    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!!!
    How much is the manual gearbox treatment?

    R100 for 500ml, which I think should be enough - really affordable!

    As additives go that's very well priced, is that direct from Henris?

    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.
    Use it for this as well. Using the engine oil additive undiluted also works well well - I have an old handsoap dispensing bottle filled with this at my drill press, and that works well, including drilling stainless steel/

    It is the same treatment. Only diff is that we are bit hesitant of the CVT. That thing has metal cones that the belts lock onto. The FRC adsorbs onto the metal. And it will hinder the binding of the belts.

    On the auto 5% will do the job. It uses fiber plates. So the FRC vill not bond onto that. Same applies to motorbike gearboxes.

    Just a little testimonial.

    Thought I would share this.
    This bearing ran dry. Then ran hot. Spat out the seal and seized. Then broke the belt.
    I sprayed it with some FRC and wiggled it by hand. It came free and now spins freely.
    No I won't reuse it. But the FRC got it moving again.
    So in an emergency, this little guy will take you home.

    Time to enlighten you all to where we are at, at the moment.


    We have revised the labels and packaging. Extended the range as well. We will also supply in 1,000l packs and even be shipping in 23,000l bladders.


    Plenty more to come. So hold onto your hats.

    Feedback from a test sample I sent out to Botswana.
    Bear in mind that Botswana is a country of extremes. Swamps in the N, desert in the S.

    Good morning.
    Some feedback on uniglide oil treatment.
    I have put 500ml in the engine of my hilux d4d. Within +_10km there was a noticeable change in engine clatter. Since the the only engine sound standing out is diesel clatter. I also added +_100ml to the power steering. The vane pump was humming. After a week I drained the oil and refill adding another 100ml, the hum is now just about gone.
    I also added 500ml to my 1996 V6 Prado. Again the engine clatter is gone.
    I have used the Uniglide spray on my rifles to remove rust spots on the barrels. After spraying the rifles I left them for about 2 hours before wiping them with a rough cloth, then with a soft clean cloth. All rust spots were removed and a thin layer of the product remain. No rust has resurfaced in the last 2 months.
    The momentum is def getting there. The more people use it, the more they like it.

    I found the spray version at my local hardware store. I've used it all over the place on squeaky hinges and various power tools, vices, clamps & the dreaded sticky shifter.

    So far, it certainly beats the old trio of Q20, WD40 or Tool-in-a-Can.

    I'd like to see comparable oil lab tests.

    Sample A: base oil
    Sample B: base oil with muti
    Sample C: base oil after 10,000kms
    Sample D: base and muti mix after 10,000kms

    Otherwise no chance I'm buying anything.

    Ok, I will make a plan.
    I can use my oil from the Troopie.
    But I don't run the Troopie without it any longer.
    So maybe somebody that will be using Uniglide for the first time can give us that untreated 10,000km sample.

    Anybody that wants to put their hand up?
    The oil you pay for. The Uniglide I will supply.

    PS. In PMB will be best. The oil will be at hand, as well as the lab.

    Just another update.

    The whole blending has been moved to an ISO9001 facility. So the product is now totally predictable. Not deviating from the spec. (We had some tolerance issues.)

    I have enough stock on FRC at the moment, but it is def getting momentum. The Multi Spray we had a big batch in the courier truck and it had an accident. Got back about 60%, so not a total loss.

    Next is the Multy Spray that is charged with R134A. Yes, refrigeration gas. Environmentally friendly and totally inert. So the electricians can use it in the live switch-gear. Can use it in an mining environment. Underground as well.

    Just waiting for the MSDS and then we will officially launch the product. But we will have a whole range of R134A charged products.

    Watch this space. Things are starting to move in the right direction.
