VIBSORB ROF-PAD bearing pads were originally designed for use as tie plate pads for the railroad industry. These random oriented fiber (ROF) pads provide compensation for surface irregularities and non-parallel load bearing surfaces in precast concrete and building and construction applications. The reinforced elastomeric bearing pads can also be provided with a Teflon® surface for use in expansion bearings and pipe slides. VIBSORB ROF-PAD pad is scientifically constructed to give years of service under severe operating conditions.


• Pads can withstand compressive loads up to 7,000 psi.
• Pads meet D.O.T. and federal specifications for reinforced elastomeric pads and bedding of masonry plates.

Technical Specifications

• VIBSORB ROF-PAD bearing pads are made from a blend of recycled rubber compounds and synthetic fiber reinforcement.
• VIBSORB ROF-PAD pad is impervious to most oils and is resistant to the effects of steam, water, mildew and brine.
• The durometer of the VIBSORB ROF-PAD pad is 80±10 (Shore A).

VIBSORB ROF-PAD is manufactured in nominal thicknesses of:

English Metric
1/8″ 3.2mm
1/4″ 6.4mm
3/8″ 9.5mm
1/2″ 12.7mm
3/4″ 19.0mm
1″ 25.4mm

Other thicknesses are available by simply combining and bonding the above standard thicknesses. Thicknesses shown are nominal. Please contact Benchmark International for manufacturing tolerance values.


Can the VIBSORB ROF-PAD bearing pad material be cut to size in the field?
Yes, if configured with care by using a band saw with a fine tooth, narrow angle saw blade configuration.

Can holes or slots be cut in the field?
Yes. Holes or slots can be cut in the field using a narrow angle, fine tooth hole saw.

How is VIBSORB ROF-PAD material different from the MIL C 882 Vibration pad material?
VIBSORB ROF-PAD pad material has a lower durometer (80 duro).

What adhesive should I use to affix VIBSORB ROF-PAD pad to concrete or steel?
Benchmark recommends our #700 epoxy adhesive for optimal adherence.
