Thermo-Activated Lubricant Additives for Improving Engine Efficiency and Fuel Economy
Controlled Release Friction Reduction over Time Invention Summary: Friction modifiers (FMs) have been extensively studied as lubricant additives that could improve lubricity of base oil friction profiles to enhance fuel economy by the petrochemical and automobile industries. There are two classes of FMs, the ash FM (organo-molybdenum molecules) and...
