Xado Frequently Asked Questions
advances have a dramatic impacts on our every day lives. Technologies
once considered something beyond imagination, are now becoming
commonplace, for instance, mobile telephones, Internet technologies,
cloning experiments, and so forth. One such technological advance is
the recent discovery of revitalization. Rather than just changing man’s
view on repair in the conventional sense of the word, it opens new
resources in operating machines and mechanisms.
At present, XADO is
making active and sweeping inroads into different areas of science,
technology and production and while technologies are emanating from
laboratories around the world for new industries, power engineering and
transport, we invite you to jointly explore how the XADO revitalizant
can dramatically change your life.
You, our potential customers, no
doubt have questions you need answering. This Frequently Asked Questions Section, FAQ for short, will
answer the most typical, and most frequently asked questions, which we
received our over the past years. Conventionally, they fall into
three categories: Vehicles, Industry and Firearms.
We will also explain the physics of the process and demonstrate it
graphically. Once you understand how XADO works, we hope you will be
excited to try XADO for yourself.
To view the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ's) in detail click on the headings below:-
“revitalization” (from Latin “vita”
– life) literally translated means “returning to life”. The discovery
of the revitalization phenomenon is based on unique physical and
chemical processes, which, under specific conditions, can occur in the
friction zone. In short, their essence consists of the following:
during mechanical operation, excessive loads occur in the friction
areas. At extremely heavy loads, excess destructive energy is released.
But if we introduce a unique building material – a revitalizant – into
the friction zone, then the energy released by the friction, will
actually bind new material to the friction surface instead of
destroying the material surface.
does it usually occur?
Let us imagine a flaw
in one of the friction
surfaces. In this case, it is a scratch (in the cross-section) made
along the axis of motion of the surfaces. Here, the metal atoms have
non-compensated double bonds, i.e. such atoms, if force is applied, can
be easily “captured”, energised to build up their oscillation, and
detached from the matrix. Imagine a tree growing on the edge of a
ravine. Due to the influences of water and wind, the soil gradually
erodes the soil to expose the roots. The tree becomes unstable, and a
strong gust of wind would be enough to uproot it. In simple terms, the
same process occurs during surface wear. Atoms are easily dislodged and
surface wear develops. Furthermore, under excessive loads, entire
groups of atoms – clusters – can become dislodged, causing extreme wear.
This has always been the case until the phenomenon of REVITALIZATION
was discovered, when scientists found that it was possible to reversing
the process of wear by restoring the worn-out surface! It turned out
that conditions could be created when the affected part is able to
restore its surface thickness and size to its initial dimensions. To
create such favourable conditions, it is necessary to introduce a
specially synthesized substance – XADO revitalizant into the friction
zone. It contains the building material for the new surface and a
unique energy activator, which enables the excess friction energy to be
harnessed in order to create a new matrix – in fact, a brand new
does the surface grow?
starts in the areas where the greatest friction (the zone of heaviest
wear) occurs, since it is exactly this location where sufficient excess
energy exists to initiate a new process, and where metal atoms have the
greatest number of free (non-compensated) bonds. These bonds, like
magnets, capture and hold the building material – the revitalizant -
where it is needed. Under the presence of the active load, the energy
activator harnesses the excess energy to construct a new matrix. In
simple terms, a new coating is formed on the old worn surface. In
several minutes after the onset of revitalization, a cermet patch will
appear on the scratch. The highlighted zone, the zone of abnormal
activity, has disappeared. The energy processes have stabilized and
surface growth stops. At the same time, mutual diffusion of two
substances (metal and cermet) takes place to complete the process of
building a new coating, cementing, and finally eliminating the flaw.
the more the process continues the stronger the new surface becomes.
surface growth controlled?
Let us examine a part
under a microscope.
Even the smoothest surface, at high magnification, looks uneven and
represents a continuous series of peaks and valleys. In time, wear will
erode a weak surface and will dislodge and “expell” metal atoms,
turning them into chips and making the grooves deeper. 100 % wear
occurs, not when the part completely disintegrates, but when the
magnified peaks start to abrade. As long as these peaks exist, the part
can be restored by revitalization. However, the part will never gain in
size more than required. As soon as the valley and peak become equal,
the energy conditions required for revitalising disappears, and the
conditions stabilise. As soon as the surface starts to wear in another
location, the revitalazant left over form the previous treatment will
immediately start revitalization all over again.
can the build up be?
