Sorry diamond lovers, but graphene is the most awesome form of carbon out there. Evidence: Andre Geim and Konstantin Novoselov, the two Russian-born scientists who isolated one-atom-thick sheets of the graphene in 2004, won the Nobel Prize in 2010. Graphene is one of the strongest, lightest and most conductive materials known to humankind. It's a worthy Nobel, for the simple reason that graphene may be one of the most promising and versatile materials ever discovered. Geim and Novoselov figured out how to isolate monolayer graphene using objects common to any office: Scotch tape and pencil leads. Wired
Gunny Glide is a revolutionary graphene/h-BN based lubricant designed to work on all surfaces. Graphene and hexagonal boron nitride are two-dimensional one-atom-thick materials.
Graphene, a single layer of carbon atoms, is 200x stronger than steel and has more lubricity than any single material known. Graphene when suspended in a lubricant and applied to a surface will burnish itself to that surface. It not only fills any pores or defects in a surface but burnishes to in a sense become part of that surface. This allows the lubricant to become better the more two parts slide across one another. Graphene offers superior lubrication and surface wear protection. Gunny Glide also offers outstanding protection against corrosion.
Boron Nitride is a thermally and chemically resistant refractory compound of boron and nitrogen with the chemical formula BN. It exists in various crystalline forms that are isoelectronic to a similarly structured carbon lattice. The hexagonal form corresponding to graphite is the most stable and soft among BN polymorphs, and is therefore used as a lubricant and an additive to products. Using h-Boron Nitride adds chemical stability to the product while also enhancing lubricant capabilities.
What’s the difference in Gunny Glide and other graphene lubricants? Graphene is generally just added to a lubricant and shaking is required in order to suspend it for use. In Gunny Glide, a patent pending process helps to keep the graphene suspended and creates a better environment for even distribution of the graphene.
Gunny Glide continues to get better with use. Works great on knife pivots, firearms, blade surfaces for corrosion protection and much more. It really excels as an all purpose lubricant.
