FLUOROLUBE Greases - - Corrosion Resistant & Long Lasting Lubricants For Metallic Surfaces
FLUOROLUBE® greases are paste-like lubricants that deliver long-lasting lubrication for metallic surfaces (except copper, aluminum, and magnesium) in applications requiring stability and performance in strongly acidic and/or oxidizing environments. They are saturated, hydrogen-free, low-molecular-weight polymers of chlorotrifluoroethylene (CTFE). Available in a range of viscosities for demanding conditions, FLUOROLUBE® greases are compatible with chlorine, oxygen, hydrogen peroxide, red fuming nitric acid and other strong oxidizing agents, and are nonflammable.

Thermal stability of the FLUOROLUBE® Lubricants is between 300° and 600°F (150° - 315 °C) depending on the duration of heating and the materials of construction. Exposure to high temperatures will cause these products to depolymerize to lower molecular weight volatile compounds.
Thermal stability is affected by the presence of metals. High temperature uses of approximately 300 °F (150 °C) should be evaluated before field application.
FLUOROLUBE® Greases consist of about 80% combined fluorine and chlorine and are nonflammable.
CAUTION: Do not use on copper, aluminum or magnesium parts. And especially when heavy friction or galling are possible for these metals.
Detonation can occur when FLUOROLUBE® Greases are allowed to contact these reactive metals free of their oxide coating in confined spaces and under heavy loads or high pressure.
FLUOROLUBE® Lubricants may react violently with sodium and potassium metals, amines, hydrazine, liquid fluorine and liquid chlorine trifluoride.
Due to their attack on the grease thickening agent, gaseous fluorine, hydrofluoric acid and caustic solutions are not recommended for use with FLUOROLUBE® Greases. But Fluorolube olis are just fine for use with these.
