Why Use Krytox™ Lubricants for Textile Manufacturing? 

Textile manufacturing equipment includes complex movements, high temperatures and exposure to harsh chemicals and dyes.  In order to maximize production & protect these intricate systems the right lubricant solution needs to be used – this is where Krytox™ Performance Lubricants enter the equation.  Krytox™ Lubricants are formulated from a high-quality synthetic base oil that greatly outperforms mineral oils and exhibits greater thermal stability & chemical resistivity overall. 

High Thermal Stability

Krytox™ Performance Lubricants withstand extreme temperature environments where conventional lubricants breakdown, combust and fail.  Krytox™ Lubricants exhibit minimal oil evaporation rates resulting in significantly longer operating life and extended maintenance cycles.

Corrosion Protection

Krytox™ Performance Lubricants form a long-term protective layer on critical mechanical components and helps prevent damage from chemical attack.  Krytox™ Lubricants are formulating using a completely inert PFPE (Perfluoropolyether) chemistry that significantly outlasts traditional mineral oil-based lubricant solutions.  Krytox™ does an excellent job at protecting equipment from harsh chemicals in the textile industry and can greatly extend operational life for expensive and complex equipment.  

Textile Equipment & Applications

Krytox™ Lubricants are an ideal lubricant solution for a wide variety of equipment types and lubricant requirements, including but not limited to:
Godet Roller Bearings Stenter Frame Chains Stenter Frame Bearings
Rotary Joint Bearings Singeing Processes Steam Heater Bearings
Steam Headers Mercerizing Processes Acidic/Caustic Environments
Decating & Saniforizing Processes Chemical Finishing Much More
