Perfluorinated polyethers are an important component of the long-term strategy of the USAF, as high-temperature lubricants. Current, commercially-available materials are exemplified by the KRYTOX 1 DuPont, FOMBLIN 2 Montefluos, and DEMNUM 3 Daikin fluids. All of these products involve a polymerisation, of a fluorinated precursor, which can be difficult to control. In particular, it is difficult to obtain high molecular weight material.
