Bridge Bearings

Tufcot® bridge bearings are typically manufactured from our T100G material grade.

Tufcot® composite materials have an advantage over traditional materials. Tthey do not corrode, are not affected by UV or changes in humidity, are not biodegradable, need no maintenance and have an infinite lifespan.

This reduces the need for traditional metals such as steel which are expensive and can deteriorate over time.
