"NanoMaterials Ltd." (Apnano), a cleantech company operating in the field of Nanotechnology, was established in 2002 and after its acquisition in 2013 became a part of the leading American "Nanotech Industrial Solutions, Inc." group (NIS). NanoMaterials was the first company to succeed in the commercial production of inorganic, multi-layered nanofullerenes and nanotubes, based on exclusively patented platform technology developed at the Weizmann Institute of Science. The composition and morphology of these materials create a unique mechanism of friction-induced tribofilm release. The exfoliated nanoparticles attach to working-surfaces, fill in wear crevices and coat working surfaces with a continuous super-lubrication layer. This "surface reconditioning" effect was instrumental in the successful development of NanoMatrial's award winning NanoLub® family of Extreme Pressure (EP) Anti-Wear (AW) and Anti-Friction (AF) lubrication additives.
