Halocarbon is excited to launch InfinX, an innovative e-commerce brand and website developed to simplify ordering from our Engineered Fluids portfolio of products. With the launch of InfinX, Halocarbon offers a broad line of high-performance fluorinated lubricants that goes beyond the chemistry of the base oil. InfinX greases and oils are designed using the latest in PCTFE or PFPE technology—providing our customers with a choice of properties best suited for their unique application needs.
The InfinX e-commerce website provides our customers with a streamlined, direct-from-manufacturer ordering platform, and builds on Halocarbon’s 70+ year history as a leader in fluorochemical innovation and specialty fluorinated lubricant technology. We designed our InfinX product portfolio to fit our customer’s unique needs, creating new convenient unit-sized packages and easily accessible product guides and technical information. With the launch of InfinX, Halocarbon is proud to continue our commitment to innovation and excellence in fluorochemistry.
Introducing: InfinX High-Performance Lubricants
With the launch of InfinX, Halocarbon is initially prioritizing the supply of some of our most highly-demanded fluorinated greases. These grease products are formulated using Halocarbon PCTFE technology and our new PFPE technology. The launch of this initial product line offers a broad assortment of fluorolubes and specialty lubricants under one brand, and InfinX will continue to add new products throughout 2022.
Our current portfolio of InfinX greases is focused on Industrial Maintenance Repair and Operations (MRO) and Vacuum Pumps, Manifolds, and Compressors (HaloVac). This family of high-performance lubricants is formulated for customer-specific applications and is extremely well-suited for individual or bulk ordering. The field of tribology has evolved significantly over the last several decades, and these innovative lubricant solutions have emerged to embody the full-spectrum of technological advancements in these industries.
What Exactly Are Fluorinated Lubricants?
Fluorinated lubricants are PCTFE- and PFPE-based oils and greases, or fluids that are specifically formulated to improve industrial manufacturing efficiency. Using advanced chemistry, Halocarbon PCTFE and Halocarbon PFPE technology provide exceptional performance, and are made to retain their properties in the most extreme environments. These circumstances and exposures include, but are not limited to:
- Extreme temperatures
- High pressure
- Harsh chemical environments
- Extensive wear and tear
- Highly oxidizing conditions
Halocarbon leads the fluorochemical lubricant industry in the development and distribution of high-performance PCTFE and PFPE lubricants. With our latest breakthrough innovation, InfinX, we aim to raise the bar on our time-to-market and set a higher standard for product accessibility, continuing our commitment to innovation in order to meet our customers’ evolving needs.
PCTFE and PFPE remain the two main base oil technologies for the development of high-performance fluorinated lubricants. Though these chemistries are equipped with similar non-reactive and non-flammable properties, they each provide unique advantages for a wide range of end-use applications.
For instance, PFPE-based oils and greases offer enhanced lubricity despite use in various harsh conditions. Conversely, PCTFE-based lubricants exist as oils, greases, and waxes, which are well-suited to reduce friction and provide cooling in metalworking processes. These applications include the cutting or forming of refractory metals and their alloys, such as molybdenum, tungsten, niobium, and tantalum. PCTFE-based oils are also prevalently utilized in the presence of strong Lewis acids, where conventional PFPE-based oils may degrade. Additionally, though PFPE-based lubricants perform well at elevated temperatures, PCTFE-based solutions offer tremendous thermal performance, offering superior lubricity at cryogenic and ultra-low temperatures.
