KrytoxTM LPV High Vacuum Grease O-Ring Lubricant

From –15–300 °C (0–570 °F), at vapor pressures as low as 10-13 mmHg, and even in the most chemically severe environments, KrytoxTM LPV High Vacuum Grease offers performance that hydrocarbon, silicone, and chlorofluorocarbon greases simply can’t match.

KrytoxTM LPV High Vacuum Grease will no explode, ignite, decompose, react to form gummy or solid deposits, or act as fuel for fires. KrytoxTM o-ring lubricant is a proven performer in the most extreme applications.

Chemically Inert

Krytox™ LVP high-vacuum grease has demonstrated an exceptionally high degree of chemical inertness to many highly reactive chemicals. For example, Krytox™ LVP grease shows no evidence of reactivity when exposed to:

  • Boiling sulfuric acid
  • Fluorine gas at 200 °C (392 °F)
  • Chlorine trifluoride at 10–50 °C (50–122 °F)
  • Uranium hexafluoride gas at 50 °C (122 °F)
  • Molten sodium or potassium hydroxide at 318–360 °C (605–680 °F)
  • Hydrogen gas at 250 °C (482 °F) and 250 psi
  • Ammonia gas at 250 °C (482 °F) and 50 psi

Krytox™ LVP is not reactive with any of the following materials when tested at room temperature:

  • Ethyl alcohol
  • Hydrazine
  • Diethylenetriamine
  • 90% hydrogen peroxide
  • Nitrogen tetroxide
  • JP-4 turbine fuel
  • Unsymmetrical dimethyl hydrazine Aniline
  • Inhibited red fuming nitric acid
  • Halogen acids
  • Chlorine or bromine

Nonflammable

Krytox™ LVP grease is nonflammable under all conditions likely to be encountered in service. It shows no autogenous ignition, flash, or fire points up to the highest temperature tested, 649 °C (1200 °F), in standard AS™ tests.

Compatible with Oxygen

At elevated temperatures and pressures, Krytox™ LVP high-vacuum grease is highly resistant to attack by gaseous and liquid oxygen. As a result, it is the lubricant of choice in industries that manufacture or use oxygen.

Tests confirming the non-reactivity of Krytox™ lubricants with oxygen were performed at a variety of conditions.
