Elastomeric bearing pad, can be classified into plain elastomeric bearing, laminated bearing pad and PTFE sliding elastomeric bearing.
Non-reinforced elastomeric bearing, solid blocks of rubber without reinforced layers, is widely used for prefabricated structures.
Laminated elastomeric bearing pad with steel plate sandwiched with rubber is resistant to tension, compression and shear.
PTFE sliding elastomeric bearing with a layer of PTFE is suitable for bridges with high displacement and low vertical loads.
Pot bearing, made of elastomeric pad embedded into the steel plate is divided into fixed bearing, guided bearing and free pot bearing.
Spherical bearing, with fixed, guided and free sliding type is suitable for more complex bridges in low temperature regions.
Seismic isolation bearing, including high damping rubber bearing and lead rubber bearing, is suitable for structures needs seismic isolation function.
Lead rubber bearing featuring large ductility can move freely and absorb most earthquake energy, to avoid structural damage.
High damping rubber bearing, made of high damping rubber, features high flexibility and excellent restoring ability.
