you put on the cylinder head. BUT some mouse pads have a big wrist section for resting your wrist. That would work good but it would take up a lot of cylinder volume until is compresses a bit. I’m currently experimenting with that and I’d also like to try material from a doctor scholls gel shoe insert or bicycle seat cover. I just think it’s another journey for no real difference.

There are different strength sorbo pads. I have never had one lose it's rebound. They last for many years. Sorry, I cannot remember what strength I use.
But they stay bouncy for years
Mouse pads do compact over time though and silicone hardens the older it gets.
