Revolution for your chain

Revolubes™, thanks to its base - complex, modified calcium sulfonate, combines with the metallic substratum through a physio-chemical reaction. The active additive is being diffused into the top layer of a ferrous material and provides it with a strong, abrasive and heat resistant boundary layer, with increased load capacity by at least 500%.

In addition, complex, modified calcium sulfonate changes the mechanical properties of the top material’s surface, causing it to float under load in microscale. This means that instead of shearing, scuffing and tearing the micro textures of paired surfaces during a run-in process, these are being pressed down providing a friction pair match, without material loss and, therefore, without the formation of abrasive material.

In regards to your chain, the lack of material loss prevents your chain from running out of design clearances.

How does Revolube affect your chain?

As mentioned in the previous article, the most desirable effect of chain lubrication is to produce as durable a boundary layer, covering the co-working chain faces, as possible.

Revolubes™ nanotechnology is precisely formulated to achieve this end. The formula eliminates all downsides of manual lubrication by creating a very durable, self-regenerating, chemically bonded surface layer on your chain links and sprockets that eliminates potential issues:

  • It is resistant to water or solvents.
  • It cannot be squeezed out from between the surfaces, due to chemical bonding.
  • It doesn’t collect dirt or dusts, because it leaves your chain dry but lubed.
  • Due to the surface modification effect, it prevents material loss, thus it:
    • Prevents from chain stretch:
      • Preserves designed clearances between links’ components
      • Provides high load capacity to pins, plates and link holes – exceeding 500% of nominal material capacity, without its plastic deformation.
      • Prevents from mutual rollers and sprockets deformation as a further consequence of chain stretch.
      • Ultimately, it eliminates the risk of chain snap.
    • The chemically bonded layer covers the top material’s surface what prevents your chain from getting rusty, so:
      • Your chain links are covered from ceasing and the whole chain from stiffening. This further reduces the stresses, that would drive your chain to failure.
      • Ensures smooth gear shifting.
      • Significantly reduces internal system’s resistance.
      • Ensures a quieter operation.
      • Looks better.
