nGlide®

The nGlide® technology platform is the patented and patents-pending macromolecular innovation powered by NanoMech’s novel nano-inspired engineering.

It represents the next generation of advanced lubrication. The technology is manufactured at nano-scale and is assembled at molecular scale in our factory into the final commercial product stage.  It is a specially architected multi-component chemistry at sub-micron scale formulated into the TriboTuff® additive packages for greases and oils.

This nano-inspired breakthrough technology extends the life and performance of the hydrocarbon supply chain through dramatic reductions in friction where energy losses are staggering. This includes boundary lubrication, and extending durability of mechanical parts to provide sustainability. Through the nGlide® suite of additive lubrication packages, our proprietary nano-science brings together unique abilities of organic and inorganic macro-molecular lubrication chemistries for a range of advanced industrial applications for gas and oil, machining industries, transportation, aerospace, heavy duty military, farm and construction machines, and other critical sectors for both new and used equipment.

This addresses the global need to save energy and enhance durability and performance of components.

nGlide® chemistries reduce friction by orders of magnitude over traditional solid particles-based lubricants as well as liquid lubricant chemistries. This innovation goes beyond the scope of fullerene and similar nano-lubricants, outperforming all other lubricants so dramatically, that nGlide® renders them obsolete.

nGlide® is so effective in lowering the coefficient of friction that it borders on establishing frictionless lubrication scenarios.

The nGlide® formulations such as TriboTuff® have been commercially-proven and established in multiple industrial applications, and are further expanding for universal coverage. The nGlide® additive packages are produced with flexible chemistries that can be tailored to fit any end-user application requirements as a top treatment to pre-formulated or to base oils (mineral as well as synthetic) and grease products from multiple small and large vendors. nGlide® formulations such as TriboTuff® are smart drop-in solutions that fight friction and wear between mating components under boundary lubrication and the resulting delivery mechanisms protect the underlying surfaces from wear and tear due to such aggressive interactions of surfaces.

The nano-inspired macro-molecular additives enable them to enter tight tolerances between the asperities that when viewed on a microscopic-scale, appear as hills and valleys.

The nGlide® formulations and architectures at sub-micron scale demonstrate multi-functionality by lowering friction, reducing wear, enhancing extreme pressure (EP) properties, as well as reducing corrosion and other complementary properties. The mechanical components where formulations already bring dramatic performance increases include valves, gears, pin-joints, chains, MQL machining and many others. Machine parts of all types are under constant attack from the forces of friction.

The nGlide® additive delivered tribofilm is the last line of defense in the war of mechanical surfaces fighting severe friction!

These chemistries can also be applied in the form of coatings using NanoMech’s NanoSpray® technology.
