The World’s Most Efficient Lubricant!

 

Fluoramics Inc., world-renowned manufacturer of high quality saltwater repellant lubricants, greases, and oxygen compatible sealants. Tufoil, award winning engine oil treatment, is a must-have in the marine industry.

 

Tufoil was created by NJIT Inventor’s Hall of Fame inductee Frank G. Reick and was listed as “The World’s Most Efficient Lubricant” by the Guinness Book of World Records in 1996 -- Tufoil still holds that record to date.  Tested by the U.S. Government’s National Bureau of Standards (now known as NIST), Tufoil has a steel-on-steel surface friction of 0.029, which made it the slipperiest substance known to man.

 

The desire to contribute to a cleaner atmosphere led Frank down a 10-year path in the development of Tufoil.  When Tufoil engine lubricant mixes with your ships engine oil, the oil is changed into a highly efficient engine treatment with an extremely low surface friction. This Tufoil-enhanced oil coats the vital, moving engine parts, resulting in a faster cranking speed in any weather and better fuel mileage.  The Canadian Government conducted testing substantiating these results at Kaptest Engineering Laboratories. Wear characteristics are greatly reduced. The overall results are astounding!

 

Though Tufoil has been in the worldwide market for more than 25 years, the shipping industry has only been aware of the dramatic effects of Tufoil Marine on their marine diesels for the past decade. The results have been nothing short of spectacular. In fact, Tufoil Marine can be found in the gearboxes and engines of tugboats. Major tugboat companies,  located in harbors throughout the country, find our products indispensable.  Tufoil Marine has even been called an “insurance policy”!

 

Tufoil Marine is incredibly economical and can extend the life of your engine! Add just 10% Tufoil  Marine to your regular oil in the engine, after break-in, and see what a difference it will make. Using Tufoil Marine translates into big dollar savings, not only in the cost of running your engine, but in maintenance and repair bills as well.  Tufoil Marine stops overheating problems in reduction gears, barge pumps, angle drives and more. Less friction equates to less wear and lower temperatures. It is also used in the lower unit gearbox where the propeller is located.  The gearbox runs under constant load, and with the use of Tufoil Marine, you get stable load and stable temperatures.  Overheating issues become a problem of the past.

 

Tufoil Marine contains rust and corrosion inhibitors that will help to protect a marine engine whether it is running or shut down. The fear of saltwater is gone!

 

Fluoramics Inc. is located in Mahwah, NJ, and has been engineering leading lubricant products since 1967. Their product line is distributed in numerous countries throughout the world. Fluoramics Inc. manufactures several variations of their Tufoil formula: including Lubit-8, GunCoat, Lightning Grease, Hi-Temp Grease and HinderRUST. Distributors of these products have discovered a multitude of uses for them in motors, gearboxes, engines, OEM (original equipment manufacturer) machines and pumps.  These lubricant products are also widely used on musical instruments, fine gears and as a rust/corrosion inhibitor.

 

Tufoil can be purchased in various sizes and formulations for use in the marine, automotive, trucking, equipment, motorcycle, off-road and racing industries.
