AR9100 Aerosol is based on Archoil’s patented Potassium Nanoborate lubrication technology which dramatically reduces operating friction, protecting equipment from wear, extending operating life, and reducing energy consumption.
Boron lubrication technology was initially developed at the Argonne National Laboratory for the US Dept. of Energy. Representing a ground breaking advance in lubrication technology, boron was demonstrated to greatly enhance lubricity and protection through the formation of a nearly frictionless solid boundary layer IN metal surfaces.
Since 1990, when Dr. Ali Erdemir discovered that boron was the one of the lowest coefficient of friction elements, tribologists have recognized the tremendous advancement boron lubricants represented. Years of research and practical experience in maritime environments, Archoil’s Potassium Nanoborate
formulation represents the latest generation in boron tribology and another huge leap forward in lubrication with its ability to reduce boron size down to the high efficient nano quantum effect level, and deliver it in a naturally occurring fatty acid ester matrix carrier.
AR9100’s proprietary ester carrier is specially formulated to facilitate the migration of the protective boron nanoparticles to surface metal. As AR9100 bonds chemically in the metal through a chelation process it will bring performance for a much longer period of time compared to conventional, mechanically sticking lubricants. Archoil AR9100 does not build up on metals, it bonds into the metal surface.
