Lead-rubber bearings are another type of laminated elastomeric isolators. Here, a perfectly circular hole is made in the middle of a laminated bearing and filled with a lead core, which provides damping. This type of isolator provides more damping than high-damping rubber, typically up to 30%. However, as with all laminated elastomeric isolators, their vertical load-carrying capacity is limited.
