Silicone Grease: RPL-Chemplex-710

Product Description:

RPL-Chemplex-710 silicone grease is fully synthetic PAO grease manufactured from a 100% silicone base fluid combined with an inert silica thickener to enhance its chemical and physical properties. It is smooth and tacky with an exceptional resistance to corrosive environments, acids and solvents. It has excellent high temperature stability, durability and electrical properties. Unlike certain petroleum lubricants, RPL-Chemplex-710 does not dissolve or react in the presence of many active processing materials because of its special inert properties.

RPL-Chemplex-710 prevents the sticking of valves and 0-rings at high temperatures and in freezing conditions. It provides an excellent seal between synthetic rubber and plastic parts in contact with metal in both high vacuum and pressure systems. It is used in a variety of applications where high dielectric strength, water repellency and corrosive protection are necessary.

Typical applications include valve assemblies, O-rings and plastic gears. It can also be used in bearings and gears where wide temperature ranges are encountered, especially in lower speed and lower load applications. RPL-Chemplex-710 is also suitable for a large range of "sealed-for-life" applications whenever long-term temperature performance is crucial.

Did you know?

Silicone greases can be excellent substitutes in applications where petroleum products are unsuitable or undesirable.

For instance, plastics, paints and seals that may be damaged in the presence of petroleum will not react to silicone which tends to be chemically inert, non-toxic , non-staining and exceptionally stable.
