Recently very expensive products - IF-WS2 submicron particle lubricants, used only by government-funded military and space programs, minimize friction and wear, thereby reducing operating costs and extending equipment life.

Until recently IF-WS2 submicron particle lubricants were prohibitively expensive, used only by government-funded military and space programs. They minimize friction and wear, thereby reducing operating costs and extending equipment life using a technology protected by 110 worldwide patents. They are used in top technological processes such as at NASA, and in military and aviation technology. Since the beginning of fullerenes, a Nobel prize-winning discovery, they have become more accessible in fields such as engineering.

 

 

In Nanotech lubricants, submicron fullerene-like particles IF-WS2 are the functional ingredient. These particles in the dry state are one of the most lubricating chemical compounds known to science.

Explaining the functionality of particles

IF-WS2 are tungsten particles that consist of dozens  of layers. Under the action of pressure and shear, one or more layers are peeled off, which are attached to the sliding surface. This creates a highly resistant nano coating that protects sliding surfaces against wear, damage and reduces friction.

Mechanism of particles used as a lubricant

These photographs of IF-WS2 particles from an electron microscope show the peeling of individual layers, which form a multilayer protective tribofilm on the metal surface

They can withstand extreme pressures

Due to there spherical shape and hollow core, IF-WS2 particles can provide high flexibility that withstands extreme dynamic and static loads.

They prevent the formation of micro cracks and erosion of contact surfaces.

Rolling effect

The particles have a hollow core and behave like nanosphere bearings. They show an unrivalled reduction in friction.

HOW WE ACHIEVE IT

In Nanotech lubricants, submicron particles similar to fullerenes IF-WS2 are the functional component (the Nobel Prize was awarded for the discovery of fullerenes).

 

IF-WS2 particles in the dry state are one of the most lubricating chemical compounds known to science.

 

It is used in top technologies such as NASA, military technology and aviation, but also in engineering, motorists and on all continents of the world since 2008.

 

The technology is protected by 110 worldwide patents.

Health and environment

IF-WS2 particles have a closed structure, are non-toxic and not harmful to human health.

 

Products with IF-WS2 particles are registered in accordance with the chemical policy of the European Union REACH.

 

Products with IF-WS2 particles have RoHS certification - restriction of the use of certain hazardous substances based on Directive 2011/65/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council.
