FCAD PFPE Lubricants

If heat, chemicals, solvents, corrosion, toxicity, flammability, compatibility, service life are some of your lubrication problems, we have the solution: FCAD PFPE lubricants.

What Makes FCAD Lubricants Better?

The following properties and characteristics of FCADPFPE lubricants are sure to include some that are important to your application:

  • Unmatched chemical and solvent resistance
  • Excellent thermal resistance
  • Excellent electrical resistance
  • Non-reactive with metal, plastic, elastomers and rubber
  • Inert to liquid and gaseous oxygen
  • Excellent radiation hardness•Good viscosity index
  • Nonflammable
  • Extremely wide operating temperature range
  • Low evaporation loss
  • Excellent water washout properties
  • Good low and high temperature wear properties
  • Easily formulated into greases
  • Environmentally safe
  • Non-toxic behavior

In addition, certain grades of FCAD PFPE lubricants also offer special features such as:ffer special features such as:

  • Extremely high viscosity index (< 300)
  • Excellent low temperature starting torque
  • Improved evaporation characteristics

The availability of additivated FCAD PFPE fluids widens the range of applications for perfluorinated fluids and greases in fields demanding high anti-rust properties. These applications include lubrication of bearings, gears, turbine and liquid compressors that may be in contact with condensed water vapor. These additives also provide an opportunity to use FCAD PFPE as a hydraulic fluid, filling fluid and solvents where antirust prevention is one of the primary product specifications.

Applications Where FCAD Lubricants Are Top Performers

While FCAD PFPE lubricants can be used in their original form, they are often formulated into greases for specific applications in the chemical, electronic, military, nuclear, data processing and other industries in need of high performance lubrication. A few of the critical uses of FCAD PFPE lubricants include:

  • Tenter frames in the textile industry
  • Deep space rocket nozzle lubrication
