ARE CHEMICALS A PROBLEM?

PERHAPS WE HAVE A BEARING FOR YOU

The Vesconite range of bearing materials, including Vesconite, Vesconite Hilube and Vesconite Superlube, are resistant to, and remain unaffected by:

Many
Acids

Mild Alkalis

Organic Chemicals

Solvents

Hydro-carbons

Oils and Fuels

VESCONITE CHEMICAL RESISTANCE CHART

Vesconite has a wide range of chemical resistance, including resistance to many acids, mild alkalis, organic chemicals, solvents, hydrocarbons, oils and fuels. The resistance data are estimates. The aggressiveness of the chemical solutions generally increases with higher concentrations and rising temperatures. While general guidelines may be provide every application needs to be considered individually. It is recommended that the resistance be checked in practical field tests in the solutions in question.

VESCONITE BEARINGS’ MOST RECENT CASE STUDIES

Some of Vesconite’s most recent case studies demonstrate our materials’ ability to remain unaffected by chemicals. These include those that show how the materials have been successfully used in environments in which:-

  • Cleaning chemicals are present (Stories 1 and 2)
  • Water has been contaminated with mine, agriculture, household and industrial chemicals (Stories 3, 4 and 7)
  • Chemicals are present that control weeds, insects and diseases (Story 5)
  • Petrochemicals are in use, including liquefied petroleum gas (LPG)
    (Story 6)
  • Acids, bases and dry and wet waste are present (Story 8)
  • Water is being treated (Story 9)
