deva.bm® is a metallic composite material consisting of a steel strip as a supporting backing and a sintered-on, self-lubricating bronze sliding layer. The solid lubricant (graphite or PTFE) dispersed in the sliding layer under preload enables the sliding bearing to be used without the need for maintenance.
The maintenance-free and self-lubricating material is available in different alloy variants and material thicknesses. The two-layer material structure enables the implementation of compact and highly resilient sliding bearing concepts that function reliably.
The percentage content of solid lubricant as well as its particle form and distribution vary depending on the alloy.
For different requirements, we choose between four different microstructures and additionally distinguish between further features such as: Type of steel backing, with and without oil impregnation, surface structure, and additional solid lubricant deposits.