The actual layer
created by XADO revitalizant
is measured in microns (one-hundredths of micro meter in the engine and
one-tenths of a micro meter in gear box wheels.
does revitilization give?
Firstly,a new coating
is formed on the
surfaces of the friction pairs increasing the size by reclaiming the
“one-hundredths” and “one-tenths” of material eroded from the surface
and that is now suspended in the lubricating oil from the previous
operations. This means ACTUAL REPAIR. Secondly, the coating created has
a new unique property, namely, it is extremely robust, highly resistant
to corrosion, with an extremely smooth surface. Therefore, after
revitalization has begun the materials life expectancy will increase by
2 to 4-fold. This means PROTECTION FROM WEAR. Due to revitalization,
you end up with a reconditioned part, which, to all intents and
purposes, is superior to a the original.
claim that the coatings obtained are unique. What are the key features?
The key features of the
part’s surface before
and after revitalization are as follows: increase in micro hardness
(kg/micro metre2) from 65-280 to 650-750 range, after treatment; the
roughness coefficient (Ra) before revitalization was 0.9-2.1, and after
treatment it is 0.06; and above all a dramatic increase in

a new Vehicle. Why do I need XADO?
During the first few miles
when a new vehicle
is being run-in, adjustment of friction surfaces takes place.
Revitalization allows the vehicle to be run-in with the minimal of
material wear, and offers the unique chance of preserving the entire
machinery. The surface does not wear out because it is protected with a
cermet coating, which is more durable than metal surface matrix. It
will be the new cermet protective layer that will be subject to wear
and tear, not the original metal surface. Note that during
revitalization, the friction surfaces adjust to one another
individually, this is only possible during manual assembly. This means
you will receive a custom fitted engine in your vehicle!
are about to embark on a major engine overhaul, you’re just in time!
Revitalising is critical
for engines that
have been overhauled because during typical overhaul you cannot repeat
the steps the original surface hardening. When boring an engine, the
upper layer that is especially hardened is removed. And, if prior to
first boring, the engine was running for about 200,000 km on average,
then after the major overhaul this figure will fall to 70,000 km. This
would ultimately happen if you do not use our XADO treatment. XADO will
harden the surface for you!
engine is new, or has just completed a major overhaul, will half a dose
to application instructions, new engines and those that have completed
a major overhaul can be treated in one step – 2 tubes at a time. So,
can my vehicle be completely restored? Nothing in the world is
infinite, and vehicles are no exception. The main point is to
understand the revitalizant operating principle, and to apply it
correctly. You see, many people suffer for years listening to the
heart-breaking grating noise coming from their gearbox, or reducer, and
are simply unaware of the fact that these failures can be easily
treated. The noise disappears in several hours after the introduction
of revitalization. Of course, there are no miracles in this world: a
broken shaft can never be repaired, but laying down a protective
coating of 0.02 to 0.05 micro metre on the cylinder wall, or of 1 micro
metre on gears, is easily achievable.
often will the engine need to be treated?
The treatment again depends
upon the amount
of oil in the engine-and-gearbox unit (see question above). If you have
used any of the engine treatments, which includes the three stage
blister packs, the advanced 1 stage products or the 1 stage metal
conditioners This varies from 1 blister pack treatment up to 9 blister
packs for larger engines. The treatment for an average petrol or diesel
saloon car with an oil capacity of 3 to 10 litres, is 3 blister packs.
Don't worry this is NOT required immediately but, these will last for
100,000 Kilometres (65,000 miles). We are one of the only product that
will last so long, unlike other products that require you to repeat the
process every 20,000 miles!
is nothing wrong with my Car, but would
XADO still help?
