Keep Gearboxes Working Longer with Performance Greases
Gearboxes are widely used in automotive and industrial applications to adjust speed, increase torque, or change driveshaft direction. Any malfunction or failure within the gearbox disrupts the operations of the products being used and the processes they are performing.
Krytox™ high-performance lubricants are ideal for these applications because they retain their properties and keep working in the most demanding environments, often over the lifetime of the gearbox. Krytox™ greases greatly reduce or eliminate the need for maintenance and relubrication.
Additional benefits Krytox™ greases offer gearboxes include:
- Long-lasting lubricity and load-carrying ability
- Nonreactive with acidic or caustic cleaners/disinfectants, steam, and moisture
- Prevention of gears or bearings gumming up by virtue of not forming sludge or varnish
Why Choose Krytox™ High-Performance Lubricants
Krytox™ greases deliver remarkably consistent lubrication in extreme temperatures and will not oxidize, even in operating temperatures as high as 350 °C (662 °F). Free of the usual thermal degradation of conventional lubricants, Krytox™ greases will not form sludge or varnish, which reduces common causes of gearbox failures while also extending their life.
Krytox™ greases offer additional benefits that differentiate them from other gearbox lubricants. Special properties include:
- Superior corrosion resistance and no oxidation—even at extreme temperatures
- Chemically and biologically inert
- Minimal environmental footprint
- Contains no volatile organic compound (VOC) materials or chlorine
