Nano Oil Additive Samples Now Available

Little Rock, AR | Posted on November 14th, 2007

CleanTechnology International Corp. announced today that it is making available free samples, up to 5 grams, of its solid Carbon NanoSphere Chain™ (CNSC) material to approved oil/additive/bio-diesel companies. CTIC is able to make these material samples available to American industry, as its high-volume production facility in Houston, TX is now operational. CNSC material is catalyst-free and 100% pure carbon as produced, with no imbedded extraneous materials.

Since CTIC announced research findings from the Southwest Research Institute -- which showed a significant increase in lubricity when carbon nanosphere chains were added to motor oil -- some American companies are already doing their own research with CNSC material to determine its potential for increasing lubricity and mileage -- and decreasing engine wear. This breakthrough nanomaterial is also being tested for its predicted composite value in materials such as plastic, resins, ceramics and metal alloys. It is believed that current studies will show this material to be unaffected by even the highest operating motor temperatures.

More than four billion quarts of crankcase oil are used in the United States per year. Currently available engine oils include the anti-wear additive zinc dialkyldithiophosphate (ZDDP), which contains phosphorous and sulfur. These are elements that poison catalytic converters causing increased automotive emissions. It is expected that the EPA eventually will mandate the elimination of ZDDP, or allow only extremely low levels in engine oil. Additionally, sulfur in diesel oil has to be reduced, with a consequent decrease in lubricity. NanoSphere material is now available in large quantities, to research exciting new solutions to these problems.

Companies wishing to obtain research samples of Carbon NanoSphere Chain™ material can go to http://www.cleantechnano.com , and apply via email at the SALES page. A Research and Analysis Agreement is required, whether obtaining limited free samples or purchasing larger volumes (kilos/pounds).
