Chemours Introduces Krytox™ FPG 182 Performance Lubricant for Clean Rooms, Robotics and Electronic Manufacturing
Wilmington, Del., November 17, 2016 – The Chemours Company (“Chemours”) (NYSE: CC), a global chemistry company with leading market positions in titanium technologies, fluoroproducts and chemical solutions, announced today the introduction of its new Krytox™ FPG 182 performance lubricant.
Krytox™ FPG 182 is a smooth, buttery, perfluoropolyether (PFPE)-based grease thickened with a special, high-performance polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE). Developed to operate over a wide temperature range (–80 °C to 210 °C ; –112 °F to 410 °F) and in extreme chemical and vacuum conditions, Krytox™ FPG 182 can be used for bearings, gears, and as a lubricant for O-rings and elastomers. It offers exceptional resistance to oxygen and chemicals and prevents corrosion.
Krytox™ FPG 182 provides improved wear resistance, reduced oil volatility and smaller solid thickener particle size versus competing products. In tests, it demonstrated seven times the bearing life compared to similar products (5,400+ hr. at 10,000 rpm and 399 °F).
“For decades, the Krytox™ family of lubricants has set the standard for high-performance industrial greases,” said Jennifer Bricker, Global Product Manager. “Krytox™ lubricants help extend machinery life without the many downsides of hydrocarbon-based oils and greases, including flammability and product deterioration. Krytox™ FPG 182 further builds on the high-temperature capabilities of the Krytox™ line.”
