These greases are utilized for rust protection at ambient temperatures and corrosion protection at high temperatures. Properties like resistance to under-hood contaminants, high temperature stability, and durability make it ideal to lubricate and protect moving parts susceptible to oxidation.
GPL 225: Typical applications are automotive bearings subject to oxidation, fan clutch, alternator rear bearings, turbo and superchargers.GPL-220 Series TDS Quote
Krytox™ GPL 295 offers extreme pressure, anti-wear, and anti-corrosion additives. Delivers exceptional performance in areas that are exposed to both high pressure and oxidizers. Provides an effective fretting corrosion resistance, along with high temperature stability to ensure very long life in these otherwise vulnerable applications. Ideal for lubrication of clutch pilot bearings.GPL 295 TDS Quote
Krytox™ GPL 255 utilizes low levels of fluorescing agents to allow the grease’s appearance to change under an ultraviolet lamp or “black light”. The naturally white grease appears a yellowish-green color once it is exposed to UV light. This allows the grease to be hidden on a white surface under normal circumstances, but easily visible during manufacturing processes. GPL 255 can also allow confirmation that the grease did not migrate. GPL 255 grease is also available in the oil form as the GPL 155.GPL 255 TDS Quote
Krytox™ XP series is formulated using patented soluble additives that will not wash away or be left behind with the grease thickener. Provides anti-corrosion, anti-fretting, and high temperature stability properties, as well as resistance to separation under centrifugal loads and to diesel exhaust fumes. Perfect choice for bearings in truck automatic clutches to decrease noise and extend the life of the part. Other proven applications include lubricating actuator gears in EGR valves and bearings.XP Series Quote
