TriboTex Car Repair Treatment FAQ

Is it safe?

Yes, it was developed by experience scientists and has undergone rigorous testing. It meets standards set out by ASTM and the API. The TriboTEX company is completely transparent about the testing it's undergone. 

How do I use it?

It's a liquid and comes in a one time use tube so you can put it right into your engine oil. You can do it yourself! Just add it to you engine oil after your next oil change.

How does it work?

Conceptually the technology is straight forward. The material science however is quite sophisticated; engineered, synthetic nanosheets are designed to be slick on one side and sticky on the other. During normal engine operation, when added to oil, these nanosheets attach to metal surfaces (sticky side down), particle by particle, leaving the slick sides facing outward. After 500 miles, of normal driving, internal components are coated with a porous, lubricious tribofilm exhibiting excellent embedibility and oil retention. The slippery surface contains select catalysts, incorporated by design, facilitating the formation of a Diamond-Like Carbon (DLC) cap on top. 

Is this the same thing as using Seafoam on your engine?

TriboTEX and Seafoam are different types treatments. Seafoam is aimed at cleaning carbon deposits off your engine and is mostly alcohol. TriboTEX builds a protective and wear reversing diamond-like carbon coating on the moving parts in your engine, extending its life and improving its performance.

My car has 140,000 miles, can I use TriboTEX?

Yes, this repair treatment was made to help with cars that already have existing engine ware so it has more dramatic improvement results on older cars with higher miles.
