Sunnen Products announces partnership with Applied Nano Surfaces to advance friction and wear reduction technology

July 19 2019 – Sunnen Products Company and Sweden’s Applied Nano Surfaces (ANS) have entered into a joint market development agreement to advance technology and applications based on the Triboconditioning process recently patented by ANS. The process reduces friction and wear on various steel and cast iron surfaces while improving surface finish, preventing seizures, and enhancing product life.

Triboconditioning is a combined mechano-chemical surface treatment process which uses a machining procedure to level off surface peaks and apply a friction- and wear-reducing compound to the component surface. Unlike spray coatings, the compound becomes an integrated part of the component structure at a nano level.  

Key applications include automotive engine components such as valve train parts, cylinder liners, crankshafts and connecting rods, as well as industrial applications such as hydraulic motors, rock drills, pumps, chains, gears and compressors.

Headquartered in Uppsala, Sweden, ANS offers surface treatment technologies on a range of industrial and automotive applications.
