Fomblin® Y grades are perfluorinated polyether inert fluids for use as lubricants in vacuum pumps. Since the Fomblin® PFPE chemical chain contains only carbon, fluorine and oxygen atoms, these fluids have exceptional properties such as: • Low vapor pressure • Chemical inertness • High thermal stability • Good lubricant properties • No flash or fire point • Non-toxicity • Excellent compatibility with metals, plastics, elastomers. Fomblin® Y HVAC fluids have been specially developed in order to provide superior performance in high vacuum applications, especially systems exposed to aggressive gases.
