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