Vacuum Grease and Vacuum Epoxy
Forms a Reliable, High Strength, Long-Term Bond with Metals, Ceramics, or Glass
No Solvent Necessary to Evaporate
Hardens in 1 Hour at Room Temperature, Cures in 24 Hours
Hardens in 30 Minutes at 60 °C, Cures in 90 Minutes
Mixing Ratio: 2 Parts Resin to 1 Part Hardener
82 g (2.9 oz) Base Resin, 36 g (1.3 oz) Hardener
Please note that epoxy resins are prone to solidification or crystallization. If this occurs, the product can easily be returned to a liquid state by immersing the tube in warm [approximately 100 °F (38 °C)] water for 30 minutes. Ensure all material is melted prior to use. Allow the resin component to return to room temperature prior to mixing with the hardener.
Recommended for 1x10-6 Torr Vacuums
Resistant to Most Chemicals

This silicone grease is very popular as a general laboratory lubricant and is commonly used as a stopcock grease, to lubricate synthetic or silicone rubber gaskets, or at glass-to-rubber boundaries. However, it should not be used on fluorosilicone O-rings and gaskets. In addition, the lubricant can also be used for a wide array of non-vacuum applications such as the lubrication of water-treating equipment, general laboratory equipment, or O-rings for binoculars and telescopes. It can also be used to prevent fogging on delicate lenses and mirrors.
Vacuum-Compatible Grease to 10-9 Torr
Prolongs Actuator Lifetime
Ready to Dispense
This Apiezon grease, which is ideal for re-lubricating the leadscrew threads of our Z8 and ZST actuators, has excellent anti-seize properties. It contains PTFE for higher lubricity, is recommended for both general use and vacuum applications down to 10-9 Torr, and has an optimal working range of 10 °C to 30 °C (50 °F to 86 °F). The grease comes in a syringe for easy application.
Note: It is recommended that the leadscrews of the Z8 and ZST motors be lubricated every 50,000 cycles or 6 months.
