Krytox XHT-SX Grease | High Temp Standard Grease
Low oil evaporation for extending life of parts
Krytox™ XHT-SX grease is a special high temperature greases with low oil evaporation that provide long bearing life and are compatible with most elastomers and plastics. These greases provide excellent lubrication over a broad temperature range, but are designed to work best at temperatures over 200 °C (400 °F). Krytox XHT-SX grease is nonflammable, oxygen compatible, chemically inert, and provide extended lubrication intervals and longer equipment life.
Krytox XHT-SX grease is an extension of the Krytox GPL 240 series and Krytox GPL 20X series, but are designed to give higher performance in the 204–302 °C (400–575 °F) range. Krytox™ XHT-S series greases should be used below 320 °C (608 °F), where the polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) thickener could begin to melt. The base oil is an extremely viscous oil that provides good viscosity and lower evaporation at high temperatures. Krytox XHT-SX grease contains no additives, so they are used when a potential for interaction between process chemicals and grease additives exists. Krytox grease is made to a standard NLGI grade 2. PTFE is the standard thickener. For additional Krytox lubrication series info, please see Krytox GPL 22X series or Krytox GPL 20X series.
Krytox XHT-SX compatibility with metals
Due to their low surface tensions, Krytox oils easily wet metallic surfaces; and, because of their inertness, Krytox oils have little or no adverse effect on metals. Testing of metals at 340 °C (644 °F) in the absence of air has shown little evidence of corrosion. In the presence of air, corrosion was slightly higher. The presence of molybdenum in the metals improved corrosion resistance. Because of its thermal stability and non-oxidizing characteristics, Krytox is a natural high-temperature lubricant. Krytox XHT greases are available with useful temperature ranges up to 360 °C (680 °F) for continuous use, with spikes to 400 °C (752 °F), when used in proper metallurgy with periodic re-lubrication.
