AR9100's patented Potassium Nanoborate Friction Modifier and System Cleaner incorporates 4 complex organic esters that are formulated to dissolve and remove varnish, carbon and other deposits from the oil wetted surfaces of the engine. The esters also serve to facilitate the migration of the protective boron nanoparticles to the engine's metal surfaces where they form a solid boundary film that significantly reduces operating friction, protects equipment from wear, extends operating life and reduces energy requirements. By first cleaning the engine through its fluid system and then reducing surface friction, AR9100 is able to both restore and preserve engine performance in a number of important ways.
In Ford Power Stroke 6.0L and 7.3L trucks, AR9100 cleans and lubricates the HEUI injectors. Stiction is eliminated and cold start problems including rough idling, cylinder misfires, and loss of acceleration are corrected.
Boron lubrication technology was initially developed at the Argonne National Laboratory for the US Dept. of Energy. Representing a ground-breaking advance in lubrication technology, boron was demonstrated to greatly enhance lubricity and protection through the formation of a nearly frictionless solid boundary layer. However initial efforts to commercialize boron lubricants were hampered by large boric acid particle sizes.
Archoil's revolutionary new potassium nanoborate formulation represents the second generation in boron tribology and another huge leap forward in lubrication with its unique ability to reduce boron size down to the more efficient 'nano' level and deliver it in a naturally occurring fatty acid ester matrix carrier.
