Chemours™ Krytox™ lubricants

Krytox™ does not react with most metals, elastomers, plastics, or process chemicals..

Krytox™ Applications

Krytox™ is widely used as an assembly lubricant for valves, seals, threaded components, and o-rings. Krytox™ is inert and does not react with metal, plastic, or elastomer components, nor does it react with process chemicals. Because it is a hydrocarbon it does not wash away with hydrocarbon process streams. It forms a thick lubricating film and stays in place.

What to do:

  • Start with clean components
  • Apply Krytox™ grease or oil to the assembly components as appropriate
  • Put the components into service


  • Excellent lubrication properties
  • No oxidation of lubricant
  • Non-reactive with materials or process streams
  • Does not migrate
  • Does not wash away with hydrocarbon process streams
