SA-47 bearing pads

SA-47 bearing pads were originally designed for use as tie plate pads for the railroad industry. These random oriented fiber (ROF) pads provide compensation for surface irregularities and non-parallel load bearing surfaces in precast concrete and building and construction applications. The reinforced elastomeric bearing pads can also be provided with a Teflon® surface for use in expansion bearings and pipe slides. SA-47 pad is scientifically constructed to give years of service under severe operating conditions.

KEY FEATURES/BENEFITS

• Pads can withstand compressive loads up to 7,000 psi.
• Pads meet D.O.T. and federal specifications for reinforced elastomeric pads and bedding of masonry plates.

Technical Specifications

• SA-47 bearing pads are made from a blend of recycled rubber compounds and synthetic fiber reinforcement.
• SA-47 pad is impervious to most oils and is resistant to the effects of steam, water, mildew and brine.
• The durometer of the SA-47 pad is 80±10 (Shore A).

SA-47 is manufactured in nominal thicknesses of:

FAQS

Can the SA-47 bearing pad material be cut to size in the field?
Yes, if configured with care by using a band saw with a fine tooth, narrow angle saw blade configuration.

Can holes or slots be cut in the field?
Yes. Holes or slots can be cut in the field using a narrow angle, fine tooth hole saw.

How is SA-47 material different from the Fabreeka pad material?
SA-47 pad material has a lower durometer (80 duro).

What adhesive should I use to affix SA-47 pad to concrete or steel?
Fabreeka recommends our #700 epoxy adhesive.
