DuPont™ Krytox® Performance Lubricants for the Textile Industry.

The textile business is a capital-intensive industry driven by sophisticated machines that require constant maintenance to perform at their most efficient level. In this environment, even a small reduction in ongoing maintenance can translate into significant savings over time. That’s why textile plant maintenance and lubrication professionals choose DuPont™ Krytox® synthetic oils and greases.

Krytox® lubricants provide superior performance while remarkably extending the use-life of textile machinery. Designed to far surpass conventional lubricants, Krytox® oils and greases can withstand temperature extremes from -57 °C to 399 °C (-70 °F to 750 °F), while retaining their lubricity, viscosity and chemical integrity. Those same extreme temperatures would see conventional lubricants carbonize and destroy the bearings or gears they should protect.

Tribologists, lubrication professionals and maintenance engineers use Krytox® oils and greases to enhance the function of tenter-frame cross-screw boxes, steamer and dryer bearings, dye machine lifter-reel bearings, tenter-frame chains and gearboxes, high-speed motors, as well as fabric and film stretching guide rails and clips. The long list of benefits DuPont™ Krytox® Performance Lubricants offer textile finishing applications include:
