Vacuum Greases - Hydrocarbon

Vacuum Greases - Hydrocarbon

The Apiezon family of hydrocarbon high vacuum greases have been serving the market for many years and are highly regarded for their quality, consistency and excellent performance in vacuum applications.

These Apiezon greases are hydrocarbon based, silicone-free and highly resistant to creep, the undesirable phenomenon associated with silicone-based products. Using Apiezon reduces the chance of grease travelling away from the area of application and contaminating adjacent surfaces. In addition the ultra high vacuum grease ensures ultimate cleanliness and low outgassing without contaminating vacuum systems.

  • Excellent performance in a wide range of vacuum applications
  • Silicone-free, highly creep resistant
