Electrical Connector Lubricant and Sealant – Krytox™ TS4

Lubricant & Sealant for Electrical Connectors Krytox™ TS4 sealant and electrical connector lubricant are designed as an ultra-low oil separation sealant and lubricant specifically for static applications. Krytox™ TS4 can be used for high temperature, non-reactive, non-flammable, and non-oxidative sealant applications, such as vacuum and pressure systems, electrical connections, transformer gaskets, equipment enclosures, and pipe […]

How Krytox Meets the Mil-Spec Standards for Lubrication

Military Specification Lubrication | Mil-Spec Lubrication A United States defense standard, often called a military standard, “MIL-STD“, “MIL-SPEC“, or (informally) “MilSpecs“, is used to help achieve standardization objectives by the U.S. Department of Defense. Standardization is beneficial in achieving interoperability, ensuring products meet certain requirements, commonality, reliability, the total cost of ownership, compatibility with logistics systems, and similar defense-related objectives. Specialized MIL-Specs (MIL-PRF-27617) were […]

Radiation Stability of Krytox™ and Fluoroguard™ Polymer Additives

Radiation Stability of Krytox™ and Fluoroguard™ Polymer Additives The results of some radiation stability exposure data obtained on our Krytox™ 143AB fluorinated oil and Krytox™ 240AB fluorinated grease that contains this oil are summarized in Tables 1–4. It is believed that these data are generally representative of the performance of all Krytox™ oils and greases. […]

It’s a solution that benefits you and your […]

Industrial Lubricants That Can Reduce Production Downtime

Comparing Industrial Lubricants – Downsides of Hydrocarbons Petroleum-Based and Synthetic Hydrocarbon Lubricants vs. Krytox (PFPEs) While industrial lubricants only make up 1% of plant operational costs, the lack of proper lubrication or application can have an adverse impact on total maintenance costs and downtime. More than half of the total maintenance costs, as well as […]

How Krytox™ Drive Savings & Productivity

When it Comes to Lubricants, the Lowest Price isn’t Always the Best Value Machine failures occur for a variety of reasons. Each one of these failures creates a ripple effect of costs and productivity loss. Some of these issues can be mitigated by choosing a high-performance lubricant – one that can withstand time and harsh […]

Krytox™ – Electrical Conducting Grease

Krytox™ perfluoropolyether (PFPE) oils with no additives are good insulators. The typical dielectric properties are shown in the table. There is no difference in the electrical properties of different grades of oils, as their chemical properties are identical, and the primary difference is viscosity. The properties vary slightly, with increasing viscosity typically having higher values. […]
