Fluoramics Inc., world-renowned manufacturer of high quality lubricants, greases, and oxygen compatible sealants, has found a new application in motor cross bike shocks for its award-winning engine oil treatment, Tufoil. 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 and still holds that record to date. Tufoil has a steel-on-steel surface friction of 0.029, which made it the slipperiest substance known to man.
Dirt bikes and other off-road vehicles have been found to benefit greatly from using Tufoil. As the engines were made more powerful, resulting in a faster and harder ride, Tufoil reduced the friction within the shock absorbers. This allowed the shocks to perform more effectively within the suspension system. Ultimately, the rider can now take full advantage of increased horsepower.
In racing and high-performance vehicles, where every horsepower counts, Tufoil can give a competitive advantage by allowing the engine to reach its maximum potential.
