Is LOX-8 Paste effective in sealing urea tanks?Fluoramics
By creating a more efficiently running engine, you may see an increase in oil life. You will want to be sure you are properly testing your oil through a certified oil analysis company before extending time between oil changes.
Can Tufoil Engine Treatment be used with all automotive engines?Fluoramics
Tufoil is formulated to increase your motor’s efficiency by decreasing internal friction and overall operating temperatures. Tufoil Engine Treatment keeps unwanted particles and sludge in suspension, allowing filters to work more efficiently. Efficiently running engines and filters use less gas, need fewer repairs, run smoother and last longer.
PTFE stands for Polytetrafluoroethylene. PTFE is a synthetic fluoropolymer that has many desirable characteristics including outstanding chemical resistance, having one of the lowest coefficients of friction of any solid, and being super hydrophobic.
Are there oils with which Tufoil Engine Treatment should not be used?Fluoramics
Tufoil Engine Treatment has been tested by the U.S Government at the National Bureau of Standards. Their results prove that the surface friction of Tufoil (.029), makes it the most slippery substance known to man!
We recommend you change your oil and filter every 3,000 miles. However, many of our customers find that their oil is still clean at this point because of Tufoil’s ability to cut friction and wear. They will then make the decision to extend oil changes accordingly.
How much Tufoil Engine Treatment should I use?Fluoramics
We recommend 8 ounces of Tufoil as an initial treatment when you change your oil. (This would be for the standard 4-5 quart crankcase…less for smaller engines.) After this initial treatment, just 4-ounces of Tufoil added to the crankcase at each oil change is sufficient. The basic guideline would be 2 ounces for each quart as an initial treatment and 1 ounce per quart at each oil change after that.
Will Tufoil Engine Treatment help my car’s acceleration?Fluoramics
Tufoil works well in 4-cycle marine engines. It should be used in the same manner as automotive engines. It is also used in the lower unit gear box where the propeller is located. Tufoil contains rust inhibitors that will help protect a marine engine when it is shut down.
How does Tufoil Engine Treatment work with diesel engines?Fluoramics
Quite well. Independent tests show that Tufoil increases the cranking speed of cold diesels by 9.6%. Naturally, easier starting means that your battery life should be greatly extended as well! Users report startling acceleration with diesels using Tufoil.
Can I use Tufoil Engine Treatment in my differential?Fluoramics
On older engines, it is not at all unusual for the idle speed to increase when Tufoil is used. If the engine block has warped or has serious internal friction problems, the improvement with Tufoil can be quite dramatic. It will be less noticeable in loose engines that are in tip-top shape.
Does Tufoil Engine Treatment prolong engine life?Fluoramics
You can literally “double the life of your engine” by using Tufoil regularly! Most people consider 100,000 miles normal for their car. If you use Tufoil regularly at every oil change, you can expect at least 200,000…that’s not uncommon! Fewer repairs, together with longevity of the engine, really add up quickly.
Can Tufoil Engine Treatment be used in my motorcycle and ATV?Fluoramics
Many old engines show signs of oil burning. Tufoil can help in some cases by freeing up partially sticking piston rings. There have been some dramatic improvements reported from the field where Tufoil freed up the rings and they started working properly again. However, if the rings are cemented solid in their grooves or the cylinder is scored, no lubricant can eliminate the smoking.
Will Tufoil Engine Treatment harm my oil filter?Fluoramics
Yes. However, if you have an old classic that ran on oils before 1950, we recommend taking the engine apart and physically cleaning the sludge out of the crankcase and out of the valve covers before using Tufoil. A high detergent oil can stir that material up and cause problems.
Will Tufoil Engine Treatment help during hot weather starting?Fluoramics
The Canadian government tested Tufoil at their cold regions lab in Kapuskasing and found an increase of nearly 10% in cranking speed! Their tests also showed an improvement in fuel economy during cold weather operation.
Can I use Tufoil Engine Treatment with synthetic oils?Fluoramics
Tufoil stands head and shoulders above the rest. We have run thousands of abrasion tests in our lab over the last 25 years and no other oil additive performs close to Tufoil. For results of these tests, call us and we’ll be happy to send them to you FREE of charge.
Can I add Tufoil Engine Treatment to wheel bearing grease?Fluoramics
Wheel bearing and chassis greases benefit from the addition of Tufoil. Don’t use too much or the stiffness of the grease will be lost. It will become too fluid. Mix about one part Tufoil to ten parts grease. Mix thoroughly so the final product is uniform. Remember! In disk brake cars, the disks get very hot due to braking, not friction from the bearings. If you use too much Tufoil, the grease’s melting point can drop too low and cause it to run out of the bearing.
