Application

Krytox® oils are perfluoropolyethers that are thickened to form a grease with PTFE – polytetrafluoroether, which is sold by the manufacturer DuPont under the brand name Teflon®. Krytox® was developed in the 1960s by DuPont together with the U.S. Airforce and later used to great success by NASA in the Apollo space missions. Krytox® was the first synthetic lubricant formulated with PTFE.
Krytox® has become a general-purpose product with a wide range of uses thanks to its extraordinary product characteristics and its ability to accept various additives. Krytox® lubricants can be divided into three basic groups. Along with the general-purpose lubricants or GPLs, special grades have been developed for use in aerospace and vacuum applications, which have particular requirements.
Besides that, the XHT grades specially formulated for use in high-temperature applications are available.

The lubricating oils and greases in the Krytox® product range are extremely stable and reliable high-performance lubricants, capable of working in a temperature range from -70° C to 400° C. The high-quality PFPE oils and the PTFE-thickened greases have a very low coefficient of friction and are extremely long-lasting. They resist severe mechanical stresses and are not soluble in most solvents. Krytox® are non-flammable and non-ignitable. The multi-fluorinated lubricants in the Krytox® range are chemically inert and oxygen-resistant. They are also compatible with most common elastomers and plastics. Krytox® is environmentally neutral and can be regenerated after use.
