Bridge Bearings – also called Structural Bearings, Load Bearings, or Bearing Pads – are essential to any structure that experiences internal movement and varying vertical and horizontal loads.

Poly Fluoro combines its expertise in PTFE with technical know-how in PTFE bonding and metal fabrication to produce high-quality, durable bridge bearings.
Poly Fluoro’s bearings are available in two forms:
Sliding Bearings — These are flat bearings comprising two sliding elements — PTFE and polished stainless steel. They are generally employed for loads less than 100 tonnes.
|Compressive loads of up to 300kg/cm2||Smaller bearings capable of taking high loads|
|Coefficient of friction as low as 0.03||Smooth sliding movement every time|
|In-house design capability||Customised for rotation, load upliftment, and guided movements|
POT-PTFE Bearings — These bearings are slightly more complex in nature. Their structural design strictly follows the IRC: 83 Part III Code generally employed for loads of 50 tonnes or more.
|Manufactured as per IRC:83 (RDSO) standards||Meeting highest industry standards|
|Loads from 100 to 500 Tonnes||Bearings to suit every load application|
|In-house design capability||Customised for rotation, load upliftment, and guided movement|
Poly Fluoro is an RDSO approved manufacturer of PTFE Bearings and POT-PTFE Bearings. Our products usually employ virgin PTFE sheets or PTFE with a 15% glass filling. This gives us better creep properties than other fillers without compromising on the coefficients of friction. We also provide bronze, carbon, and MoS2 fillers.