XADO would certainly help; not
least it will
protect your engine against any future problems. Even if you
think there is no existing problem with your engine, there will always
be minor areas or wear that XADO will restore. View XADO as an
impacts does XADO have on the oil retaining cylinder bore crosshatch
It is widely agreed that
finish on a cylinder wall is vital to help retain oil on the cylinder
The application of XADO has
no effect on the
lubrication of the cylinder surface as the cermet coating is olephelic,
meaning the coating attracts oil. The olephelic nature of the
cermet coating not only retains oil, but also significantly reduces
friction between the piston rings and the cylinder walls.
In fact by using XADO you
will help to refine
the bore Geometry?
the cermet layer grow and cause engine seizure?
No, the engine will not
is self-regulating. In fact, the formation of a cermet layer takes
place in both friction surfaces that are affected by the same load. due
to the high pressure and temperature, a cermet layer starts to form
between the friction surfaces. Its thickness increases pro rata to the
wear (the process was explained in the answer to question 1). As soon
as the original worn surface has been repaired, the friction factor
drops dramatically, and the XADO activation energy will also decrease.
The process then stabilizes, and at some point, the energy will drop to
a point where cermet growth will stop completely.
XADO pass through the Oil filter?
The gel when added to the
breaks down It passes through the filter with the oil.
XADO affect the Turbo or Catalytic converter?
No, XADO will not affect
the turbo or
catalytic converter. It will not harm them in any way.
XADO composition, mixed with the engine oil, settle on the bottom of
the sump during prolonged parking of the vehicle and, as a result, lose
to application instructions, after the revitalizant has been
introduced, the engine has to be run at idle for at least five minutes.
This is enough time for the revitalizant to locate the areas of
friction and begin it's work and will not be affected by periods of in
activity, such as parking.
car is idling, the oil pressure lamp blinks. Will XADO help?
There are many causes of reduced
ranging from trivial failure of the oil sensor to a worn out oil pump,
bushings, or crankshaft journals. If the wear is not catastrophic (not
100 %), XADO will definitely help! In any case, consult a certified
XADO help with my excessive oil consumption?
The causes of excess oil
numerous. Some of them are easy to eliminate, while others present a
serious problem. If the problem is due to the extreme wear of the
sleeve assembly, XADO can help, but even here, the degree of wear is a
key factor. Let us remind you of manufacturers’ recommendations:
consumption of 1 litre of oil per 1,000 km (for a petrol engine) points
to practically 100 % wear, so a good mechanical diagnostics is always
you prove the claim of fuel saving up to 30%?
As a rule, excessive fuel
caused by worn sleeve assemblies. After revitalization, the assembly
geometry will be restored, and fuel consumption will be restored to its
original value. In addition, a lower friction factor (surface finish
0.06 Ra instead of the usual 0.9 to 2.1 Ra) will significantly reduces
friction loss. The result is a dramatic increase in fuel savings, up to
30 % at idle and 5 to 7 % when driving.
does compression in cylinders increase?
By restoring the cylinders’
compression grows by 10 to 20 % as early as in the first 500 to 1,000
km of operation. We have witnessed cases when the compression increased
from 4 - 6 atmospheres to 10 - 12 atmospheres. Usually, low compression
values are caused by mechanical damage (piston burnout, valves, etc.),
rather than by natural wear.
scheduled two major overhauls. Can the engine be re-bored as usual, or
will I run into a problem cutting through cermet layer?
Of course, to be on the
safe side the engine
should be re-bored! Keep in mind that the cermet layer is formed to a
depth of 10 to 30 micro metre, whereas the cutter removes a much
greater layer of metal. But do you really need conventional major
overhaul? The exceptional capacity that enables XADO technology to
restore the geometry of engine parts will allow you to avoid these
labour-intensive and expensive repairs. For instance, the repair of the
sleeve assembly can be reduced to replacing damaged piston rings or
replacing rings that have completely lost elasticity, replacing a
burnt-out piston, etc. In other words, you would only need a
“face-lift” repair, which takes only a few hours.
XADO stop my engine smoking?
Yes but it depends on
the colour of the smoke coming
from your exhaust.
White smoke is caused by water and or antifreeze entering the cylinder,
and the engine trying to burn it with the fuel. In this case you need a
new cylinder head gasket and XADO cannot repair this.
