Unique Additives

What is it that makes LE the leader in high performance specialsed lubricants. It is our dedication to using only the highest quality products available on the market regardless of their cost including base stocks coupled with range of specific and unique additives additives to produce a range of lubricants that out perform many of the world's well known lubricants.

Just a matter of good science with unique additives and the highest quality base stocks.

 

MONOLEC®

Increases oil film strength & reduces friction, heat & wear by separating moving metal components & minimizing metal-to-metal contact.
Should the oil’s film strength break down, MONOLEC® reacts chemically to form a protective, synthetic lubricant which increases the lubricant’s film strength.

What is MONOLEC®?

  • Lubrication Engineers’ exclusive ‘wear reducing’ agent
  • Mono-molecular liquid chemical synthetic lubricant
  • Name is derived from “mono-molecular” - how the molecules form a single layer on metal surfaces to protect against metal-to-metal contact

What does MONOLEC® do?

  • Reduces FRICTION, HEAT & WEAR (proven 24.2% reduction) in engines, pumps, bearings, transmissions
  • Less friction = less energy = cost savings
  • MONOLEC® is used in Lubrication Engineers greases, hydraulic oils, compressor & turbine oils, engine oils, industrial oils & other products

How does MONOLEC® work?

  • MONOLEC® molecules protect all metal surfaces with a single layer of “liquid ball bearings” which reduce friction, heat & wear
  • MONOLEC®reacts with any high temperature asperities allowing the abrasive “high points” to flow, rather than tear, thereby reducing friction, heat & wear
  • MONOLEC® increases oil film strength by up to 200% through particulate attraction

How does MONOLEC® perform?

  • MONOLEC® acts synergistically to improve performance qualities of other components in oils & greases - it enhances anti-wear agents in Lubrication Engineers lubricants
  • MONOLEC® reduces wear, lowers operating temperatures & greatly extends equipment life
  • MONOLEC® had no negative side effects - such as becoming corrosive, building up on itself or falling out of suspension
  • MONOLEC® out-performed all competitive products during the Bowden-Leben Test at Imperial College, London. It is a test used to measure the effect of temperature on the coefficient of friction of lubricant oils.
  • MONOLEC® wear-reducing additive took over in the test when all conventional chemical anti-wear additives broke down between 204°C - 232°C (350°F - 450°F). It continued to protect against wear to nearly 315°C (600°F) & probably much higher.

 

 

ALMASOL®

ALMASOL® ‘The Protective Edge’ reduces friction, heat & wear and resists chemical attack while withstanding high loads & temperatures to 1,038°C (1,900°F) It has been used on every manned US Space mission due to its incredible capabilities.

  • What is ALMASOL®?
  • Lubrication Engineers’ exclusive ‘wear reducing’ agent
  • Highly refined (1-2 microns) solid, dry-film lubricant derived from Aluminium, Magnesium & Silicate
  • ALMASOL® particles are so small that 8,000 would cover this full stop.
  • Soft tan powder with huge load carrying characteristics, resists acid attack & retains these up to 1,038°C

What does ALMASOL® do?

  • Reduces FRICTION, HEAT & WEAR in bearings, gearboxes, gears & chains

How does ALMASOL® work?

  • ALMASOL®particles attach to all metal surfaces in single, micro-scopic layers, thereby preventing destructive metal-to-metal contact
  • ALMASOL® layer acts like a “protective glove” around all moving parts, providing almasol-to-almasol contact, resistance to acid, less friction, heat & wear
  • ALMASOL® carries heavy loads of up to 400,000 psi providing complete protection against shock loads
  • ALMASOL® will not build on itself or affect machine tolerances

How does ALMASOL® perform?

  • Wear Reducing protection: In FZG Test LE607 Almasol® Gear Oil had 138 - 263% less wear than other commercial gear oils
  • EP Lubrication: In case of load increase / speed decrease
  • Reduces Friction & Energy: Provides smooth, low drag surface & reduces heat

 

DUOLEC®

Lubrication Engineers’ exclusive dual action additive that provides elasto-hydro-dynamic (EHD) antiwear (AW) film strength enhancement & boundary lubrication extreme pressure (EP) surface protection.

What is DUOLEC™?

  • DUOLEC™ is the newest Lubrication Engineers proprietary additive incorporating revolutionary technology designed specifically for use in Lubrication Engineers gear lubricants.
  • It is a temperature activated, dual acting, liquid additive that imparts special properties and synergies to the Lubrication Engineers Products in which it is used.

What does DUOLEC™ do?

  • DUOLEC™ increases lubricant film strength and protects metal surfaces outperforming at greater temperatures and loads.

How does DUOLEC™ work?

  • DUOLEC™ incorporates revolutionary new technology which is thermally activated to provide a dual layer of antiwear and extreme pressure protection that forms a solid-like protective layer on the metal surface.
  • This layer fills surface asperities, effectively smoothing the surface and minimizing the effects of any metal to metal contact thereby reducing friction and preventing welding and surface wear.
  • DUOLEC™ also greatly enhances the film strength of the oil to prevent rupture of the oil film, and thus minimize asperity contact and prolong the time before asperity contact occurs.
  • The technology in DUOLEC™ is designed to be thermally activated in stages. When the loads are increasing, the EHD and mixed film antiwear components of DUOLEC™ kick in.
  • After loads become even greater, then the boundary lubrication extreme pressure performance of DUOLEC™ is activated.

How does DUOLEC™ perform?

  • DUOLEC™ acts synergistically to improve performance qualities of other components in the lubricants.
  • DUOLEC™ reduces wear by reducing friction, improving oil film strength and providing surface protection when extreme pressures cause metal to metal contact.
  • DUOLEC™ is a liquid additive which does not build up or fall out of solution.
  • DUOLEC™ is designed especially for use in gear lubricants and under the conditions and loads typical to gear service.
