AirTec Revolution vs. Big Oil
The story is pretty simple: The oil industry is filled with global, multi-billion dollar giant corporations focused on moving massive volumes of low-quality products. The result is inefficiency. Vehicles struggle to get 20mpgs, require oil changes every five thousand miles, and last an average of 8 years or 150,000 miles. Sound familiar? Then it is time to Join the Revolution. The AirTec Revolution is a movement towards quality and a commitment to finding and providing the technology that will ensure a clean and efficient tomorrow. Join today and MAKE YOUR VEHICLE TAKE YOU FARTHER.
Technology: The missing component
Did you ever notice how fast the world is changing? 30 years ago no one knew the word “cell phone,” computers were slow and rare, and a big screen T.V was the weight of a smart car. Yes, the world has come along way, however, when you think about it nearly all of the advancements in the last 30 years have been in the electronics industry. GPS, self-driving cars, and most recently in the news artificial intelligence–All electronically based technologies. So what about other industries—Has Lubrication Technology come as far as it can? Why have the biggest advancements in the Oil Industry been focused on refining technology? What is beyond petroleum-based lubricants?
One of the cornerstones of the AirTec Revolution is Micro-Ceramic Oil by Wagner/AirTec. Micro-Ceramic Oil is a highly specialized product that can be used in engines, gearboxes, and drives. Unlike standard lubricants, micro-ceramic oil bonds and adheres to the surfaces of the engine or gearbox and greatly reduces friction which results in better fuel mileage and less engine wear.
How Micro-Ceramic oil works
All metal, even highly polished metal, is porous as shown in the illustration above. Normal mineral oil and synthetic oils will flow onto these surfaces, but under high stress, pressure, or temperature they are displaced and small amounts of metal on metal contact occur, causing wear and increased friction. However, with a micro-ceramic oil additive, the micro-ceramic particles fill and adhere into the pores on the metal surfaces creating a much smoother surface which reduces friction and wear. Even more impressive is the fact that micro-ceramic particles stay adhered to the metal surfaces even when the oil is not circulating, so startup/cold start wear is greatly reduced! Let us see how Wagner and AirTec Micro Ceramic Oil compare to a top line full synthetic:
Micro Ceramic Oil is the clear winner, boasting much higher use and decomposition temperatures in addition to providing lubrication at temperatures 5 times higher than full synthetic. These numbers are crucial when you factor in that temperatures during combustion reach up to 600 degrees Celsius or 1150 degrees Fahrenheit! Which means, that even with the highest grade of synthetic oil there is very limited lubrication on the cylinder walls after combustion. However, with a micro-ceramic oil additive, that provides lubrication up to 2200 degrees Fahrenheit, wear and friction are greatly reduced greatly extending the lifespan of the engine!
AirTec Micro Ceramic Oil by Wagner Spezialschmierstoffe is truly revolutionizing the world of lubrication.
