DEFINITION: The CerMet test was conducted under the ASTM 5706 — "Step Load for SRV Machine" procedure. This test is recognized by the automotive industry as the standard test emulating engine conditions and is intended to quickly assess the lubricating properties of the oil in the most severe conditions.

PROCEDURE: The test is performed on a calibrated SRV machine loaded with industry standard specimens — 52100 steel (used in ball bearings) ball on the block. The ball oscillates on the block with the 1 mm stroke under different loads with a 50 Hz frequency. This procedure produces approximately 1 m/s of speed of constant rubbing on the same pinpoint location with an approximate length of 1mm. The block is preheated to 135C and one drop of the standard oil is used at the point of contact.
The ball is then loaded, step-wise, with the bad changing every 2 minutes. The initial break in period is conducted as such: 25N-50N-100N-150N-200N-300N.
The test begins rubbing parts at loads of 25N -50N through to 200N in SON increments, then at 100N steps until the rubbing parts have seized. The actual friction coefficient is measured and plotted throughout the procedure.
Tribology Testing Services conducted 3 tests; First, using only a "Base-Oil", the standard 5W30 Mineral oil currently being used by General Motors as a first fill in their assembly lines; Second, a test was conducted with the same oil plus 1% of the CerMet metal treatment, where the 1% of the CerMet solution was dissolved in the base-oil and then 1 drop of the mixture was used for the test; and Third, a test using only pure CerMet solution.

From the test result plot one can observe that the second test initially traced the base-oil line and then began to depart the base-oil curve after 15 minutes of testing, thus proving that CerMet started to work and effectively lowered the friction coefficient after a brief break-in period. The third test line demonstrates a lowered friction coefficient under all loading conditions, proving that CerMet provides drastically improved lubrication characteristics over normal base-oil. Economically, using the CerMet Nano-Particle Ceramic Conditioner will provide a significant return on investment, through a variety of benefits, while protecting and extending part life far beyond normal expectancies.
