DuPontTM Krytox® Fluorinated Oils & Greases
Originally developed for the U.S. Space Program, Krytox® Performance Lubricants are a family of fluorinated synthetic oils and PTFE thickened greases that perform where conventional lubricants fail. Krytox® Lubricants exhibit superior lubricity, high load carrying ability and extra wear protection. Excellent for high temperature applications and chemically aggressive environments. Available in general purpose, mil-spec grade and food grades. Some lubricants also have a National Stock Number.
High Temperature Stability, up to 800°F / 426°C
Wide Operating Range, from -103°F (-75°C) to greater than 800°F (426°C), compared with hydrocarbon lubricants with an operating range of 0°F (-18°C) to 210°F (98°C).
Oxygen Compatibility, safe for oxygen service.
Chemical Inertness. Insoluble in hydrocarbons, petroleum distillates, water, steam, chemical solvents and acids/bases. Provides extra protection against aggressive chemicals that degrade conventional lubricants.
Ionizing Radiation Resistance, more stable than most hydrocarbon and synthetic materials.
Compatible with plastics, elastomers, metals and ceramics.
Extends Service Life of critical components. Reduces down time and maintenance costs.
Low Vapor Pressure
No Migration, contains no silicones.

GENERAL PRODUCT OVERVIEW:
Krytox® GPL Oils and Greases General Purpose Lubricants.
Temperature range from -70°F to 650°F. For extreme pressure, anti-corrosion, anti-rust and anti-wear. Excellent oxidative and thermal stability. Radiation resistant. Low outgassing. Oils are clear and colorless. Greases are white and thickened with PTFE.
Krytox® Aerosopace Oils and Greases Same properties as Krytox® GPL. Some aerospace are further tested to meet military specifications.
Krytox® XHT Oils and Greases Extra high temperature to 800°F.
Krytox® FG Oils and Greases with Food Grade H-1 rating (standard Krytox grades have an H-2 rating).
Krytox® XP Oils and Greases with patented soluble additives for anti-rust, anti-wear and extreme pressure.
Krytox® Linear Fluids Oils and Greases with high viscosity index-minimum viscosity change over wide temperature range.
