Traditional lubricants have evolved greatly since the use of hybrid composite materials. Tribological properties modification depends on size, physical structure, and interactions of the nanophase. Specific applications might make use of additional additives that ensure specific dispersion distributions of the solid particles.
Ionic liquids offer a special case for efficient synthetic metal lubricants. Due to their low volatility, non-flammability, high thermal stability, and the ability to be modified with anionic and cationic sites, they are valuable for special applications. ILs can also be incorporated into grease oil and other base oils to increase their performance and tribological properties. Traditional ILs contained several fluorous anions that could not meet safety and environmental requirements. This led to the development of halogen-free ILs that are classified as green.
Our lubricant technologies come from meticulous research and developments that allow our customers to focus on their operational objectives instead of downtime, quality rejects, and tooling issues.
