Krytox AUT 2045 | Automotive Lubricant
Krytox AUT 2045 performance lubricants offer a wide range of high quality, high-performance lubricants to address the most challenging and complex requirements of original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and world-class Tier One supplier. Our family of oils, greases, and coatings will provide long-term operational excellence and high-performance lubrication in extreme operating conditions.
Automotive design engineers have learned that specifying Krytox AUT 2045 during the design phase can provide OEMs with significant cost savings. By lengthening the life of critical components and improving consumer satisfaction, Krytox™ lubricants help reduce repair costs and potentially save millions in warranty claims.
Automakers are striving for extended warranties, expecting longer intervals between vehicle service visits and very limited relubrication operations. Krytox lubricants have provided state-of-the-art performance for mechanical systems, such as gearboxes, bearings, chains, seals, actuators, valves, and other components. Krytox lubricants don’t oxidize; they provide excellent lubricity and a high viscosity index through a broad range of viscosity grades. Most applications where Krytox lubricants are specified are considered by OEMs to be lubricated for the expected lifetime of the vehicle.
Protection of the environment and people is a core value of Chemours. Our sustainability goals go beyond traditional footprint reduction to include goals that tie our business growth to the development of safer and environmentally improved new products and sustainable solutions.
Krytox AUT 2045 provides longer lasting lubrication, which lowers the frequency of relubrication; therefore, reducing the use of materials and reducing waste—important steps in helping to reduce product impact on the environment.
Krytox AUT 2045 grease typically lasts 5-50 times longer than standard greases. One common bearing test that demonstrates the extreme performance of various grades of Krytox grease is the ASTM D-3336 test method, where heating/cooling test cycles are continued until failure or the completion of a specified number of hours of running time.
Test results have shown that Krytox™ greases can continue to perform beyond thousands of hours and at temperatures beyond the range specified for most applications—even outlasting the tester itself.
