Public Profile

TriboTEX is a clean tech startup that has developed a novel dual-function nanoparticle for industrial gearbox and automotive applications. The material forms a coating in situ during regular mechanical operation, where it fills in damage created by normal wear and tear and also significantly lowers friction for increased energy efficiency. The coating is also protective against wear and corrosion. TriboTEX produces and markets a nanostructured coating that provides repair-like effects during normal operations. The firm’s goal is to extend machinery life when failure seems imminent and predicted by condition-monitoring systems. The firm’s product, DuoLife, vastly improves efficiency anywhere friction takes place – not only reducing friction and wear, but effectively reconditioning moving parts to a optimal condition during normal operation. The firm’s synthetic, self-assembling nanoparticle-based coating improves the tribological properties of existing mechanisms through the formation of a protective coating on friction surfaces in-situ, and effectively reverses the wear p
