Description

DuPont™ Krytox®GPL 100 Oil Lubricant

The Pro uses 100% pure DuPont™ Krytox®GPL 100 Oil Lubricant whenever oil is allowed. This is a premium synthetic thin-film lubricant containing no additives giving it an extremely low viscosity. DuPont™ Krytox®GPL 100 Oil Lubricant will outperform any graphite or any other oil on the market when its applied correctly. Krytox is also much easier and faster to apply than graphite.

Krytox is almost undetectable. When properly applied, Krytox is much cleaner and leaves no trace on the tracks.

This stuff is also perfect for that nice paint job that you worked so hard on. Graphite will stain and ruin a light color paint job but Krytox will not.  DO NOT ADD dry lubes such as GRAPHTIE, MOLY, Or Tungsten. The dry lube will gum up the viscosity of the solvent, thus increasing friction!

Available in 3 sizes:  1/8 oz, 1/4, and 1/2 oz fluid volume.  More than plenty enough to last years and years because you only use 1 drop per axle.

Krytox® can be mixed with virtually all types of solvents without deteriorating.  Mix with rubbing alcohol to get just the right amount for race day. Or there are other ‘secret’ recipes you can experiment with.  This lube is best utilized with the highest grit axles you can possibly polish to.  The harder, the smoother the axle, the less friction to slow your car down.

100% PURE KRYTOX  Will Help You Win Your Battle Against Friction.

Please check your local rules. Many pack and district rules only permit dry lubricants such as graphite.

Application Instructions 

When using Krytox oil it is important to remember that less is best. Applying too much Krytox will cause the viscosity of the oil to slow the car down.

To apply:

  1. Place two drops of Krytox on the axle shaft where the wheel will rest.
  2. Gently turn the axle with your fingers to allow the Krytox to coat the shaft where the wheel will rest.
  3. Place a wheel onto the axle shaft.
  4. Spin the wheel a few times and allow to come to a stop.
  5. Remove the wheel.
  6. Wick off the excess oil from the axle with a clean piece of paper.
  7. Reinstall the wheel back onto the axle.
  8. Repeat for the other axles and wheels.

Once your wheels are installed and your axles are tuned, do not remove your wheels for any reason.  Apply a new SINGLE drop, spim the wheel, wick away excess with the corner of a clean piece of paper.  In tests, Krytox® GL-100 will last more than 20 heats. It does evaporate, but very slowly unless the car is stored in a hot location. We recommend lubricating with Krytox® GL-100 no more than two days before the race.
