While the science is advanced, the application is simple.
All FriktionTek® products use the original patented ceramic-metal oil additive that is applied without disassembly. It contains a silicate building material and a unique magnesium-based energy activator suspended in a synthetic gel.
FriktionTek® works by applying a long-lasting ceramic-metal (cermet) surface to engines, transmissions, gearboxes, differentials and power steering units while you drive. Its patented ceramic formula is simply added to the engine oil, transmission fluid or power steering fluid. It is activated by heat of friction between metal parts.
When activated, FriktionTek® attaches to the microscopic wear metals in the oil (or fluid) and bonds them to the molecular crystalline structure of the metal surface. Once the friction is reduced, the compound becomes inert and the surface stops growing. This process simultaneously restores and protects worn parts creating a smoother, more durable surface. FriktionTek® effectively optimizes performance while reducing friction and wear up to 65,000 miles with a 100% money-back guarantee.
Friction reducing clean technology
Friction, heat and corrosion are the primary forces that wear out the critical components of your vehicle. FriktionTek’s ceramic-metal (or cermet) surface drastically reduces their effects. By abating these forces, your engine will create the same amount of power on less gas, making your vehicle more energy efficient and eco-friendly.
Emission tests also shows that FriktionTek® Engine Treatment can reduce airborne particulates up to 87.3%.
The most advanced automotive protection you can buy
FriktionTek® is not a lubricant or just a coating. It is the only automotive product available that actually penetrates and creates a ceramic bond with metal on a molecular level, thus replacing the original metal-to-metal surface with much stronger and smoother cermet-to-cermet contact surfaces.
Proven by Oil Analysis
Independent tests show FriktionTek re-applies the metal particulates found in your oil back to your engine's part surfaces.
This test shows that FriktionTek® Engine Treatment reapplied up to 90% of metal particulates to engine surfaces while removing soot and carbon deposits.
Test vehicle: 1997 Cummins M11 Diesel Engine; odometer: 270,383 miles.
Procedure: At 2,827 miles into oil cycle, two oil samples were drawn without changing oil. The first oil sample was drawn prior the addition of FriktionTek® After FriktionTek® was added, the vehicle idled for 30 minutes, then the second oil sample was drawn.
While the particle size is extremely small, it still makes a big difference.
Each FriktionTek® product is scientifically engineered to work in the mechanical environment listed on the label. The particle size varies to work within the exacting tolerances of a given system. We do not recommend you use our products interchangeably
Technical Aspects of our Cermet Surface
Microhardness: 690-710 HV
Friction Coefficient: up to 0.003 µm
Melting Point: 2,900ºF
Corrosion Resistance: High
Comparatively. the mircohardness of steel is only 150 HV with a friction coefficient of 0.14 µm and a melt point of 2,700ºF.
Most oil additives are PTFE based. The friction coefficient of PTFEs are 0.04 µm and the melt point is only 565ºF, which is about the same degradation level as most motor oils.
FriktionTek® is an eco-friendly product. It is non-toxic and non-flammable. FriktionTek® ceramic oil additives consists of a natural ceramic compound suspended in a synthetic petroleum-based gel. It contains no PTFEs, metals, detergents, or waxes. And unlike some ceramic treatments, FriktionTek® does not contain chlorine or carbons.
Due to the particle size, FriktionTek® cannot clog oil filters or hoses. It only works on metal surfaces and has no effect on seals or gaskets. FriktionTek®, manufactured by XADO, is compatible with all oil types and oil additives.
