DuPont Krytox XP Lubricants with Soluble Additives

Krytox XP lubricants are formulated using patented soluble additives. Typical perfluoropolyether (PFPE) greases use solid additives for anti-rust, anti-wear, or extreme pressure performance. These components are mixed into the grease and held in place by the grease thickener. There were no additives available for the oil, because of the inertness of the oil and insolubility of available additives.

The Krytox XP lubricant line offers greases and oils with a soluble additive in the oil. It won’t be washed away or left behind with the grease thickener. These new patented additives enhance the performance of Krytox PFPE greases and oils, giving them improved performance properties.

Bearings run quieter and wear less, because there are no solid additives to make noise. Lower wear will extend bearing and component life. The anticorrosion protection of the additive will reduce rusting and allow longer grease and bearing life. The extreme pressure properties of the additive protect bearings under high loads.

Compatibility with Elastomers and Plastics

Krytox is compatible with all elastomeric seal materials and engineering plastics. The limiting factor when using Krytox with any material is the thermal stability of the elastomer or plastic.

Krytox performance lubricants are compatible with the following common elastomers and plastics:

  • Fluorosilicone
  • Ethylacrylate
  • Methyl Silicone
  • Viton A Fluoroelastomer
  • Urethane
  • Hypalon Synthetic Rubber
  • Hytrel Polyester Elastomer
  • Butyl 325
  • Neoprene WRT
  • Nycar 100 (Buna N)
  • EPT, Peroxide Cure
  • Nordel Hydrocarbon Rubber
  • Delrin Acetal
  • Zytel Nylon
  • Vespel
  • PTFE Fluoropolymer
  • Kalrez Fluoroelastomer*

* 15 -20 vol% swelling at high temperatures when immersed.

Compatibility with Metals

Because of their low surface tensions, Krytox lubricants easily wet metallic surfaces. Krytox lubricants are chemically inert and therefore have no adverse effect on metals when the temperature is below 288°C (550°F). Above 288°C (550°F), many alloy steels, stainless steels, and other metals such as aluminum alloy, titanium alloy, nickel alloy, and cobalt alloy can be used with Krytox.

Demonstrated Results

Krytox technology provides state-of-the art performance for mechanical systems under harsh conditions. From gearboxes, bearings and chains – to seals, actuators, valves, and more – every day Krytox serves the specialized needs of:

  • Pulp and paper mills and converting plants
  • Automotive components
  • Military and commercial aircraft
  • Chemical plants
  • Power plants
  • Turbine generators
  • Oxygen, chlorine, and reactive gas equipment and components. DuPont lubricants have been independently tested by organizations such as BOC, Air Liquide, BAM, NASA, General Dynamics, and Praxair and proven acceptable for oxygen and other reactive chemical compatibility.
