The technology relates to a lubricant additive composed of nanometric tungsten disulphide (WS2) powder, nanometric molybdenum disulphide (MoS2) powder, dispersant, antioxidant and metal deactivator. The most distinctive feature of the product is the use of WS2 nanoparticles, considered potentially to be the best lubricating nanomaterial in the industry.
The nanoparticles, averaging 100nm-200nm in size, are created by a proprietary process that allows
them to be evenly dispersed in the base oil. The nanoparticles form a protective layer on metal surfaces which reduces abrasion to friction-prone surfaces.Mini-Traction-Machine (MTM) tests also show that lubricants containing the WS2 nanoparticles provides significant improvement in lubrication performance.
