Vesconite is a high-performance engineering plastic that is widely used in the mining industry for various applications,

such as crushers, conveyors, screens, chutes, etc.

Vesconite can resist high abrasion, impact, and dust and provide long-lasting performance and durability.

Some of the benefits of using Vesconite in mining are:

  •  Vesconite has a high abrasion resistance and can resist wear from rocks, ores, minerals, etc.
  • Vesconite has a high impact resistance and can absorb shocks from heavy loads and collisions.
  • Vesconite has a high dust resistance and can prevent clogging and jamming of parts.
  • Vesconite has a low friction coefficient and can reduce energy consumption and heat generation.

  • Vesconite has a low maintenance requirement and can reduce downtime and costs.
  • Vesconite low friction co-efficient and high abrasion resistance is well suited to many mining applications.

Some of the applications of Vesconite in mining are:

  •  Vesconite wear plates and liners for crushers and conveyors, such as jaw crushers, cone crushers, impact crushers, belt conveyors, screw conveyors, etc.

  • Vesconite bushings and bearings for screens and chutes, such as vibrating screens, trommel screens, spiral chutes, etc.



  • Vesconite offers up to 10 times the life of bronze in harsh conditions and is hard-wearing and unaffected by dirty, gritty, and damp environments.
  • Vesconite prevents damage to machine shafts, eliminates time-consuming greasing of bushing parts, and has a low friction coefficient and high abrasion resistance.


Bronze is the traditional material used for bushes in mines. Traditional because there were no viable alternatives until Vesconite fit and forget bushes. The problem with bronze is that it does not always perform well in the dirty, often wet conditions found in the mines. Also, bronze parts are often stolen for their scrap value. Bronze works well as a bushing material if regularly greased, if dirt is kept out and if there is no moisture or water about. But these are three big “Ifs” in the harsh conditions encountered in mines.

Nylon bushings have often been tried in mines. However, nylon absorbs moisture – up to 9% by mass in a humid atmosphere. This causes nylon to swell by up to 3%. Swelling means that clearances are lost and unexpected seizures occur. Humidity also causes nylon to soften. This leads to the wear rate speeding up, and bushings squeezing out because they cannot take the bearing load. Vesconite’s water absorption is so low that any swelling and softening effects are negligible.
