Krytox™ Functional Fluid Solutions for Your Application.
Krytox™ functional fluids are characterized by a mono-functional hexfluoropropylenepolyether backbone coupled with a functional end-group. Combining a traditional material with one of the functional fluids offered by Chemours allows you to lower the surface energy or glass transition temperature, or provide a lubricating layer for your material. Our scientists can help guide you and offer advice on how to incorporate the functional fluid into your material.
Krytox™ functional fluids are fluorinated synthetic oils based on hexfluoropropylene oxide combined with a functional end-group. Today, the end-groups offered include: carboxylic acid (PFPE CA), methyl ester (PFPE ME), methylene alcohol (PFPE AL), primary iodide, and allyl ether (PFPE AE) and a benzene group. Chemours also offers a PFPE Silane (KS 1220). All products are TSCA* listed, while the others are available under the TSCA R&D exemption. Reactions of these groups can be accomplished by employing many of the traditional synthetic methodologies used with their perfluoroalkyl analogues. The perfluoropolymer portion of the fluids contains 21.6% carbon, 9.4% oxygen and 69.0% fluorine. Their functional advantages include:
PFPE Silane KS 1220 has a variety of other functional advantages including:
Whether you require intermediates or special-purpose additives, Krytox™ offers a long list of performance characteristics that can enhance your end product.
