Our RC-X line brings the forefront of nanotechnology to the automotive and industrial oil sectors.
Yavne, Israel (PRWEB) April 25, 2013
NanoMaterials Ltd., nanotechnology lubricants company, will be attending the STLE Meeting and Exhibition and will present its innovative NanoLub® RC-X range of anti-friction (AF)/anti-wear (AW) lubricants on May 5-9, in Detroit. NanoMaterials’ NanoLub® series is the first successful commercial implementation of inorganic, multi-layered fullerene-shaped nanoparticles in Extreme Pressure (EP) lubricants. The additive series comes in three main forms of lubricant: oil-based, grease based and powder-based, depending on application. NanoLub® products have proven an outstanding capacity to improve engine performance and extend oil life under EP conditions.
NanoMaterials’ new NanoLub® RC-X range is based on patented and award-winning technology developed at Weizmann Institute of Science. NanoMaterials produces pioneering multi-layered fullerene-shaped inorganic WS2 nanoparticles. The innovative nanoparticles feature a unique continuous tribofilm release mechanism that helps repair wear damages by coating moving engine parts with lubricating layers.
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. NanoMaterials’ new RC-X line of oil additives is tailor made for different types of engines, specifically: private cars, motor-bikes, sports cars, trucks, heavy machinery.
“We’re proud to participate at the STLE Conference and are very much looking forward to promoting our new range of oil additives,” said Baruch Halpert, Chairman and CEO of NanoMaterials: “Our RC-X line brings the forefront of nanotechnology to the automotive and industrial oil sectors, advancing the day-to day running of engines. We are looking forward to networking and leveraging the expertise of other members of the conference in order to create new opportunities”.
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.
