We are always happy to independently test our products with both bearing users and manufactures.

NanoMaterials Ltd., the innovative nano lubricants company and a subsidiary of the leading American company: “Nanotech Industrial Solutions, Inc.” (NIS), continues to cooperate with bearing manufacturers to find new ways to improve the performance of various bearing applications.

The purpose of an independent case study conducted by a leading European Bearings manufacturer was to measure the impact of Nanolub® EP Grease Additive on durability of Bearing type HJ 208. The tests were conducted on bearing type HJ 208, lubricated with Liton EP2 neat grease vs. same Liton EP 2 grease formulated with Nanolub® GH-X EP Grease Additive (4% treat rate). Both tests were conducted on 20 samples of HJ 208 bearings for each test and under the same test conditions.

Nanolub® GH-X EP Grease Additive was shown to have a positive impact on bearing durability, with a 48.5% increase in bearing service life. The full case study can be downloaded here or sent out by request from NanoMaterials marketing department.

“These superb results, serve as another proof of the effectiveness of our grease additive product range in bearing applications,” said Larissa Drangai, NanoMaterials’ QC Manager. “We are always happy to independently test our products with both bearing users and manufactures.”

About NanoLub® Lubricant Additive Series:
The NanoLub® series has received the prestigious Nano 50TM Award by Nanotech Briefs (publishers of NASA Tech Briefs) and it is the first successful commercial implementation of inorganic, multi-layered fullerene-shaped nanoparticles in Extreme Pressure (EP) lubricants, based on patented and award-winning technology developed at the Weizmann Institute of Science.

NanoLub® operates a dual-effect mechanism: multi-layer tungsten disulfide nanospheres reduce friction and heating, thereby reducing mechanical wear. Extreme pressure conditions causes nanospheres to create a tribofilm layer that attach to surface crevices and re-smoothens them, thereby extending mechanical efficiency and apparatus life.

Tests have shown that incorporating NanoMaterials’ inorganic, lubricant additives into oil and grease formulations delivers a range of performance enhancements including:

  •         Significant friction reduction
  •         Reduced wear of contacting surfaces
  •         Reconditioning of existing wear damage
  •         Enhanced energy and fuel efficiency
  •         Reduced operating temperature

These translate to significant cost and performance benefits such as lower energy consumption, extended effective operation of mechanisms, extended lubricant life, extended machinery life, and reduced emissions.
