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.

Proven Experience with Textile Manufacturers

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.

Mills, finishing plants and manufacturers choose Krytox for many reasons:

  • High performance
  • Worldwide availability
  • Resistant to chemicals and detergents commonly used in the textile industry
  • Provides long-term lubrication and longer equipment life.
  • Without oxidation or degradation.
  • Offers protection against rust and high temperature corrosion.
  • Compatible with oxygen and chlorine, and all metals, elastomers, and plastics
  • Thermally stable over a wide temperature range
  • World class technical service.
