In the early 1960s Beldam Crossley became one of the first UK firms to process PTFE Polymers. In the half century since then, we have established ourselves as a leading supplier of PTFE products. Construction companies worldwide rely heavily on our expertise in this field. We have developed our Crossflon® range of proprietary polymers to be effective in even the most challenging of environments. The range includes a wide selection of blended PTFE grades and offers unique performance characteristics that can be relied on. Beldam Crossley’s engineering and technical expertise, combined with our state-of-the-art manufacturing facility, enables us to produce products for use throughout the construction sector. From the simplest of machined components to the most complex assemblies, the same care goes into each and every product we create.
Crossflon® Slide Bearings and Skidway Systems
In the three decades since their invention, Crossflon® Slide Bearings have become a vital product within the construction sector. They are used to solve problems of movement caused by temperature change, differential material thermal expansion, settlement and natural forces encountered by high winds and seismic activity. Typical applications include bridges, shopping centres, hospitals, stadiums and airports. Beldam Crossley encourages a culture of innovation. This means that we work tirelessly to get more out of even our most successful products. Developing our Crossflon® Slide Bearings led to us adapting the low coefficient of friction technology to make Crossflon® Skidway Systems. These systems are used to aid the skidding of heavy structures such as bridges.
