Years ago, I tried similar materials on a few chassis...unsure if on any component parts. They worked terrific to dampen the thin chassis. Since you're using a Digibuss, a little experimentation with the Verastarr materials seems like it might yield some good results.  Place, peel and stick.
I'd say give it a go

Hmmm. Seems cheap enough to try. Might order some. Also found some copper products on the Cryo Parts site: http://www.cryo-parts.com/product/veristar-copper-damping/

The description says " Veristar" though. Wonder if it's the same company?

No, it appears to be a different company. I'm sure you noted in their description that the copper can conduct heat as well. If you get more specific and post some pics, maybe someone wii advise if you're heading in the right direction
