PTFE top elastomeric bearing, as its name implies, has a layer of virgin dimpled PTFE bonded to the laminated elastomeric bearing to reduce the sliding resistance and improve the structure’s displacements capacity.
PTFE top elastomeric bearing
- Allow movements bigger than shear capability in plain surface.
- PTFE sliding surface with lubricants to reduce the friction coefficient.
- With dimples on PTFE for contain lubricant to ease the sliding movements.
- Excellent buffering and shock isolation.
- Withstand vertical load and suit to rotations of beam ends.
- In accordance with European standard EN 1337-2 or other international standards.
- Available in various shapes such as rectangular or round.
- Bridges with large spans, continuous spans, simply supported beam, continuous plate structures or large displacements.
- Support structures requiring less vertical but more horizontal weight.
- Materials: neoprene, natural rubber or SBR with PTFE top surface.
