TriboTEX Nanotechnology Reverses Engine Wear
February 20, 2017, Seattle – TriboTEX has launched a Kickstarter campaign to bring to the market their environmentally-friendly nanoparticle-based applicator which reverses engine wear and makes old cars last longer.
Average American Vehicle Age – 11.6 Years
An average age of vehicles on American roads is 11.6 years, and the segment of old vehicles is growing faster than any other categories. It leads to a number of problems including an increase in carbon dioxide emission due to engine’s excessive heating and low efficiency. One-third of the world energy output is lost due to friction. The majority of currently used lubricants are not efficient; they don’t last long and are not environmentally-friendly.
Reverse Engine Wear, Not Just Reduce Friction
TriboTEX has come up with a solution which not only reduces friction – it repairs the damage and reverses engine wear. The innovation is based on adding synthetic anisotropic nanoparticles to lubricating oils to create a self-forming thick protective coating for engine’s internal components.Nanoparticles are flat and have two functionally different sides: Sticky to attach to the surface and reinforce it, and slippery to reduce friction.
Their application results in
- 10 times reduction in friction
- Increased fuel efficiency and horsepower
- Lower maintenance costs
- Reduced engine noise and ultimately
- Increases the vehicle’s lifespan
