English term or phrase: slip membrane
Type of bearing for a bridge, though not used exclusively for this purpose. A slip membrane is produced from an ultra-heavy density polyethylene 2mm in thickness. It is used in sliding joints where low friction resistant material is needed, but a high resistance to load is also required. Normally used in two layers therefore to form a low friction load bearing sliding joint.

Any help greatly appreciated.
