Fuel Ox LLC, a fuel additives maker, recently unveiled a “breakthrough solution” to maximize equipment performance, Infinity Lube. Unlike conventional lubricants, which add a temporary film layer and coating to reduce friction and displace water, Infinity Lube products contain HDI-2500, a conditioning compound that enables the carbonitriding, or case hardening, of metal friction points in machinery.

As temperatures increase, the carbonitriding process diffuses carbon and nitrogen into metal to create a smooth, super-hard protective alloy layer of up to 15 microns (0.015 mm). This surface area conditioning reduces friction, lowers operating temperatures and substantially decreases wear.
