Halocarbon 1.8 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 1.8 oil is one of the lower viscosity inert oils that is manufactured by Halocarbon. Some of the uses of Halocarbon 1.8 oil are as a metal working and wire drawing fluid.
