Benefits and advantages of PTFE Oil Additives in Engines
Due to the advancement in technology, high power engines are in use but common engine oils in the market cannot provide what PTFE Oil additives can. At temperatures of 150 C and beyond the viscosity of oil comes to very low level and there is a reduction in lubrication which results in increased friction and wear.
There is as that apprehension that oil additive may dilute engine oil which is not true. PTFE oil additive to be added to lubricating oil is not more than 10% of the quantity of engine oil and such small quantity does not affect the properties of the lubricating oil.
PTFE molecules in Oil additive are super micro fined and easily pass through the oil filters and channels. In addition, the PTFE molecules do not tend to clog or coagulate even if the temperature rises beyond 300° C
PTFE oil additive can stabilize in all type of mineral, semi synthetic and synthetic oils recommended for engines and machines.
PTFE when added to lube oil minimize noxious emissions as the molecules are active in very low concentrations and tests have proved that PTFE molecules do not decompose in the engine during combustion as the residence time is very short.
A good PTFE oil additive can save fuel by 4 to 8% although the savings are indirect since the additive is not directly added in the fuel. The indirect saving is seen because of reduction of internal friction in the engine and leakage along piston rings. Here the temperature of the piston rings reach beyond 230° C as a reason of which there will be insufficient lubrication with normal lube oils. Also, “Stick-Slip" is caused due to the addition of vibration of the piston rings in the grove to poor lubrication. The problem of “Stick-slip" does not allow the piston rings from following the cylinder wall smoothly due to which there will be leakage and loss of compression. PTFE reduces “Stick-Slip" significantly making the piston rings to follow the cylinder walls easily.
1. Using PTFE, wear and friction can be reduced up to 60%
2. Increased engine life to 2 times
3. Increased life of the lube oil as the viscosity of the oil is maintained and carbonising of the oil is reduced to great extent which will allow the consumer to use the oil to extended level and then go for change.
4. Compression is maintained without losses.
