\"Ceramic Power Liquid\"...any good?

here's the link...forget the "how-good-this-product-is" BS talk on the site and think about the product itself.
www.ceramicpowerliquid.com


I found this thing in Spain and also here in Portugal. In theory, doesn´t look too bad. It seems to consist of small (0.2 micron???) balls of ceramic that coat the inside of the engine and are intended to reduce the friction inside it, with all the obvious benefits...

It is different from the Teflon-type additives...

The annouced benefits are obviously exagerated, but I would like to know your oppinions...Is it worth a second look?

Antoher thing: for those who can, read the non-english versions.They are more detailed.

No way am I gonna put sand into my engine oil. It may be fine sand, but it's sand nevertheless. I can't see how it would act as anything other than a severe abrasive.

I'd save the CeramicPower for the turbo's ball bearings.


Seriously, if it walks like a duck, swims like a duck, sleeps like a duck, and quacks like a duck, then it's probably a Ceramic Ball-Bearing Duck!

On the other hand, it might beat 20 year old tractor fuel!

Re: \"Ceramic Power Liquid\"...any good?

The best way to eliminate engine wear with a submicronic bypass oil filter. In the United States we have several different brands. I can't imagine ceramic balls 0.2 micron. Cigarette smoke particles are 0.1 microns approximate. About the smallest particle that can be removed by the full flow filter is 30 microns. Most engine wear is caused by abrasives between 5 and 10 microns. Use a good oil and keep it clean. Forget about the additives.

Re: \"Ceramic Power Liquid\"...any good?

Nope, not worth a second look. Is there really a process that can manufacture real quality ceramic spheres that small? Would such spheres really provide a benefit? This is much smaller than the cushion provided by pressurized oil in the bearings, and not as durable or as slippery.

If they were doing as they claim, then it would really be as GoFaster says: you'd be putting sand in the oil.

They're counting on you believing and not checking. I'm not believing.

Don't give them any more of your time!

Re: \"Ceramic Power Liquid\"...any good?

Well, after double-checking I am not very convinced with this also. I was just checking for curiosity...

0.2 micron is about the size of the largest virus and is smaller than any bacteria!!! I don´t believe the can manage to make this balls so small.

Well, I´m be continuing the always frustating search for decent cheap mods and melhorations...

Absolutely useless stuff! If it has any effect at all it would simply grind your engine into bits. But if the particles are really that small they'll probably just circulate and accomplish nothing. I wouldn't give it a second thought.
