DuPont™ Krytox® Performance Lubricants for O-rings.

The list of machines and mechanisms that rely on O-rings for proper functioning across a wide range of industries is indeed a long one. The ability to lengthen the use-life of O-rings is an ongoing challenge for the maintenance and operational professionals that maintain those machines — and DuPont™ Krytox® Performance Lubricants can help. Nontoxic, non-flammable Krytox® oils and greases can help improve the performance of a variety of O-rings.

Krytox® GPL20X greases, as well as 240 series greases (which are based on operating temperatures), can significantly extend the life of O-rings and reduce maintenance costs and downtime. They can also serve as excellent lubricants for more convenient assembly and reduce the chances of damaging the O-ring during assembly. Krytox® oil and grease benefits include:

  • Broad elastomeric compatibility
  • Undamaged by — and non-reactive with — acidic or caustic cleaners and disinfectants, steam, moisture and high temperatures
  • Minimal environmental footprint
  • Chemically and biologically inert and silicone-free
  • Contain no volatile organic compound (VOC) materials or chlorine
