Perfluoropolyether (PFPE) oils are only composed of carbon (C), fluorine (F) and oxygen (O) atoms. The existing C-O and C-F bonds are highly stable. For this reason PFPE oils are practically inert against all chemical and oxidizing influences. Some notable PFPE properties include:
•Free of additives
•Low vapor pressure
•Good viscosity index
•Wide operating temperature range
•Good radiation stability
•CFC-free and Ozone friendly
•No flash or fire point
Examples of use:
Pumping of strong oxidants like oxygen, ozone or nitrous oxides, as well as reactive substances like halogens, hydrogen halides and conditionally Lewis acids. If you are operating a Leybold vacuum pump, please contact us at Intlvac Inc to learn if your application is suitable for the use of PFPE fluid.
