LOX-8 Paste and Grease play a critical role in aerospace operations world-wide. Not only is LOX-8 used to prevent leaks in liquid and gaseous oxygen, it is also used in fuel systems and with rocket fuels such as kerosene.

LOX-8 is specifically formulated for wet and dry conditions. It is non-migrating, remaining where it is applied. LOX-8 is ideal where repetitive assembly and disassembly are required. Being that it is non-flammable, non-toxic, non-hardening, and is anti-galling with stainless steel, it provides superior performance as a lubricant and sealant. LOX-8 is stable from -400° F to +550° F and is certified for use in gaseous and liquid oxygen.

LOX-8 Paste and LOX-8 Grease:

  • Have been tested by BAM and WHA International for use with oxygen
  • Are used by aerospace companies throughout the world
  • Prevent galling in stainless steel fittings and may be used on both metal and plastic fittings
  • Are NSF-approved for use in food processing and handling facilities
  • Extend service life of equipment used in fuel systems
  • Seal fine threads in high / low pressure and cryogenic systems
  • Are compatible with rocket fuels such as kerosene

LOX-8 Paste is Praxair GS 38 approved. NSN 8030-00-829-3928. MIL-PRF-27617G.

LOX-8 Grease is available as NLGI 1 and NLGI 4, and provides long-term lubrication on valves, pumps, and gears. MIL-PRF-27617G.
