Apiezon AP100 Grease is a silicone-free vacuum grease and lubricant, containing PTFE and exhibits extremely high levels of lubricity; It has been shown to provide 8 times the level of lubrication offered by standard, petroleum-based lubricating greases. It’s unique properties means it is frequently used to protect against corrosion and abrasion, particularly under high load conditions and to prevent seizure in stopcocks, taps and small metal fastenings.
This grease helps to increase the accuracy of analytical techniques and improve yields in semiconductor manufacture by contamination avoidance. In addition, it is used for surface coating applications where silicone contamination can lead to poor surface adhesion and incomplete coating defects.
AP100 is designed for use at ambient temperatures (generally between 10 to 30°C / 50 to 86°F). If you are looking for a grease capable of performing at higher temperatures, AGY4394 Apiezon 101 or AGB7271 Apiezon H Grease may be more appropriate.