Do I have to wait for the next oil change or can I start using Tufoil Engine Treatment right now?Fluoramics
On new cars, we recommend adding Tufoil at your manufacturer’s recommended first oil change. On other cars, you can add Tufoil to your engine oil right away. Please understand that the use of Tufoil does not change the frequency of your oil changes. Please continue to change at your normal intervals.
Should I use Tufoil Engine Treatment in my transmission?Fluoramics
Tufoil is too slippery to use in automatic transmissions. The oils in transmissions need to be a bit grabby or the clutches won’t work properly. In manual transmissions, about one part Tufoil in ten parts high-grade transmission oil will make them run cooler and shift smoother.
Can Tufoil Engine Treatment be used in all engines?Fluoramics
Tufoil may be used in all 4-cycle engines including boats, recreational vehicles, 4-wheelers, motorcycles, and snowmobiles. It should not be used in 2-cycle engines. If you are unsure if your engine is 4-cycle or 2-cycle, please check engine specifications.
HinderRUST is a one-of-a-kind solvent-free rust stopper and lubricant that uses a proprietary PTFE technology to protect metals. Corrosion is annually a billion dollar problem and HinderRUST‘s engineered approach to surface film management protects surfaces against oxygen and moisture. Key to its success is the HinderRUST‘s ability to spread and wick into otherwise unreachable areas, thereby making it perfect for wire ropes and cables and hard-to-reach areas on equipment and machinery.
“Rust is a general term for describing iron oxides. In colloquial usage, the term is applied to red oxides, formed by the reaction of iron and oxygen in the presence of water or air moisture. There are also other forms of rust, such as the result of the reaction of iron and chloride in an environment deprived of oxygen, such as rebar used in underwater concrete pillars, which generates green rust. Several forms of rust are distinguishable visually and by spectroscopy, and form under different circumstances. Rust consists of hydrated iron(III) oxides Fe2O3·nH2O and iron(III) oxide-hydroxideFeO(OH)·Fe(OH)3”
According to NACE, formerly known as the National Association of Corrosion Engineers, rust causes billions of dollars in damages each year. Not only is it unsightly, untreated corrosion weakens metals and causes permanent damage.
How does HinderRUST fare with salt water?Fluoramics
HinderRUST has several advantages over other rust stoppers on the market. For one thing, HinderRUST uses no solvents. That means it doesn’t evaporate away like many other rust inhibiting products. For another, HinderRUST is engineered to create a barrier between surfaces and outside elements such as salt, moisture, and oxygen. Those two things make HinderRUST extremely good at providing protection from corrosion in all conditions, even in coastal areas.
One of the biggest problems in our factory is machines jamming because of rust. Does HinderRUST work well with manufacturing equipment?Fluoramics
Yes! Not only does HinderRUST prevent rust from forming or spreading, its lubricating properties help free up areas prone to freezing or jamming. Use HinderRUST on gears, wiring, nuts, bolts, and just about any place else to can think of to prevent maintenance issues resulting from rust. We like to say “HinderRUST Keeps the World Moving.”
Which version of HinderRUST should I use?Fluoramics
No, all HinderRUST formulas are solvent-free and non-hazardous. It is important to note that HinderRUST aerosol products use a propane butane propellant that promotes the spray function. Once applied, the propellant evaporates almost immediately, leaving the solvent-free base chemistry behind to do its job.
Which HinderRUST product will last the longest?Fluoramics
Application frequency will depend on usage, environment and storage conditions. Tools stored under cover and stored in dry, covered environments will need to be treated less often than tools used in humid and rainy conditions and stored outdoors or in aging sheds, for example.
Is the size or length of the thread a limiting factor with Formula-8?Fluoramics
Yes, to avoid contamination, apply with a brush only used for Formula-8. Keep Formula-8 from freezing prior to application. During winter months, Fluoramics may put a ship hold on Formula-8 until temperatures are warm enough to ship.
Why is LOX-8 better than a cheaper substitute like PTFE tape?Fluoramics
LOX-8 Paste is thicker and therefore normally used to seal the threads in pipe joints. LOX-8 Grease, being thinner, can also be used to lubricate bearings and other surfaces where severe oxidizers are present.
