Self-lubricating. Maintenance-free. Tribologically optimized.

Products deva.tex®

With strong components to form a high-performance material: deva.tex®

We use the self-lubricating, high-performance sliding materials from the deva.tex® product family to develop modern sliding bearing solutions that operate reliably and without maintenance over long periods of time.

The deva.tex® material portfolio encompasses products with a wide selection of sliding and base layer materials to meet each of our customers' individual requirements. Our deva.tex® sliding bearings are corrosion- and temperature-resistant, can be used in chemicals and liquids, and are able to cope with even the most difficult tribological challenges.

All materials have an epoxy resin matrix with embedded solid lubricants. They differ due to various fiber reinforcements and manufacturing processes.

  • All deva.tex® materials are machinable
  • deva.tex® is characterized by excellent resistance to wear, even in the case of micromovements
  • High dimensional stability in water and other liquids
  • Great chemical resistance
