PFPE Lubricants

PFPE Lubricants

Fluorinated products possess a unique combination of properties including:

  • NON FLAMMABLE – will not support combustion
  • THERMALLY STABLE – a very wide operating temperature range of –90 to 300°C
  • CHEMICALLY INERT – resistant to chemicals, solvents, acids & alkalis
  • BIOLOGICALLY INERT – non toxic and will not support biological growth.
  • COMPATIBLE with a wide range of materials  – they are inert to most rubbers, plastics, metals as well and liquid and gaseous oxygen.
  • LOW CO-EFFICIENT  OF FRICTION  – excellent wear prevention and high film strength.
  • LOW EVAPORATION RATE– even at high temperatures making them ideal in high vacuum applications.
  •  FLEXIBILITY—PFPE lubricants are ideal in many applications where their thermal stability and chemical resistance make other lubricants unusable.
  • NON-MIGRATORY— METALUB  PFPE products do not contain silicones and are non-migratory.
  •  FOOD APPROVED—many of our PFPE products are NSF H1 approved for use in the food industry.

Our PFPE’s offer stability in a range of temperatures up to 350°C and will not carbonise or form sticky deposits.

Equally they can be used in temperatures down to and including –90°C.Ourfluorinated lubricants have a unique combination of properties due to their unique chemistry including:-

  • Odourless
  • Colourless
  • Non Flammable
  • Thermally stable
  • Compatible with metals, plastics and elastomers
  • Chemically inert
  • Biologically inert
  • Low evaporation even at extreme high temperatures
  • Very low pour point, useable at cryogenic temperatures (depending on grade)
  • Wide range of viscosities
  • High Viscosity Index ( wide operating temperture range)

The METALUB PFPE products are available in a wide range of pack sizes, carriers, viscosities and sprays.

PFPE Fluorinated Aerosols

METALUB  manufacture a full range of perfluoropolyether (PFPE) sprays and aerosols which are chemically inert, oxygen compatible, non-flammable and non-migrating.

These lubricant sprays are used in a wide variety of industries in applications such as ‘o’ ring lubrication, mould release, mould tools, ejector pins, lubrication of glass channels in the automotive industry, an anti-squeak fluid in vehicles and as an assembly aid.

They are often used in situations where long-life lubrication is required & conventional lubricants are not suitable.

They can be utilised in extremes of temperature both high and low and are universally compatible lubricants. They are rubber and plastic compatible.

PFPE Fluorinated Oils

Perfluoropolether fluids (PFPE Oils) are synthetic fully fluorinated materials used as lubricants and coatings in the most extreme & critical lubrication applications. Fluorinated oils and greases offer the ultimate in lubricant performance throughout a wide range of different industries and applications where conventional and other synthetic lubricants are not able to survive.

METALUB  Group’s fluorinated lubricants under the brands MALUB and MFLU  offer the ultimate in choice from a full range of different viscosity fluids, pastes, greases and dispersions with additives where required to suit the specific application. They are also available in a range of different fluid and grease based aerosols.

Industries which use our PFPE’s include:

  • Chemical Industry
  • Aerospace
  • Packaging Industry
  • Textile Industry
  • Food Industry
  • Automotive Industry
  • Steel Manufacturing
  • Offshore, Marine & Mining Industries
  • Electrical & Electronics Industries

PFPE Grease

Our PFPE synthetic, fully fluorinated grease offer excellent high temperature and load bearing characteristics. They are also resistant to chemical agents, acids and alkali as well as water and vapours. They are often used in the lubrication of bearings on furnace trolley wheels and mechanisms in contact with oxygen, alkalis, solvents, gas and flammable fuels. They have an extremely long life and excel in aggressive working conditions.
