4. TRIBOLOGY PROBLEMS AND REDUCTION OF RESISTANCE WITH THE USE OF GRAPHENE SUBSTANCES, GRAPHENE NANOFLUIDS AND GRAPHENE PASTES

Currently, Graphene Institute is actively engaged in research and development of various graphene coatings to reduce friction between solids at nano, micro and macro scales. Here the company is actively using biomimetics, i.e. natural technologies of flora and fauna.

In addition, our company carries out research to reduce resistance between solid surfaces and various working fluids (oils, water and aqueous solutions, various types of oil, etc.).
