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
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.
Laboratory fiction tests have been carried out by our research partner, the Tribomaterial Group at Ångström Laboratory, Uppsala University.
They have focused on studying the impact of repeated spraying of the technology on a metal surface.
The graph shows how the friction coefficient decreases during a repeated spraying (1 second every 10 seconds) of a mix of compressed air and a Triboron Fuel Formula on an oil lubricated surface.
A study by Ångström Laboratory at Uppsala University resulted in less friction and wear with Triboron 2-Stroke Fuel Formula in the fuel.
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.
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.
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.
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%.
Triboron 2-stroke Formula can be used in all 2-stroke engines such as:
◦ Oldtimer mopeds and engines
◦ Modern mopeds and scooters
◦ Leaf blowers and other hand machines with 2-stroke engines
◦ Outboard engines (also reduction of pollution of surface water!)
◦ Portable power generators.
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%.