Black smoke is caused by excess fuel that has entered the cylinder area
and cannot be burned completely due to faulty carburettor, fuel pump,
or a leaky fuel injector. XADO will certainly help the faulty
fuel pump, particulary if you have a HPFP, in which case you can use
our XADO gel for HPFP.
Blue smoke is caused by engine oil entering the cylinder area and being
burned along with the fuel air mixture. The car has many seals,
gaskets, O-rings and piston rings that are designed to keep the engine
oil from entering the cylinder. XADO cannot treat the gaskets and
O rings but is can treat the piston rings.

interested in improving the compression in my engine. Will one blister
pack of the 3 part treatment be sufficient to improve compression?
One blister pack will
certainly help but it
will not complete the process of full revitalization. There is no harm
in trying and you can always order additional blister packs as and when
you want to.
XADO be used in old classic Cars?
Yes, XADO can be used with
any vehicle no
matter its age. We have many classic car owners who use XADO.
XADO be used in engines with wet clutches, Audi tiptronic gearboxes and
Yes, XADO will work in all
engines. If the
engine is in reasonable condition, but in need of some revitalization
the product will work. If the engine is excessively worn it will still
work but the results will be less noticeable, and would be best
accompanied by any necessary mechanical repairs.
noticed a slight whine from the differential. Will XADO help?
Yes XADO will help.
We have our
revitalizant designed to treat gearboxes and differentials.
XADO work on a Nikisil coated engine?
Yes XADO will work on a Nikisil
coated engine, and
no it will not strip the bore lining of it’s original Nikisil
coating? We have experienced with this coating as well as other
similar coatings and XADO works well.
use XADO in an engine with a dry sump?
Yes XADO can be used in any
engine whether it
has a dry or wet sump.
XADO quieten engine tappets?
Noisy tappets can be due to
adjustment so this may need to be adjusted manually. If there is
some wear and tear on the metal surface then XADO will help.
Again, try it and see if it helps, it will do not harm.
valve guide rods be reconditioned?
are protected with special oil-scraper cups (valve seals), so the
amount of oil getting onto the valves and, respectively, of
revitalizant, is small. If the valve wear is insignificant, the small
amount of revitalizant is sufficient to protect and preserve the
valves. If the wear is heavy, it will be necessary to replace the
valves and the guide sleeves.
treating ICEs, should the cylinders be treated also?
that’s not required. It’s quite a different matter if you want to
restore the compression in one, two, three, or more cylinders without
treating the entire engine, or to eliminate ring sticking (this is a
frequently occurring problem because any overheating of the engine
contributes to ring sticking). In this case, the gel revitalizant for
reconditioning cylinders is exactly what you need!
Vehicle is very noisy in 5th gear. I changed the oil, but that didn’t
help. Will XADO help?
gearbox that is noisy in it's highest gear is not uncommon even in some
new vehicles, in which, due to design features, the fifth gear runs in
a almost lubrication dry state. Earlier, attempts were made to solve
this problem by adjustments. However, no adjustments are capable of
coping with the wear that has already occurred and preventing future
wear. The addition of the XADO gel revitalizant allows you to eliminate
for good the noise that occurs in five-speed CSGs, as well as to
improve positive gear change. The repair will appear within 25 to 30
miles after treatment.
one takes your ads seriously, then it’s possible to run with no
lubricant at all?
ran an engine with a dry case only to demonstrate the quality of the
CERMET coating. The first dry run was undertaken in early 1999. A
renowned racing driver drove a vehicle at maximum speed, and performed
complex driving maneuvers in a car without a drop of lubricant. He
became a believer in XADO only when he had “burned” a set of tyres.
Driving without any lubricant was an obligatory requirement to obtain
the Chinese state certification. The Chinese diesel-engine truck
“Liberation” with an 8-ton load was driven with a dry case during a
complete day work shift for 204 km! The truck is now back in
operation, and is checked regularly. All the improved parameters,
obtained during treatment, remained intact!
It wasn’t XADO’s intention to manufacture a product for “dry driving”.
Why do we set up such demonstrations? And why do we write about them?
