Radiation Resistant

Radiation resistant grease made from molecules containing aromatic ring structures exhibit greater stability towards radiation-induced decomposition than lubricants with straight chain hydrocarbon structures. Radiation overdose/exposure of a lubricant can result in thickening and polymerisation of the grease base oil, darkening of colour, oxidation and degradation of the thickening system or additives.

We offer a radiation resistant line of base oils containing aromatic ring structures such as Polyphenylether (PPE) and Alkylated Naphthalenes (AN) as well as product line up of non-hydrogenous Perfluoropolyether (PFPE) grease and oil; the fluorine-carbon bond is one of the strongest bonds known in organic molecules and therefore resistant to radiation degradation.
