PTFE dimpled sheets and PTFE dimpled disks are used in civil engineering as essential components in the design and manufacture of structural bridge bearings.
A bridge bearing is a component that connects bridge piers to the underlying structure and enables a controlled movement mostly caused by thermal expansion, wind load, structural adjustments or tremors.
This renders the structure more flexible and resilient to external stresses. PTFE is used as a buffer between structural elements to facilitate sliding movements of the structure.
