PFPE (perfluoropolyethers) are very stable and inert chemical substances which, in the right chemical composition, produce an extremely inert material with excellent lubricating properties. PFPE base oils are the basis of modern lubricant formulations for extreme requirements where conventional mineral, synthetic or silicone-based lubricating greases fail, such as low or very high temperatures and contact with aggressive media such as highly concentrated alkalis, acids, gases and cleaning agents. Furthermore, they are used for sensitive materials, such as plastics and elastomers, as well as for wear-prone sliding couples, especially when long-term or lifetime lubrication is required. setral® PFPE lubricants were developed specifically for this purpose decades ago. They ensure functionality, safety and service life for individual components, assemblies or manufacturing processes. In addition, setral® PFPE lubricants open up new possibilities in design and application, resulting in enormous cost-saving potential.
Friction points for which PFPE lubricants are the only and most economical lubricants solution exist in almost every industry. Our continuously growing customer base makes us to one of the leading manufacturer of PFPE greases. Typical applications are e.g. frictions pairings of metal and/or plastic, slide and roller bearings, guide bars, valves sealings, fittings and electrical contacs in more than the following indsutries:
setral® PFPE lubricants generate high performance combinations in the field of specialty lubricants. They are the first and best choice when it comes to performance, safety, quality and cost efficiency.

setral® PFPE lubricants Application areas:
setral® PFPE lubricants display its entire benefits if a good adherence on the lubrication surface is allowed. Therefore a clean and residue-free surface is essential, which is achieved by thorough cleaning. For this cleaning, the use of CLEAN-setral-AN/U or CLEAN-setral-FD with mechanical support, followed by post-cleaning with CLEAN-setral-INT/648 is recommended..
Residues of used lubricants or corrosion protection have to be eliminated because the pure PFPE lubricant is not miscible in any ratio with other lubricants. Thus residues would avoid the surface wetting of the friction point.
When determining the quantity of grease as well as selecting the right viscosity of oil for your application, it is important to take into account the density of PFPE lubricants, which is almost twice as high.
Further information is available on the material data sheets. Our experts will consult you on request and find the right solution for your application.
With more than 800 lubricants besides PFPE lubricants we offer a solution for almost every lubrication application.
