How it Works

Why diesel engines and turbine bearings will last longer

 

SMT2 is a molecular level tribological element that has an extremely high affinity toward pure iron (Fe) (See Figure 1). Basically, SMT2 is negatively polarized with respect to ferrous metal. Once the bond between SMT2 is achieved, the resulting covalent bond is inert. SMT2 affects ferrous metal at the molecular level, forming an electro-chemical covalent bond of loose, pure, ferrous iron (Fe) and SMT2 molecules that form a metal hydride boundary layer on the metal surface that smoothes asperities and flaws. The boundary layers formed by SMT2 have a lamellar molecular structure with “easy shear” characteristics that ensure extremely low levels of boundary friction between the surfaces.

 

SMT2 is formulated with a “know-how” Temperature, Pressure, and Friction (TPF) component that reacts to any combination of Temperature, Pressure, and Friction that takes place between moving surfaces (boundary friction and wear). When the temperature is altered up or down and/or the pressure or friction is increased, the TPF, the “know-how” component of SMT2, activates a succession of chemical reactions to stearate “metal soaps”.

 

From the physics of boundary friction, it is known that metal soaps bond covalently to a friction surface forming structured protective “molecular pile” layers from polar groups COOMe to promote (due to methyl units CH2) filiform (nematic) flow of boundary layers similar to those that exist in liquid crystals. These boundary layers, at the expense of methylene groups (CH3), having incredibly high (commensurable with diamond) molecular hardness, shield the contact surfaces, thereby minimizing wear and friction.

 

Being an oxygen radical in a chainomatic molecule of hydrocarbons, this component, under influencing processes of a triboelectricity and oxidation of metal surfaces, activates a particular succession of chemical reactions through stearic similar joints like CH3–(CH2)13–COOH to stearates or so-called “metal soaps”, having outstanding tribological properties.

  • SMT2 molecules are non-petroleum based ions with an extremely high affinity towards Fe (ferrous-iron based metals)
  • SMT2 molecules are <1µm and are therefore able to penetrate gum and varnish residual build-up on ferrous surfaces. Once SMT2 molecules penetrate these surfaces, they bond with loose Fe molecules as they are covalently drawn into the ferrous metal micro-pores. Once bonded the surface no longer has the cracks, pores, and asperities for the gum/varnish particulate to latch onto and releases them into the lubricant stream to be cleaned by the inline filtration system
  • Contains 99.9% synthetic anti-friction compounds
  • Has high affinity to absorb, bond, and microscopically penetrate ferrous (Iron) surfaces
  • SMT2 molecules form metal hydride particles on and below metal surfaces to seal the rough pores and to smooth the metal surface asperities
  • SMT2 provides protection from abrasion by forming a near diamond hard surface film on and below metal surfaces
  • SMT2 starts to activate at temperatures above 40°C. The higher the temperature, the faster the activation time
  • SMT2 picks up the existing loose Fe (already in solution from the load zone of the friction environment) as SMT2 heads toward the broken molecular chains that exist on the surface of the ferrous iron
  • SMT2 forms a permanent bond, only to be worn off as physics dictates, within the given friction environment
  • The resulting compound is harder, not due to “making” the original friction area “harder”, rather by microscopically filling in the pits, cracks, and uneven surface of the friction surface making the surface as near perfectly smooth as is scientifically possible. This will not change dimensions of contacted parts. SMT2 will reduce varnish between parts

SMT2 is designed for all LPT environments – high Load, extreme Pressure, and high Temperature.

 

It is important to keep in mind that SMT2 is a synthetic product derived from hydrocarbon compounds; therefore, it is chemically neutral. By definition, a synthetic is a product where all the molecules are identical. This is in contrast to organic products that are comprised of many, differing molecules. Synthetics are superior to organics because no matter how much heat, pressure, and friction SMT2 (synthetic) is exposed to, the molecules always return to their original state and maintain their original anti-friction function. Organics, on the other hand, break down under heat, pressure, and friction and form new compounds and their original function is altered. A good illustration is to think of a synthetic as “silly putty”. You can take a hammer and smash “silly putty” all you want, but it will eventually return to exactly the same form it was in before you smashed it. Now, think of an organic as glass. If you smash a piece of glass with a hammer, it can never return to its original state.
