FriktionTek® Ceramic Treatments for Commercial Trucking & Fleets
Increasing operational efficiency by reducing unscheduled down-time and repair costs
Reducing oil blow-by
Maintaining fleet at optimal performance
Reducing impact of rising fuel costs
Mitigating environmental impact of harmful emissions to comply with local and federal guidelines.
FriktionTek® is the best treatment available for diesel engines, transmissions, hydraulic systems and differentials. The technology combines the best attributes of ceramics and metals to reduce friction, heat and wear. For long haul tractors, case studies show:
Lower Fuel Costs – Using FriktionTek® will typically reduce fuel consumption by 5-7% and up to 30% when idling. View our SAE Fuel Consumption Test
Reduced Emissions – Lowers CO and CH emissions up to 100% and CO2 emissions up to 30%
Lower Maintenance Costs – FriktionTek's cermet surface is far more durable and less susceptible to wear than metal parts.
Reduces unscheduled downtime and the loss of revenue associated with it. You can monitor FriktionTek® by XADO's wear protection through independent oil analysis.
FriktionTek® applies a ceramic-metal (cermet) coating metal components without the costly and time-intensive teardown of engines, differentials, transmissions, PTO, reefer unit, power steering pumps and power steering boxes.
Increased Compression and Horsepower
Reduced Engine and Transmission Heat
Normalized Oil Blow-by
Reduced Noise and Vibration – providing a smoother ride and less damage from harmonics
FriktionTek® is compatible with any mineral or synthetic oil, grease or fuel grade. It is chemically inert with respect to these substances, and does not affect their viscosity. Oil or grease is the vehicle for FriktionTek® in getting to the friction surfaces.
In real world studies, FriktionTek® treatment lasts more than 65,000 miles.
