Product Description

Our Natural Rubber Bridge Bearing sheet is a high-performance rubber that is often found being use4d for elastomeric bridge bearing pads. It is mainly used in the construction industry and is compliant with BS EN 1337-3. This product provides an improved tensile strength as well as a great elongation at break in comparison to other, standard grades of natural rubber.

Bridge bearing rubber is often used to avoid damage by movements, most commonly caused my thermal expansion or vehicular movement. The natural rubber sheeting is used between supports to reduce the reaction force and any bending movement that may be caused through general wear and tear, keeping the structure safe and prolonging its life.

Natural rubber is highly elastic and sufficiently soft meaning it is able to absorb and isolate energy from impacts and vibrations.
