Since 1992, the NNT group of companies has been successfully researching, developing, and producing boron-based nanomaterials that are used in a range of different products. The deliberate production of materials at the atomic level and use of particular phenomena that occur in the nanometre range, allow for a wealth of new possibilities and applications. Whether it be surface and coating technology, solar technology, energy systems, or electronics – the list goes on and on.

The objective of nanotechnology is to blend the laws of physics, chemistry, and biology at the atomic level, and to thus give rise to interdisciplinary development. Materials are broken down to their smallest elements (atoms) and are then “organised” or “arranged” anew. This approach allows for new materials and material properties to be created, as this smallest of scales allows for effects that do not play a role above a size range of 100 nm. Expert circles and the media refer to nanotechnology as a key technology of the 21st century.

The element boron

Boron is a so called semimetal, as are for example silicon or germanium. The element’s physical and chemical properties are therefore not clearly of a metallic or a non-metallic nature.

No other element compares to boron when it comes to the flexibility of its modifications. The thermodynamically stable b-romoedric boron features a Mohs hardness of 9.3 and it is the hardest element, second only to the diamond carbon modification (Mohs hardness of 10). The glossy black borcarbides such as B13C2 or the cubic boron nitride CBN also feature high levels of hardness. The hexagonal boron nitride HBN on the other hand has a crystal structure that resembles graphite, and is accordingly less hard while possessing good lubrication properties.

The NNT shock and detonation method (using high pressure of up to 170,000 bar and a temperature of 4,300 °C for a duration of 1/1,000,000 seconds) is used in the production of modified nanocrystals from the element boron on a scale ranging between 0.5 and 100 nanometres. Mono Crystal Diamond Powder (MCDP) is produced through implosion of boron nitride. These nanoboron crystals range in size between 0.5 and 100 nanometres. In the next step, the transformed crystals are filtered and divided into MCDP, nanoboron, CBN, and HBN in a refinery plant using a special technique. The crystals are then solidified under vacuum conditions in argon furnaces using high temperatures, to achieve a very high degree of purity, of 99.9 %. The argon system allows for quick homogenisation of the modified MCDP and nanoboron crystals in all fluids with lubrication properties. We use the process technology outlined above to obtain the basic materials that we use in our products. In addition to this, the NNT group of companies also produces considerable amounts of high-tech materials for industrial applications and users.

The Quadro principle

Under a microscope, the rough working and grinding metal surfaces become visible on the nanometre scale. High degrees of friction, wear, and corrosion are visible in the contact areas.

Phase 1 – Filling in the surface
Active nanoboron particles (NBN) are grouted into the metal surfaces using high pressure. The friction surface is thus smoothened.

Phase 2 – Protective film
MCDP (Mono Crystal Diamond Powder) nanoparticles form an additional protective layer under high pressure, that is almost as hard as a diamond. This film provides for the metal surfaces to be fully smoothed and protected.

Phase 3 – Bearing-ball effect
A bearing-ball effect is added to this protective film by ball-shaped MCDP nanoparticles, optimising their tribological properties. Sliding friction is thus replaced with rolling friction.

Phase 4 – Homogeneous heat distribution
MCDP and NBN nanoparticles that were not grouted in, provide for homogeneous heat distribution in the motor oil, thanks to their positive heat conductivity.
