AFT Fluorotec have been manufacturing slide bearings for the UK construction industry for many years.
Slide bearings are becoming more and more common as buildings use steel skeleton structures and require the use of movement and / or expansion joints in the form of PTFE slide bearings.
The projects we have been involved in just over the last 12 months is vast, including the Olympic stadium and village, Edinburgh’s new Haymarket station, The National Performance Centre for Sport at Heriot Watt University and dozens of less high profile supermarkets, schools and car parks.
We work in close partnership with many structural steel companies, architects and engineers and find ourselves the technical partners for many of these projects when it comes to talking about slide bearings.
AF115 is reinforced PTFE material specifically developed for slide bearing and skidway applications. This material comprises a unique blend of filler compounds to give optimum compressive strength.
AFT Fluorotec PTFE skidway plates or Teflon skidway plates – are used to aid the skidding of topsides, jackets and other heavy fabrications.
