Revitalization — "bringing back to life"
The word revitalization (latin. vita — life) can be literlly interpreted as "bringing back to life". The discovery of the revitalization phenomenon is based on the unique physical and chemical processes as a result of friction which occurs under specific conditions.
In brief, the essence of the phenomenon is as follows: when a mechanism is operating, stress is formed on the friction surfaces. Under high load excessive thermal energy is released destroying and wearing parts.
However, if a unique building material — revitalizant is introduced to the friction area, it converts the excessive energy to form a new coating. Therefore from friction's destructive energy positive conditions are formed. The energy of destructions turns into the energy of creation!
Wear and tear of the operating surface
In order for a defect to occur it is enough to have a scratch or a chip emerged due to impact of solid foreign particles (dust, dirt or cutting waste). This area becomes a zone of enormous surface activity. It appears in places where metal atoms have uncompensated connections. So they can be easily “loosened” and torn from the matrix when the load increases. Metal starts chipping.
Start of the revitalization process
The revitalizant gets onto the operating surface together with the lubricant. The revitalizant starts acting exactly in the zone of the heaviest wear, as there is enough excess energy here to start to start the revitalization process, and metal atoms possess the largest number of uncompensated connections. These connections, like magnets, capture and hold the building material, revitalizant, just in the areas of wear and tear.
New coating formation
In a few minutes after beginning of the revitalization process a ceramic-metal patch appears in the place where a scratch was. The zone of enormous activity disappears. The energy processes stabilize, the growth of the ceramic-metal coating stops.
Completion of the surface modification
Due to diffusion of the protective layer into metal an extremely firm gradient ceramic-metal coating with unique operating properties is created.
