Halocarbon 56 oil is a medium molecular weight polymer of chlorotrifluoroethylene (PCTFE). This inert oil is manufactured by a controlled polymerization process and then is stabilized to give it some very unique properties. This oil is safe, nonflammable, and chemically inert – safe for oxygen, chlorine, and most reactive gas services. It has good lubricity, high thermal stability, and low compressibility.
Halocarbon 56 oil is one of the medium viscosity inert oils that is manufactured by Halocarbon Products. The major application of Halocarbon 56 oil is for general purpose inert lubrication, such as bearings, compressors, gear boxes, and pumps. This Halocarbon oil can be interchanged with hydrocarbon oils with some slight modification. Please see the SDS for more details.
