IS CERMA? A more in depth explanation
Products utilize a ceramic Lubrication Catalyst STM-3 which is designed to be
used on any rigid or semi rigid surface experiencing sliding, rotating or
oscillating harmonic friction. CerMa
is designed to carry loads in excess of
350,000 PSI as well as lubricate at temperatures in excess of 1900 F.
CerMa is a combination of a unique water based ceramic resin and lubricating solid including a ceramic lubricating mole. CerMa combines the durability of a ceramic resin with the lubricity of the ceramic lubricant. CerMa works well in all applications, but performs best where high temperatures, high loads and high speeds are experienced. CerMa is fully capable of carrying the load where normal lubricants and PTFE additives fail.
is 100 % solids, clear in color and acquires a glass finish in use. CerMa
is formulated to provide an approximate cured film thickness of 2 microns or less
of ceramic coating. CerMa is a material that contains no solvents.
PROTECTION ABOVE 1900°F
oils avoid hot metals at approximately 275°F and will oxidize (break down) at
approximately 375 to 425°F. CerMa
treated oil maintains adhesion at base metal temperatures
in excess of 1900°F. It seals
and protects metal with a 2 micron ceramic
coating - treated oil is now attracted to the hot metals.
This feature allows for proper lubrication of hot parts.
a hard ceramic finish that survives impact, as well as expansion and contraction
without separating from the base metal / plastic - this ensures proper
protection whether cold or hot.
LOAD CAPABILITY PROTECTION
lubricating pigments are capable of carrying loads in excess of 350,000 PSI. That’s
times the protection of any oil or additive, including synthetic oils.
& CHEMICAL PROTECTION
is resistant to most chemicals and acids while inhibiting oxidation.
CerMax products will seal all
metal parts with a ceramic coating that will stop the
formation of destructive abrasive carbon moles, also removes deposits that are
already formed. By doing this
CerMa products can stop the wear of the components within your engine
CerMa will reduce the formation of carbon deposits as well as stopping destructive HARMONICS. This alone has shown CerMa products to far exceed any other lubrication product on the market today.
WITHIN YOUR ENGINE
moving assembly produces Harmonics.
a tuning fork the rotating assembly within your engine will produce harmonics
that will rob you of power by causing imbalances within the moving
parts. Harmonics will lead to the
destruction of bearings within your engine.
Engine harmonics will cause the bearings within your water pump, alternator,
a/c, belt rider pulleys, to fail faster than they should.
CerMa products put a stop to
internal engine harmonic generation - this feature alone will save you in
future repair needs, saving benefits by way of reclaimed horsepower,
and lower fuel demand requirements.
is a unique system that will form a
protective layer of ceramic within any lubrication system requiring constant
flow or wetting to protect the parts from wear and oxidation from the elements.

