Knowledge About Dry Lubricant And Oil Additives Suppliers


  • Rust is a chemical reaction when a metal material is oxidized due to long-term contact with oxygen in the air or is corroded by oxygen in the water to form an oxide. Certain minority metals, such as Al (aluminium), can slowly oxidize at room temperature to form a dense oxide film, which prevents further oxidation inside the metal and indirectly prevents rust. Al (aluminium) is more reactive than iron and easier to oxidize, but we rarely notice its rust because of this. The disadvantage of metal rusting is that the rust component is iron oxide, which is unstable. When welding iron alloys, iron alloys with oxides are not strong. For example, oxides are in the welding joints of bridge steel bars, which can easily cause fractures. Scaffolding in construction is made up of steel pipes connected. Rusty steel pipes will cause the pipe walls to become thinner and the hardness of the steel pipes to decrease. Such steel pipes can easily cause great safety hazards when used and also cause a waste of resources. So, we need to rust-proof the metal surface. The problem of rust prevention on metal surfaces has always been a global problem. Our country's national economic losses caused by metal corrosion account for 1%-4% of the national economy yearly, far exceeding the losses caused by geological and other disasters. Therefore, anti-rust treatment of metal surfaces is of great significance.


    Covering the metal surface with a dense protective layer is a common and important method to prevent metal products from rusting.

    1) Choose different protective layers according to the composition of the metal. 1: If it is an iron product, coat the surface with engine oil, Vaseline, paint or cover it with enamel, plastic and other corrosion-resistant non-metallic materials; 2: Use electroplating, hot plating or other methods to coat the surface of the steel with a layer that is not easily Corrosive metals such as zinc, tin, chromium, nickel, etc. These metal surfaces can form a dense oxide film to prevent iron products from rusting due to contact with water, air and other substances. Traditional metal surface treatment is mainly electroplating. However, its negative impacts, such as high energy consumption and high pollution, are also increasing.

    2) Use electrochemical methods to form a dense and stable oxide film on the surface of iron products to prevent iron products from rusting. For example, a fine black ferrous oxide film is formed on the surface of machine parts and other steel parts. 1: Electrochemical protection method. Use the principle of galvanic cells to protect metals and eliminate galvanic cell reactions that cause galvanic corrosion. Electrochemical protection methods are divided into anode protection and cathodic protection. The most widely used method is cathodic protection. 2: Treat corrosive media. Eliminate corrosive media, such as frequently wiping metal equipment, placing desiccants in precision instruments, and adding a small amount of rust inhibitors that can reduce the corrosion rate to the corrosive media. The anti-rust processes on the steel surface include oxidation (blue or black), phosphating, and passivation. Oxidation (blue or black) is to put steel parts into a solution containing caustic soda, sodium nitrate or sodium nitrite to form a thin black oxide film on the surface of the parts; Phosphating is to put steel parts into Soak in phosphate solution to form a water-insoluble phosphate film on the metal surface; passivation is to put the metal into nitrite, nitrate, chromate, or dichromate solution to make the metal surface There are different options to form a passivation film according to specific anti-rust requirements.


    3) Keeping the surface of iron products clean and dry is also a good way to prevent iron products from rusting. Manufacture various corrosion-resistant alloys, such as adding chromium, nickel, etc., to ordinary steel to make stainless steel.

    In life. If some of the metal products we usually use are rusty, the simple choice is to remove the rust by grinding and then painting. If the product is used at room temperature and in industrial applications with general anti-rust requirements, you should choose pickling to remove the rust and then phosphating. Paint coating. Dilute sulfuric acid is generally used for pickling. If the rust is heavy, add some hydrochloric acid. The hydrochloric acid should be used cautiously to avoid causing new corrosion. For short-term rust prevention during storage, you can integrate rust removal and phosphating, wash and dry, and then apply anti-rust oil. You should choose a blackening treatment if it is a rust-proof product used at high temperatures.

    This is a general overview of the anti-rust treatment methods for metal surfaces. There are huge professional disciplines and fields for each process. Specific details should be found in their professional manuals.

  • PTFE tape is a type of tape used by plumbers, handymen, electricians and homeowners to help prevent pipe leakage. It is a thin and stretchy tape that you wrap around the male threads of pipes before screwing them to their female counterparts. The PTFE clings to itself and the pipe, creating a seal. Depending on the job you need the tape for, you can find different types that work for different purposes. For instance, there is a plumbers tape that is colored yellow and rated for gas pipe connections. There is also skived PTFE tape that has high elongation and can conform to sharp bends.

