# What would happen if I combined this polymer and this metal (assuming I can) [closed]

So let me explain, I recently found out about a material called sorbothane (which is a polymer). Now, sorbothane is special because not only does it highly efficiently absorb shock, but also highly absorbs vibration.

However, when it does this, it temporarily loses its shape, so I was wondering, what would happen if I combined it with a strong yet light metal like titanium? (Note: I am 17 and don’t know a whole lot about chemistry.)

Once the reaction takes place, the there is absolutely no reason to assume the product preserves properties of both precursors. It might sometimes, but more often than not it's a completely different beast. Speaking of retaining physical properties in terms of logic and addition operation, in chemistry both $$\text{true} + \text{true} = \text{false}$$ and $$2 + 3 = -42$$ are possible. Mixing water and sodium won't result in liquid metal.
