DuPont Krytox oils and greases, available in Australia through Fluid Seals offer superior performance characteristics in various applications.
Extreme temperature performance
Offering extreme temperature stability, Krytox oils and greases are the product of choice in extreme temperature conditions.
While most petroleum products begin to degrade above 99ºC and are too viscous at temperatures just below -18ºC, Krytox synthetic lubricants display high stability in operating temperature ranges from -75ºC up to 350ºC and temperatures up to 400ºC with appropriate metallurgy.
Under the D-3336 test conditions of 177ºC and 10,000 rpm, a majority of competing hydrocarbon lubricants fail in less than 1,000 hr while the general purpose line of Krytox lubricants has been shown to last over 5,000 hr without failure, even at an increased temperature of 200ºC.
Krytox lubricants are cost-effective across a wide range of applications, providing a longer usable life over typical hydrocarbon oils and greases due to their inert nature.
The long usable life results in significant savings over time by lowering the amount of lubricant required and minimising any downtime incurred during re-lubrication.
Krytox greases containing anti-wear additives have properties that give high specific load-carrying capacity and high protection against wear.
Anti-corrosion additives are combined with Krytox grease to enhance its ability to protect metallic surfaces from corrosion caused by moisture and oxygen. DuPont also offers a patented oil-soluble additive to give the same corrosion protection to Krytox oils.
Compatibility with elastomers and plastics
Krytox base oil is compatible with all elastomeric seal materials and engineering plastics. The limiting factor when using standard Krytox with any material is the thermal stability of the elastomer or plastic.
