Product Description

The GPL 226 grease contains an anti-corrosion/anti-wear inhibitor and is ideal for corrosive environments where there is no danger of the sodium nitrite additive reacting with chemicals or causing contamination problems. Typical applications are automotive bearings, sealed pump bearings, electric motor bearings, and general purpose bearings. Krytox® oils and greases are silicone free. They do not contain any VOC materials or chlorine and are not hazardous to the atmosphere or ozone layer. They are biologically and environmentally inert. The fully fluorinated Krytox® high-temperature stability provides bottom-line savings from improved reliability and a reduction in grease usage and manpower through extended relubrication intervals. Excellent film strength reduces wear to reduce maintenance costs. Under high loads the viscosity increases to provide support and absorb the pressure.

Preparing the Application for Krytox® New components often have organic rust preventive oils or greases on them to prevent damage while they are in storage before use. New bearings should be inspected for damage and cleanliness before use. The components must be completely cleaned of greases or preservative oils when using Krytox® as a lubricant. Failure to do so could result in reduced bearing life. Bearing life tests on un-cleaned bearings have shown reduced life in high temperature, high speed tests where the bearing was filled with a minimum amount of grease. The preservatives coat the metal surface to prevent rusting so they can also prevent the grease from adhering, causing them to be thrown off by the action of the bearing. They could also oxidize and harden and can create debris which will contaminate the grease.

DuPont™ Krytox® oils and greases are based on perfluoropolyether (PFPE) oils. This series of synthetic fluorinated lubricants are used in extreme conditions such as continuous high temperatures up to 260°C (500°F) and will survive short term peak temperatures of up to 270°C (518°F). Chemically inert and safe for use around most chemicals, these lubricants are nonflammable and are also safe for use in oxygen service. Krytox® oils and greases do not damage plastics or elastomers nor cause corrosion to metals. They are commonly used as lubricants in aerospace, automotive, industrial and semiconductor applications as well as in solving many other routine lubrication problems. In addition, they provide exceptionally long lifetimes in sealed-for-life bearings and extend relubrication intervals in bearings that require relubrication.
