Chemours Introduces KrytoxT FPG 182 Performance Lubricant
Press release date: November 17, 2016
The Chemours Company ("Chemours") (NYSE: CC), a global chemistry company with leading market positions in titanium technologies, fluoroproducts and chemical solutions, announced today the introduction of its new KrytoxT FPG 182 performance lubricant.
KrytoxT FPG 182 is a smooth, buttery, perfluoropolyether (PFPE)-based grease thickened with a special, high-performance polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE). Developed to operate over a wide temperature range (-80°C to 210°C ; -112°F to 410°F) and in extreme chemical and vacuum conditions, KrytoxT FPG 182 can be used for bearings, gears, and as a lubricant for O-rings and elastomers. It offers exceptional resistance to oxygen and chemicals and prevents corrosion.
KrytoxT FPG 182 provides improved wear resistance, reduced oil volatility and smaller solid thickener particle size versus competing products. In tests, it demonstrated seven times the bearing life compared to similar products (5,400+ hr. at 10,000 rpm and 399 °F).
"For decades, the KrytoxT family of lubricants has set the standard for high-performance industrial greases," said Jennifer Bricker, Global Product Manager. "KrytoxT lubricants help extend machinery life without the many downsides of hydrocarbon-based oils and greases, including flammability and product deterioration. KrytoxT FPG 182 further builds on the high-temperature capabilities of the KrytoxT line."
