Engineering Plastics


Devlube® is a polyamide-based material that is self lubricating. It was specifically developed for dry running applications where low friction is required and normal lubrication is not possible. This material offers improved wear characteristics and excellent retention of physical properties. It is red in colour.

Typical applications
With a coefficient of friction of 0.04 to 0.08, Devlube® is recommended for a wide range of dynamic applications including bearing blocks, wear pads, cam followers, worm screws, conveyor components and impellers.
