SiC Lubrication: Revolutionizing Vehicle Performance with Clean Technology
SiC Lubrication is a revolutionary development that chemically creates a permanent Silicon Carbide (SiC) coating at a micron level within the valleys of the surface of all metal parts in which the lubrication is introduced. It is the process of introducing Silicon into a Carbon atmosphere to create high-performance lubrication. SiC is used as a high-performance surface protector due to its properties of being able to withstand extreme temperatures. High-performance parts and equipment manufacturers utilize SiC in some of their most expensive parts.
Cerma, the leader in SiC Lubrication technology, has been in the forefront of SiC lubrication since its inception in 2001 by inventor John Murray. Cerma was the first to utilize the acids and carbon within the engine oil to create a SiC coating across the entire surface of the engine.
SiC Lubrication Applications
SiC Lubrication has various applications in the automotive and manufacturing industries, including:
  • Stationary or dynamic turbine components
  • Seals, bearings, process equipment, engine components, and custom coatings for professional racing engines
  • Cars, trucks, aircraft, marine, and HVAC units
How SiC Lubrication Works
SiC Lubrication achieves the properties of SiC coatings in a simple one-time application. All Cerma STM-3 Treatments and Cerma Motor Oils are created using the same proprietary SiC process. Cerma STM-3 is a proprietary formulation blended to create high-performance lubrication for use in equipment utilizing metal parts requiring lubrication. So good, it's SiC!
  • Cerma STM-3 Engine Treatments work with both Auto and Diesel applications and the chemistry works within a number of areas within a vehicle, including the crankcase, the transmission, and the drive train.
  • Cerma Motor Oils work with both Auto and Diesel vehicles utilizing the same SiC chemistry.
  • Cerma STM-3 Grease creates SiC coatings within the operating environment of the equipment being treated. Thus, the equipment operator receives all the benefits of SiC coatings without the high cost.
  • Cerma STM-3 HVAC (Cerma Blue Ice) is added to the Freon and creates a SiC coating along the entire surface inside the coils and removes the moisture by chemically changing the H2O molecules into the coating. The lack of moisture and the hard heat-resistant micron coating provide maximum efficiency to the unit.
Benefits of SiC Lubrication
SiC Lubrication offers numerous benefits, including:
  • Reduces vibration and friction in engines and equipment
  • More power to motorized equipment (increased RPM or improved energy output efficiency at the same RPM)
  • Cooler operation in all engines, transmissions, gearboxes, sliding devices, and bearing assemblies
  • As tested, it yielded a 45ºF average reduction in fluid temperatures
  • Longer equipment life
  • Significantly longer lubrication (oil) service life
  • Protection against carbon and lacquer buildup allowing for improved piston sealing
  • Increased compression resulting in better fuel burn
  • Produces a hardened, durable sub-surface and does not react with acids, alkalis, or molten salts up to 800°C
  • In air, SiC forms a protective Silicon Oxide Coating and can be used up to 1600°C
  • High thermal conductivity, coupled with low thermal expansion and superior strength
  • Exceptional material with Thermal Shock Resistant qualities
  • Little or no Grain Boundary Impurities and maintain strength in very high temperatures
