Tufoil FAQs

Tufoil FAQs

Will Tufoil Gun-Coat prevent corrosion as well as lubricate?

Tufoil Gun-Coat is engineered to prevent corrosion, carbon, lead and copper build-up, while providing the superior lubrication of Tufoil Technology.

Will Tufoil Gun-Coat leave an oily residue?

No, Tufoil Gun-Coat is solvent free so it will not become tacky or evaporate. Gun-Coat is engineered for a thin boundary film that will adsorb into the metal.

When should I apply Tufoil Gun-Coat to my firearms?

Tufoil Gun-Coat should be applied to a clean firearm. The precision tip applicators allow for a pin-point precision application. Less is more.

Where on my firearms should I use Tufoil Gun-Coat?

After cleaning your firearm use Gun-Coat to lubricate. Apply to all moving parts, slides, springs, trigger mechanisms, inside and outside of the barrel. The precision tip applicators allow for a pin-point precision application. Less is more.

Are there any types of oil/greases that Tufoil for Industrial Use should not be used with?

Yes, Tufoil for Industrial Use should not be used with glycol-based oils. To test compatibility, blend or shake one ounce of Tufoil with ten ounces of the host oil. If there is separation Tufoil is not compatible with the host oil.

Can we use Tufoil for Industrial Use in our central lubrication system?

Yes, Tufoil for Industrial Use can be used to improve the efficiency of your central lubrication system if the system is using a petroleum or synthetic based oil. You will want to be sure to add Tufoil for Industrial Use at a ratio of one-part Tufoil to ten parts host oil.

For what type of industrial applications is Tufoil for Industrial Use effective?

All applications that utilize a petroleum or synthetic oil for lubrication. This includes machinery, compressors, gearboxes, standard transmissions, pumps, forklift trucks, hydraulic systems (except those using glycol-based oils,) stamping and deep drawing.

Will Tufoil for Industrial Use lower the operating temperature of machinery?

Yes, Tufoil for Industrial Use is formulated to reduce friction and operating temperatures.

In what ways will Tufoil for Industrial Use improve machinery operation in my facility?

Tufoil for Industrial Use is formulated to protect against scoring and scratching in operations such as stamping and deep drawing. When used in machinery, Tufoil for Industrial Use reduces wear, noise, vibration and friction while improving production quality and minimizing downtime. Tufoil for Industrial Use reduces heat and operating oil temperatures, lowers starting torque, extends oil-drain intervals, eliminates sheet metal cracking, cuts waste, and speeds up production.

Can Tufoil for Industrial Use be used in any gearbox?

Tufoil for Industrial Use can be used in gearboxes that contain petroleum or synthetic based oils. Tufoil for Industrial Use cannot be used with gearboxes containing glycol-based oils.

What makes Tufoil Engine Treatment so effective in helping engines run better and longer?

Tufoil’s proprietary blend of high-end synthetics and PTFE particles help your motor run more efficiently with less internal friction and decreased operating temperatures.

Will Tufoil Engine Treatment increase the interval between oil changes?

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?

Tufoil is compatible with all 4-cycle engines that utilize standard or synthetic oils. In the past, we did not recommend using Tufoil with wet clutches, but we are currently testing this and preliminary results suggest using Tufoil with wet clutches may not be a problem.

What are the primary benefits of using Tufoil Engine Treatment in a car or truck?

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.

How does Fluoramics use PTFE?

Fluoramics’ products are engineered with PTFE to assist our formulations in three main functions.

  1. PTFE will not be wetted by water or products containing water, so PTFE is used in Fluoramics products to displace water from metal surfaces.
  2. PTFE is very non-reactive, so it can safely be used with all kinds of hazardous chemicals involved in the industries we serve.
  3. PTFE has one of the lowest coefficients of friction, so it aids in our lubrication technology.
What is PTFE?

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?

Tufoil should not be used with glycol-based oils.

Why should I use Tufoil Engine Treatment instead of other engine treatments?

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!

How often should I change my oil?

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?

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?
