Krytox™ GPL217 Grease is a black colored grease that is essentially Krytox™ GPL207 Grease with a molybdenum disulfide additive for applications requiring extreme pressure resistance for highly loaded gears and bearings.
Krytox™ GPL217 Grease is a high performance grease utilizing PFPE oil, PTFE thickener, and molybdenum disulfide as an extreme pressure additive. Commonly used in the automotive and industrial market, applications for these greases include, but are not limited to, highly loaded bearings and gears. Krytox™ GPL217 has a base oil viscosity of 450 cSt @ 40 degrees C. This grease is suitable to use in applications up to 550 degrees F.

Krytox™ greases are nontoxic lubricants that maintain their lubricity and viscosity properties to reduce maintenance costs associated with re-lubrication, component failure, and downtime in demanding applications. They are created by thickening synthetic perfluoropolyether-based oil (PFPE) with polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) powder. The PTFE thickener forms a barrier that holds the base oil at friction contact points for long-term lubrication, without requiring complicated oil recirculation systems. Anit-corrosion, High Temperature and High Pressure additives are also provided for specialized applications.
