New Ångström research supports Triboron’s extensive laboratory and field tests
New research performed by Elin Larsson, Petra Olander and Prof. Staffan Jacobson at the Ångström laboratory has focused on simplified lab experiments to understand fuel consumption reduction in field tests with boron as a lubricating fuel additive. The new laboratory tests, which were presented in March 2017, support the positive findings in field tests with boron lubricants, such as the Triboron technology. They also demonstrate the potential of boric acid as a fuel additive. All tests with boric acid resulted in friction reductions, at least during parts of the tests. For a specific test method, friction reductions up to 50 per cent were found.
