TYPICAL APPLICATIONS:

Elastomeric bridge bearings, dynamic spring isolators, dampening systems, shock and vibration isolation, water tower lid seals, masonry pads, handrail shims, pads between structural steel beams, girders, and columns, pads between bridges, roof, beams and substructures, Railway-tie pad applications, building envelope connections, expansion joint systems, etc.

 

Dynamex Plain BearingsDynamex™ 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
COLOUR: Black
DURO: 60A and 55A (Other Formulations on Request)
FORMAT: Sheets & Cut-to-Size, Including Hole Patterns

 

Dynamex Laminated BearingsDynamex™ Laminated Bearings
Dynamex™ Laminated Bearings consist of elastomer material vulcanized to multiple internal steel shims. These bearing pads allow for more rotation and movement capabilities than plain bearing pads. Vertical load and rotations are accommodated through vertical deflection while horizontal movement is accommodated through shear deformation. Redwood’s expertise in elastomers guarantees the best material choices for structural applications in both urban and arctic environments.

PRODUCT: Engineered Structurally Reinforced Bearing Rubber
COLOUR: Black
DURO: 60A (Other Formulations on Request)
DESIGNATION: NR, NAT
FORMAT: Custom-made Laminated Pads

 

Dynamex Slide BearingsDynamex™ 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
COLOUR: Black
DURO: 54D (PTFE), 55A, 60A (Elastomer)
DESIGNATION: Improved Steel Reinforced
FORMAT: PTFE Bonded or Custom Laminated Pad

 

Dynamex™ Loadtex™
DDynamex Loadtexynamex™ Loadtex™ is a resilient laminated-fabric pad that is designed and manufactured comprising of layers of closely woven lightweight cotton duck fabric. Each layer is impregnated with an elastomeric compound containing mold and mildew inhibiting agents. The properties of Loadtex™ are exceptionally suited for the reduction of impact shock, vibration,  and structure-borne noise.

PRODUCT: Fabric Reinforced Pad
COLOUR: Orange
DURO: 90 +/-5
DESIGNATION: Fibre Reinforced
FORMAT: PTFE Bonded Sheet, Strips & Cut-to-size

 

Dynamex LOAD+

Dynamex™ LOAD+
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
COLOUR: Black
DURO: 75 +/-5
DESIGNATION: ROF, Fibre Reinforced
FORMAT: Strips & Cut-to-size

 

Dynamex™ LoadTherm™
loadtherm-whiteDynamex™ LoadTherm™ is a polymeric, load-bearing thermal break designed for use between structural framing elements which penetrate a building envelope. Thermal loss through conduction at structural connections can lead to increased energy consumption as well as the damaging effects of condensation on interior finishes and indoor air quality.

PRODUCT: Fiberglass-Reinforced Laminate Composite
COLOUR: White
COMPRESSIVE STREGTH: 38,900 PSI
DESIGNATION: LoadTherm Pads
FORMAT: 1/4″, 1/2″, 3/4″ and 1” Thicknesses + Washers

 

Dynamex™ Rainguard
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
COLOUR: Black
DURO: 70A
FORMAT: 1/16”, 1/8” and ¼” thickness.

 

Dynamex™ Joint Seals
Dynamex Joint SealDynamex™ 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
COLOUR: Beige
DURO: 46
FORMAT: Low Density, Closed Cell

 

Dynamex™ Shim Spacer
shim-spacerDynamex™ 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
COLOUR: Black
DURO: 80 – 94
FORMAT: Strips & Cut-to-size
