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?
