How to Use Rubber Test Plugs
Rubber test plugs are used in plumbing applications. These plugs have a screw-back fitting attached to a dense rubber cap, designed to fit snugly into the end of a pipe. These caps are inserted into the end of the plug to temporarily seal it off. Afte
Reason and Advantage of Using Neoprene Elastomeric Bearings
Why Use Neoprene Elastomeric Bearings Neoprene bridge bearings - plain or laminated - elastomeric bearings are much easier to install in a bridge than compared to other types of bearing used and require nil maintenance. Unlike most other elastomer, N
How to Install Expansion Joints in a Concrete Driveway
A concrete driveway can be built with little experience , t he challenge is building it so that no cracks will develop. If you do not add expansion joints, cracks typically develop as a result of temperature changes or from the concrete shrinking dur
Expansion joints give bridges room to breathe
Abstract: Asphalt rubber is used for concrete bridge expansion joints in Arizona, to allow the concrete to naturally expand and contract without cracking. Article: We received plenty of questions, too, which well attempt to answer here on the blog in
What Is a Bridge Bearing?
A bridge bearing is a construction method that allows a bridge to transfer forces from its deck down into its foundation without damage. These bearings are used in bridges, but similar layers may be found roads, docks, airports and other structures wh

What is an expansion joint?
In building construction, an expansion joint is a mid-structure separation designed to relieve stress on building materials caused by building movement induced by: - thermal expansion and contraction caused by temperature changes, - sway caused by win
A bridge bearing is a component of a bridge which typically connects the bridge piers to the bridge deck. The purpose of a bearing is to allow controlled movement and thereby reduce the stresses involved. Movement could bethermal expansion or contract
Advantages of ptfe sliding pipe supports
The simplicity of the bearing design and its ease of fabrication and installation make the unit cost efficient. The costs of a construction can be reduced by designing for expansion rather than strain. Coefficient of friction over the bearing surface
Strict requirements for the Isolation Bearing storage
After 5.12 earthquake, Although the Isolation Bearing has been existing early, but people begin to pay attention to its technology. Because Isolation Bearing need to meet the characteristics of building use, such as long life, high performance require
