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.

Properties Benefits
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.

Properties Benefits
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
