Vesconite is ideal for many marine applications. First tested as a stern tube bearing in 1977, it is suited to both dry and immersed applications – in fact water is an excellent coolant and lubricant.
Vesconite is extensively used for rudder and stern tube bearings. Vesconite’s internal lubricants make it eminently suited to upper rudder bearing applications where there are long periods between greasing or no greasing at all, or where water lubrication cannot be ensured when operating with light ballasts.
The hundreds of vessels equipped with Vesconite during the last 40 years – ranging from pleasure boats to tankers – testify to the desirability of long-life, low-maintenance Vesconite in marine applications.
