Vacuum grease is a lubricant which has less volatility and is majorly used for several applications especially in low pressure environments. As lubricant, vacuum grease is also employed widely as a sealant for sealing various joints in vacuum systems. This is generally limited to soft vacuum lubricants since high temperatures or ultra high vacuums may pose problems with the outgassing grease. Grease is the most commonly used material with glass vacuum systems. All type of metal systems generally make use of knife edge seals in the soft metals. Vacuum grease is used to prevent corrosion in electronics manufacturing processes.
