ELASTOMERIC BEARING PADS


Neoprene Bearing Pads provide a uniform transfer of load from beam to substructure. They permit beam rotation at the bearing point due to deflection or misalignment. They absorb vibration and prevent sound transfer, while reducing the destructive action of vibration between movable and stationary structural members. They also provide for movement caused by normal expansion and contraction. Neoprene Bearing Pads are used extensively in bridge structures and prestressed and precast concrete buildings. Also used in industrial machinery and heavy equipment applications. Meets Standard Specifications for Highway Bridges, Fourteenth Edition 1989, Division II, Section 25 - Elastomeric Bearings, and AASHTO Standard Specifications for Transportation Materials and Methods of Sampling and Testing, 17th Edition, M251.
Also Available:
Natural rubber bearing pad material for colder climates.
Cal-tran material for the State of California to meet section 51, item 51-1.12H(1).
Note: Some states specify requirements other than standard AASHTO specifications. When ordering, identify all requirements or submit individual state specification.
Warning:
Exposure to chemicals, fuels, oils or heat can affect the performance of sheet rubber and cause the product to lose its ability to maintain a seal, causing leakage or other failure which could result in property damage, serious injury or death. Since each application is unique, consult the Tampa Rubber Customer Service Department for further information.
