Krytox™ Lubricants for Foldable Electronics

Krytox™ lubricants from the Chemours Company provide exceptional performance solutions for foldable electronic applications, such as laptops, headphones, and gaming systems.

High-Performance Lubricants for Hinges in Advanced Electronics

The advanced market for consumer electronics continues to grow and adapt to specific customer needs, and many designers are discovering the value of Krytox™ high-performance synthetic lubricants. Next-generation hinge technology enables device designers to create a better ergonomic device with greater portability while maintaining the functionality of larger screens. Consequently, there is growing adoption of hinged devices in the market that require increasingly reliable performance.

Advantages of Krytox™ Lubricants in Electronics 

Today's electronic devices are continually exposed to extreme conditions, such as humid or wet environments. Krytox™ grease demonstrates minimal water spray washout and brings moisture resistance. Krytox™ grease provides torque stability, corrosion protection, and superior water-content compatibility for materials commonly used in hinged electronics. These features allow manufacturers to meet and exceed the high-performance requirements of this growing market.

Other advantages that Krytox™ lubricating grease provides include compatibility with elastomers, plastics, and rubbers commonly used in consumer electronics. These oils and greases also have an indefinite shelf life and anti-stainingantistaining, chemically inert, and non-nonreactive properties, making them ideal lubricant-insulator greases for typical applications.

Torque Stability during Flexible Joint Life

The smooth operation of hinges is one of the most important factors when it comes to the usage and durability of a consumer electronic device. Constant opening and shutting of devices is expected, and consumers expect require seamless, consistent operation and performance when using their devices. Hinges lubricated with Krytox™ PFPE grease demonstrate outstanding torque performance even after significant operational time. Lubricating with Krytox™ fluids ensures lifelong performance of folding devices through enhanced anti-wear protection.

Corrosion Protection with Krytox™ 

Exposure to the elements can cause decomposition and corrosion on metal surfaces. Rust can hinder lubrication performance on hinges, which is detrimental to the user experience. Most petroleum-based products are severely limited by oxidation stability and oil volatility. However, anti-anticorrosion greases, like those in the Krytox™ GPL Series, provide superior protection, allowing for extended use in different types of environments, including variable weather conditions, such as like low- to high-temperature extremes and water spray. In addition, these extreme-performance greases and oils are resistant to oxidation and product discoloration, leading to minimal impact on device-surface aesthetics

Krytox™ Grease Antistaining and Construction Compatibility

Krytox™ fluorinated oils and greases are completely inert and do not react with elastomers or plastics commonly used in fabricating consumer electronics. In addition, these oils and greases will not cause swelling, shrinkage, or cracking in plastics and elastomers, like other synthetic lubricants tend to do. Krytox™ lubricants will not harm or negatively impact the performance of materials, making them highly stable and versatile lubrication materials.
