Halocarbon 0.8 oil is a low 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 0.8 oil is the lowest viscosity inert oil that is manufactured by Halocarbon Products. Halocarbon 0.8 oil is used mostly as an inert low temperature bath fluid. This oil has a very low pour point and is not miscible with water. Halocarbon 0.8 oil can be used as an inert process solvent in certain applications and has very good hydrocarbon oil solvency.
