Frequently Asked Questions FAQ,s
When was this nanomaterial discovered?
2004, but it was not identified as Diamond Hard Carbon™ until 2005 under testing at UoI Chicago and the Advanced Superfilm and Diamond Lab in Japan.
What makes Diamond Hard Carbon™ (DHC™) different from other forms of Diamond or carbon?
Our DHC™ particles are the only smooth surfaced Diamond in the world and for many years the experts at Argonne National labs refused to believe it was possible until the started testing it in 2010. All other nanodiamond before this, created by any other methods have sharp protruding edges, ours do not. Another difference is size, ours measuring the smallest on record at .1 to 4nm and having the lowest Coefficient of Friction at COF .0008 as tested by the Co Space Co Bearing Company of Japan.
Should DiamondLube™ be added to a new engine?
NO. Add only after 7,000 or more miles are on the engine. To be sure check with the dealer as some engines have pre-seated rings. The rings must first be seated to wear off the sharp edges on the rings, or pressure, blow-by and loss of power will occur. Once the ring surface has flattened it is safe to add DiamondLube™.
What engine will show the most improvement with DiamondLube™?
High mileage engines gain the most with DiamondLube™, such as auto engines with 150,000 or more miles and Semi Engines with 250,000 + miles. These high mileage engines also react the quickest and worn contact surface high spots coat quickly, resulting in rapid reduction of noise and vibration.
What else can DiamondLube™ be used on.
Any friction area such as Automatic or Manual transmissions, gear boxes, hydraulics, wheel bearings, Fifth wheel plates, any sliding contact surface (i.e. suspension components) etc.
What is the secret ingredient in DiamondLube™?
DiamondLube™ contains a novel new form of Spherical Nanocarbon that is as hard or harder than Diamond that we call Diamond Hard Carbon™, or DHC™. The particles are the very first Diamond Hard Carbon™ nanomaterial to be spherical and are completely different than C60 which are commonly known as Bucky Balls. DHC™ are solid, un-crushable balls of carbon averaging from .1-4nm and Bucky Balls are hollow shelled spheres that collapse under pressure.
How does this Diamond Hard Carbon™ attach and protect the friction surfaces?
Our material, which is extremely smooth and slippery on 100% of its surface relies on friction alone to be driven into the surface. The pressure of such a small particle being pressed into metal creates extreme thermal energy which permanently bonds the carbon sphere to metal. the reaction is similar to that of an asteroid impact except the diamond ball does not explode, but cements to the friction surface. As time progresses, trillions of trillions of particles per square millimeter attach to both friction surfaces, and eventually all contact surfaces are covered in extremely slippery, half exposed beads that glide across a similar friction surface which cannot abrade each other as there on no sharp edges - only smooth, slippery contact is possible.
Is oil life extended after treatment?
YES. Usable oil life is extended from Two to Four times. Diamond coated surfaces run cooler 1. due to faster thermal transfer and lower thermal buildup when friction is reduced. Overall engine temperature drops which directly lowers the oil temperature and eliminates the cracking of oil molecule bonds which occur at high temperature. Also the oil stays cleaner due to 2. an increase in compression which allows for a cleaner burning of the fuel, 3. reduced particle blow-by from a better sealed set of rings and 4. due to prohibited metal on metal contact the oil does not fill up with metal particles as proven with Oil Analysis.
How is it possible to increase the compression of an old engine?
Once the particle film has been thoroughly applied, lessons from gemology explain this ability. The inventor is also a gemologist and one must look to known diamond properties and mining for the answer. Everyone with a diamond knows that oil sticks to like glue to the surface, requiring constant cleaning to keep it bright and sparkly. In mining, hot grease traps capture rough diamond crystals as the ore is washed over them, consequently the long chain oil molecules are strongly attracted to the infinite number of exposed Diamond Hard Carbon™ spheres . Before treatment the oil molecule would roll like logs between the friction surfaces and the oil is easily scraped away as metal contacts metal, but after treatment the oil molecules are forced to stand parallel to each other pointing away from the surface. These strands of oil are tightly attached at the base by the attractive power diamond has to the oil molecule. Picture a woman with long flowing hair that is close to her head and flows across her shoulder, but as soon as she places her hand on a Van DE Graff static electricity generator her hair extends outward from her head making a big fuzzy ball of nearly parallel strands of hair. Due to the sheer number of oil/DHC interfaces on the surface, the oil molecules are held parallel and perpendicular to the surface, (they can no longer just lay down)intermingling with opposing oil molecules from the other surface, increasing compression as not possible with oil alone.
Can DiamondLube™ be added to airplanes or helicopters?
YES. The FAA informed us that our product is not restricted for preventative maintenance use in aviation and has already been installed in various airplanes, and a helicopter in Alaska with exceptional results.
Can DiamondLube™ be applied to marine propellers to reduce or eliminate cavitation, or pitting?
YES. Rubbing the nanomaterial into the surface provides a quick and cheap treatment. Friction drives the nanomaterial into the surface material, creating an extremely slippery surface so water or even air can easily slide over. This removes the conditions that cause cavitation. We can also electroplate this novel nanomaterial onto the surface which produces exceptional hardness and superlubricity.
Can DiamondLube™ reduce one of the greatest causes of mechanical failure – Vibration.
YES. AzimaDLI, a world renowned Vibration Analysis Specialist tested the effects of DiamondLube™ on vibration within a 7500 HP diesel engine, pump and gearbox and vibration reduction was proven. Vibration immediately decreased upon its addition to all treated areas of the system and continued to decrease over time. While the original vibration did not return, areas not treated were still vibrating. The result was a 30 year old system had become more efficient, smoother and reliable than when it was new.
What happens when DiamondLube™ is added to the high speed gearbox of a 400 megawatt or ANY sized windmill?
Many things happen, and they are all good for the environment. The $2 Million gearboxes that normally last a couple years will last for 10 to 20 years, saving $20 to $40 Million in replacement cost alone. Less service increases SAFETY and a cooler windmill generator translates into higher power output. Heat is a known parasitic loss in any system, and the less power lost in the production of heat overall efficiency of any system increases.
Can anything else can be treated with DiamondLube™ on a windmill?
YES. All bearing from roller, ball and slip style will benefit. A 40KW windmill in Ireland had two worn four foot diameter propeller shaft bearings that could be heard howling from 1500 feet away. Within minutes of treatment virtually all noise vanished and the bearings no longer required replacement.
Does DiamondLube™ REBUILD worn out metal?
Nothing can effectively do that. We are dealing with a particle thick coating that is extremely thin (about .5nm) and virtually impenetrable once applied. What happens is the CONDITIONS that resulted in wear, vibration, power loss and thermal buildup are altered, and the treated friction surfaces now slide effortlessly past each other with much less friction. This condition causes the problems to appear to be reversed, but it is actually a lowering of friction and NOT reversal of wear. Once applied, wear cannot occur as the friction surfaces are now both coated with Diamond Hard Carbon. Now that metal on metal contact is no longer possible, heat from that contact in severely reduced, noise and vibration are quieted, and overall efficiency is increased. Because there are now mated Diamond Hard Carbon surfaces, wear of the protected underlying structure is not possible and the surfaces simply slide effortlessly.
