The slide plates are comprised of 1/4″ thick PTFE, 25% glass filled slide plates bonded to 1/8″ A240 grade 316 L stainless steel backing plates. Stainless steel was used for better resistance to corrosion and longevity. The assemblies measure 83″ long by 20″ wide and will be installed underneath a bridge. A total of 16 slide plates were fabricated and designed for a pressure of 500 psi at ambient temperature. PTFE, 25% glass filled material provides a low coefficient of friction, is easy to install, does not require surface treatments, or grouting, and is unaffected by weather conditions.
