DuPont™ Krytox® fluorinated, low-friction lubricants first earned their reputation for reliable performance in critical aerospace projects, such as the traction motors in NASA's Lunar Rover. Today, Krytox® lubricants have become invaluable resources to the electronics industry.
These non-toxic, long-lasting, multipurpose lubricating oils and greases are available in a wide variety of formulations to improve the performance of equipment in your production line. Whether you need safe, effective vacuum pump fluids or superior lubricity for bearings, valves, seals, O-rings, chains, compressors, gearboxes, mechanical pumps or other components, Krytox® oils and greases fight friction, seal barriers and can help lengthen the use-life of your equipment, even in extreme high or low temperatures. That means you'll have less downtime and possibly less need for replacement parts less often than when using conventional hydrocarbon lubricants.
DuPont™ Krytox® vacuum pump fluids are used in applications where conventional vacuum pump oils cause safety, waste disposal and maintenance problems. They are highly stable, non-flammable, help reduce the chance of fire in pumps, and do not contain acetal groups, which are susceptible to attack by Lewis acids. Krytox® vacuum pump fluids are also non-reactive with chemicals and safe to use in oxygen systems—so they can replace competitive (PFPE) fluids or any other type of vacuum fluid. Applications include semiconductors, wet and dry pumps, vacuum system sealants, cleanrooms, robotics and others.
The many benefits of DuPont™ Krytox® Performance Lubricants include:
Krytox® fluids can be regenerated, have a minimal environmental footprint and are compatible with chemicals commonly used in industry
