- Applied Graphene Materials reports positive preliminary findings following independent performance testing on base oils enhanced using graphene produced by the group. The performance testing was undertaken by BfB Oil Research in Belgium.

Base oils are used in a wide range of industries including the manufacture of lubricating greases, motor oils and metal processing fluids.

BfB's initial results demonstrate that low loading levels of the group's graphene nanoplatelets, within base oils, reduce friction and the wear of metal surfaces. This opens up the route to further development for commercial applications in numerous high performance oils and greases.

Applied Graphene Materials will be sharing the findings of the BfB test programme with its tribology and lubrication industry partners and will also be engaging with other interested parties at the Global Tribology Oil and Lubrication (STLE) Exhibition in Dallas, Texas, between 17 May and 20 May.
