Krytox™ Grease for EV Charging

Krytox™ for EV Charging

Electric vehicles (EVs) are becoming increasingly popular as the world shifts toward greener, more sustainable transportation solutions. As EVs become more prevalent, so does the need for reliable and efficient charging infrastructure and lubrication.

Challenges for EVs and EV Charging Infrastructure

Battery electric vehicles (BEV), plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEV), and charger infrastructure present unique challenges when it comes to lubrication. These systems operate in harsh environments, including exposure to moisture, heat, and chemicals. Additionally, there are high demands for heightened efficiency and reliability, as any downtime can have significant consequences for EV owners and charging station operators alike.

Krytox™ Lubricants for EV Charging

One important aspect of EV technology that is often overlooked is the need for high-performance lubricants to keep the electrical contacts in top condition. Any electrical contact has a potential for arcing, which can cause heat and damage to the contact surfaces. Lubricants play a critical role in preventing this arcing and minimizing the wear and tear on the contacts. Without proper lubrication, the contacts can corrode, leading to reduced efficiency and potentially even system failure.

Krytox™ Grease is formulated from a fully synthetic PFPE (perfluoropolyether), which provides superior longevity compared to traditional lubricant solutions. These premium grease solutions protect key electrical contacts in charging stations and within the electric vehicle itself. 

Using Krytox™ Grease for EV charging will help with the following: 
  • Reduce corrosion, oxidation and fretting wear
  • Prevent electrical arcing
  • Longevity through water washout resistance
  • Protection at temperatures as low as −76°C (−76°F)
