Fully Formulated Lubricants
NanoLub® ISO-220EP Industrial Gear Oil is a new generation fully formulated oil based on our proprietary nano-sized inorganic fullerene-like tungsten disulfide IF-WS2 particles engineered to provide outstanding load-bearing, anti-wear and ultra-low friction. NanoLub® ISO-220EP is a blend of solid IF-WS2 nanoparticles and other high-quality multifunctional lubricant additives dispersed in a premium grade mineral oil designed for heavy industrial enclosed gear systems. NanoLub® ISO-220EP can be used in other extreme gearing applications such as power plants, mining equipment, steel mills and cement plants replacing conventional gear lubricants.
NanoLub® is based on NIS’ unique patented technology using solid tungsten disulfide WS₂ multilayered nano fullerene-like particles. These unique multi-layer IF-WS₂ nano-spheres are well-known to show outstanding temperature (-270 °C to 450 °C), shock (5,076,000 PSI) and pressure (4,263,000 PSI) resistance and renders them to be versatile under extreme operating conditions including high and ultra-low temperatures, high pressure and high vacuum, high load, high rotating speed, high radiation and corrosion conditions.
Due to its size (120-280 nm) and morphology of IF-WS₂ nanoparticles, they easily fill the asperities and irregular surface of the metals providing excellent load bearing and anti-wear properties. Under high loads (>1 GPa), the layers peels from the spheres forming a thin protective monolayer of WS₂ on the surface of the metal thereby reducing friction and wear between the metals.
