From POLYTRON Manufacturer

Welcome To The Cutting Edge Of Lubrication Technology

POLYTRON is state of the art line of lubricants that has been used for several years now in many industrial, racing and military applications.

Why are POLYTRON products superior to the other products on the market?

Conventional lubricants are based upon maintaining high strength and thickness of oil film, or on introducing an EP (Extreme Pressure) protective deposit between moving mating surfaces to resist failure resulting in scoring, seizure or accelerated wear.

When observing mating friction surfaces under high magnification one can see that they are actually full of "mountains" and "valleys" . These "mountains" penetrate the oil-film between the mating friction surfaces, and collide with each other. These collisions in the micro level translates into "friction" in the macro-level. Some of these collisions result in metal particles breaking away from the colliding "mountains". The breaking away metal particles in the micro-level are what we see as "wear" process in the macro-level.

When POLYTRON is applied, under heat and pressure generated by friction, some of its elements impregnate metallurgically the crystal structure of the metal itself at its mating friction surfaces. As a result of the metallurgical process, a very thin layer of the original metal is converted into a new significantly harder metal that has a wear-life at least 100 times longer than the original. This newly formed layer of metal protects the original "softer" metal beneath it from any wear.

Since the protective layer is very thin, it is as flexible as a very thin sheet metal. Although during collisions the protective layer does not allow metal particles to break away, its flexibility allows the metal underneath to be pushed horizontally by the horizontal force generated by collisions. Thus the metal on the "mountains" is "pushed" into the "valleys" flattening out the friction surface, resulting in smooth polished-like surface that has a much lower friction coefficient. This advanced technology that allows the original rough friction surfaces to be transformed into hard, smooth polished-like surfaces is one of the main characteristics that makes POLYTRON so different from other lubricants on the market today.
