Krytox TM7 Grease | Grease for Tire Mold Applications
Specifically formulated grease for the Automotive Industry
Krytox TM7 grease is specifically designed for the lubrication of segmented molds, both electrically and steam-heated, in the vulcanization process of rubber tire manufacturing. This lubricant eliminates carbon residue buildup on the molds associated with hydrocarbon and hydrocarbon-based synthetic greases. Krytox™ TM7 exhibits excellent adhesion, allowing the operator to significantly increase production by extending lubrication intervals. Krytox™ TM7 will last in excess of 5,000 cycles, based on average curing times, without re-lubrication. Krytox TM7 grease is a fluorinated grease with polytetrafluorethylene (PTFE) thickener and selected additives. It has excellent thermal stability and load-carrying abilities. Krytox TM7 has a high degree of chemical inertness and extremely high hydrolytic stability. Contact with boiling water or steam has no effect.
Why Krytox TM7 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 performance 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.
