Abstract
There are two main objectives that this proposal addresses. The first is to develop an oil additive that reduces friction and is thermally conductive and designed to increase engine efficiency and equipment lifecycles.This will be obtained through further material production and testing.Once the desired thermal conductivity and friction coefficient is achieved, the oil additive will be tested at SDSMT for fuel efficiency. The second, is to provide a material ready for purchase and use by the AF on AGE equipment and other DoD platforms.HF Webster has the expertise, personnel, and facilities to reliably ramp up production of the additive as required by the customer.
