In this article we are going to explore the best lubricants for the textiles industry.
Industrial processes in the textiles industry are becoming increasingly demanding, which is why Krytox offers a range of products designed for specific applications in each sector.
Krytox Lubricants for Textiles
Krytox understands the needs and challenges of textile manufacturers and factories. Our Krytox lubricants and greases offer high performance, cost-effective and long life solutions for textile machines. This helps in avoiding costly equipment failure, maintenance and downtime. That is why, here at Antala, we are a leading supplier of high performance PFPE lubricants for the textile industry.
Krytox lubricants are designed to outperform conventional lubricants, withstanding extreme temperatures from –57°C to 400°C.
Krytox lubricants maintain their chemistry even at extreme temperatures which can cause conventional lubricants to carbonise and destroy the bearing or gear. Since Krytox does not char, it does not leave tar in the bearings, which helps in increasing the safety of the machine.
Krytox lubricants can be the ideal choice for a variety of textile applications, including:
- Frame chain bearings
- Cross screw boxes
- Bearings in hot areas of chimney furnaces.
- Bearings in dryer cans and steamers.
- High speed motors.
- Lifting roller bearings on dyeing machines.

Textile factories and manufacturers around the world have experienced the value that Krytox can bring to their operations. Here is one such story:
ShaoYang Textile Machinery Co. Ltd, a leading textile finishing plant in China, uses Krytox in its rack oven chains.
“Krytox GPL 227 keeps operations running. We put 4 grams in each bearing. Even at operating temperatures up to 220°C and speeds of 100 meters/min, Krytox continues to deliver without any carbonisation issues.” said Mr. Yang Jian Jun, director of business.
