Functions performed by Polytron additive

A. Polytron is carried to the friction surfaces by the lubricant or fluid it is added to. If there is friction, the chemicals implanted into the hydro-carbon molecular chain of this product bond themselves molecularly to the metal surface.

By reducing the possibilities of metal tearing under contact, our product allows the metal surfaces to work against each other to gradually smooth each other out. Within certain limits, smoother metal surfaces means less friction and less friction means less heat released and less wear.

B. At the same time Polytron begins to do its part in increasing the "slipperiness" between the surfaces. In effect, Polytron is aiding the host oil in maintaining, as much as possible, the hydrodynamic fluid film between these smoother metal surfaces. Polytron, under heated conditions, is an extremely strong hydrocarbon that is resistant to film shear and vaporization. It is capable of maintaining a state, somewhere between a liquid and a gas under high temperatures and pressures and therefore, more capable as high film strength lubricant.

C. Polytron contains certain dispersants whose primary functions are to assist in the process of treating the metal by cleaning your engine or other mechanisms. The more contaminants there are in your engine, (such as carbon, sludge, varnishes, etc.) the less efficient your engine performance is. This unique product breaks up these contaminants in your oil, removes them from surfaces they have adhered to, and suspends them in the engine oil. By doing so (as you change your oil) you eliminate the sludge that "reduces" the efficiency of your engine.

D. Our additive contains certain oxidation inhibitors that assist in keeping your lubricants free from acids. As the lubricants are subjected to oil shear, pressure and heat in the presence of oxygen, moisture and chemical by-products, acids begin to form, which then leads to corrosive action on metal parts.

By reducing the internal heat in your engine, through reduced friction, we are helping to retard the oxidation process. As a safety measure, we have added these oxidation inhibitors to this unique product to assist and enhance the inhibitors already contained in your host lubricant. It is important to remember that oxidized oil is a poor lubricant and can actually increase friction, internal to the mechanism due to what is referred to as "fluid friction" or "oil resistance".

Unlike many other products on the international market, what Polytron additive does is that (during its metal treatment stage) it takes advantage of the friction produced due to lack of complete (hydrodynamic) lubrication.