    There are two main kinds of teflon coated tape: pure PTFE tape and fiberglass tape with a PTFE coating. There are also some differences in the way they are manufactured, as these two different production techniques give the tapes different mechanical properties.

    The main function of the teflon coating on the tape is that it is resistant to chemical and high temperature resistance. It can work under a wide range of temperatures from low ones (-196°C) to high ones (300°C). This makes it a good choice for many different projects, especially those with harsh chemicals.

    The teflon coating also makes the tape waterproof, making it useful for plumbing repair jobs in a variety of conditions. You can use it on your kitchen or bathroom pipes to keep water leaks at bay. You can even use it in your car to seal the fuel pipes.

  • molybdenum dithiocarbamate is a friction-reducing additive containing both inorganic and organic components. It consists of a bridged or mono-nuclear molybdenum core with dithiocarbamic acid and contains several alkyl groups. It has been reported that it acts as a catalyst in the formation of low-friction MoS2 (tribofilm) on rubbed surfaces. A tribometer equipped with Raman spectroscopy was used to monitor changes in the chemical composition of the tribofilm, and to examine the effects of shear stress and temperature on the MoS2 film formation.

    A novel molybdenum dialkyldithiocarbamate, prepared from asymmetric dialkylamines, has been synthesized and found to be more effective in reducing friction than a known symmetrical compound of this type, molybdenum dialkyldithiophosphate. The compound is soluble in petroleum slack oil, and lubricating compositions containing the molybdenum dialkyldithiocarbamate exhibit good friction reduction and tribological performance.

    Lubricating compositions based on the novel molybdenum dialkyldithiocarbamate may be formulated with zinc salts to provide antiwear and extreme pressure protection. Preferred zinc salts include the dibutyl hydrogen phosphite and triphenyl monothiophosphate, as well as the thiocarbamate ester formed by reacting dibutyl amine, carbon disulfide and the methyl ester of acrylic acid.

    The friction and wear behavior of two important additives for boundary lubrication, ZnDDP and Molybdenum dialkyldithiocarbamate (MoDTC), were examined in reciprocating sliding contact with ball-on-reciprocating plate test equipment, in squalane of a pure hydrocarbon oil. Tribofilms were monitored by Raman spectroscopy, and the chemical structure of the tribofilms was characterized by Energy Dispersive X-Ray analysis and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy.

  • teflon is made of a synthetic polymer called polytetrafluoroethylene, or PTFE. It's a class of plastics known as fluoropolymers and it has many useful properties, making it very popular in scores of applications. You can find it in coatings on nonstick cookware, for example. It's also used in electronics, plumbing, and even as membranes in outdoor jackets.

    PTFE has special chemical properties because it contains both carbon and fluorine atoms. Because the carbon atoms have more energy, they can form chemical bonds with other materials. However, the fluorine atoms are much larger than the carbon atoms, so they "hide" the carbon atoms from other molecules and reduce the chances of a chemical reaction.

    Another reason PTFE is chemically inert is because it has a negative electrical charge, which means that it doesn't attract or repel charged particles. This also gives PTFE its nonreactive and water-resistant properties.

    The problem with PTFE is that it can break down under high heat. When a PTFE-coated pan is heated to more than about 570 degrees Fahrenheit (300 degrees Celsius), the PTFE coating starts to degrade and releases toxic fumes into the air. This can lead to a medical condition called polymer fume fever.

    The long-term effects of PFOAs are unknown, but there is enough concern to cause a few companies that still make Teflon to phase out the chemical by 2020. PFOAs are long-lived chemicals that build up in animal tissues, and they can stay in the body for years after exposure.

  • Most hot rodders and classic car owners spend a lot of time and money to maintain their ride. They want to make sure it runs like the day they drove it off the dealer's lot, and that their investment is well-protected. That's why they choose motor oil with zinc for older cars.

    motor oil with zinc for older cars contains higher concentrations of ZDDP or ZDTP (Zinc Dialkyl Dithiophosphates) than standard motor oils. These additives bond to metal parts of the engine, creating an anti-wear coating that prevents them from rubbing together. They are commonly used in older engines with flat tappet camshafts, which generate a lot of friction.

