CerMet Revitalizes New & Used Parts

In a brand new engine or mechanism with new oil, the mating parts, such as rings and cylinder walls, have specific manufacture and assembly clearances (~10 mkm). However, the oil in these engines or mechanisms does not have enough viscosity or pressure to be able to produce an oil wedge between these parts. So, the metal grinds on metal and the wear out process begins from the first minute of engine start up and continues until parts need to be repaired or replaced. With worn parts CERMET actually rebuilds and repairs the damaged metal surface to like new or better than new condition. CERMET helps with the break-in process and provides part protection better than any other technology in existence today.


Without CERMET, friction pairs undergo a constant self-destructing process. Grains (peaks) of the metal's surface contact each other in a violent exchange between atoms. During this friction process atoms micro-weld together and break apart and eventually weaken and fall off, thus producing metal shavings and particles in the lubricant. This process is also being speeded up and assisted by radical hydrogen ions that diffuse into the metal lattice and cause brittlization. All of this destruction produces the on-going negative effects of increased clearances and decreased performance.

Stage 1

stage 1
During the first stage, the CERMET particles are introduced into the friction zone via the existing lubricant. Utilizing the friction energy as a catalyst, the complex molecules become activated and initiate a physicochemical reaction by diffusing into the surface of the metal. CERMET begins by cleaning the oxidized and/or corrosive surface. Once the surface is clean, CERMET starts to transform the properties of the metal to take on near ceramic properties.

Stage 2

Stage 2
CERMET continues to diffuse itself into the metal lattice and begins building a Ceramic-Metal protective layer. It substitutes the Fe in the metal's surface with Si forming very hard Ceramic-Metal bond. The newly formed layer consists of a highly improved metal surface that is initially very mobile, which allows the surface to adapt to the most energy optimal conditions. Atomic attractors are then formed and the active surface attracts the minute metal particles that are present in the existing lubricant. CERMET then begins to rebuild and repair the metal's surface until optimal conditions are met.

Stage 3

Stage 3
Lastly, the CERMET process further optimizes the metal surface by rearranging the its dislocations to provide the best possible mating conditions. CERMET restructures the metal surfaces up to three hundred microns deep. The grains of the metal become smaller, forming an underlayer strong enough to resist wear. When the process is complete CERMET will have then formed a remarkable Ceramic-Metal protective layer, which is much harder, with much less friction and has dielectric properties to help prevent oxidation and corrosion. This new CERMET surface lasts an extremely long time and will reduce friction and internal losses in any metal-to-metal friction environment.

CerMet is Self-Regulating

The CERMET process can continue even after the oil is changed. CERMET works only when friction exists, and stops when the friction is nearly gone. Revitalization provides individual adjustment of mating parts, and all rubbing surfaces appear to have been coated with a new translucent hardened surface.

Until now, the only solution for an engine overhaul was disassembly and mechanical intrusion, requiring loss of drive time and costly repairs. With CERMET you repair, revitalize and restore optimal tolerances between moving parts while you drive, or while the mechanism operates, all without down time and disassembly. Moreover, CERMET will extend the life of your engine or parts three to five times longer than normal life expectancy. In theory, continued treatment will extend the life or your parts indefinitely.