frequently asked questions
What is CerMa?
How does CerMa work?CerMa seals and protects metal for superior lubrication of hot parts. CerMa-treated oil can maintain adhesion to hot metal in excess of 1900º F. Normal oil avoids metal at 275º and will oxidize at 375-425º.
The hard ceramic finish will expand and contract without separating from the metal which ensures protection in both hot and cold conditions.
CerMa is extremely strong and can withstand pressures in excess of 350,000 PSI. That is over 20 times the protection of any oil, additive or synthetic oil.
CerMa's advanced and entrenched properties provide for enhanced lubrication which allows the engine to run smoothly and cleanly, as well as providing for increased power.
Moreover, the micro-embedded CerMa properties can be maintained not only at high temperatures but also exist on the engine parts after the engine stops running.
This effect is in stark contrast to the inadequate filming of motor oil which results in a condition referred to as "dry-start". Because motor oil drains off the engine parts when the engine is not running, an inadequate layer of lubricant causes engine parts considerable wear each time the engine is started.
Can CerMa increase engine horsepower?Yes! To compare horsepower of an engine with CerMa, versus the same engine without CerMa, we have conducted numerous tests these past 5 years, including, for example, a test on a 1998 JEEP Grand Cherokee Laredo 4.0 liter 6-cylinder engine. The engine was measured using a Dynajet Model 248C Dynamometer.
In the first test, 5 quarts of 10W-30 oil were put in the engine WITHOUT CerMa. The engine was accelerated from 0 to 5200 RPM and measured at increments of 250 RPM. The gear ratio was recorded as 49 RPM/MPH.
In the second test, we added 2 ounces of CerMa to the existing oil, resulting in a CerMa concentration of approximately 0.58%. Again, the engine was accelerated from 0 to 5200 RPM, and readings were taken at increments of 250 RPM. The gear ratio was recorded as 48RPM/MPH.
The test proved an average increase of 8.4 horsepower when CerMa was added to the oil. Also, the addition of CerMa increased the maximum by 4.3 horsepower. (See Documentation Section)
Can CerMa increase engine compression and fuel economy?In 2005, a road test on a truck with a Diesel CAT 430hp engine was conducted by the Canadian Hydrogen Energy Company Ltd. The road test simulated normal highway driving conditions experienced by most truck drivers across the United States and Canada. This "real world" test enabled accurate recording of a number of factors including; fuel consumption, mileage, weight, weather conditions, and tire pressure.
The use of CerMa provided excellent results in fuel economy. Within 100 miles of adding CerMa, fuel economy increased by 16.15%. This result showed that CerMa had an immediate positive effect on the combustion chamber by increasing compression in the engine and increasing the efficiency of the fuel ignition system.
The best results for a diesel engine do not occur until there is at least 500 to 1000 miles of CerMa use in the crankcase.
As for gasoline engines, various tests have been conducted that have generated a wide range of results from 3.81% to 21% increase in fuel economy. The car's make and model, as well as driving conditions and driver's habits, have caused the increase in fuel economy to vary.
Why is the reduction of vibration and noise in your engine important?Like a tuning fork, the moving parts within your engine will produce vibrations that create noise called HARMONICS.
Harmonics will rob your engine of power by causing an imbalance within the engine. Engine harmonics will also cause accelerated wear on bearings in your water pump, alternator, air-conditioning, and belt idler pulleys.
CerMa will stop harmonics thus protecting your engine's parts from wear and will prevent untimely repairs.
Why is the reduction of emission gases important?In populated regions of the U.S. and the world, gas and diesel powered vehicles are major contributors of pollution as millions of vehicle on the road add up. Pollution comes from by-products of the combustion process (exhaust) and from the evaporation of the fuel itself.
Gasoline and diesel fuels are mixtures of hydrocarbons: compounds which contain both hydrogen and carbon atoms. In a "perfect engine", oxygen in the air would convert ALL the hydrogen in the fuel to water and ALL the carbon in the fuel to carbon dioxide. Nitrogen in the air would remain unaffected.
Unfortunately, the combustion process has not been "perfect" and gas and diesel engines emit several types of pollutants.
• HYDROCARBON (HC): Hydrocarbon emissions result when fuel molecules do not burn or only partially burn. Hydrocarbons react to nitrogen oxide and sunlight to create ground-level ozone, a major component of smog. Smog can irritate the eyes, damage the lungs, and aggravate respiratory problems. It is our most widespread and intractable urban pollution problem. A number of hydrocarbons are also toxic with potential to cause cancer.
• NITROGEN OXIDE (NOx): Under the high pressure and temperature conditions in the engine, nitrogen and oxygen atoms in the air react to form various nitrogen oxides. Nitrogen oxide, like hydrocarbons, is a precursor to the formation of ozone.
• CARBON MONOXIDE (CO): Carbon monoxide is a product of incomplete combustion and occurs when carbon in the fuel is partially oxidized rather than fully oxidized to carbon dioxide (CO2). In humans, carbon monoxide reduces the flow of oxygen in the bloodstream and is dangerous to persons with heart disease.
Until CerMa, these emission problems have attempted to be solved by mechanical changes to the internal combustion engine. Catalytic converters and sophisticated emission control systems, as well as tighter tailpipe emissions standards, have improved the control of emissions, but the increase in travel miles has offset much of the emission control progress.
In tests, conducted by an independent laboratory, approved by the EPA and California Air Resources Board (CARB), exhaust concentrations of hydrocarbons, (HC), carbon monoxide (CO2), and Nitrogen oxide (NOx) were measured. The following vehicle engines were tested before and after CerMa were poured in the engines. 5 quarts of Pennzoil 10/30 were used.

A "Smoke Test" (Opacity) was conducted
on the Diesel truck's stack exhaust. This is a test the State of California
conducts to measure particulates in the exhaust. The measuring device is on a
pole and measures the smoke/exhaust across two points using laser light
refraction. The test is repeated several times.
DIESEL TRUCK-1992 COUMN ENGINE (350 HP)
After the initial baseline test was taken without CerMa, 16 ounces of CerMa was added to the engine and later tests were performed. After driving the truck for 100 miles, the readings indicated that 100% of the diesel exhaust particulates had been removed.
These test results support the conclusion that the use of CerMax, not only dramatically reduces harmful emission gasses, but also improves engine efficiency (i.e. provides more thorough combustion of the fuel in the engine)

How does CerMa protect my engine?CerMaxwill seal all metal parts which will then stop the formation of destructive abrasive carbon moles. CerMa also removes existing carbon deposits. After your initial application of CerMa, we recommend that you drive for a minimum of 500 to 1000 miles before changing the oil in order to flush out the carbon deposits that CerMa removed from the surfaces within your engine.
CerMax will also lengthen the service life of lubricant, so motor oil changes need not be as frequent. After 2-3 oil changes, check the color of your oil (AMBER=continue to use existing oil, BLACK=time to change oil)
CAUTION! NEVER PUT A MAINTENANCE DOSE OF CerMa IN YOUR TRANSMISSION.
What is the Maintenance Dose (MD) for?CerMa gives you the option of a maintenance dose. We found that excess CerMa floating in the oil improves fuel economy so when the oil is changed, the extra is removed. After an oil change, some customers have noticed a reduction in fuel economy. Due to the variance in fuel economy among vehicles, we are leaving the decision of adding MD up to you.
The 1.25 oz CerMa Maintenance Dose (MD) has two purposes: 1) 1 oz of CerMa oil based is designed to blend with oil to enhance fuel economy. 2) .25 oz. of CerMa original formula will ensure that all of the engine surfaces have been embedded with 2 microns of CerMa. Occasionally, the prior carbon buildup is so great that an additional dosage is needed to remove the remaining carbon and penetrate the engine surface.
CAUTION! NEVER PUT A MAINTENANCE DOSE OF CERMA IN YOUR DRIVETRAIN.
We have also tested CerMa on motorcycles, and similar to cars and truck engines, horsepower increased and engine performance improved.
