DESILUBE TECHNOLOGY DEVELOPS HIGH TEMPERATURE FORMULATION OF GRAPHITE

DESILUBE TECHNOLOGY DEVELOPS HIGH TEMPERATURE FORMULATION OF GRAPHITE
 LANSDALE, Pa., Nov. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Desilube Technology, Inc. has discovered a new formulation of graphite which increases the serviceable temperature by about 200 degrees Celsius over conventional marketplace graphite.
 The company is seeking collaborators for the development of end-use applications.
 The new product, called "DESILUBE 121," was developed as a lubricant to perform over a wide temperature range. Additional applications at high temperatures are likely, including use as the material of construction for seals, gaskets, linings, brakes, heat exchangers, molds, coatings and other industrial mechanical parts.
 DESILUBE 121, a patented composition, can be used under thermal conditions up to 870 degrees Celsius (1,600 degrees Fahrenheit) in air and more than 1,000 degrees Celsius in vacuum, inert gas, or reducing atmospheres. While pure graphite begins to oxidize below 700 degrees Celsius and loses 100 percent of its mass by 850 degrees Celsius during thermal analysis (TGA), DESILUBE 121 still retains 75 percent of its mass at 1,000 degrees Celsius in air.
 In a related matter, Desilube has also demonstrated the ability to increase the operating temperature range of molybdenum disulfide, a widely used lubricant, by over 200 degrees Celsius.
 DESILUBE 121 is a spin-off of high temperature lubricant work performed for Aero Propulsion and Power Directorate, Wright Laboratory, Air Force System Command, Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, under a Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II grant.
 Desilube Technology, Inc. is a privately owned, minority-held, small business, focused on both R&D and production of lubricants, lubricant additives, cleaners, and other chemical specialties. The company's products include environmentally friendly lubricant additives for metalworking and food industry machinery, high temperature lubricants, industrial cleaners and non-methylene chloride paint removers.
