What are Vesconite and Hilube

What is Vesconite?

Vesconite is a specialized 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.

What is Vesconite Hilube?

Ideal for high loads with precision clearances in dirty or wet conditions.

An Exceptional Bearing Material

Developed to solve wear problems in unlubricated and dirty applications, Vesconite Hilube is a premium long life, low maintenance plain bearing material, which also gives outstanding performance when lubricated.

Vesconite Hilube is compounded from an advanced engineering thermoplastic incorporating a PTFE internal lubricant.

It has a very low dynamic friction (approaching that of PTFE) and an even lower static friction. The low static friction means no stick-slip problems in applications with intermittent motion.
