Yavne, Israel (PRWEB) June 05, 2013
NanoMaterials, the innovative nano-lubricants company, together with PhibroChem, chemicals company will be promoting its NanoLub® GH anti-friction (AF)/ anti-wear (AW) range of greases and will be hosting a stall at the NLGI annual meeting, 15th-18th of June in Tuscon, Arizona. NanoMaterials will also be presenting knowledge and new developments in the solid lubricants field at the Annual Meeting. Based on break-through research developed at Weizmann Institute of Science, NanoMaterials’ NanoLub® GH series of nano-additives for greases is the first commercial implementation of inorganic tungsten disulfide, multi-layered fullerene-shaped nanoparticles in Extreme Pressure (EP) applications. NanoMaterials’ GH series of AF/AW greases is especially effective when under extreme pressure and can improve power, extend machinery life and reduce downtime.
NanoMaterials’ GH series operates on a dual-effect mechanism: multi-layer tungsten disulfide nanospheres reduce friction and heat, thereby reducing mechanical wear. Extreme pressure conditions causes nanospheres to create a tribofilm layer that attaches to surface crevices and re-smoothens them, thereby extending mechanical efficiency and apparatus life.
Tests have shown that incorporating NanoMaterials’ inorganic, lubricant additives into grease formulations delivers a range of performance enhancements including:
- Significant friction reduction
- Reduced wear of contacting surfaces
- Refurbishment of existing wear damage
- Reduced operating temperature
These translate to significant cost and performance benefits such as extended effective operation of mechanisms, extended lubricant life and extended machinery life.
“We are proud to be presenting at the NLGI and are thrilled to promote our GH range of greases with PhibroChem,” said Baruch Halpert Chairman and CEO of NanoMaterials: “Our GH series brings the forefront of nanotechnology to the grease industry. Together with PhibroChem we look forward to introducing our products and technology to the American market."
“We are very excited about the opportunity to work together with NanoMaterials to provide their GH product line to the Grease market,” said Mark Chamberlin, General Manager of PhibroChem: “This is an industry that is looking for advanced technologies to meet increasing demands in the market. NanoMaterials delivers the high performance product that will help our customers gain a real competitive advantage.”
About NanoMaterials Ltd.
NanoMaterials Ltd. (Apnano), cleantech company, is a pioneer of inorganic, multi-layered fullerenes. NanoMaterials was the first to succeed in the commercial production of inorganic, multi-layered nanofullerenes and nanotubes, based on platform technology developed at the Weizmann Institute of Science. The company’s WS2-based nanomaterials opened up new possibilities for developing extreme performance lubricants, coatings and polymer composites. These materials feature outstanding extreme temperature (ET) and extreme pressure (EP) properties. The composition and morphology of these materials create a unique mechanism of friction-induced tribofilm release. The exfoliated nanoparticles attach to working-surfaces, fill in wear crevices and coat working surfaces with a continuous super-lubrication layer. This "surface reconditioning" effect improves energy efficiency, extends effective operation, and extends machinery and lubricant life.
NanoMaterials has earned international recognition and won numerous innovation and excellence awards, including winning the prestigious Red Herring Top 100 Innovators award. The company's NanoLub® family of EP lubrication applications (oils, greases, solids) is gaining increasing recognition and growing demand particularly in the automotive and heavy equipment industries; other industries they are involved in include defense, mining and metalworking.
