Almost 20% of all energy in the world goes to overcome friction. Nanol, due to its innovative technology solution is a lubricant oil additive that reduces friction and reduces the wear in any 4 stroke combustion engine and in other types of machinery such as bearings in a wind power station or large machinery.

Nanol is a two-component additive where the second part is protecting and working against wear solving many issues around WEC (White Etching Cracks) a growing problem for among other metal fatigue such as bearings. To address the WEC we need new innovations and Nanol is one of them prolonging life time tenfold times. This anti-wear lubricant additive reduces fuel and oil consumption, extendes the working life of key engines and machine components. With Nanol, there is llless friction which means less wear and tear and lower emissions
