Graphene-Fortified Low Friction Coating

Applied Nano Surfaces presents Tricolit, its range of graphene-fortified low friction coatings serving to reduce wear. Tricolit is ideal for improving tribological properties of various parts (e.g. guide bars, rails, slideways), and it is also suitable for servicing of parts which have already been in use. Tricolit has been developed within the strategic innovation program supporting the industrial graphene development in Sweden, SIO Grafen.

Characterised by water-based formulations

Tricolit coatings can be applied by spraying, dipping or brushing and are suitable for treatment of non-ferrous materials which cannot be triboconditioned. It cures film thickness from 5 to 100 um, and it works both in dry and lubricated contacts. It is characterised by water-based formulations, which means it has zero VOC emissions. Tricolit is applied to the surface like a regular paint and heat-cured afterwards. The resulting coating comprises a balanced set of friction modifiers, such as WS2, BN, PTFE, and graphite, embedded in a cross-linked organic polymer matrix.
