Maximize energy efficiency while minimizing environmental impact with GUP®-enhanced lubricants

Incorporating GUP® into lubricants offers remarkable advancements, particularly in energy efficiency and sustainability. Graphene, due to its unique structure and inherent properties, promotes a substantial reduction in friction. This translates to superior performance of machinery, boosting their overall operational efficiency. This superior lubrication capacity reduces energy consumption, substantially enhancing energy efficiency, a key aspect for businesses aiming to cut operational costs.

Moreover, GUP®‘s robust and durable nature ensures an extended lubricant lifespan, providing a sustainable solution for industries. It can withstand extreme conditions without degradation, curbing frequent replacements and, hence, significantly reducing the environmental impact. Additionally, the versatility of GUP® enables its compatibility with various lubricant compositions, making it an optimal choice for diverse industrial applications. This adaptability also aids in reducing production waste, underlining its sustainability potential.

In a world increasingly focused on sustainability and efficiency, GUP®-based lubricants are not just an innovation but a necessity, providing a game-changing solution for businesses aiming for responsible growth.

LUBEGUP® is an additive based on few-layers graphene GUP® specifically designed to provide superior properties to lubricants, minimally impacting the rheological properties of the host material and without a significant increase in viscosity.

LUBEGUP® is added to the lubricant formulation with standard mixers; we suggest any way to use high-speed mixers. The product should be stirred well before use. We suggest adding 0.5 – 4 wt% of LUBEGUP® to significantly improve the final formulation. The optimum dosage level should be determined with specific tests based on the required performance, host matrix characteristics, processing conditions, and the presence of other additives.

The compatibility between LUBEGUP® and all other formulation components should be tested separately before starting formulation development.

Main Advantages of Graphene GUP® Products for Lubricants

Reduced Friction

GUP®  with a smooth surface serves as an effective nano-additive in lubricants, substantially reducing friction between mechanical parts

Corrosion Prevention

GUP® forms a protective layer on metal surfaces, offering anti-corrosive properties

Better Performance in Extreme Conditions

GUP® retains its excellent lubricating properties under harsh conditions like extreme pressures, enhancing the reliability of machinery operating in such environments

 

 

Thermal Stability

exhibits a high tolerance for temperature variations, maintaining effectiveness even under severe thermal conditions and reducing the risk of overheating and thermal degradation

Sustainability

provides an eco-friendly alternative to traditional lubricant additives. By reducing energy consumption and prolonging the life of mechanical systems, GUP® contributse to sustainability efforts

 

Versatility

it can be used in all lubricant types, from oils to greases. It is proved to be equally well for the dry as well as a humid environment which is not in case of other commonly used solid lubricants.

 

Enhanced Tear and Wear Resistance

the exceptional strength of graphene can drastically reduce wear and tear resistance, thereby prolonging the lifespan of machinery and reducing maintenance costs

Oxidative Stability

enhances the oxidative stability of lubricants, thus improving their shelf-life

Environmental Friendly

most of the additives used in lubricants are inherently toxic and of non biodegradable nature. GUP® is a green lubricant as it contains carbon and oxygen instead of heavy metal elements

 

High Load Bearing Capacity

GUP® ‘s intrinsic strength translates to a high load bearing capacity when used as a lubricant additive, enabling machinery to handle heavier loads without significant wear and tear

Energy Efficiency

by reducing friction and wear, GUP® significantly enhances the energy efficiency of mechanical systems

Reduced OPEX

improved performance will reduce OPEX costs and extend equipment life
