EXTRALUBE ZX1 Micro Oil Metal Treatment
EXTRALUBE ZX1 Micro Oil Metal Treatment is our Flagship product and it has become one of the UKs fastest selling metal treatments in the UK. Often confused with “ Engine Oil Additives” EXTRALUBE ZX1 Micro Oil Metal Treatment does not mix with your chosen oil, or change it in any way it merely uses it as a carrier to reach the metal surfaces within the engine or gearbox where it will impregnate and thermally bond, smoothing out the surface promoting smoother running along with protection for all of your components.
EXTRALUBE ZX1 Micro Oil Metal Treatment can also be used a fuel treatment and will enhance upper cylinder lubrication which in turn helps to reduce harmful emissions from your exhaust.
Available in 1 Litre, 500ml, 250ml and 100ml bottles
*Caution.* We are currently looking at the makeup of the new Hybrid Oils. Until we have further data available we do not advise treating Hybrid Engines and Hybrid Oils with ZX1. However, we are aware these engines have been treated in the past without any issues*

EXTRALUBE ZX1 Micro Oil Metal Treatment is a friction eliminator, it is a particle free fluid which remains in colloidal suspension within the lubricating medium be it oil, petrol, diesel or even water, until a relatively low temperature activates the unique thermo chemical bonding process.
Unlike conventional “additives”EXTRALUBE ZX1 MICRO OIL METAL TREATMENT FRICTION ELIMINATOR is a radical departure in the hi-tech field of low frictional wear technology providing:
The introduction of EXTRALUBE ZX1 Micro Oil Metal Treatment does not change the properties of the standard lubricating medium and is suitable for use in all Petrol, LPG and two stroke engines; transmissions, differentials, and hydraulic systems.
Comprehensively tested and proven by the U.K Atomic Energy Authority and the Japanese Lubricating Society, EXTRALUBE ZX1 Micro Oil Metal Treatment defeated the crucial "Four Ball" wear test and has repeatedly exceeded the limits of the worlds standfard equipment for friction and wear testing.
EXTRALUBE ZX1 Micro Oil Metal Treatment purely uses any lubrication medium irrespective of type to transport itself to the componets, be it any form of oil, fuel, grease and even water. It is the non- particulate micro oil technology that does not contain P.T.F.E Molybdenum etc, therefore it cannot compromise tolerances or clog filters and oilways.
How is EXTRALUBE ZX1 Micro Oil Metal Treatment different?
Oils refined from crudes are not particularly good lubricants. Over the years, additives and complete synthetics have been developed to improve lubricity, film strength, stability, and anti-corrosion and cleaner operation.
Even so, it has been demonstrated that friction co-efficient can be further enhanced by introducing surface modifiers into oils. These are traditionally polymer or metallic compounds with perceptible thickness.
EXTRALUBE ZX1 Micro Oil Metal Treatment is a more elegant solution to the problems of friction wear; it is FREE ENTIRELY of congealing agents which can affect flow rates, design tolerances and the working or small active components.
The re-engineered hydrocarbon molecules in EXTRALUBE ZX1 Micro Oil Metal Treatment actually synergise with ferrous and non ferrous metals on contact, forming a complex long-chain molecular bond which is extremely slippery and tenacious.
EXTRALUBE ZX1 Micro Oil Metal Treatment acts as an intermediate, microscopic rubbing surface which continues to function after the oil film has broken down. It is measurably effective at extreme pressures and temperatures.
EXTRALUBE ZX1 Micro Oil Metal Treatment has been formulated to avoid harmful side-effects, not only uncontrolled surface build up but contains no solids or sediments and is compatible with metals, non metals and all known lubricants including synthetics when applied and directed.
How to use EXTRALUBE ZX1 Micro Oil Metal Treatment
A clear fluid that thermally bonds to metal surfaces reducing friction and wear on these surfaces.
Remove the Oil filter cap and add the required amount of Extralube ZX1 as described in the instruction leaflet.
Remove the Oil filter cap and add the required amount of EXTRALUBE ZX1 Micro Oil Metal Treatment as described in the instruction leaflet.
Add EXTRALUBE ZX1 Micro Oil Metal Treatment to your gearbox oil up to a ratio of 5% to the oil capacity of the gearbox, this also applies to the differential/ final drive.
Extralube ZX1 is suitable for use in an automatic transmission when no metal to metal friction plates are present; most modern automatics have composite fibre to metal plates. We suggest adding ZX1 at a ratio of 2.5% to the oil capacity of the transmission.
Fuel Tank Petrol and Diesel
To enhance upper cylinder lubrication and help reduce harmful emission we suggest the following: Initial treatment add 10ml per 10 litres of fuel, this is only a suggestion you might feel that your engine would benefit from treatment at shorter intervals, of course any excess will benefit the exhaust system by smoothing the internal surfaces helping exhaust gases to dissipate quicker.
Two –Stroke, Motorcycle, Out Board motor, Chain-Saw or Lawn Mower.
With all two-stroke petrol engines, add a 5% ratio of ZX1 to your existing two-stroke oil, and then mix that oil to the petrol as recommended by the oil manufacturer.
With Chain-Saws, you can also add a 5% ratio of ZX1 to your sticky chain oil. It will keep the saw sharper longer and will make the chain guide bar last longer.
ZX1 Can be applied neat on to a Motorcycle chain
The best way to treat chains is to apply hot ZX1 (ZX1 bonds at 60ºC) to a clean chain with a clean paint brush, let it penetrate and bond then after using the bike whilst the chain is still warm from use, spray with C60, this will keep the chain in good shape and reduce drag as you will not need a sticky chain lube, some of our customers have remarked that it dramatically reduces chain stretch.
Most customer who treat their chains in this way heat the ZX1 by placing a some ZX1 into a clean tin, within a pan of boiling water so that it gets to approximately 100˚C.
ZX1 Micro Oil Metal Treatment can be used anywhere that friction occurs, such as in engineering applications to extend tool life whether milling, grinding or using a lathe. ZX1 can be added to your normal soluble or non-soluble cutting oils as it works well in water or water-based lubricants as it does with engine lubricants.