The answer is straightforward: We demonstrate that it is possible to
drive with a dry oil case only to show the quality of the CERMET
coating created by the revitalazant, and for you to understand that, by
treating your car, you will be provided with not only a revitaized
repair, but a guarantee against extreme oil loss! Now your
vehicle is protected by XADO, and XADO won’t let you down!
Hydrogen as a fuel and I am concerned about hydrogen embrittlement.
Will XADO help to protect the engine?
Indeed, XADO can
XADO creates a CERMET (ceramic/metal) layer on any friction surface it
encounters which creates a barrier against the absorbsion of hydrogen
by the underlying metal structure thereby preventing embrittlement.
can the engine compression be measured properly?
Here is an advice from
a renowned expert, the
Director of the firm “AB-Engineering”, A. Khruliev, Ph.D.:
When measuring the compression, observe the following rules: warm up
the engine, and cut off the fuel feed. To do so, you can switch off the
fuel pump, close the nozzles, or use any other methods preventing the
feed of fuel into the cylinders. Remove all the spark plugs. Selective
removal of spark plugs, practiced by some service centers, is
inadmissible since this increases the rotation resistance and
spontaneously reduces the revolutions when the engine is cranked with
the starter. The storage battery should be fully charged and the
starter should be in good condition. The compression is measured with
both an open and a closed throttle valve. Both methods yield respective
results, making it possible to define specific defects (see the Table
Defects and faults in a petrol engine detected by measuring the
Cycles & Scooters
with other products and questions
about XADO's make up
compatible with other additives on the market?
Of course, you can. The
XADO technology is
compatible with all additives, metal conditioners, and re-metalisants,
no matter how often they were used.
XADO contain any PTFE, Boron, Moly, Zinc, Chlorinated Hydrocarbon etc?
No, XADO does not contain
any of these
products. These products can damage your engine and in certain
circumstances are toxic and carcinogenic. XADO is very safe to use.
an Extreme Pressure Additive (EPA)?
No XADO is not an EPA as
contain sulfur or chlorine compounds which can react with water and
combustion by products, forming acids that facilitate corrosion of the
engine parts and bearings. As you have seen form our website XADO
causes none of these.
product should I use and how to apply it?
the difference between the gels and aerosols?
The gel revitalazant in
tubes are our
original products and though easy to use, it can be difficult to use on
some engines, gearboxes etc, where the oil filler neck or plug is in a
difficult to reach location, so we designed the aerosol. This comes
with a convenient tube, which you attach to the aerosol nozzle allowing
you to reach these in accessible places.
the difference between the traditional 3 stage gel blister packs, the
Advanced 1 Stage treatment?
traditional gels in the blister packs are part of a three stage
treatment. These are applied every 65 miles and after the third
tube is used your treatment is complete. Some customers did not
want the trouble of a three stage application, so we designed the new
advanced 1 Stage treatment. As the name implies you only have to
apply this once and you treatment is complete. (The amount of XADO
required depends on you engine or gearbox oil capacity. Please
refer to the appropriate product dosage.)
The new advanced 1 stage revitalizant can be used with all types of
engines petrol, diesel, and LPG, whereas the traditional gel products
are specific to the particular type of engine. (i.e. petrol gel
revitalizant for petrol engines only).
should I use the metal conditioners rather than the gel revitalizants
The metal conditioners
contain exactly the
same revitalizants that is in all our products, except they have two
additional enhancements. The first is what we call a 2D sliding agent,
which provides additional anti friction properties. The second helps to
enhance the lubricating properties of your oil by strengthen the oils
damage my engine if I use too much XADO?
No, XADO will not damage
your engine. XADO
revitalizant in gel aerosol or granular form are completely soluble in
the oil and do not change the viscosity of the properties of the oil in
any way. Remember XADO is self-regulating. As soon as the original worn
surface has been repaired, the friction factor drops dramatically, and
the XADO activation energy will also decrease. The process then
stabilizes, and at some point, the energy will drop to a point where
cermet growth will stop completely. Besides, using too much is just a
waste of money.
need to flush my engine before using XADO?
No, you do not need to
flush your engine as
part of the revitization process XADO cleans the metallic surfaces.
