Vesconite bearings are no grease, long life bushings and wear plates ideal for underwater and corrosive conditions.
Examples include bushings for stern tubes and propeller shafts, rudders, pumps, winches, stabilisers, davits, rim propellers and deck handling equipment.
Vesconite Hilube self lube bearings do not need greasing. Ideal for tough underwater applications, Vesconite gives up to ten times the life of bronze bearings.
We stock hundreds of sizes of hollow bar, rod and plate. Call us for quick deliveries based on our wide stock range.
VesconiteVesconite is a specialised thermoplastic made from internally lubricated polymers. Proved since the 1960's as an exceptional bearing material in demanding conditions, Vesconite gives low wear even in dirty or unlubricated conditions. Up to 10 times the life of bronze in dirty conditions. Vesconite has high dimensional stability and does not swell in water, in contrast to most synthetic materials which swell in water. For example, nylon swells up to 3% water and softens.
Widely used for pump bearing applications, in wind turbines and underwater renewable power bearings. To learn more about Vesconite Hilube, ask us at our booth.
