Specialty Fluids for Removing Lubricants
DuPont™ Vertrel® XF Specialty Fluid for PFPE* Oils and Greases
DuPont™ Krytox® fluorinated oils and greases are resistant to most common organic solvents. Because of this resistance, cleanup of Krytox® lubricants and other PFPE oils and greases requires special solvents that are ineffective on hydrocarbon-based lubricants and preservatives.
To increase cleaning efficiency brushing or wiping with rags will significantly accelerate the cleaning process, and when possible, immersion in an ultrasonic cleaner will aid in the cleaning of bearings and other parts with hard-to-reach recessed areas.
DuPont™ Vertrel® MCA Plus Specialty Fluid
DuPont™ Vertrel® MCA Plus specialty fluid is an unique cleaner developed for applications where removing both PFPE and hydrocarbon lubricants simultaneously is desired. It is a carefully balanced mixture of co-solvents that should be effective in cleaning most lubricants and preservatives from parts and housings.
As in all cleaning operations, brushing or wiping with rags will significantly accelerate the cleaning process. Wiping parts as clean as possible prior to the application of Vertrel® MCA Plus specialty fluid will minimize the amount used.
