Laminated Rubber Bearing

Types: standard laminated bearing pad and sliding laminated bearing pad.

Advantages: it has the advantages of simple structure, convenient installation, saving steel, low price, simple maintenance, easy replacement, etc.

Application: it is widely used in bridge construction, hydro-power engineering, and building anti-seismic facilities.

A laminated rubber bearing is a rubber block vulcanized elastomeric rubber with inner reinforced steel plates. This bearing is a kind of connection between upper structure and lower supporter. It has advantages as followings:

  • Sufficient vertical rigidities to bear and transmit normal loads;
  • Good flexibilities for rotation in any direction;
  • Considerable shear deformation to satisfy horizontal movement;
  • Perfect anti-vibration to reduce the impact of dynamic load.

An elastomeric bearing can also be bonded with PTFE plate to satisfy large horizontal movement in one or two directions.
