    Abstract: An enhanced lubricant formulation is provided as a formulation that improves upon existing lubricant systems by enhancing the tribological properties. The formulation utilizes inorganic fullerene-like tungsten disulfide (IF-WS2) nanoparticles combined with an existing lubricant to reduce friction and recondition the interfacing surfaces of moving parts. The IF-WS2 nanoparticles are uniform symmetrical and spherical structure that provides a rolling effect between two interfacing surfaces. The IF-WS2 nanoparticles additionally exfoliate portions of their lamellar exterior as a tribological film that reduces the surface roughness on interfacing surfaces resulting in a decrease in friction. The formulation reduces the requirement for frequent replacement of the lubricant and additionally provides improved performance under conditions of extreme temperature and pressure.

  • Publication number: 20130225460
    Abstract: This invention provides a method for improving the physico-chemical and usage properties of an existing lubricant, of a solid or liquid consistency, such as gear oils, engine oils and all-purpose oils. The method is based on complementing the composition of the existing lubricant with a mixture of several solid substances (thickeners), in an amount varying from 5 to 35 weight percent of the initial existing lubricant. As a result of their addition, a considerable improvement in a number of the lubricant's properties is achieved. For example, an increase in saturation load, as measured on a 4-ball apparatus of 1600 N to 3150 N; improved friction coefficient ?, the wear scar under 600 N load, and more. Using the method specified in the invention, it is possible to make significant improvements to the quality of a lubricant at relatively low cost.

  • Publication number: 20120135897
    Abstract: The invention relates to a lubricant in the form of grease or thick lubricating gel or transmission oil, as well as motor or universal oils with a myriad of applications. As a result of its contents presented in the patent application is characteristic of low coefficient of friction ranging from 0.055 to 0.062. As the main component, the contents of the discussed lubricant includes three or four stearates of metals or hydroxistearates of metals, which interact and cause a noticeable reduction of friction drag on the lubricated surfaces. Additionally, these substances may include a number of other solid or liquid elements, which maintain low friction drags and, furthermore, improve the lubricant through increasing its load capacity, antirust characteristics, shear strength, etc.

  • Patent number: 8080500
    Abstract: This invention relates to lubricating oil additives, and to lubricating oil compositions, their method of preparation, and use. More specifically, this invention relates to several novel lubricating oil additives and compositions which contain a tungsten compound and an antioxidant, namely aminic antioxidants such as a secondary diarylamine or an alkylated phenothiazine. The use of the tungsten compound with the secondary diarylamine and/or the alkylated phenothiazine provides improved oxidation and deposit control to lubricating oil compositions. The lubricating oil compositions of this invention are particularly useful as crankcase and transmission lubricants, gear oils and other high performance lubricant applications.
