Sliding Bearings Sliding Bearings TICO Anti Vibration TICO Sliding Bearings accommodate large movements in pipework installations as well as many other types of structure. Comprised of two separate components, which work in tandem to provide a plane sliding surface with a low coefficient of friction. Maintenance free Very low coefficients of friction, typically less than 0.1 Smooth movement without slip/stick effects Accommodate both planar and rotational movements Provides noise and vibration attenuation Highly customisable Simple to install Working temperature range -40 to 100°C (-40 to 212°F) Can be supplied cut to size ready for bonding on site Type 1 Tico S/NG/PA Molybdenum disulphide loaded nylon with rubber bonded cork backing. Usually 2.5 mm thick (0.098 Inches). Type 2 Tico S/PT/PA Virgin PTFE with a rubber bonded cork backing. Usually 3 mm (0.118 Inches) thick. Typical lower member materials (chosen based on load). Type 3 Tico B/PT/PA Rubber bonded cork with PTFE surface. Maximum working stress 1 MN/m². Type 4 Tico RF/PT/PA Fabric reinforced rubber pad with PTFE surface. Maximum working stress 7 MN/m². Type 5 Tico PF/PT/PA Fabric reinforced rubber pad with PTFE surface. Maximum working stress 15.5 MN/m². Typical lower member thicknesses are 8, 14.5 and 27 mm, (0.31, 0.55 and 1.06 Inches).
