Collaborate with OEMs for the Right Lubricant Choice

Reduce Maintenance Costs and Lost Production Time

Although industrial lubricants comprise a tiny percentage of plant operational costs, maintenance, repair, and operations (MRO) organizations rely on frequent re-lubrication to prevent equipment downtime, production stoppage, and shorter machine lifespans. Traditional petroleum-based hydrocarbon lubricants break down and fail when exposed to extreme temperatures, pressures, and chemicals.

Using non-traditional synthetic perfluoropolyether (PFPE) lubricants reduces equipment failure, maintenance and labor costs, and parts replacement. 

Comparison of  temperature limits 

It makes good financial sense to collaborate with original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to select the right lubrication. Many OEMs recommend Krytox™ high-performance lubricants for properties that include:

  • High stability across diverse operating conditions and environments
  • Dependable performance over a wide temperature range
  • Compatibility with painted surfaces, plastics, and elastomers

PFPE lubricants can contribute significantly to lowering the cost of doing business in many industries including the aerospace, automotive, and chemical sectors.
