performance is achieved by alternately laminating thin rubber layers and steel plates.etc. normally it is used in combination with N-RB or H-RB. while large displacements cause the rubber bearing to slide on the plate. Inner rubber Inner steel plate Cover rubber Features The inner rubber is protected from "UV rays" . soft in the horizontal direction. 80 SP Series(tA). which cause rubber degradation by covering it with an excellent weather-resistant cover rubber. The inner rubber and steel plates are strongly bonded using Bridgestone' s long-established unique technology.
