Krytox™ H-1 Food Grade Lubricants

H-1 certfied Krytox™ oils and greases deliver superior performance with advanced features of high-temperature stability, nonflammability, and chemical and biological inertness. These lubricants will not carbonize or form gummy deposits that typically cause failures, nor will they evaporate. Therefore, maintenance costs can be significantly reduced.

The composition of Krytox™ lubricants allows them to function in a wide range of operating temperatures and chemical environments. These lubricants will not break down under mechanical stress. The oils are clear, colorless, and odorless, and the grease is white.

These lubricants comply fully with USDA performance standards for designated uses. These lubricant products are not intended to be used as direct food additives. Use Krytox™ oils and greases whenever a long lasting, tenacious, chemically inert lubricant is needed for your demanding applications.


Krytox™ oils contain only carbon, oxygen, and fluorine. The oils will not burn or support combustion, even in 100% liquid or gaseous oxygen. They are chemically inert and will not break down in the presence of most chemicals.

Because These lubricants are essentially inert, they are safe to use with most metals, plastics, and seal materials, and they are completely resistant to water and steam.

Krytox™ lubricants protect bearings and other components under a wide range of load and speed conditions. Components run quieter, and wear protection is extended. They will not break down under extreme pressure or high mechanical stress.

Various grades of these lubricants are serviceable for long periods of time at continuous temperatures between –58 and 600°F (–60 and 300°C). There are also special grades that can routinely handle temperatures of 662°F (350°C) and withstand peaks up to 752°F (400°C) for shorter periods of time.

Use Krytox™ lubricants on chains, bearings, valves, seals, or any place a long lasting lubricant is needed.


The extended life you will see with Krytox™ lubricants means longer re-lubrication intervals, less maintenance, and improved cleanliness. The overall superior stability of Krytox™ lubricants also can result in less downtime and fewer failures due to lubricant carbonization, evaporation, or other deterioration. Water washout and steam cleaning will not affect these lubricants. In addition, because they can be used in many applications and last so long, your total lubricant inventory can be reduced, as well as the need for frequent movement of drums around your facility. The combination of all of these factors translates to long-term cost savings for your business.
