Krytox™ GPL General Purpose Lubricants


Krytox™ GPL Oils and Greases

Krytox™ GPL General Purpose Lubricants are based on perfluoropolyether (PFPE) oils. This series of synthetic fluorinated lubricants are used in extreme conditions such as continuous high temperatures up to 500°F (260°C) and will survive short-term peak temperatures of up to 518°F (270°C). Chemically inert and safe for use around most chemicals, these lubricants are nonflammable and are also safe for use in oxygen service.

These oils and greases do not damage plastics or elastomers or cause corrosion to metals. They are commonly used as lubricants in automotive, industrial and semiconductor applications as well as in solving many other routine lubrication problems. In addition, they provide exceptionally long life times in sealed-for-life bearings and extend re-lubrication intervals in bearings that require re-lubrication.

GPL 100 –107 oils are clear, colorless, fluorinated synthetic oils that are non-reactive, nonflammable, safe in chemical and oxygen service, and are long lasting.

All standard grades of grease are thickened with polytetrafluroethylene (PTFE). This special high efficiency thickener has a melting point of 617°F (325°C) and has low molecular weight and sun-micron (0.2M) particle size for higher performance in bearings.

GPL 200-207 greases are white buttery greases with all of the same properties as the Krytox® GPL 100-107 oils that are made from, but they are in grease form.

Typical applications for GPL 10X Series and GPL 20X Series include:

  • Valves or bearings in contact with chemicals
  • Seal barrier fluids
  • Instruments
  • Oxygen systems

GPL 210-217 greases are black in color that contains molybdenum disulfide added as an extreme pressure additive for highly loaded gears and bearings.

Typical applications include:

  • Highly loaded gears
  • CV joints
  • U-joints
  • Splined shafts
  • Commercial electrical switches

GPL 220-227 anticorrosion greases are white greases that contain sodium nitrite. These grades provide rust protection at ambient temperatures, corrosion protection at high temperatures, anti-wear protection.

Typical applications include:

  • Automotive bearings
  • Sealed pump bearings
  • Electric motor bearings
  • General purpose bearings
