FLUOROLUBE Oils - Corrosion Resistant & Long Lasting Lubricants For Metallic Surfaces
FLUOROLUBE® oils are liquid 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) that combine high-temperature performance, non-flammability and chemical inertness under many demanding conditions. Available in a range of viscosities, FLUOROLUBE® oils 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® Oils consist of about 80% combined fluorine and chlorine and are nonflammable.
CAUTION: Do not use on copper, aluminum or magnesium parts when heavy friction or galling are possible.
Detonation can occur when FLUOROLUBE® Oils are allowed to contact these reactive metals free of their oxide coating in confined spaces and under heavy loads or high pressure.
FLUOROLUBE® Oils may react violently with sodium and potassium metals, amines, hydrazine, liquid fluorine and liquid chlorine trifluoride.
