Properties

The Solution to Your Lubricant Problems

Fomblin® PFPE lubricants are clear, colorless and odorless oils that remain liquid in a very wide range of temperatures, spanning from –100°C (-148°F) up to 290°C (554°F). 

Fomblin® PFPEs are thermally stable, chemically inert, and compatible with metals, hydrogenated polymers, oxygen, and aggressive gases even at very high temperatures.

They are non-flammable and non-toxic. They have low vapor pressure, good dielectric properties, low refractive index, and low surface tension.

They represent the lubricants of choice for critical applications in aggressive chemical environments and high temperature or wide working-temperature range situations. Fomblin® PFPE oils can be thickened with polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) to create white and homogeneous lubricating greases with varying consistencies.
