NanoVit – Optimizing Your Fleet’s Performance

Lowers fuel consumption


Better compression means more power and increased engine efficiency



10% to 12% efficiency gains verified
Reduces maintenance by extending the oil’s lifecycle (4X verified) and
increasing the intervals between oil changes
Extends engine life by reducing friction which increases component
tolerances and life


Savings range from 9% to 14% in over-the-road trucks
Reduce wear and engine vibration
Cuts CO and NOX emissions by over 50%

Reduces CO2 emissions consistent with reduced fuel use
Cost savings and increasing performance all with one product
Advancements through Nanotechnology
Nano-technology – the manipulation of the behaviour of atoms and
their atomic structure to develop new, working atomic material
NanoVit consists of
– Modified silicon oxide (SiO2),
– Aluminum oxide (Al2O3), and
– Plasma-processed graphite (C)
Particles size < 0,000.000.001 meters -the length of 4 atoms
How does NanoVit Work?
Phase One – Delivered by the
system’s oil, Al2O3 cleanses
the boundaries of the friction
surfaces, eliminating
damaging micro-particles
and combustion residue
buildup
Phase Two – A flexible, thin,
elastic layer of nanoparticles is formed under
heat and pressure on the
friction surfaces of the
engine, returning them to
their original geometry
Build up of micro-particles,
combustion residues and
contaminants on a normal
engine surface
TEMP
PRES
Contaminants are flush out
and trapped in the oil filter
and then removed with the
oil change
Silicon oxide
Aluminum oxide
Graphite
A anti-friction coating
remains in the engine after oil
changes, adjusting to
operating conditions,
effectively renewing itself.
This reduction in friction
improves engine
performance, lowers fuel
consumption and emissions
while extending the life of the
engine
Oil
TÜV Thüringen Tested & Verified
German Based Independent Verification Lab

Cleans the engine, improves performance, reduces emissions

Motor oil regains its original properties, as destroyed oil molecules are
regenerated with NanoVit

Completely new type of engine protection - not an oil additive, due to
the structural concept of its mode of action

Lubricating media (i.e. oil) is not influenced or changed by use

The anti-friction layer forms a permanent chemical bond with the
friction-stressed metal surfaces, where friction and wear are reduced
and operational lifetime is prolonged

An engine treated with NanoVit is afforded active wear protection and
is effective under extreme mechanical stress

Damage to engine by NanoVit can be ruled out

Lower Fuel Use

Fuel savings of between 7%-14% are experienced in relation to rpm and
load values

Coefficient of friction decreases through noticeable changes in the new
surface properties and the modified oil film layer

Heat transfer is reduced, reducing wear

Effectively refurbishes worn and gritty surfaces to reset the
manufacturer’s original parameters

Regenerates surfaces, increases surface strength and cleans surface
contaminants

Lowers the friction coefficient through both the new surface properties
and the modification of the properties of the oil-film layer
Smoother Ride – Less Vibration & Noise
TÜV Verification Testing
Improved engine operation is reflected in more power
and a reduction in noise by 0.5dB
More Time Between Oil Changes

Protects lubricant
particle structure and
improves the properties
of the thin-film
lubricant layer

Reduces contaminants
in oil by preventing
surface degeneration
Extends Engine Life
Wear
Increased Resistance to Wear with NanoVit
TÜV Verification Testing
Time/Seconds
Parts treated with NanoVit showed 50% less wear
than those treated with 10W40 motor oil
NanoVit Reduces Maintenance Costs
Decreased maintenance
• Slows down oil degeneration, meaning fewer oil changes and
maintenance cycles.
• Protects from wear due to friction, increasing component tolerances and
lifespan.
Increased wear protection
• Creates an elastic nano-layer to absorb energy without stressing the
surface
• Results in micro-hardening of the surface
Increased lubricant lifespan
• Nano-particles protect lubricant particle structure and improve the
properties of the thin-film lubricant layer
• Reduces contaminants in the oil by preventing surface degeneration
Decreased Emissions – Hydrocarbons
TÜV Verification Testing
Hydrocarbon emissions were reduced by 63% after
NanoVit application
Decreased Emission – Carbon Monoxide
TÜV Verification Testing
Carbon Monoxide emissions were reduced by 85% after
NanoVit application
