Dynamex™ Plain Bearing Pads
Dynamex™Plain Bearing pads consist solely of virgin Natural Rubber (polyisoprene). They are available in various durometers and cold temperature ratings depending on the specification required. They may be used in bridge, railway, building and vibration isolation applications. Redwood Plastics and Rubber is able to supply materials which meet specification requirements for a number of different standards.
PRODUCT: Natural Rubber
DURO: 60A and 55A (Other Formulations on Request)
FORMAT: Sheets & Cut-to-Size, Including Hole Patterns
Dynamex™ Slide Bearings
Dynamex™ Bearings have the option to include a PROTEF™ (PTFE) top layer which equips the bearing with a sliding surface. PTFE pads are specified in situations where high horizontal movements are present. A stainless steel layer which serves as a bonding substrate is typically required between the PTFE and elastomer.
PRODUCT: Engineered Structurally Reinforced Bearing Rubber
DURO: 54D (PTFE), 55A, 60A (Elastomer)
DESIGNATION: Improved Steel Reinforced
FORMAT: PTFE Bonded
Dynamex™ LOAD+ fiber reinforced rubber pads are structural bearings with high stiffness. They are commonly used in applications involving higher load requirements and less rotational needs. Consisting of high-strength, weather resistant elastomers and vulcanized with synthetic reinforcing fibres, our pads are designed for Ultimate Compressive Strength is14,500psi.
PRODUCT: Random Oriented Fibre Reinforced Bearing Pad
DURO: 75 +/-5
DESIGNATION: ROF, Fibre Reinforced
FORMAT: Strips & Cut-to-size
Dynamex™ Rainguard is a nylon reinforced neoprene profile that collects and transfers rainwater under bridges and large structures. Custom manufactured to fit your dimensional requirements.
PRODUCT: Nylon Reinforced Neoprene
FORMAT: 1/16”, 1/8” and ¼” thickness.
Dynamex™ Joint Seals
Dynamex™ Joint Seal was designed to accommodate movements and provide a watertight seal for variations in joint widths through compression and tension. Manufactured with a low-density closed cell EVA polyethylene copolymer, the seal is bonded into place with a two part, modified epoxy adhesive. Grooves are placed along the edges to ensure an enhanced bond is achieved.
PRODUCT: Cross-Linked Nitrogen Blown Joint Seal
FORMAT: Low Density, Closed Cell
Dynamex™ Shim Spacer
Dynamex™ Shim Spacers are an engineered, multi-polymer plastic specifically formulated for use in the construction industry as a bearing and shimming material. Shims are commonly used for hollowcore slabs, architectural precast cladding panels, prestressed concrete walls, floors and structural components which are perfect for leveling and accurate placement.
PRODUCT: Engineered Multi-Polymer Plastic
DURO: 80 – 94
FORMAT: Strips & Cut-to-size
