A new stabilizer for fluorinated lubricants, either oils or greases, was developed stemming from the chemistry of perfluoropolyethers. The additive shows good efficiency in improving the stability of perfluoropolyether oils at very high temperatures in presence of metals and under oxidative environments, extending thus the life of the formulated lubricants. Some specific tests were carried out in order to assess performances in applications. Furthermore, as a first approach, grazing infrared reflection-absorption spectroscopy was used as a probe for studying structural and topological issues relative to additive-surface interactions.
