Applied Nano Surfaces

It’s all about friction
By David Chobany

Sunnen Products recently announced a partnership with Applied Nano Surfaces (ANS) to advance friction and wear reduction technology. Sunnen and Sweden’s Applied Nano Surfaces (ANS) have entered into a joint market development agreement to advance technology and applications based on the Triboconditioning process recently patented by ANS. The process reduces friction and wear on various steel and cast iron surfaces while improving surface finish, preventing seizures, and enhancing product life.

Key applications include automotive engine components such as valve train parts, cylinder liners, crankshafts and connecting rods, as well as industrial applications such as hydraulic motors, rock drills, pumps, chains, gears and compressors.
