Apiezon L Grease is a silicone and halogen-free ultra-high vacuum grease suitable for use scientific and industrial applications.

Apiezon L Grease has the best vapour pressure properties of all the Apiezon products and is therefore suitable for use in ultra-high vacuum applications. L Grease is regularly used by highly respected organisations such as The European Space Agency, NASA and NATO.

It is designed for use at ambient temperatures (generally between 10 to 30°C / 50 to 86°F). If you are looking for a grease capable of performing at higher temperatures, Apiezon AP101 or Apiezon H Grease may be more appropriate.

Apiezon L Grease is a silicone and halogen-free ultra-high vacuum grease which:

  • exhibits an extremely low vapour pressure of 7 x 10-11 Torr at 20°C
  • does not suffer from contamination problems associated with silicone based greases such as ‘creep’ or ‘carry over’
  • provides excellent lubrication
  • is recommended for use at ambient temperatures
  • has built-in radiation resistance
  • has powerful ‘gettering’ action, meaning it absorbs potentially harmful grease and chemical impurities on metal and glass surfaces
  • is easy to clean and remove as it is soluble in hydrocarbon solvents

As a halogen-free product Apiezon L Grease has a built-in resistance to irradiation. Other high vacuum greases such as esters, silicones or halogenated paraffins decompose at radiation levels of 0.1 MGy or less. In contrast, L Grease maintains excellent lubrication properties in high radiation applications, despite a small increase in stiffness when irradiated with 4 MeV electrons to 1 MGy.
