Extreme Conditions. Extreme Performance. Krytox™ for Non-bearing Automotive Applications.
Krytox™ oils and greases stand up to harsh environments and high temperatures for automotive parts. In automotive applications, Krytox™ oils and greases deliver low-temperature starting performance, while maintaining efficacy at higher temperatures. These PFPE-based oils and greases can increase the service life of critical components, allowing them to run more quietly and last longer, for superior and reliable performance.
For automotive manufacturers, this provides the opportunity to offer extended warranties and enjoy improved productivity by reducing component failure. Krytox™ High-Performance Lubricants are extensively used in extreme conditions such as continuous high temperatures up to 550°F, and higher temperatures for shorter periods, depending on product grade limits and they are completely non-flammable.
Krytox™ oil and greases come in a wide variety of viscosity options within Krytox™ GPL and Krytox™ AUT lubricants and are tailored for precise lubrication and control where high or low viscosity is desired.
Krytox™ High-performance Lubricants are easy to apply, safe to use, and engineered for long term success.
Krtyox™ Non-bearing Automotive Applications
Battery Vent Seals
Krytox™ lubricants have a very low coefficient of friction, leading to excellent control and smoother gliding of the vents.
Spark Plug Boots
Because Krytox™ lubricants can prevent the fusion of the boot's silicone rubber to the plug's silicon ceramic, they are ideal in this application as they are stable non-reactive, and long-lasting.
Cooling System Thermostat
Krytox™ lubricants properly lubricate the actuator rod that opens and closes the temperature-dependent valve, ensuring long-term optimal engine performance and gas mileage.
O-Ring Lubrication/Assembly Lube
Krytox™ lubricants are the preferred choice for O-ring lubrication because they are compatible with all seal materials. Furthermore, Krytox™ lubricants do not contribute to seal degradation because they do not oxidize and have greater temperature stability than seals.
Krytox™ lubricants are an ideal choice for the exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) valve since they withstand the high temperatures and exhaust fumes experienced by the EGR valve.
Engine/Turbo Cooling System
Slip fittings and lubing assemblies are difficult to assemble and remove for maintenance or replacement. Krytox™ lubricants are compatible with most metal, plastic, and rubber interfaces, and they can reduce the friction in the assemblies, ultimately decreasing the time and effort needed to assemble parts.
Windshield Wiper Motor
Krytox™ lubricants have a very low coefficient of friction on start-up, so a small amount can lead to a significant reduction in friction. This translates into less work for the windshield wiper motor, giving it a much longer life without requiring re-lubrication.
Super Charger Lubricant
The thermal and oxidative stability properties of Krytox™ lubricants, and their unique frictional characteristics make them ideal for applying to a spring-loaded engineered plastic bushing, delivering very long life and incredibly smooth, stick slip-free performance.
Exterior Side-View Mirror Mechanism
The application of Krytox™ grease to the exterior side-view mirror mechanism provides long-lasting lubrication, eliminating the need for regular maintenance, and ensuring continuous, reliable operation of the mirror for the life of the vehicle.
Electronic Parking Brake Mechanism
With the electronic parking brake mechanism, Krytox™ can carry the gear load, won't evaporate or oxidize, and is compatible with all plastics. As a result of these excellent lubricant properties, it is expected to work for the lifetime of the car and can reduce safety issues and warranty claims.
Minivan Side-Door Motor Clutch
Krytox™ Performance Lubricants excel in unique and very challenging applications where traditional lubricants simply can't meet performance demands and extended warranty requirements.
The Krytox™ Performance Lubricants work very well in a wide variety of automotive applications, including many different bearing and component types. They also reduce overall noise, vibration, and harshness (NVH).
