This time, we asked you about Maruyama Molybdenum Base Power, which has become a hot topic as an oil additive with a very high sensory effect.
Since it is a price that is not cheap at all, many users have asked us about the amount of addition, frequency of addition, and cost-effectiveness.
However, in the scope of my investigation, the nature of molybdenum disulfide of the main component, because there is little clear academic support, without informing the recommended amount and addition frequency, At present, we leave the amount specified by the manufacturer to the user based on the base.
It's a consultation.
The added molybdenum circulates with oil to cause film on the metal surface to reduce friction.
When the engine stops, it does not circulate oil, so I imagine that the film will be gone.
Another video site described it as a coating agent.
Is molybdenum attached to the metal surface even when the engine is stopped?
Does the added molybdenum come off when the engine oil is changed?(I think a little will remain.)
Thank you very much.
We would like to answer your question.
We are currently reading several books and literature on molybdenum disulfide in Japan and overseas.
I try to interpret this additive from an academic point of view as much as possible, but I am not a researcher or developer of molybdenum disulfide additives, so Please understand that I am not in my imagination.
The thickness of the oil film varies depending on the location when the engine is running, and the place in the floating state (interface lubrication state) by hydraulic pressure, such as the journal part with a plain bearing, becomes several tens of micrometers, The oil film on the cylinder wall is scraped off by the piston ring, so it becomes thinner.
Maruyama molybdenum-based power molybdenum disulfide particles, which are described as 0.1 micrometers in average particle size, are dispersed in these oil films and are introduced one after another, so we believe that a better lubrication condition can be obtained.
Even in the engine stop state, some engine oil types have high oil film retention, and I think that molybdenum disulfide particles are somewhat present on the surface.
Next, maruyama molybdenum-based power is used to form a film like a coating layer.
In general, due to the properties of particle dispersibility and adsorption, it is unlikely that a dispersion that is as dispersable as Maruyama molybdenum base power will have both the adsorption of particles to metal surfaces at the same time.If the adsorption is high, the filter will be clogged early.
On the other hand, if you refer to a certain document, molybdenum disulfide coating layer of about 1 micrometer is formed on the internal metal surface of the engine, no more growth, by continuing to introduce sequential lymobdenum disulfide particles, I saw the description that it is able to keep the layer of about 1 micrometer while repairing the worn layer.
The mechanism of coating layer formation was not easy to explain as described above, and it was a long time ago (about 40 years ago) that described the results of observation with an electron microscope.
As far as I can see, most molybdenum disulfide seems to be flowing out when removing the engine oil with Maruyama molybdenum base power added.
However, if you expect the coating layer formation, it is not surprising that molybdenum disulfide particles are formed by adhesion to the metal surface at the site where it becomes locally high temperature.
It is not easy to study and observe the behavior of molybdenum disulfide particles in a steady manner.
However, with regard to Maruyama molybdenum base power, it is certain that the molybdenum disulfide particles are finer and very good in dispersion stability compared to other products, for example, fuel economy, quietness, engine torque, etc., with numerical indicators, It may be interesting to change the frequency and concentration of additions to find the appropriate addition while imagining the properties of molybdenum disulfide.
I was able to reply without a hold, but I would appreciate it if there is any reference.
Thank you very very.
