Coating Confirmation. Technical Counselling Service of the Technical University of Ulm.
The effectiveness of HIT-FLON® is based on a coating of polytetrafluorethylene on metal surfaces
coming in contact with the engine lubrication system.
This coating was demonstrated by scanning electron microscopic analysis. The microanalytical evaluation demonstrated the fluorine content of the coating.
One result of the coating was established to be a reduction in wear due to the oil additive.
In full engine test a 54% reduction of wear of a piston ring surface was demonstrated by radio isotope analysis.
