Recovery Act - Scale-up of Production of Active Nanoparticles-Based Novel Lubricant Additives to Improve Energy Efficiency and Durability
Lubricant additives are important for reducing friction and wear in virtually all machinery; additives are components of petroleum and synthetic based lubricants and oils. Among other potentially useful lubricant additives, Nanomech developed a molybdenum sulfide particle based additive that is particularly useful for a number of aerospace and manufacturing applications, and Nanomech successfully demonstrated a manufacturing method to produce significant quantities of the lubricant materials to meet potential commercial demand of the new lubricant additive products. The US military has a significant interest in the availability of the new lubricant additives for a number of applications.
