SPOKANE, WA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- November 9, 2006 -- Kinetitec Corporation, a private company offering friction reduction solutions, announces that Jane E. Buehler, Chief Technology Officer (CTO), has contributed to an article in the October 2006 issue of Tribology & Lubrication Technology (TLT) Magazine.

The article, titled "Novel Surface Treatment Reduces Friction and Wear," appears in the "Tech Beat" column by Dr. Neil Canter, Contributing Editor.

In an excerpt from the article, Jane E. Buehler, CTO, stated, "One concern about solid lubricant coatings is the potential for them to wear off as the surface erodes over time. Such coatings can be subjected to chipping, flaking and peeling. We have developed an innovative approach to incorporate the solid lubricant into the substrate. Our technique is known as the Induratec™ process."

This prestigious international trade magazine is the official monthly magazine of the Society of Tribologists & Lubrication Engineers.
