About Apiezon

The Apiezon range of products, (manufactured since 1943 by M&I Materials Ltd in the UK), comprises premium quality high vacuum greases, vacuum waxes, compounds, lubricants, and vapour booster pump fluids. In addition, etch resistant waxes have also been developed as part of the Apiezon range.

Our technical and engineering teams are focused on application optimisation and product development. We have our own laboratories and also work closely with external test laboratories around the world.

Hydrocarbon Vacuum Greases

Apiezon hydrocarbon high vacuum greases have been used for many years and are highly regarded worldwide for their quality, consistency, and excellent performance in vacuum applications. The greases are silicone-free and highly resistant to creep (the unwelcome phenomenon associated with silicone-based products).

PFPE Vacuum Grease

Apiezon PFPE 501 is a chemically inert, high temperature, extreme pressure lubricant that is also NSF food grade certified. It is robust, versatile and can be used for sealing and lubricating under the most extreme operating conditions, including environments where aggressive chemicals and strong oxidising agents are present.

Waxes & Q Compound

Apiezon Waxes and Q Compound are well known for their quality, consistency, and versatility. All three waxes in the Apiezon range can be used as permanent or semi-permanent vacuum sealants or mounting media, while Apiezon Q Compound is an effective temporary vacuum sealant used as a short-term solution when vacuum leaks occur.

Vacuum & Booster Pump Oils

Apiezon vapour booster and turbo pump oils are known and respected around the globe for their superior quality and stability. Apiezon AP201 has an exceptionally high degree of oxidation resistance, while Apiezon AP303 offers low vapour pressure, meaning that it will not readily evaporate in operation.

Apiezon can be purchased through our established network of distributors. Alternatively, if you are based in the UK, Ireland or Europe you can now purchase our greases, AP201, Wax W sticks or Sealing Compound Q directly from M&I Materials via ourĀ Apiezon online shop.
