Talk about vacuum

Finding lubricants that can perform in vacuum application has always been a challenge. Often, manufacturers have sacrifices other performance characteristic (load rating; limiting speed; temperature capability; and bearing life) to get some ability to function in a vacuum environment.

UTA has developed a CSL product capable of the same high performance standards in a vacuum that you expect to get from CSL in a normal atmosphere.

To achieve this, UTA uses molybdenum di-sulfide (MoS2) as the base lubricant instead of graphite (graphite is not an effective lubricant in a vacuum). The result is a series of product, CSL250V, CSL450V, and CSL660V, that provide exceptional performance in vacuum applications within each products’ intended temperature range. And outgassing is nearly non-existent even at elevated temperatures!
