Applied Nanomaterials launches lubricant

June 12, 2002 — Applied Nanomaterials said it has launched a nanoparticle-based lubricant to improve the performance of machines in multiple applications.

NanoLub particles have a structure of nested spheres that lubricate by rolling like miniature ball bearings. Scientists at Nanomaterials Synthesis Group at Weizmann Institute of Science in Israel discovered the technology, and Applied NanoMaterials licensed it from the institute’s commercial arm.

The lubricant reduces friction between moving parts, minimizes wear and saves maintenance costs. It can be used as a solid lubricant or an additive to other lubricants used in systems for aerospace, medicine and manufacturing plants, according to a news release.
