What makes Fluorolube® oils and greases a preferable choice in lubricants?
Fluorolube® oils and greases are synthetic, saturated, hydrogen-free, low molecular weight polymers of chlorotrifluoroethylenes (CTFE). They are chemically inert and non-flammable, have high thermal stability, good lubricity, high dielectric strength, high density, low compressibility, and non-polar characteristics.
What is the most commonly used Fluorolube® Oil?
Fluorolube® FS-5 and S-30 are the most widely used oils and can be used for various applications. Oils vary based on viscosity (or thickness) to a light grease.
Can Fluorolube® lubricants be recycled?
Fluorolube® lubricants may be recycled. Any company who desires to recycle their lubricants, like any other spent waste streams, should contact and evaluate reputable waste suppliers in their area.
What is the most outstanding property of Fluorolube® oils and greases?
Fluorolube® lubricants are chemically inert and compatible with many other chemicals including (but not limited to): chlorine, hydrogen peroxide, ethanol, methanol, oxygen, and nitric acid. (Refer to Fluorolube® Oil and Grease brochure for complete listing).
What solvents are miscible with Fluorolube® oils and greases?
Fluorolube® oils and greases are miscible with the following organic materials: acetone, benzene, hexane, kerosene, mineral oils, methyl ethyl ketone. (Refer to Fluorolube® Oil and Grease brochure for complete listing).

Here are the top GPE Cycloaliphatic Epoxy Resins questions. View All Questions.
What are GPE Cycloaliphatic Epoxy Resins?
Cycloaliphatic Epoxy Resins are di-functional epoxy resins with an aliphatic backbone, high oxirane content, no chlorine and low in viscosity. These high performance resins are designed for applications that require superior arc and arc track resistance, high heat distortion, UV-resistance, and ionic purity. These products were originally developed by Union Carbide and sold until recently by Dow Chemical, when they exited the market. ERL 4221 is the standard general purpose product that was offered by Dow. Gabriel offset to ERL 4221 is GPE-221.
How are Cycloaliphatic Epoxy Resins different from Standard Liquid Epoxy Resins?
Cycloaliphatic Epoxy Resins are different from standard bisphenol-A epoxy resins like DER 331 or EPON 828. Standard bisphenol-A epoxy resins are made from Epichlorohydrin and Bisphenol-A, while Cycloaliphatic Epoxy Resins are made by oxidation of Cyclo Olefins with Peracetic Acid. The backbone of Cycloaliphatic Epoxy Resins is aliphatic and cyclic in nature unlike the standard epoxy resins. Cycloaliphatic Epoxy Resins also do not contact hydrolysable chorine, a key requirement for electrical, electronic and power industry applications for low dielectric constant and excellent arc-track resistance properties.
Where are the GPE Cycloaliphatic Epoxy Resins commonly used?
Cycloaliphatic Epoxy Resins are used in a various applications that include Filament Wound Composites, Electrical and Electronic applications like Insulators, bushing, Power Industry, Encapsulants for LEDS and Optoelectronics, Potting for Transformers and High Voltage Coils, Inks and Varnishes, Laminating Adhesives, Packaging-Overprint varnishes for Plastic and Rigid Containers and as Acid Scavengers. They can also be used as reactive modifiers to lower the viscosity of Bisphenol-A Epoxy Resins and increase the UV resistance.
What are the key advantages of using GPE Cycloaliphatic Epoxy Resins?
Cycloaliphatic Epoxy Resins are aliphatic in nature and hence are light in color and offer excellent UV stability. They offer excellent weatherability, superior arc and arc track resistance. They have high oxirane content and result in products with high cross-link density, high Tg and heat distortion temperature. They have no hydrolysable chlorine and have low potential for skin sensitization. Because of their short, compact structure, they are significantly lower in viscosity and enable the formulators with VOC free or low VOC products. When combined with polyols, they result in a good balance of toughness and heat distortion temperature.
What are the various products that Gabriel Performance offers as part of GPE Cycloaliphatic Products portfolio?
GPE-221 is a standard, general purpose use cycloaliphatic epoxy resins equivalent to the industrial standard Dow ERL 4221. GPE-226 is distilled, low ionic content, low viscosity version of GPE-221 (Dow equivalent ERL-4221D or Cyracure UVR-6105). GPE-228 is the flexible cycloaliphatic epoxy resin used in combination with GPE-221 and GPE-226 or by itself as a standalone product for applications requiring good flexibility and toughness (Dow equivalent ERL-4299 or Cyracure UVR-6128).

About: GPM Mercaptan Products
Here are the top GPM Mercaptan Products questions. View All Questions.
What are GPM Mercaptan Products?
GPM Mercaptans are epoxy curing agents with exceptionally rapid cure speed and hardness development properties. They offer a unique advantage of fast cure for both at ambient and low temperatures and in thin films. They are commonly used in various epoxy systems like the ‘5 minute’ consumer adhesives, industrial applications such as patching compounds, road marker adhesives, concrete repair products.
Where are the GPM Mercaptans commonly used?
GPM Mercaptans are typically used as epoxy curing agents. Their fast set characteristics enable consumers to formulate a ‘5 minute’ bonding adhesive with excellent bond strength to glass, metal, concrete and wood. GPM Mercaptans are used to formulate epoxy systems for various industrial applications such as patching compounds, road marker adhesives, grouts and concrete repair products, floor repairs, NSF potable water coatings, joint sealants, anchor bolt adhesives, automotive aftermarket repair compounds, hobby and craft adhesives and coatings.
Do GPM Mercaptans react with Epoxy Resins without any catalysts?
GPM Mercaptans by themselves react very slowly with Epoxy Resins at ambient temperatures. Tertiary amines like GPA-30 are used to activate GPM Mercaptans to result in rapid cures with Epoxy Resins.
Can GPM Mercaptans be used in combination with other epoxy curing agents?
GPM Mercaptans are compatible with other epoxy curing agents like unmodified amines like TETA, DETA, or modified amines, polyamides or amidoamines. Most commonly used by the customers using polyamides and amidoamines to offset their slow cure performance. Like with all curatives, customers needed to take precautions to prevent oxidation and nitrogen pad the containers while packaging to ensure good shelf life.
What is the typical functionality of GPM Mercaptans?
GPM Mercaptans have typical functionality of 3.
