Graphene helps wear resistance in mining…. could it have potential in gear manufacturing?

Graphene has long been hailed as a wonder material and ever more applications are being advanced for its use. Manufacturers’ Monthly reports on a company called First Graphene utilising it to increase resistance to wear in the mining industry with dramatic results. See more here.

Graphene also has huge potential as a lubricant with applications both in automotive manufacturing and gear manufacturing.

An article linked here and a short audio in Designer Edge reviews this potential as an eventual replacement for oil-based lubricants.
