DuPont Krytox 240 AB Grease, 2 oz. tube
Krytox lubricants were initially developed by DuPont in the early 1960s specifically for the precise and demanding oxygen-safe lubrication needs of the aerospace industry. Krytox synthetic lubricants have since replaced hundreds of special-formula, hydrocarbon-based oils and greases throughout the aerospace and aviation industries, thanks to a long list of superior performance characteristics and certifications.
- Suborbital, orbital and deep space flight – require ironclad reliability and lifetime lubrication for critical components that must operate flawlessly in high vacuum and extreme temperatures, as well as endure exposure to fuels, oxidizers and radiation.
- Commercial, corporate and military aviation – demands safety, reliability and compliance with a wide range of precise military specifications, as well as reduced maintenance requirements.

Material Safety Data Sheet – MSDS
Applications for DuPont Krytox lubricants are generally of a critical nature with temperatures in all industries reaching extremes for conventional lubricants. They are expected to be durable in the most aggressive environments and are now often considered an integral part of the design. Where failure of components is not an option, whether because of durability, warranty, safety, loss of productivity or down time, Krytox is the lubricant of choice in a wide range of industries and applications.
In the aerospace industry, Krytox oils and greases are applied on various settings spanning from bearings and sealants to o-rings and oxygen systems. Krytox is a valuable asset to the aerospace industry due to its superior performance in a wide range of temperatures scaling from 70 to 399 ºC (–100 to 750 ºF). In addition, it is robust in harsh environments and has excellent frictional properties, allowing it to resist change in properties over time, provide longer wear, and lower energy consumption. Krytox lubricants are compatible with all metals, elastomers, plastics, paints and finishes. Due to the intense and severe circumstance of the aerospace industry, it can be expected that Krytox delivers a high level of product excellence.
Krytox grease and oil lubricants have an indefinite shelf life if unopened and stored in a clean dry location.
