The tribological properties of three types of commercially available perfluoropolyalkylethers (PFPEs) were measured under vacuum using a vacuum four-ball friction apparatus with 440C stainless steel balls as test specimens. A non-fluorinated polyalkylether was also used as a reference, and it showed high friction and wear at atmospheric pressure due to local seizure, while PFPEs did not. On the contrary, PFPEs showed high wear under vacuum at high load while maintaining low friction coefficients. Derivatives of PFPE, i.e. carboxylic acid, alcohol and phosphate, were also studied. The lubrication mechanism of PFPE can be explained using the analogy of ordinary EP additives, considering their reactivity with the surface.
