Aerospace Equipment Lubricants

products and services designed to overcome the challenges of the vacuum environment

With 35 years’ experience of providing solutions for the Aerospace industry, Castrol’s Liquid Engineers are well placed when it comes to meeting the challenges of the vacuum environment.

We know that your equipment needs to function in volatile conditions and that application performance is crucial when facing evaporative weight loss at high temperatures, vapor pressure and/or low temperatures.

Our products have been successfully used in many manned and unmanned missions in Earth’s orbit, as well as missions to the Moon and to Mars. The Castrol Brayco range of low outgassing and low-volatility lubricants has been proven to enhance equipment functions by virtually eliminating lubricant outgassing and greatly reducing the formation of particulates and chemical reactions. Our perfluoropolyether (PFPE) lubricants are ideal for vacuum, cleanroom and reactive chemical (e.g. oxygen) environments and applications. They are LOX/GOX compatible, exhibit a strong resistance to most chemicals, acids and bases and are not soluble in jet fuel and rocket applications.

Whatever your vacuum requirements, we can help you find the right solution and offer services and training to meet your specific needs.
The following products are recommended by our Liquid Engineers for the varied needs of your operations:

Specialty oils
Specialty military specification greases
Specialty cleaners and solvents
