Home > C60 & Fullerence
Fullerene is the third known form of stable carbon, besides diamond and graphite. BARDAHL is the first company in the world to apply the fullerene chemistry
to the sector of lubricants, thus exploiting the fact that the fullerene spheres work like real micro-ball bearings, non-deformable and extremely stable:
they interpose between contacting surfaces and reduce friction in their movement.
Bardahl scientists successfully eliminated the problem of unprotected metal surface by carefully formulating a special additive known as Polar
Attraction. It fastens to metal and stays in place because the basic molecule used is a large one with a polar end group. Polar Attraction chemistry
remains a protective plated film over metal surfaces during high
temperature and pressure.
