deva.tex® is a high performance self-lubricating sliding material with a glass fiber reinforced carrying layer. The machinable sliding layer consists of fibers which are embedded in epoxy resin. The resin carries PTFE as lubricant for excellent tribological performance.
deva.tex® bearings are available up to 1.000 mm and are characterized by a very high corrosion and wear resistance. They are insensitive to contamination as well as to vibrations and shock loads. In addition to standard dimension, special geometries can be machined.
