Krytox GPL 246 Grease | Electrical Conductivity Grease
Specially formulated with Copper to ease conductivity
Some applications require electrical conductivity. Most greases act as insulators. Krytox GPL 246 has been formulated with copper powder in grease to act as a conductor of electricity. Krytox™ oils provide long life and high-temperature stability and lubrication. The addition of copper powder also improves the thermal conductivity of the grease for applications where improved heat transfer is needed; however, it can increase bearing noise and wear. The thermal conductivity of non-additized Krytox™ GPL 206 grease at 40 °C (104 °F) is 0.127 watts/m°K. The Krytox™ GPL 246 grease at 40 °C (104 °F) has a conductivity of 0.272 watts/m°K.
Krytox™ GPL 246 is formulated with our Krytox™ GPL 106 base oil, it retains many of the properties of that oil. Consult Krytox™ Performance Chemicals Product Overview brochure for more information. For additional Krytox electrical greases, see Krytox™ EG Series.
Why Krytox GPL 246 Grease?
Standard Krytox lubricants contain only carbon, oxygen, and fluorine; whereas, hydrocarbons contain hydrogen. The absence of hydrogen greatly increases the stability of the lubricants and renders them non-flammable with no flashpoint. They will not burn or support combustion, even in an environment of 100% liquid or gaseous oxygen. Krytox lubricants are not only resistant to oxygen but are also inert to virtually all chemicals used in a variety of industries. They are insoluble in most solvents but are soluble in highly fluorinated fluids and some supercritical fluids, such as CO2.
At elevated temperatures and pressures, PFPE oils are highly resistant to attack by gaseous and liquid oxygen. As a result, Krytox oils and greases have become preferred lubricants in the oxygen manufacturing industry and in those industries that use oxygen.
