Additives for engine
Compositions and additives for engine oil
Ready and filled in a branded bottle engine oil additive “Atomium” consists of balanced combinations of specially crushed minerals of the group of layered silicates (serpentines, talc-chlorites, etc.). in Addition to minerals, the compositions contain a carrier: 99.5 - 95% oil without additives of yellow colour. It should be understood that ready-to-use additives in oil are not a solution, that is, a homogeneous liquid, but a suspension, where the solid substance (crushed minerals) must be distributed as tiny particles in the liquid substance in a suspended (not settled) condition. This is why the solid part on the bottom of the bottle must be thoroughly mixed before use.
How the compounds works
The base of the metal parts of the internal combustion engine, obtained during casting, has a regular crystal lattice. This lattice is able to actively interact with surrounding substances due to free electrons. In the surface layer of metal, this structure is distorted during machining, and during operation (especially in conditions beyond the limits of normal operation: when cold start, overload, or sports driving mode), the surface of the part is covered with carbon, lacquers and oxides. As a result, all this affects the interaction of the metal surface with the carbon chains of the oil, determining the efficiency of its operation. The function of the engine oil is reduced, as a result, the wear rate of parts increases.
In the first stage to the engine additive "Atomium" acts as a mild abrasive. The compound cleans the metal surface from oxides and lacquers, levelling the sharpest protrusions and roughness of the friction surface.
After this, the second stage begins, in which the tribotechnical compound acts as an accelerator of the reaction of diffusion processes, contributing to the joining of metal particles to the surface layer of the part, which are in the working oil. Thus, the tribotechnical compound starts the process of forming a new metal structure, which has a porous structure and consists of the same metal as the part itself. The formed layer has a thickness of up to 10 micrometres. This new structure is able to hold a large number of oil-carbon chains on the surface of the part. As a result, the engine narrows the gaps between the friction surfaces and retains a denser oil layer, which leads to improved operation of the unit. Parameters such as pressure, density of the oil layer, and temperature come into a state of energy balance and the new layer stops growing. But in case of surface wear, the geo-modifier particles re-activate the build-up process to restore the balance of the entire system. The crystals of layered silicates in the "Atomium" tribocompound are one hundred percent (100%) natural mineral and do not react with chemically active additives of the standard package, which allows you to preserve the original properties of the oil.
Effects of application
- Increases the overall resource of engine parts;
- Increases the hydraulic density of the cylinder-piston group (CPG), which means increased power;
- Reduced friction losses, which reduces the consumption of diesel fuel and gasoline;
- Reduced gas break in the crankcase;
- Reduces the consumption and fumes of oil, and this leads, among other things, to a decrease in toxicity and smokiness;
- Lubricating oil is less oxidized and its resource increases;
- The protective layer restores the operation of hydraulic compensators;
- Cylinder compression is restored, which also leads to smooth engine operation: noise and vibration are reduced;
- The zone of hydrodynamic friction is expanding.
