deva.metal® - maintenance-free
deva.metal® is a self-lubricating bearing material manufactured by
advanced powder metallurgy. It is fully compacted, unlike
oil-impregnated porous bronze materials that are weak by comparison.
deva.metal® is provided with an evenly distributed solid lubricant
throughout its metallic matrix.
deva.metal®, which is suitable for dry running at slow sliding
speeds and high loads:
- has high resistance to temperature and corrosion.
- will tolerate contamination and edge pressures.
- can be easily machined if required.

deva.bm® - maintenance-free
deva.bm® is a thin-wall, self-lubricating bearing material suitable
for hostile environments, high or dynamically loaded applications or
where lubrication is difficult, unreliable or impossible. It
consists of a steel backing with a deva.metal® bearing layer.
deva.bm® offers basically the same bearing characteristics as
- but is capable of even higher loads
- and offers an economic solution to many bearing problems

Cyl. bearings with grooves
deva.tex® - maintenance-free
deva.tex® is a high performance
self-lubricating sliding material with a glass fiber reinforced
carrying layer. The machinable sliding layer consists of fibers
which are embedded in epoxy resin. The resin carries PTFE as
lubricant for excellent tribological performance.
deva.tex® bearings are available up to 1.000 mm and are
characterized by a very high corrosion and wear resistance. They are
insensitive to contamination as well as to vibrations and shock
loads. In addition to standard dimension, special geometries can be

deva.bm®/9P - maintenance-free
deva.bm®/9P is a self-lubricating bi-metal sliding material. The
sliding layer is applied to the stainless steel back in a combined
The lubricant in deva.bm®/9P is microscopically distributed PTFE
which leads to significantly reduced friction and wear figures.
deva.bm®/9P is the optimum material for p>25 N/mm² and has its best
performance at slow speeds and intermittent service.

Cyl. bearings with grooves
deva.glide® - maintenance-free
deva.glide® is a self-lubricating bearing material that consists of
a high-quality bearing bronze with pockets filled with solid
lubricant and a thin film of solid lubricant over the bearing
surface to aid the running-in process.
deva.glide® maintenance-free bearings, without the need for
lubrication with oil or grease are recommended for large bearings.
- have a low coefficient of friction
- have high wear resistance
- provide long life

Spherical plain bearing
deva.eco® - marginal maintenance
bearings are thin-walled, rolled CuSn8 parts provided with depots
for use with lubricants. They feature high-load capacity enabling
compact, high-performing, low-maintenance bearing locations.
There are three basic variants:
deva.eco® 9 as variant with rolled-in diamond-shaped lubrication
recesses. This type is primarily designed to cope with cases where
surrounding construction elements such as gear wheels are oil
lubricated. Equally suitable are commercially available, pumpable
greases or pastes.
Like deva.eco® 9, deva.eco® 8 also has lubrication recesses.
However, these are filled with a solid lubricant, thus permitting
operation without additional lubrication.
If greater demands are made on grease supply, deva.eco® 7 with
end-to-end lubrication holes would be the type to use. This variant
is less suitable for oil lubrication due to its design.

loading and shock stress applications, construction machinery, bearings used in
handling and conveyor technology and many more.

GLYCODUR® F - maintenance-free
GLYCODUR F slide bearings have a copper-plated steel backing and a
porous 0.2 to 0.4 mm thick, sintered-on layer of tin bronze. In the
rolling process, the pores of this layer are filled with
polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) mixed with friction and wear-reducing
additives. A 5 to 30 µm thick coating layer from the same material
forms the running-in layer.
The good mechanical properties of the sintered bronze along with the
good sliding and lubricating properties of a PTFE mixture are
optimally combined in the case of the GLYCODUR F slide bearings. The
material composition ensures good dimensional stability and thermal

applications, pneumatic cylinders, medical equipments, textile
machines, agricultural applications , as well as in the office
GLYCODUR® A/AB - marginal maintenance
GLYCODUR A slide bearings have a copper-plated steel backing and a
0.2 to 0.4 mm thick, sintered-on layer of tin bronze. The key
feature of these bearings is the coating polyoxymethylene (POM)
layer with its relative thickness of 0.3 mm with lubrication
recesses for lubricating grease.
GLYCODUR A slide bearings are therefore insensitive to misalignment
and associated edge loading to a certain extent.
The GLYCODUR AB slide bearings correspond to GLYCODUR A slide
bearings by design, however their POM coating layer is 0.35 mm
thick. This allows subsequent machining of the slide surface by
drilling or turning already fitted bushes - also by reaming in
special cases. This allows to eliminate misalignments or obtain a
reduced bearing clearance.
All applications working in the mixed friction area using grease and
oil lubrication such as on slowly rotating transmissions or
