EXTRALUBE ZX1 Micro Oil Metal Treatment is a friction eliminator.
It is often confused with "Oil Additives for engines", when, in fact EXTRALUBE ZX1 Micro Oil is a Metal Treatment therefore different to other engine treatments available on the market today.
It does not contain particulates such as Teflon or P.T.F.E. Molybdenum or Zinc Dialkyldithiophosphate (as quoted by honest john) a common cause of blocked filters and airways has a toxisty level between milk and garden soil and it is not copper corrosive.
EXTRALUBE ZX1 Micro Oil Metal Treatment does not change the properties of the oil, or other native lubricant, but chemically bonds to the metal surfaces, modifying the friction surfaces of the metal. It allows the oil (Team ZX1 do not wish to rubbish the oil currently being used, as it needs this oil) to do its job even better and the significant benefits result in:-

EXTRALUBE ZX1 Micro Oil Metal Treatment can be used in engines, gearboxes ( manual and automatic) and fuel tanks. It has been tested by the most rigorous testing procedures using standard industrial tests that are the benchmark of friction and wear lubrication performance worldwide such as the Falex Test, Four Ball Test, Timken Test and a variety of others. Performed by: The Atomic Energy Authority, the National Centre of Tribology, Inchape Testing Services and Caleb Bret.
All ZX1 products carry a N.A.T.O. stock number (Nato Manufacturing code U8809) and ZX1 in only a 5% ratio added to an engine oil out-performed all other lubricants by a big margin and is certainly far more flexible than other lubricants available today. EXTRALUBE ZX1 Micro Oil Metal Treatment has also been proven in the field by motor racing teams, rally teams, bike racing teams, the commercial, offshore drilling and marine sectors.
There are are 4 unique products in our range
The Flagship EXTRALUBE ZX1 Micro Oil Metal Treatment - available in 5 sizes 100ml, 250ml, 500ml, 1 litre and 4 litre (available upon request) designed to protect and prolong the life of metal surfaces, smoothing and lubricating, reducing friction, therefore saving energy and fuel and reducing harmful emissions.
C60 Spray Lube supplied in an environmentally friendly 300ml pump applicator " The Engineers Friend" not just a spray lube but an all purpose industrial strength lubricant which as tremendous penetrating and lubricating properties.
C76 35ml handy nozzle applicator - designed for precise application with no waste ideal for lubricating Sewing and Knitting Machines.
Super Grease - a High Temperature Lithium Complex based grease reinforced with ZX1 Micro Oil Metal Treatment
At normal working temperature the EXTRALUBE ZX1 Micro Oil Metal Treatment cleans and treats your engine/equipment by thermally bonding to the wearing surfaces without compromising any design tolerances. A 15 -20 minutes drive completes this simple treatment resulting in less friction, protected components along with increased mpg and reduced emissions.
The Proof is in the Testing
The simple but effective Portable Lubricity Tester is designed to put lubricants of all kinds through their paces. A high-torque motor turns a shaft. The long lever allows a torque to be applied to the bearing, bringing into contact with the spinning shaft. A gauge indicates the force applied to the lever. The lubricant is added to the small sump of the unit, and allowed to do its job on the bearing.
The Portable Lubricity Tester easily and effectively demonstrates the benefits of EXTRALUBE ZX1 Micro Oil Metal Treatment.
Oils refined from crudes are not particularly good lubricants. Over the years, additives and complete synthetics have been developed to improve lubricity, film strength and stability, anti-corrosion and cleaner operation.
Even so, it has been demonstrated that friction co-efficients 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 and wear. ZX1 is ENTIRELY FREE of congealing agents which can affect flow rates, design tolerances and the working of 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 is often referred to as Xado, Slick 50, Snake Oil and many others. This product is not associated with these products whatsoever.
