This comment was made by an old farmer who had driven all the way from Mpumalanga to buy Vesconite bushings from our Johannesburg sales office.
We can’t help but agree with this sentiment – that any farmer who hasn’t tried Vesconite for bushes, and other sliding wearing parts is unwittingly creating unnecessary work and expense for himself.
So, what makes Vesconite special?
Vesconite’s self-lubricating properties do away with the need for regular greasing and equipment maintenance.
Vesconite’s low-friction translates into 3 to 10 times longer life compared to metal bushes, especially under dirty, wet or poorly-lubricated conditions.
Vesconite retains its material integrity and does not swell like nylon (which we also produce, by the way) when exposed to moisture.
Fifty years of field testing and applications across a broad range of industries, in over 100 countries, Vesconite has proven itself time and again to be the low-friction polymer bearing of choice, and a superior alternative to metal and other materials.
Originally developed in the harsh conditions of the Free State gold mines, Vesconite is as ideally suited to agricultural settings. Our successful applications include combine harvester steering shaft and kingpin bushes, pivot point bushes on planters, borehole pump bushings, front-loader bushes on tractors, articulating arm bushes on sprayers, and many more!
