Introducing Our Latest Recommendation: The Vesconite Bearing

Many types of bearings are available on the market, but you must be careful to purchase a quality product at the correct price. Buying inferior bearings in order to save money now will mean expensive repairs, replacements, and possibly breakdowns in the future. Technoslide ensures that you have access to the best-quality bearing products at the lowest possible prices. And that brings us to our latest recommendation: Vesconite bearings. If you are looking for a hard-wearing bearing that can withstand demanding conditions and offers superior durability to other bearings and a service life up to ten times longer, the Vesconite bearing is the obvious choice.

What Is a Vesconite Bearing?

A Vesconite bearing is a type of self-lubricating thermopolymer bearing that outperforms traditional bronze and nylon bearings. It requires no lubrication, even when used in dry or dirty applications. This bearing has internal lubrication, a low wear rate, and exhibits very little friction during operation. All in all, it is an excellent all-round performer. Vesconite bearings are used in a multitude of applications and machinery in the following industries:

  • Agriculture
  • Automotive
  • Earthmoving
  • Hydro
  • Marine
  • Mining
  • Rail
  • Renewable energy

More About the Best Features of Vesconite Bearings

Vesconite bearings have the following key features:

  • Dimensional stability. When exposed to moisture, a Vesconite bearing does not swell, which means that there is no need to make allowance for dimensional changes brought about by moisture when these bearings are used.
  • Built-in lubricants. This ensures low friction and a long lifespan. Manual lubrication is never required.
  • High resistance to wear. This ensures an extended lifespan, especially compared to bronze bearings.
  • Unaffected by temperature fluctuations. In dry environments, the bearing can be used continuously at temperatures of up to 100-120 °C, and in wet environments up to 60-70 °C.
  • High load-bearing capacity. These bearings operate reliably within tight tolerances. Vesconite bearings have a high load-bearing capacity and their compressive strength is unaffected by water absorption.
  • Very low friction. Vesconite bearings have a friction coefficient that is less than half of the friction coefficient of nylon and bronze bearings.
