Fomblin® PFPE Lubricants

Unmatched Performance

Fomblin® PFPE are fluorinated lubricants representing the best choice when aggressive chemical environments, high temperatures or wide working-temperature ranges are involved.

They are engineered for those applications where heat, chemicals, solvents, corrosion, toxicity, flammability, and service life present lubrication problems.

Why Fomblin® PFPE?

  • Unmatched chemical and solvent resistance
  • Non-reactive with metal, plastic, elastomers and rubber
  • Inert to liquid and gaseous oxygen
  • Excellent radiation hardness
  • Nonflammable
  • Extremely wide operating temperature range
  • Low evaporation loss
  • Excellent water washout properties
  • Easily formulated into greases
  • Environmentally safe

Market Applications

Fomblin® PFPE lubricants have been a critical part of both the United States (NASA) and the European Space Agency space programs for over 25 years.

It is the ideal lubrication solution for the automotive industry, meeting lubrication challenges by providing the best possible performance for demanding applications. It is used as neat oil, formulated into greases, or deposited on the part using suitable carriers.

In the Oil & Gas industry there is an increasing need for hydraulic fluids able to withstand extreme temperatures of up to 260°C (500°F) and high pressures (30,000 psi). Conventional hydraulic fluids start degrading at 220°C (428°F), while Fomblin® PFPE oils are stable up to 290°C (554°F).