However if you do feel your engine needs flushing, try our Vitaflush
product, which will not only flush the engine but will also restore it.
bought some gel revitalizant blister packs but find I cannot squeeze
the gel into the oil filler neck. What should I do?
Mix the contents of the
tube with a small
amount of oil warmed up to room temperature. You can then pour this don
the oil filler neck.
just about to change the oil in my vehicle. Should I use XADO before or
after the treatment?
use XADO in either
case, but for the full treatment to take place you must not change the
oil until 1,500 km after using the treatment. For some of
our treatments this may be less depending on the product you are using.
I am in
the Motor Tade, how can XADO help me?
Manufacturing and Equipment
grease lubricated mechanisms revitalized?
is possible by using our XADO greases. First, determine the degree of
wear, and depending on this, use the appropriate XADO grease.
Protective Grease is used for new assemblies, or those with
insignificant wear (up to 10 %); it is a versatile substitute for any
grease. Restoring Grease contains a greater number of active
components, so, rather than just protecting the part’s surface, it also
restores its geometry. It is used for assemblies and mechanisms with a
degree of wear up to 50 %. Repairing Grease is used for assemblies with
80 % worn surfaces.
I apply the XADO Grease to a bearing?
Here the rules are the same
as for any other
lubricant. First, remove the old standard grease, and then apply the
new grease. Do not completely fill the inner bearing body with grease -
this is a common error. Excess grease in a bearing is, in fact,
provides an additional load which cause overheating and will accelerate
wear. Refer to manufacturer’s suggested amount of grease that can be
applied. XADO grease can be used for the entire service period of the
bearing (or other assembly), and requires no subsequent replacing.
roller bearings be reconditioned separately from the mechanism which
they are part of?
In principle, this is
possible, but when
revitalizing a bearing assembly in the standard way, the acting
surfaces are adjusted independently to one another. However, if
revitalization is performed on a bench (let’s call this method an
artificial one), then after the bearing has been refitted, it may be
that the bearing will not run with the reconditioned friction surfaces.
company uses machine tools. How will we benefit from this treatment?
A machine tool is a complex
equipment, but it is still a mechanism, so naturally, revitalization
improves its performance. We would like to draw your attention to the
extreme effectiveness of XADO for high-precision machine tools. The
spindle is the key component of any machine tool. It is a highly loaded
assembly running at high speeds (up to 30,000 rpm, and in coordinate
grinding machines the speed even reaches 84,000 rpm). This leads to
significant wear in a very short time period. Experts know that
conventional repair of such assemblies is, in many cases, impossible
because of the specificity, complexity and shortage of parts. Here is
where XADO comes handy! Revitalization with one of the special
high-speed XADO greases allows the spindle operations to achieve the
required certification. Rejects are practically eliminated, this being
of critical importance during any finishing operations.

claim that XADO will treat any firearm barrels large or small?
Yes, XADO technology will
mechanisms, simple, complex, small and big, ranging from watches to
nuclear power plant turbines – wherever where there is motion and
friction. For a clear, effective and fast demonstration of the
effectiveness of the technology, there is no better example than a
“projectile & barrel”. Here is an ideal example where all the
conditions required for the formation of the CERMET coating are in
place, namely a very high temperature, significant friction energy and
interaction of materials with different strengths. The revitalization
process takes place literally in front of your eyes. The Russian
certified handgun test laboratory “Rzhevka” military unit 33491, in
association with “Kalashnikov. Firearms. Ammunition and Equipment
Magazine” carried out extensive tests. The tested included both new and
used firearms with chromed and non-chromed barrels.
does XADO barrel treatment provide?
Revitalising a rifle barrel
following: geometry restoration (complete shuttering) and protection
from the wear of the bore surface; maximum impact force for the given
type of ammunition; a 10-fold increase in wear resistance and barrel
life; an increase in firing flatness, the key factor is a 2 to 3 fold
increase in firing accuracy!
preliminary preparation of the barrel needed prior to revitalization?
No special preparation is
cleaning of the bore is enough.
is the point at which XADO will stop revitilizing a worn barrel?
