“Compared with the present-day, oil-based lubricants, water offers numerous important functional advantages: it is sustainable, globally available, non-toxic, and non-flammable”, explains Dr. Stefan Seemeyer, Head of Research and Product Development at Klüber Lubrication. “As a lubricant, it had up to now been of limited utility, since water is subject to certain physical and biological limitations, like evaporation and freezing points, oxidation or microbiological growth. By means of additives in the lubricant or technical solutions at the component concerned, however, these limits can be shifted, and the water-specific effects rendered beneficially usable. With a water-based product concept, we’ve even been able to reduce the friction involved far enough to bring the range of ‘superlubricity’ within reach.”
