There is a long tradition of applying nanodiamonds into mineral or synthetic based oils, greases and other lubricants to improve the performance:
- Durability of components is improved
- Friction is reduced
- Load bearing capacity is increased
- Temperatures are decreased
Carbodeon does not currently supply any nanodiamond containing lubricants, but our nanodiamond materials are used by third parties to create their own lubricants and lubricant additives.
Oil-Less and Water-Lubrication
A newer development in nanodiamond lubrication is that of oil-less lubrication and water-based lubrication. Studies have shown that the application of a nanodiamond dispersion to a surface will improve its tribological properties, whether the water is retained, or whether it is dried to leave a fine coating of diamond nanoparticles.
Suitable Carbodeon products for these applications are:
uDiamond® Hydrogen D(2nd Gen) (Aqueous, for oil-less or water lubrication)
uDiamond® Vox D (2nd Gen) (Aqueous & solvents, for oil-less or water lubrication)
uDiamond® Blend Nuevo (Nanodiamond - Graphite Mixture)
uDiamond® Molto (Nanodiamond powder)