The XADO revitalizant
improves the firing
performance of any firearm however worn.
is the service life of a reconditioned barrel?
A special experiment was
needed to answer
this question. First, a new chrome barrel was revitalized. Even though
the barrel spread characteristics, complied with the standard
acceptable, the firing accuracy increased by 23 % after treatment with
Next, the durability tests were
meant firing 200 tracer rounds in succession. The firearm became so
sizzling hot that the stock varnish coating began to run. It was cooled
in the simplest way by dipping it into a bucket of water. Everybody
waited impatiently for the results of the test. Sceptics wagered that
the coating wouldn’t withstand the extreme temperature drops and would
simply peel off. The results surprised even the developers of XADO! The
firing accuracy increased by an additional 46.6 %! The service
life tests carried out at the Rzhevsk test facility allow us to claim
that the service life is 10,000 shots with no loss of improved
performance. Under normal loads, you’ll be able to keep the barrel in
an ideal condition at all times by treating it once a year with the
appropriate XADO treatment.
the treated barrel need any maintenance?
No special maintenance is
the protected inner surface of the barrel is subject less to corrosion
attack than conventional coatings are. Remember that chippings and
micro cracks are restored even on chromed barrel coatings!
case, the firearm with a reconditioned barrel was kept in a room with
high humidity for several months. Will the revitalizing effect
No, it won’t. Special
barrel rusting and
exposure tests have shown that the performance of a treated barrel does
it make any difference whether the barrel is chromed, or not?
The revitalizant improves
the accuracy of any
barrel, both chromed, and un chromed.
I am a
marksman, and own a top of the range rifle. How will I benefit from
revitalizing the barrel?
shooting accuracy, even
for high-precision barrels, will certainly increase.
I have a shotgun
with a pitted chrome barrel. Will XADO help?
Yes, it will. The main
point is to observe
the revitalization principle, i.e. to ensure sufficient friction by
contact between the bullet and barrel surface. You might want to use a
bullet of a special design. In which case, you can draw more extensive
conclusions and back up both of our tests.
general questions you may ask about Xado?
been told that I should not use an additive in my oil?
All engine oils and greases
have some form of
additives added by the manufacturer. In fact without these additives
the oils and greases would not do their jobs properly, so it is a
fallacy that there are no additives in any of oils and grease and that
you should not use additives to further enhance your engines
performance, purely on the basis that the oil companies do not use them
– they do.
You must remember XADO is
different as it is
NOT an additive. The oil or grease is used as a carrier to deliver XADO
to where it is needed.
are several of products on the market that seem similar to XADO. Are
they the same?
No they are not the same
and some of them can
damage your engine. XADO is the original and all others are attempting
to copy our process.
XADO not stocked by the major UK retail chains?
The reason why we are not
on the high street
is purely the fact that the major retailers do not always do justice to
a popular product. We feel as though we can do better. We in fact
regularly achieve the top position in most search engines so much of
our sales are based online and we ship direct to individuals, dealers,
motor factors and garages. Many of our customers order form us by way
of a recommendation.
have to order the product online or can I place an order by calling
We are happy to deal with
your order in any
way you wish. If you are happier calling our office within office hours
our sales staff will gladly process your order over the phone.
can I buy your engine oils?
We are currently only
offering engines oil
purchased in a minimum of 1000 gal quantities for trade purposes. Our
specialist field is in revitalization rather than lubricants as oil is
a flammable liquid distribution in small quantities is a problem.
If you are looking to gain the benefits of revitlization for your
vehicles, you are better off using one of our gel blister packs or 1
Stage revitalizants and adding this you your existing oil. If you are
also looking to change your oil then use an oil available from any
motor parts supplier and add our revitalazant to treat your vehicle.
all your information I still remain sceptical, as there have been so
many claims for "wonder" products in the past?
We can quite understand
your scepticism and
we do not claim that XADO is a one stop fix all product. XADO has been
independently tested and used by may customers in many countries around
the world. All we can suggest is to try one of our products and see if
No. All our products have a
Certificate (MSC). As XADO has been used to revitialize machinery
in a food processing plant XADO also has a food hygien certificate.
