Cushion Pads for Pile Driving

OVERVIEW of Cushion Pads for Pile Driving

Cushion pads are used to improve the pile-driving process, a common activity in the construction of large structures such as bridges and buildings. Piles - heavy beams of concrete, steel, or other materials are pounded into the ground by a large "hammer" attached to a crane. The cushion pad, which sits inside a "helmet" placed between the hammer and the pile, must transmit force while protecting the pile.

Cushion Pads have proven themselves in all types of pile driving applications. Professional Plastics has the ability to cut pads to your specifications on our CNC Router. Hammer cushion pads have to be strong to withstand the pounding and to transmit the driving force needed while protecting your equipment and the pile. Hammer cushion pads extend the life of your hammer while transmitting the maximum striking force to the pile.

Made of Impact-Resistant Cast Nylon or Phenolic, these cushion pads will absorb the initial hammer shock while transferring the power that you need to the helmet and into the pile. By absorbing this initial hammer shock, these cushion pads reduce the tremendous wear and stress hammers are subjected to, thereby, minimizing breakdowns and nonproductive downtimes. Damage to the contact point of the pile is also lessened often making it unnecessary to trim the pile which can be a time consuming and costly procedure. Nythane® Nylon is chemically formulated copolymer designed to offer an engineering material with the High Tensile and Compressive properties of Cast Nylon, with the impact and wear resistance of polyurethane.

Nylon Cushion Pads are offered in 3 specific grades:
  • Nythane: The unfilled, or "natural" grade of material, is yellow in color and displays exceedingly high impact resistance and tensile properties. Use considerations include environments with: Shock, Abrasion, Vibration, Impact & Moisture absorption.
  • Nythane Oil: - Using the same proprietary process as our Nylatech® Oil, our liquid lubrication impregnated within the polymer chain offers excellent surface lubricity. In addition to the advantages of Nylatech Nythane, use considerations for Nylatech® Nythane Oil includes the following environments: Increased Wear, Moisture Absorption, Increased Abrasion.
  • Nythane SL:The impact resistance of the Nythane copolymer with the wear resistance of Nylatech® SL (solid lubricant) result in the longest lasting material for the most aggressive industrial applications. Use considerations include: Extreme Wear, Extreme Abrasion

    Canvas Phenolic Cushion Pads provide tremendous impact resistance and stability while absorbing shock. Canvas phenolic is made from a medium weave cotton cloth fabric and mixed with phenolic resins to provide good wear resistance, low moisture absorption, and good mechanical strength at economical cost.
