Lubricant Addictive

Market


Solid and liquid lubricants need anti-wear and anti-friction additives to prevent metal-to-metal contact between parts and avoid the overheating of gears or tools. This is very pertinent in automotive, marine, aerospace and defense industries for the most obvious reasons. Nonetheless, precise machining of metal parts is probably where a graphene-based liquid lubricant play an important role due.

Solution


Even in the presence of small amounts of graphene, lubricants containing this nanomaterial will provide low coefficient of friction and extremely good capacity to dissipate heat, which are both responsible for increasing the life of the metal craving and engraving tools and less-eccentricity of the final machined metal part.

Advantages of Graphene Application

Conductivity:

Graphene is a great conductor of electricity and heat due to its nanometric thickness allowing electrons and heat move up to 200x faster

Strength:

Graphene is 100+ stronger than steel. You can use it to reinforce polymers or fiberglass and carbon fibre.

Lightness:

Graphene is lightweight material and enables a new whole generation of high performance of lighter and stronger composites.

Transparency

As a two-dimensional material, graphene displays remarkable optical properties, including a simple transparency for visible light.

Thin

Graphene is an allotrope of carbon consisting of a small number of layers of carbon atoms arranged in an hexagonal lattice. Each layer is separated from another only by 0.33 nanometers.

Hydrophobicity

Graphene has excellent hydrophobicity capacity that can be used to tailoring special coatings in marine, aerospace, automotive markets.
