Krytox™ Performance Lubricants for the Aerospace and Aviation Industries.
Krytox™ lubricants were initially developed by DuPont in the early 1960s specifically for the precise and demanding lubrication needs of the aerospace industry. Krytox™ synthetic lubricants have since replaced hundreds of special-formula, hydrocarbon-based oils and greases throughout the aerospace and aviation industries, thanks to a long list of superior performance characteristics and certifications.
Krytox™ aerospace greases are available in grades conforming to/applicable under:
Krytox™ perfluoropolyether- (PFPE-) based oils and greases provide a remarkable list of properties for aerospace applications, including:
In certain applications such as fan motors, Krytox™ grease can even provide Lubed-For-Life performance, eliminating the potential for failure due to lubrication over the lifetime of the part. This means there is a no longer a need for re-lubrication, which increases the time between servicing as well as decreasing downtime and overall costs. These applications include:
Additional aerospace lubricant applications include:
Krytox™ Aviation Application Overview
Krytox™ is the lubricant of choice for demanding conditions — high and low temperatures, extreme pressure, harsh environments.
Krytox™ lubricants are formulated in a wide range of oils and greases for the requirements of many different aviation applications.
Krytox™ aerospace lubricants were created by DuPont to withstand the rigors of orbital flights in the vacuum of space.
