TÜV-tested additive - looks interesting

Hi, Robert.

Did you go to the British web page?
I have no personal interest in this product.
If you want any info, just look it up.

If you search for any particular info and can't find it, just contact the producer/seller.

I have actually ordered it, and will try it in a friends car.
Richard Hook, I don't know if you saw the American link for this product, a couple of posts before yours?

I don't say you need to go to Europe, I just mad a reader aware that he could find more info on the British home page.

It is always an advantage to read all posts, before you post a comment to a tread.
Besides, Richard, I don't see any testing of Polytron, from a testing facility that is acknowledged all over the world, as well as being independent.

Without it, it is just another Snake oil(for most people).

The testing of Nanovit(Nanooil), from TÜV, was the reason why I found it interesting and posted it here.
Johnpr3 & Jonny-b; While you got a good laugh out of polytron's video featuring destructive testing I only viewed number results from TUV's pages. How does TUV test for wear? I have a machine similar to the one in our video that I use to seize bearing material with a wide range of engine oils. You would be surprised which engine oils do not stand up to wear criteria.
Actually on a destructive test none of them do. There are some engine oils like Royal Purple that will not seize the race bearing at all but not without substantial damage to the test bearing. I enclose 2 pics of bearings of which the 1st was seized at 450 Inch pounds of torque and the resulting damage. The second picture is the result of adding polytron metal treatment to the same oil as the 1st picture. A force of 1200 inch pounds was applied to the same bearing that was flipped over and did not seize. The test engine oil was Mobil 1 synthetic. The promises of Nanovit & Polytron are similar, achieved in different ways. I have tested other prominent additives. They don't work.
Hi, Richard Hook.
I had no intention of ridiculing you and Polytron.
It can be very good, but I haven't tested it.

However, I have learned that testimonials doesn't hold water, in most cases.
There are exceptions, and I happened to stumble upon one of them, just before I ordered Nanovit.

I just want a product to be tested by a neutral, well known, independent and reliable company.
You can not "buy" results from TÜV.
You ask how TÜV test for wear.
I think they explained it very well in the PDF file were they tested for wear.
I have mentioned it before, but you can find it in "test reports" on the left, on their homepage.
after looking quite hard I found that they probably use a pin to disk tribometer. Tribometer is defined as any instrument used to determine friction in 2 moving bodies. Ok, our instrument doesn't cost $20,000 but does effectively demonstrate oil lubricity in 2 mated metal surfaces. I suspect that visual results aren't visual convincing because of the nature of the test and the not so honest nature of many people out there. I bought a machine to convince myself of the truthfulness of this product. I am still impressded with the results and consequently have used these products in my vehicles and around my home for 3 years. by the way did my pics show up as an attachment?
Hi, Richard.
I didn't see any pictures as an attachment, but I don't know if others do.

Another thing; yesterday, I e-mailed Polytron, after I went to the homepage you provided.
I asked them where to buy Polytron, here in Europe.

I haven't received an answer yet.

At the same time, I also e-mailed Nanovit in Germany, asking about a technical question.

I got their reply early this morning.
Hi Richard,
I didn't me to offend you. It is just that the image of a guy with a lab coat yanking on a torque wrench reminded me of the infomercials of the past. The demo looks neat, but is it a valid test? Is it an ASTM recognized test? Perhaps it is recognized by another governing body...I don't know. For the record, I have never used an aftermarket engine or oil treatment. That doesn't mean they don't work.
johnpr3; well admittadly the lab coat thru me off as well. As indicated by my earlier post I bought the same machine to dispell any doubts I had about this product. As indicated earlier a tribometer is a machine capable of creating friction between two metal surfaces. I added 2 photos as attachments but they didn't come thru. I'll try again
Do you really WANT to be near chemicals that are only available in Bulgaria, Serbia, and Montenegro?

I met a couple of very high up Bulgarian engineers once. The head of manufacturing for some state own company was in awe at our spent fuel storage canisters.

Because they were SMOOTH and ROUND!!!!!

I'll pass.
Polytron is sold in the above-mentioned countries, but is also sold in the US and Canada(and other countries too, I guess).
I don't want to exclude a product just because it is sold in a particular country.

I found the info about it, interesting, and I would really like to see what it can do.
Hi, again.

I finally was able to test drive the Toyota, earlier today.
I tested it up the same hill, as I did before I put the Nanovit in the engine.

I started the acceleration test in 5th gear at 60 km/h, as I also did before Nanovit.

Between the two points in the hill(some 250 meters), it was able to accelerate from 60 to 78 km/h without.
Now, it was able to accelerate from 60 to 88 km/.
It is a marked difference also in the upper RPM-band.

It seem to be working.

Another thing to considder, is that this car had been doing one clean and two rinses with Auto-Rx, before it was treated with Nanovit.

Now, this Nanovit will last 150 000 kilometers(almost 100 000 miles), so I think it is better bang for the buck, when you also consider its ability to clean the engine(and keep it clean).

This is something I will use in the next car I get.
