Tests & Validation

Over 10 million operational hours in harsh racing environments, everyday use and laboratories using state-of-the-art AVL equipment have verified that Triboron products have a proven ability to reduce friction, save fuel and contribute to anti-bacterial control. Triboron products are also determined to be safe for use in both new and used applications, without any negative impact on engines, emission control systems or machines.

Our solid long-term quality verification is the base for Triboron International’s guarantee, which offers financial compensation to the user in the unlikely event of an operational malfunction that is caused by our products.

Friction Reduction

Ångströms Tribomaterialgrupp vid universitetet i Uppsala har genomfört friktionstester i laboratoriemiljö med fokus på effekten av upprepad besprutning av Triboronteknologin på en metallyta.

Diagrammet visar hur friktionskoefficienten minskar vid upprepad besprutning (en sekund var tionde sekund) av en blandning av komprimerad luft och Triboron på en oljesmörjd yta.

Fuel Consumption: Cars

An independent car testing company has made extensive road tests in modern cars of various sizes and models, with and without Triboron. Cars with Triboron in the fuel had an average reduction of fuel consumption with 3-5% compared to cars driven without Triboron.

Another test using state-of-the-art AVL equipment in the advanced laboratory NEVS/GM resulted in a 3% reduction of fuel and CO2 emissions with Triboron Fuel Formula

The best effect in the test was shown by diesel cars, which had an average of 6% lower fuel consumption with Triboron, while petrol-powered cars had an average reduction of 4.8%.

Fuel Consumption: Stationary Generators

Similar tests with two stationary generators resulted in an even higher fuel reduction with Triboron Formula in the fuel. The test with the diesel-powered portable generator included two different generators, used with or without Triboron technology, each at three different constant power outputs, each subtest 5 hours long.

The average fuel savings in the test of two generators were 8.6% and 12% with Triboron technology in the fuel.

Fuel Consumption: 2-stroke Applications

Adding a single per cent of Triboron’s Formula into the fuel will result in significant reductions of the emissions of harmful carbon monoxide (CO) and hydrocarbons (HC) as well as carbon dioxide (CO2). This demonstrates the potential for contributing to improved air quality in congested urban areas with large motorbike populations.

Tests performed by SP Technical Research Institute of Sweden using a Stihl MS181 Engine showed that emissions of HC and CO were reduced by 25% with Triboron 2-stroke Formula replacing the standard synthetic oil in the fuel. The equivalent reduction of fuel and CO2 emissions was 20%.

Durability

A long-term test using state-of-the-art AVL equipment in the advanced laboratory NEVS/GM covered 50,000 kilometres and resulted in a 3% reduction of fuel and CO2 emissions with Triboron Fuel Formula. The test also showed that the Triboron technology doesn’t harm or reduce the efficiency of the exhaust treatment system.

The fuel consumption and CO2 emissions were roughly 3% lower when using Triboron. This is the largest drop ever achieved in such a test, where the tested modification has not included a redesign of the drivetrain.
The ageing of the catalytic system is normal after 50,000 km of accelerated driving, with emissions far below legal limit (Euro 4). No engine fault codes were displayed during the test.

Wear

A study by Ångström Laboratory at Uppsala University resulted in less friction and wear with Triboron 2-Stroke Fuel Formula in the fuel.

Anti-Bacterial

The review in Autobild Magazine (tested by SGS) found the Triboron Formula to be active against bacterial attack under winter storage conditions. The test showed that all five types of bacteria, yeast and mould tested were eliminated.

The Hamburg-test

Further testing provided by Technische Mikrobiologie Dr. Jutta Höffler GmbH in Hamburg 2016 provides proof that Triboron also effectively prevents the growth of Bacteria (Pseudomonas aeruginosa), Fungi/Yeast (Hormoconis resinae) and Mold (Yarrowia tropicalis). Under some circumstances their prescense is completely eliminated.

Triboron Fuel Formula was added to a diesel-fuel in three different concentrations; 1:500, 1:1000 & 1:2000, where 1:1000 is the recommended concentration regarding fuel-economy. The prescence of bacteria, svamp/yeast and mold was then measuered three times after a certain amount of days; 1, 7 and 28 days. At double the dosage, 1:500, which is recommended when having problems with bacteria, the result shows that the three microorganisms chosen for the test is completely eradicated somewhere between 8 and 28 days into testing.

Pseudomonas Aeruginosa (Bacteria)

The test shows that the most efficient way to prevent the growth of Pseudomonas Aeruginosa is to use a concentration of 1:500, after 28 days no further growth of the bacteria was seen.

Hormoconis Resinae (Fungi/Yeast)

The test shows that both the 1:500 concentration, and the 1:1000 concentration effectively prevent the growth of Hormoconis Resinae, after 28 days no further growth of the fungi/yeast was seen.

Yarrowia Tropicalis (Mold)

The test shows that all of the concentrations effectively prevent Yarrowia Tropicalis (Mold), after 28 days, no further growth was seen.
