High Temperature Bearing Grease

Corrugators contain multiple rolls that are exposed to extremely high temperatures and run at exceptional speeds, producing 500-1000 FPM.  The bearings used for preheating, corrugating and pressure rolls need a lubricant that can withstand the high temperatures & running speeds.  Chemours has the industry leading solution in the corrugator grades of Krytox™ CORR 226FG and 227FG.

By using the Krytox™ Peformance Grease you can: 

  • Extend Bearing Life Between Maintenance Cycles 
  • Run at Higher Temperatures & Faster Speeds
  • Use Less Grease & Reduce Waste Disposal
