Krytox™ XHT-BDX Grease is a special extreme high temperature grease with low oil evaporation, thickened with a non-melting additive to allow use at temperatures above the melting point of common greases.
Krytox™ XHT-BDX has a viscosity of 738 cSt @40°C, higher that Krytox™ XHT-BD Grease.
Krytox™ XHT-BD series are special extreme high temperature greases with low oil evaporation. Krytox™ XHT-BDX grease uses a special non-melting high temperature thickener.
Krytox™ XHT-BD series greases are nonflammable and chemically inert. Krytox™ allows extended lubrication intervals and longer equipment life.
Krytox™ XHT-BD greases are designed for use where the temperatures are in the 288°C (500°F) range and higher, where there is a danger of melting the standard PTFE thickener.
The base oil is an extremely viscous oil that provides good viscosity and lower evaporation at high temperatures.

Features & Benefits
Krytox™ XHT-BDX Grease has excellent lubrication over a broad temperature range.
Due to their low surface tensions, Krytox™ base oils easily wet metallic surfaces. Because of their inertness, Krytox™ base oils have little or no adverse effect on metals.
Testing of metals at 340°C (644°F) in the absence of air has shown little evidence of corrosion. The presence of molybdenum in the metals improves corrosion resistance further.
Krytox™ XHT-BDX grease is typically for use in low speed bearings or in pillow housings and will shear at high speeds, causing loss of oil in sealed bearings.
The oil in the grease can begin to slowly evaporate at temperatures above 350°C (626°F), and this will occur at an increasing rate as temperatures increase. It can withstand intermittent spikes up to 400°C (752°F). Re-lubrication could be required at these temperatures to achieve optimum life.
Krytox™ greases are nontoxic lubricants that maintain their lubricity and viscosity properties to reduce maintenance costs associated with re-lubrication, component failure, and downtime in demanding applications. They are created by thickening synthetic perfluoropolyether-based oil (PFPE) with polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) powder.
