Elastomeric Bearing Pads NR

Elastomeric Bearing Pads NR


Multipurpose Neoprene Bearing Pads for Bridges & other Structures
_______________________________________________________________________________
Product Description Elastomeric Bearing Pads NR are based on high quality
Neoprene, with or without laminated steel reinforcement for load
transfer from superstructure to substructure.
_______________________________________________________________________________
Uses Elastomeric Bearing Pads NR have the following typical uses:
-- For resisting compressive, shear and torsional loads in
bridges and other structures
-- Provide a uniform transfer of dead load & live load from
superstructure (beam, transom, deck etc) to the
substructure (pier, column, abutment etc).
-- For absorbing dynamic & seismic loads.
-- For preventing sound transfer
-- Capable of resisting expansion and contraction strains,
creep and shrinkage of concrete
_______________________________________________________________________________
Advantages --Easy to install
--Durable with excellent resistance to weathering and aging
environment.
-- Manufactured in different shapes and sizes to suit
particular design specifications
-- Resistant to UV radiation and ozone exposure
-- Cost effective with minimal maintenance requirements

Standards --British Standard BS 5400
--European Standard EN 1337-3
--German Standard DIN 4141
--ASTM Standards as per test procedures (see Technical
Data section)
