The present invention teaches a method for enabling the formation of a high damping composition. The method includes mixing a centipede polymer, i.e., a poly(disubstituted ethylene-co-maleimide) polymer, and plasticizers or extenders within a non-vulcanized thermoplastic elastomer to form a relatively high damping gel composition.
