Frequently Asked Questions:


Q. What is a friction modifier additive?


Ans. Friction modifiers are additives that are used to reduce the effects of wear when two surfaces come into contact frequently as part of an industrial application. These types of additives create a boundary that prevents wear due to rolling, sliding and other forces by changing the coefficient of friction.



Q. How does a friction modifier work?


Ans. Friction modifiers are molecules containing a polar head that attaches to a metal surface, and a nonpolar tail that provides a cushion between two surfaces. This creates a surface that coats your metal components, protecting them when they come into contact with other surfaces as your equipment moves.



Q. How much friction modifier should I use?


Ans. Each friction modifier is formulated differently, so it is important that you check the specification sheet for each product in order to determine how much to use in your application.
