It is a bearing pad for civil engineering and construction with fabric, fluororesin sheet, etc. as the basic material. It has an excellent self-lubrication and low friction coefficient as a low-speed and high-load bearing pad.

Main applications

Industrial use: Plant related/Pipelines/Storage tanks/Boilers/Flood gates/Others
Construction use: Beam support/Curtain walls/Transit corridor expansion/Gate slides/Others
Public works: Highway bridge support/Railway bridge support/Others
Others: Vehicles (Central plate slider and lateral plate slider of the truck)/Bearings material for extruded construction/Vessel movable carriage/Others


• Low coefficient of friction: A very low coefficient of friction can be obtained under low speed and high-load conditions.
• Smooth sliding characteristics: There is no phenomenon such as self-welding and stick-slip, the deformation such as expansion or shrinkage at the time of heavy load is smoothly absorbed.
• Complete self-lubrication: It is a complete oil-free sliding material which does not require maintenance such as lubrication.
• Simple design: Good workability, and since the thin plate is placed on the sliding surface, it is available in simple and compact design.
• Excellent weather resistance: It is hardly affected by the weather or climate even if exposed outdoors. Also, there is no rusting or corrosion, and the friction coefficient remains stable in the wide range of temperature.
