Castrol Braycote 601
Grease, Rust Preventive, Rocket
Propellant Compatible Low Temperature
Castrol Braycote 601 EF is a smooth,
buttery, translucent, off-white, NLGI #2 grease. Its base oil (Castrol Brayco®
815Z) is a perfluorinated polyether, with exceptional chemical resistance,
extremely low volatility, and a wide temperature service range. The grease is
non-toxic, nonflammable, and does not use any chlorofluorocarbons (CFC's)
during product manufacture. This product exhibits unusually high load-carrying capabilities
as measured by the Four-Ball EP Test, and contains a rust and corrosion
inhibitor for extra component protection. Castrol Fluoroclean™ X100 or Castrol
Fluoroclean™ HE can be used to remove this lubricant. Refer to the data sheets
for these products for information regarding these products.
Braycote 601 EF is designed to operate
in the presence of rocket fuels and oxidizers and high vacuum. It is frequently
used in space applications including the Space Shuttle and satellites. It
should also be considered in any application where a hostile chemical or
extreme environmental conditions would preclude the use of an ordinary grease.
Typical applications include ball and roller bearings, gears, and as an
assembly lubricant for Orings and elastomers. Perfluorinated greases, such as
this product, exhibit excellent shelf life due to their intrinsic inertness.
-80ºC to 204ºC (-112ºF to 400ºF)
Braycote 601 EF is compatible with most
commonly utilized materials, plastics, and elastomers. It may be adversely
affected by Lewis Acid Catalysts such as aluminum chloride, at elevated
temperatures. Newly exposed rubbing surfaces of aluminum, magnesium and
titanium alloys may react with this product under certain conditions. Such
systems should be thoroughly evaluated. Surfaces must be well cleaned of
organic rust inhibitors prior to grease application to insure proper
lubrication. This product is not recommended for use in applications under high
vacuum with loads exceeding 100,000 psi for extended periods of time.
Braycote 601 EF is available in 2 oz
and 4 oz (AVDP) disposable polypropylene syringes, 1 lb jars, and 1.75 lb cartridges.
A specially prepared "micronic", ultra clean version is available
