    Default Uniglide and the future

    Yes I can hear all the nay sayers and the ones that shoot all sorts of holes in additives. Yes we have heard all the stories.

    But, I have gotten on board with the marketing and I totally believe in this.

    The idea is also to blend final products. As in lubrcants, that conform to all the API ratings, but also have the Uniglide pre-blended. Currently the defence/attack against Uniglide was/is that it alters the designed performance specs.

    Yes it modifies it. It enhances the lubricity.

    We are not trying to claim any HP gains or even fuel consumption gains. But we do claim durability enhancement. Gearboxes run cooler. Sticky injectors have some extra lubricity. (Yes, I put some in my diesel, as I have a pressure release valve that is getting sticky. Sorted)

    So yes, watch this space. Things are still in the early stages, but there is definite movement here.

    Ok, here are some prices for members.

    Spay is R65 per can and 500ml bottle is R100

    Ok. Movement here.

    I have been appointed as an agent and can offer Uniglide additive and aerosol spray at way cheaper than it will be on the shelf.

    If you have any questions, shoot. Until then, there is plenty to read on FB under the Uniglide page.

    There is more to come, but for now, I can't elaborate.

    That is the nice thing about Uniglide.

    It works literally anywhere. Engine or drive train. Manual or auto.

    There are testimonials of it being used in hydraulic oil on excavators, and then they hydraulic oil runs cooler.

    No ph imbalance. So you can literally add it to anything and you will benefit.

    The Troopie has it everywhere and the engine temp is def more well behaved. I don't have monitors on the drive train, But I am sure they will also be down on temp.

    Won't non gearbox specific additives interfere with synchromesh operation?

    Is it a PTFE based product?

    I used Uniglide many years back. I never kept the vehicles long enough to see if it worked - mind you, the Defender lasted many 100k km, but then many others without did as well. The demos about running an engine without oil once treated was impressive.

    What I still use is the Uniglide spray oil, like Q20. Fantastic stuff!

    Do they still recommend 10% dilution for the first treatment and then a less?

    Hi Henris

    can you please tell us, what is the basic chemical compound of the product, i.e. is it based on chlorinated paraffine? Would be interesting to know.

    I have a Hikux Kztr that had difficulty engaging 1st gear - you had to put it in second and then only would it go into first gear.

    I spoke to Henri and he advises Uniglide.

    We met up 2 days ago and that same evening I did an gearbox and transfer oil change(the old.oil was looking ok) with 12.5% Uniglide.

    Upon a test drive, it was almost immediately that I could feel a difference! This gearbox is now silky smooth!

    A mate has duly claimed my extra bottle for his noisy Pajero gearbox - I am awaiting his feedback.

    And it is very affordable.

    Thus, yes, I am impressed!!!

    What was my first reply to Thabo.... Told you so.

    That is exactly the same experience I have had on numerous applications. This stuff works.

    Yesterday I was cutting an aluminium pulley on the lathe and as soon as I put some Multispray onto the cutting bit, (drill, boring bar, etc) the job is immediately quiet and the cut is smoother. Also no binding of aluminium on the cutting edge, as is usually the case.

    Ill take 2 spray cans Henris, I normally use WD-40 on the lathe and mill when cutting aluminium, but it’s hellish expensive, how do we go about transacting the purchase?
