Bearing Pad – Fabric Reinforced Elastomeric

Fabreeka bearing pad is the original fabric reinforced, elastomeric bearing pad developed in 1936. Fabreeka pad is used to eliminate concrete spalling by compensating for construction irregularities such as rotation and non-parallel load bearing surfaces. Fabreeka bearing pad also prevents electrolytic action between dissimilar materials in construction. The preformed bearing pads can also be provided with a Teflon® surface for use in expansion bearings and pipe slides. Fabreeka pad is scientifically constructed to give years of service under the most severe operating conditions.
