The Apiezon family of greases provides solutions for a wide spectrum of temperatures and applications. The range includes vacuum grease specially formulated for use in cryogenic applications. All Apiezon products aresilicone-free and highly creep resistant, reducing the chance of grease travelling away from the area of application and contaminating adjacent surfaces.
Apiezon greases have the additional benefit of a powerful gettering action which gives rise to strong absorption properties. These greases are easy to apply and remove, have a ten year shelf life and boast a long and successful track record including use by NASA, NATO, US & UK Military.
