The Krytox® Performance Lubricants Value Story
Again and again, Krytox® lubricants prove their worth.
Krytox® oils and greases offer superior value for your lubricant dollar when compared to hydrocarbon-based oils and greases. Krytox® lubricants are incredibly versatile — our oils and greases are available in a variety of formulations to meet the lubrication requirements of many different industries and applications. Your investment in Krytox® lubricants pays big dividends. Check out our case studies, white papers and technical data that make a strong case for Krytox®.
Krytox® lubricants outperform common lubricants.
Krytox® base oil is composed of fluorine, carbon and oxygen (known as PFPE or perfluoropolyether), and formulated in many variants by adding thickeners, solvents, and additives that effectively protect moving parts from corrosion, wear, and extreme loads.
Krytox® performance lubricants last longer.
In sealed-for-life applications, Krytox® lubricants offer virtual lifetime lubrication.
Your machines last longer.
Krytox® lubricants greatly reduce wear in your machine’s moving parts — so they enjoy a remarkably extended life and you have less downtime. Parts won’t wear out and re-lubrication intervals may be lengthened.
You use less lubricant with Krytox®.
The savings really add up when you use less lubricant, less often. Of course, no lubricant lasts forever, but Krytox® comes much closer than any hydrocarbon-based oils or greases. Additionally, less frequent maintenance also means less downtime.
Krytox® lubricants don’t carbonize or deteriorate at high temperatures.
Krytox® lubricants are not only fire-resistant, but they are nonflammable. They will not ignite, explode or support combustion, even in 100% liquid or gaseous oxygen.
Krytox® lubricants have a long, long shelf life.Krytox® lubricants have a long, long shelf life.
Krytox® lubricants (without additives) have an indefinite shelf life when stored unopened in a clean, dry location. Krytox® oils and thickeners experience virtually no deterioration over time.
