If youâ€™re running vacuum systems in your laboratory and you arenâ€™t using high vacuum grease, youâ€™re making a big mistake.
Not only does a high-quality vacuum grease create a tighter seal, it also protects your glassware and prevents pieces of expensive glass from getting stuck together.
Weâ€™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.
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:Â 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 preventÂ other molecules from interacting with the grease
The stability of the polymer provides supreme temperature performance while beingÂ able to survive highly reactive chemical reactions such as: acids, liquid oxygen and corrosives.
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.
A thin layer of this vacuum grease allows adjacent molecules toÂ â€œslide byâ€Â without any interaction. This leads to reduced contamination in your system.