    Zinc can also be found in other types of additives, such as boron and molybdenum, which are often added to conventional motor oil to improve its lubrication qualities. These ingredients are called "zinc-based additives," but many people who use the term simply refer to the compound known as zinc dialkyl dithiophosphates, or ZDDP, which is an excellent lubricant.

    In recent years, however, the EPA and OEM engine manufacturers have directed companies to reduce the amount of ZDDP in their products. This is because the compound can interfere with catalytic converters and cause them to wear down more quickly than they otherwise would. As a result, the high-zinc additives that were common in older engines have disappeared from most standard motor oil formulations. However, there are a few companies that still produce oil with the high levels of ZDDP needed by classic car enthusiasts.

  • Friction modifier is a special additive that helps to reduce friction between metal surfaces in the engine and other moving parts of the machine. The main function of this type of additive is to create a cushion between surfaces that would otherwise rub together and wear each other out, thus minimising frictional losses and increasing energy efficiency.

    Traditionally, this was accomplished by lowering lubricant viscosity to minimize hydrodynamic shear and churning losses but now a growing concern about climate change has led to a resurgence of interest in friction modifier additives (OFMs). Each OFM molecule consists of 2 parts, a polar head which adheres to polar surface metals and an oil soluble tail which extends out into the lubricating oil. The tails of each molecule overlap each other and are held in place by the lateral van der Waals force, creating an organic monolayer which acts like a buffer between rubbing surfaces.

    OFMs are classified as mild anti-wear additives which minimise light surface contact and are primarily used in engine oils and transmission fluids. When heavier loads are present and more than just boundary lubrication is needed, then stronger anti-wear additives such as Zinc dialkyldithiophosphate (ZDDP) are employed.

    When mixed into a lubricant, the OFM molecules circulate around the components in the engine and coat them with an invisible layer of Molybdenum disulfide which acts as a soft, slick barrier to prevent contact between surfaces. This reduced friction results in less heat being generated which, in turn, decreases the rate of oxidation of the lubricant and extends its life. Less heat also reduces the stress on the metal components which could potentially cause cracking and abrasions.

  • Chemours makes Teflon and other fluoropolymers. Its PTFE, ETFE, and PFA resins offer strong non-stick, corrosion resistance, easy cleaning, and low friction coefficients. They have oleophobic and hydrophobic properties, repelling liquids. This allows for easy manufacturing and maintenance with less downtime. It also prevents sticky materials and other contaminants from adhering to surfaces, allowing for easier machining.

    Several studies have linked some of these chemicals to health problems, especially when exposed over a long period of time or during critical life stages. For example, the chemical PFOA—used to make Teflon and other products—has been shown to cause kidney and testicular cancer in lab animals. And PFOS, another widely used chemical in the United States, has been shown to damage the livers of lab rats.

    The chemicals are being released into the environment around the plant owned by Chemours, a spin-off of DuPont, in Fayetteville, North Carolina. Known as the Cape Fear Works, it is the largest such facility in the country. The company says it followed state guidelines for releasing the chemicals and that GenX, which it is replacing PFOA with, is safer than the earlier chemical and no more toxic at the levels being released.

    PTFE is one of the most remarkable of all man-made polymers. It has many extraordinary properties that make it useful in a wide range of applications: it is chemically inert, non-stick, heat resistant, and electrically insulating. It is also exceptionally easy to clean, UV-resistant, and has high strength.

    These properties, along with its low coefficient of friction, make PTFE an ideal material for sealing and coating. It is used in hoses, expansion joints, and industrial pipe lines where it is necessary to withstand aggressive environments and chemical reactions. It is also found in bearings, bushing, gears, seals, and gaskets. It is also an ingredient in bicycle lubricants and greases. Medically, PTFE grafts are used to bypass stenotic arteries if autologous artery grafts cannot be obtained.

    It is also used in a variety of consumer products such as cookware, and is incorporated into fabrics to create a waterproof membrane known as Gore-TEX (a registered trademark of the W. L. Gore company). It is also used as a coating for flexible architectural materials, such as the roof of the Metrodome in Minneapolis. Its ability to diffuse a light nearly perfectly makes it an excellent choice for optical radiometry, including in illuminance meters and UV radiometers.

    PTFE is available in granular, fine powder and water-based dispersion forms. When these materials are combined with fillers and additives their chemical properties can be modified. For example, Glass increases compressive strength, carbon reduces permeability and is self-lubricating, Bronze improves resistance to wear and creep, and Stainless Steel enhances thermal and electrical conductivity.
