Compressive loads withstanded by Sorbtex bearing pads

  • PDF


Time tested bearing pads for bridges and buildings.


SORBTEX can withstand compressive loads between 10,000 and 20,000 psi depending on the thickness and plan size of the pad.  military Specification MIL-C-882 details compression test on 2" x 2" plan size samples to insure a quality product is being manufactured.

Even though SORBTEX can handle very high compressive loads without failure, it is recommended that the compressive stress placed on the pads to be no greater than 2000 psi to accommodate safety factors and to allow SORBTEX pad to adequately dissipate vibration.  All vibration and shock isolators require the use of resilient materials.
