Solid lubricants embedded in metal matrix

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.

is high performance material with an evenly distributed solid lubricant throughout its metallic matrix.

  • Suitable for dry running at slow sliding speeds and high loads
  • Stick-slip free
  • High resistance to temperature and corrosion
  • Insensitive to contamination and edge pressures
  • Can be easily machined, if required 

Material properties 

deva.metal® is a family of high performance, self-lubricating bearing materials. The deva.metal system is based on four main groups – bronze, iron, nickel and stainless steel – each containing dry solid lubricant, most commonly graphite, uniformly dispersed within the metal matrix.

Important selection criteria are the sliding speed, specific load, temperature and other application specific influences.



deva.metal® can be easily machined and therefor provided in all kind of shapes, such as flanged bearings, plain bearing, spherical bearing, thrust washers and sliding plates.



deva.metal® is utilized many applications such as: 
Iron foundries and steel works, furnace construction, fans, foundry machinery, waste water cleaning plants, water, steam and gas turbines, pumps and compressors, food and beverage industry machinery, packing machinery, construction equipment, mechanical handling equipment and many more.
