Universal Urethane Products has designed and created urethane disc bearings able to withstand the most difficult physical properties. Currently used in over 15 states, our spherical disk bearings provide the same load capacity and movement as Pot Bearings provide with even a lower profile. The polyurethane elastomeric disc in the bearing accommodates very high vertical design loads, at the same time maintaining its ability to provide rotation in both longitudinal and transverse directions. The size and geometry of the disc is designed as per the specific requirements of the projects. Unlike pot bearings, our disk bearings don’t rely on rubber seals to retain the elastomer, therefore offering the potential for greater service life. Not only does our disk bearings offer longevity but they are better performing in rotation and lower cost. Bridge builders all over the world are switching over to urethane disc bearings.
UUP has been certified in “ Hardness to Physical Properties” (AASHTO 220.127.116.11-1). Also, meets specification requirements of “AASHTO LRFD Bridge Construction”(Section 18.104.22.168 & Table 22.214.171.124-1).
