PFPE Vacuum Grease
If you’re running vacuum systems in your laboratory and you aren’t using high vacuum grease, you’re making a big mistake. For a step-by-step guide on how to use this vacuum grease, check out our vacuum grease guide!
Not only does a high-quality vacuum grease create a tighter seal, but it also protects your glassware and prevents pieces of expensive glass from getting stuck together.
We’ve used many different types of grease in our own labs, and we only carry brands that live up to the highest standards of industrial applications.
- creates a supreme vacuum seal
- inert to prevent unwanted reactions
- extreme temperature performance
- reduces friction and wear-and-tear on your glassware
- reduces contamination in your lab
Supreme vacuum seal.
This new PFPE Apiezon vacuum grease helps you get a supreme vacuum seal thanks to its unique molecular structure (perfluoropolyether).
The grease is a polymer of long, repeating carbon chains, consisting of: oxygen, fluorine, and carbon.
Due to the strong bonding between fluorine and oxygen (bonded to carbon), the vacuum grease can stay inert. These strong bonds prevent other molecules from interacting with the grease
Extreme temperature performance.
The stability of the polymer provides supreme temperature performance while being able to survive highly reactive chemical reactions such as: acids, liquid oxygen and corrosives.
Effective down to a very thin layer.
Due to the linear structure of the molecules (and bonded inert fluorine atoms), this vacuum grease can be spread into very thin layers, reducing friction and wear on your glassware.
Keep unwanted contaminants at bay.
A thin layer of this vacuum grease allows adjacent molecules to “slide by” without any interaction. This leads to reduced contamination in your system.
