Tribofilm Release Mechanism

  • About NanoMaterials

    “NanoMaterials Ltd.” (Apnano), a cleantech company operating in the field of Nanotechnology, was established in 2002 and after its acquisition in 2013 became a fully owned subsidiary of the leading American company “Nanotech Industrial Solutions, Inc.” (NIS).  NanoMaterials specializes in development and production of inorganic, multi-layered nanofullerenes and nanotubes, based on exclusively patented platform technology developed at the Weizmann Institute of Science. These tungsten disulfide (WS2)  based nanomaterials opened up new possibilities for developing extreme performance lubricants, coatings and polymer composites. 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 was instrumental in the successful development of NIS’s Corp, award winning NanoLub® family of Extreme Pressure (EP) Anti-Wear (AW) and Anti-Friction (AF) lubrication additives. The Company’s R&D department is involved in extensive research and testing for additional WS2 based applications in the field of lubricants, coatings and polymer composites for such industries as defense, mining and metalworking.
