TriboTEX Nanotechnology Reverses Engine Wear
Average American Vehicle Age – 11.6 Years
An average age of vehicles on American roads is 11.6 years, and the segment of old vehicles is growing faster than any other categories. It leads to a number of problems including an increase in carbon dioxide emission due to engine’s excessive heating and low efficiency. One-third of the world energy output is lost due to friction. The majority of currently used lubricants are not efficient; they don’t last long and are not environmentally-friendly.
Reverse Engine Wear, Not Just Reduce Friction
TriboTEX has come up with a solution which not only reduces friction – it repairs the damage and reverses engine wear. The innovation is based on adding synthetic anisotropic nanoparticles to lubricating oils to create a self-forming thick protective coating for engine’s internal components.
- 10 times reduction in friction
- Increased fuel efficiency and horsepower
- Lower maintenance costs
- Reduced engine noise and ultimately
- Increases the vehicle’s lifespan
TriboTEX, the technology behind the company that was founded in 2010, has received more than a million dollars in research funding from the National Science Foundation, NASA, U.S. Department of Energy, Hydropower Research Foundation, and won a number of prestigious science competitions.
“We’ve designed TriboTEX as a clean energy solution to help fight pollution while saving money on machinery repairs and replacement. Our technology is applicable to industrial equipment such as wind turbines as well as to the consumer market,” said the company’s CTO Dr. Pavlo Rudenko, Ph.D.
TriboTEX will be available for sale this summer at $99. The Kickstarter backers have a unique opportunity to get it early (as soon as in March of 2017) for only $50. The application is fast and easy. It starts working on repairing the vehicle’s engine right away and lasts for 40,000 miles.
