Dry coupling of ultrasonic transducers to steel

What materials are suitable for building up dry coupling cushions? Silicon and PU-elastomers has a very low acoustic impedances even if they are filled by e.g. tungsten powder (maximum about 3 MRayl) . So the acoustic loss is large. Are there other materials which could provide acoustic impedances of op to 10 MRayls and more?
What acoustic impedances does couplants as sonogel have?

NEW! The PragmaPro Instrument Platform

The PragmaPro is based on a modular cartridge technology and supports various NDT instrument modal
...
ities such as UT, PAUT, ECT and many more. This new platform is based on a machined, powder-coated aluminum frame for shock-proofness, best sealing qualities and maximum heat dissipation. This is practical to extend the outdoor temperature range and/or to extend the power injected in the transducers. The PragmaPro is aiming at a very wide range of applications, such as weld scanning, corrosion mapping and composite testing.
