Skepticism is warranted.

But to link to a product that is the modern equivalent of "Marvel Mystery Oil" shows an utter lack of understanding of the topic in question. You punctuated DiamondLube's point. It is better to not post if you don't have an understanding of the subject at hand.

False argument.

you assume a perfect world.

Maybe he really doesn't know that he doesn't understand.......

Your solution is that all the 'uninformed' sit back and be quite.... let us 'smarter' people teach you......

see previous post....."it's a forum....."

I am in the position to filter through this pile.

In the world of forums there are several levels. Ecomodder is in the 'general' level. Not 'academic' or 'professional'. At the general level I would say we are at least top 10%.
Come on.......buck up. Filter thru the crap and keep plowing.
As you have pointed out, this forum is at that general level. I simply bring up the salient point that there is a whole science based around nano particle interactions to help the reader along. Otherwise the reader sees nothing but crap. There has to be a balance.

Because it is an open forum, I get to have my say. I simply choose to write about subjects I have expertise and experience in. Many others on this forum do the same. Many others do not. I understand that is the way things are. But a little correction is needed at times.

I suggest we get back to the subject at hand . . . nano lubricants.

I approached GM and Ford first, however they refused to consider it. Think replacement parts that are not needed, that is one side effect. Life wear testing at a well known Knife company tested my coating over steel on steel and discovered my coating lasted 30 times longer than their oil and the steel showed no wear, however the machine broke from running too long. You really want to see something that might make sense if you think about it, go to ebay.com and look up ICE SKATE LUBE and I already know an ice skate is not an engine, so don't say it. On the other hand steel that resists wear has to get help from Something. Chris

I think you're due for a filter change. I linked to a joke product at a joke website.

Please discuss.

You have not tested the product and you have not given any discussion of why it should not work. There is good basis for discussion.

Discuss the science possibilities. Discuss the claims. I am as skeptical about the claims made by DiamondLube, but there is basis for this technology.

Just like at the Circus, the burdon-of-proof/justification lies with the "hawker" not with the "hawkee".

DiamondLube, do you have test samples we could get our hands on? If they are not free, do you have some at greatly reduced prices? Some of us would be willing to do testing of the product's qualitative as well as quantitative properties and report here. If this is truly your business, such samples would be low cost advertising. The skate lube you suggested on Ebay is the only small quantity product I see, and it looks like it is not your product.
