TriboTEX: More HP, Better MPG, and Less Wear in Car Engines

It's 7:18 AM on Monday morning.

You realize you need to be at work by 8 AM sharp.

You throw on clothes, grab a cup of coffee, and are out the door lickity-split. Without even thinking, you drive off...

Halfway to work the "Check Engine" light blinks on and your hood starts to smoke.

You're now living through an invisible, multi-billion dollar problem faced by drivers worldwide. A problem that big oil companies want you to ignore...

Average gas mileage for new passenger cars has stagnated around 22 MPG for the last 20 years. Traditional engines only deliver a 30% tank-to-wheel efficiency at best.

Cars are generally discarded after 200K miles due to the stress and heat caused by friction inside the engine, which leads to lost compression and efficiency. Engines wear out quickly and cost $1000s to repair when something eventually breaks.

Millions of cars end up in landfills every year as they wear out and become too costly to maintain. Toxic heavy metals, oils, and other chemicals end up in our storm drains and water supplies when once loved cars end up in junkyards.

SOLUTION

TriboTEX stands at the forefront of a huge revolution in tiny nanoparticles. We’ll show you how TriboTEX can improve your engine in 15 minutes, but first let’s look at the technology behind it...

It’s like ceramic protective coatings used in some of high-performance engines, but it reduces friction 10X BETTER than engine oil alone. In engine tests we discovered that:

  • Fuel economy performance increased by 6-8% in a car with 130K+ miles with compression going up.
  • Cylinders in your engine form a film that is thicker in a transverse direction, As a result, ellipticity decreases and compression increases. So engine "repair" itself as the TriboTEX coating goes to work.
  • Engine noise drops dramatically. On idle your engine noise will be so low, your neighbors may not even hear your car in the AM :-) and your mechanic will hear your injectors as dominant source of a noise.
  • Easily adds 3%+ more power under your hood without disassembly.

Plus what TriboTEX doesn’t do is just as important. TriboTEX won’t... 

  • Ruin your catalytic converter on newer cars like other oil additives (ZDDP) 
  • Pollute the environment because all TriboTEX ingredients are environmentally friendly 
  • Leave you wondering “if it’s working”. You’ll feel & hear it as soon as 15 minutes after, due to coating in journal bearings while performance boost will come later when your cylinders get coated.

We’ve been awarded over $1,033K+ in grants from the National Science Foundation and other agencies to conduct research and make our material in large production quantities. Now we need you to bring TriboTEX to life in your vehicle.

We're ready to reveal TriboTEX to YOU, our first customers!

 

 

 

 

 

Take your car out for a drive to warm the engine up. You want to make sure your engine is warm before applying TriboTEX.

 

Open your oil reservoir and squeeze all 20 ml of the proprietary nanomaterial into your engine or oil tank.

 

Idle the engine for 15 minutes to allow the engine oil to mix with TriboTEX.

 

After putting another 500 miles on your car (about 2 full tanks), your gas mileage will experience the full effect of TriboTEX at work.

Apply another coating of TriboTEX AFTER driving another 40,000 miles

Yes, it lasts that long! One syringe is enough to treat 3-8 quarts of oil. Just add extra applications if your car or truck takes more oil.

 

 

 

 

What We’ve Achieved Up To Now

By backing our campaign, you will be one of the first people in the world to experience how nanotechnology is changing the way people drive. 

TriboTEX has been in hundreds of lab tests and in live on-the-road tests with dozens of our friends' cars. TriboTEX has shown to provide the benefits of higher gas mileage, more horsepower, and reduced wear in the real world.

We've benchmarked our formula against other additives on the market and believe we offer drivers the best value:

 

 

       

 

 

How is it called CarBoss in a video? We realized that TriboTEX carries way more value and existing exposre in mass media  over years of publicity than any new name. 

Not ready to be early adopter and technology revolutionary? Buy yourself a good karma and watch our progress for $1.

Risks and challenges

We are confident we’ll be able to ship finished product to our backers. We have been preparing in advance for months.

Our #1 priority is to deliver TriboTEX to backers as quickly and seamlessly as possible. To prepare, we’ve made special batches of TriboTEX in our pilot reactor just for Kickstarter. We’ve already made enough nanomaterial for 300 packages of TriboTEX and they’re ready to ship. This guarantees more than enough packages for all early bird solo and family backers.

You fund us. We ship immediately. It’s that simple.

We’ve successfully tested, produced and delivered TriboTEX to our early adopters and partners all over the U.S.

Our biggest challenge is now getting the word out to drivers like YOU!
