LSI Chemical Introduces NanoClear504 Oil Additive

New refinery oil additive reduces wear by up to 43% in mineral, semi-synthetic and synthetic oils.

LSI Chemical has introduced NanoClear504, a new ready-to-use oil additive engineered for higher viscosity mineral, semi-synthetic or synthetic oils available to upgrade lubricating oils and greases. NanoClear504 is formulated with three patented chemicals: clear nano carbon particles, a Group V Ester and Group IV PAO to allow for higher thermal conductivity, wear resistance, load carrying capacity and absorption ability. Developed with proprietary nano-carbon technology, the nano particles form chain-like links that increase the molecular structure of the oil to form a thicker tribolayer. According to LSI, the submicron particle size and polarity allow particles to fill in asperities on machined surfaces for greatly reduced wear, shear and oxidation stability. The result is increased horsepower and fuel economy and long-lasting engine and component protection, the company says.

According to LSI Chemical, the synthetic, colorless nano carbon lubricant increased horsepower and fuel economy by 1% to 5% in third-party laboratory tests. A Shell Rotella baseline oil treated with NanoClear504 demonstrated a reduction in counterface wear by 43% compared to the baseline oil.

Todd Cawley, LSI Chemical president, says, “NanoClear504 is very similar to our prior introduced product NanoClear304, except it has a thicker viscosity making it ideal for industrial or agricultural grease product development. Our patented process for carbon nano technology cannot be duplicated by any other refinery additive company and allows for higher load carry capacity, higher absorbability, and increased film strength. Also, there are no precipitation issues that are often the case with nano particles.”
