WHAT IS VESCONITE?

Vesconite and Vesconite Hilube are advanced engineering thermoplastics with a unique combination of properties specially formulated for challenging bearing applications. Tried and tested in countless industrial applications over the past five decades, Vesconite thrives in settings where traditional bronze and steel bearings often fail. In both dry, wet, dirty and unlubricated environments, Vesconite has proved itself time and time again as a long-lasting, low-maintenance alternative.

VESCONITE IN AGRICULTURE

Agriculture is a tough environment for bearings - ask any farmer. Traditional bronze and steel bearings have a particularly hard time of it, given the host environment of grit, mud and water. More often than not, the result is rapid wear to both bearing and shaft, and eventual failure and frustrating downtime. Not so with Vesconite. A unique blend of self-lubrication, low abrasion and high load-bearing makes Vesconite the ideal choice of bearing material for a variety of agricultural applications.

SAY GOODBYE TO REGULAR GREASING

Vesconite is internally lubricated with advanced internal lubricants. This gives Vesconite a much lower friction coefficient than other materials, even in the absence of external lubrication. Low friction equals low wear. And ultimately, low wear results in far less maintenance and downtime

MUD, WATER, GRIT... NO PROBLEM

Vesconite is far better suited to harsh farming environments than its traditional counterparts, steel and bronze, which require regular maintenance and resultant downtime - not to mention resultant frustration when things get busy. Thanks to Vesconite's unique mix of low abrasion and self-lubricating properties, it's one of few available Fit, Go and Forget solutions.

EASY TO MACHINE. EASY TO INSTALL

Vesconite can be easily machined on standard metal working equipment. It does not creep, deform or swell, and machines to precise tolerances.What’s more, Vesconite bearings are easy to install and remove on site. Again, no need for costly equipment. And no need for unnecessary hassle.

TYPICAL AGRI APPLICATIONS

HARVESTERS

HARVESTERS

Grease-free and dirt- resistant, Vesconite is ideal for a number of rotating and oscillating bushes in harvesters – steering shaft and kingpin bushes among them.

TRAILERS

TRAILERS

Grease-free, high load-bearing and abrasion-resistant, Vesconite is perfect for use on undercarriage pivots and tow hitches, regardless of the harsh terrain.

HARROWS

HARROWS

Low wearing and maintenance-free, Vesconite has been successfully used in this challenging application, where dirt, water and grit make for a harsh wear environment.

SPRAYERS

SPRAYERS

Vesconite can be depended on in those critical sprayer pivot points, articulating arms and steering bushes. Vesconite is not affected by chemicals.

HOPPERS

HOPPERS

Vesconite is a superior alternative to bronze in self-unloading hoppers. Grease and contaminant-free, Vesconite is a perfect material for oscillating bearings.

EARTH MOVERS

EARTH MOVERS

Vesconite is commonly used in earth-moving equipment, where high loads, oscillating movement, and low speeds are involved.
