NMF Ionic Friction Reducer
is a revolutionary product which uses a scientifically unique mechanism to reduce wear, improve efficiency, and clean parts.   This page explains about NMF. If you have any questions, please feel free 24/7 to call us at 844-763-7250.



Friction is the resistant and opposing force resulting from the bonding between moving surfaces. All moving parts suffer this opposition to motion; even precisely-machined metal parts such as engine bearings have surface irregularities that abrade and cause friction. Friction has three costly side effects: heat, energy loss, and wear.

Heat causes mating surfaces to expand which causes more friction and produces even more heat. In machinery with fluid lubricants, thermal breakdown can occur when extreme temperatures scorch the lubricants, rendering them ineffective. All friction reduces the efficiency of a machine. In gas and diesel engines, this reduction in efficiency results in energy losses measureable in miles per gallon (mpg) or hours per gallon (hpg). Losses in horsepower are also evident.

When metal wears it produces abrasive particle contamination of liquid lubricants. The metal particulates accelerate wear, causing irregularities in mating suraces that create more friction. Gasoline and diesel engines also generate acids during normal operations which cause corrosion, increase friction and produce additional wear.



From a manufacturing perspective, there are two possible approaches to solving a problem. One approach is to produce a product that treats only the symptoms. The other approach is to make something that goes as far as removing the root cause of the problem.

An analogy for the friction problem could be how the pharmaceutical industry addresses the problem of the common cold. The profitable approach for pharmaceutical companies has been to produce medicines which reduce symptoms but don’t actually kill the cold virus. Maybe the reason we can’t buy a real cold cure is because manufacturers aren't investing in teh relevant research and development.

In regards to automotive friction, additives other than NMF take the approach of the various cold medicines in merely attempting to cover the symptoms of the problem. These products employ one of the following two methods which are explained below: continuous coating or colloidal suspension
- Continuous coating: This method employs a thick liquid to continuously recoat surfaces with a lubricant film in an attempt to prevent metal-to-metal contact. Heat causes the suspension to thin out and lose its effectiveness, beginning a cycle of more heat, friction, wear, and energy loss.
- Colloidal suspension: This method attempts to coat surfaces with solid particles suspended in an oil or grease carrier. The particles are usually made of a substance harder than the metals in the machine, such as graphite, molybdenum disulfide, or Teflon. This method can result in residue that clogs filters and valves. Most harmful is that metal particles and hyrdrocarbon residue stick to the solid particles, creating cluster of abrasive grit which wear away at engine parts.

NMF is different. NMF does not use slippery liquids, motor-coating substances, or solid particles. Most of all, NMF is the only product which removes the cause of most friction.



All materials carry an electrical charge. These charges come in the form of electrons and protons. Protons are at the center of each atom while electrons orbit the atom. These charged sub-atomic particles create electrical forces between each other. These forces can be repellant or attractive. LIKE charges repel, OPPOSITE charges attract. Protons have a positive charge while electrons have a negative charge.

These electrical forces behave much like magnetism but act upon only particles that are very close together (unlike magnets that broadcast force).   When one metal surface has a positive charge (less electrons) and the other has a negative charge (more electrons), the two metal surfaces are attracted together in friction. When the opposite charges are brought close together, they produce a strong attracting force, which tries to squeeze the surfaces together. On the microscopic scale, this attractive force can become very intense, bending even metal. This atomic attraction between molecules can greatly increase the effort required to move charged surfaces against each other. Ultimately, this means that the atomic electrical forces increase friction, when opposite charges interact. This is the natural frictional state -- the problem to be overcome.

Now, what happens when the electrical charge in both metal surfaces are the same? The metal surfaces repel each other, opposing contact and reducing friction. How can both metal surfaces become same charged? By adding electrons to the atoms in both surfaces. By doing so, both surfaces become negatively charged, so they repel each other. This is how NMF directly reduces the friction between moving parts; it causes all of the moving surfaces to become negatively charged (with surplus electrons), so that all of the parts repel each other on the atomic scale, reducing contact friction.

But this is not the only way that NMF improves efficiency and reduces wear. Another important phenomenon that NMF addresses is the accumulation of wear particles and debris.

Normally, the opposite charges in the wear particles (and debris) cause them to attract to each other and also to the moving parts. This atomic attraction causes wear particles to build up and "snowball" into larger and larger abrasive clusters, further increasing wear. NMF prevents this by causing all of the parts and wear particles to have the same electrical charge (negative), so the wear particles repel each other and do not accumulate together -- they become isolated, suspended in the oil, and come out during an oil change.  This is how NMF cleans parts.  Click the below graphic for a video providing a scientific explanation.

Apply NMF to engine, fuel, hydraulics, transmission, differentials, hubs, radiator, power steering, greased joints, chains, gears.   New vehicles need friction;apply NMF after break-in.

Reduced wear  •  Clean parts   •  Lower temperatures  •  Longer parts life    •  Improved efficiency  •  Smooth shifting   •  Extended oil  •   Less vibration

Parts Cleaning:  NMF repels away residue, leaving it suspended in the base lubricant so it comes out cleanly during an oil change.   Within a few hundred miles parts are clean.  At 1:51 of this video is a segment on cleaning.  

Fuel Efficiency: Many factors -- such as vehicle type, vehicle condition, workload, driver habits, environment, and lubricant quality -- affect fuel consumption.  For a fully-treated (engine, fuel, transmission, hubs, differentials, radiator, power steering, greased joints) semi truck GoNMF offers a fuel savings or money-back guarantee.   For vehicles other than semi trucks GoNMF cannot make any guarantees in regards to fuel efficiency.

Oil Longevity:  A key benefit of NMF™ is that it extends the life of any conventional or synthetic oil. Here is what you will observe: because of the cleaning function, the first oil change after applying NMF will be unusually dirty. After changing that dirty oil and adding fresh NMF, your vehicle will enjoy all the benefits of healthy oil and clean, defrictionized parts.  As an example of oil longevity, while conventional oil in a semi truck is normally changed every 10,000-15,000 miles with NMF it should still be good at 40,000 miles -- just change the oil filter at 15,000 and 30,000 miles.    You keep the money that would have gone into the two oil changes you didn’t need.  Click for details.  

Oil life extension should be done only in conjunction with incremental oil analysis.  That way, you always know the status of your oil.  If you're a trucker who would like to extend the use of your oil, please contact us about our free oil analysis program.

Fleets have the advantage of ready access to oil analysis technology. If you are an individual and you would like to test how far you can go in your privately-own vehicle with NMF, there are companies which for a small fee will provide oil sample analysis reports. Such companies can be found on the internet through a search on "oil sample analysis." One tip on collecting your oil samples for analysis -- catch the oil in a testing bottle before it hits the oil pan. If the oil is collected out of the oil pan, it may contain previously-present contaminants.


Unlike harmful additives which leave behind residue or even clog filters, NMF contains no solid particles, leaves no residue, and prevents corrosion. NMF will not cause slippage in automatic transmissions and motorcycle wet clutches.
