Under higher contact pressure of 0.94 GPa, OLC keeps its friction - reducing property by the formation of a friction - induced tribo film that is nearly 100 nm thick. This tribofilm consists of OLCs, nano - sized wear debris, amorphous carbon, and graphitic layers on the wear ebris induced by the cataly tic effect by the metal nanoparticle . The OLC maintains its concentric graphitic structure at the sliding interface even under 1GPa. The friction reduction mechanism of OLC is different from that of the inorganic fullerenes as MoS2 or WS2. Presumably, OLC itself has low friction properties and i found a product: www.nanolub.com.sg www.nanolubrcx.ca (yeah sure no need additive.... oil from the can is the best; can't find an ironic icon)

Take a look at the bottles(Mobil 1). Reading it sounds like LM Mos2 with the nano particles, mineral oil carrier,etc. Think I will stick with the mos2 as I only use ~100ml each oil change.
