TriboTEX Vehicle Enhancing Nanoparticles

Use the power of science to improve your vehicle with the TriboTEX Vehicle Enhancing Nanoparticles. This system increases your gas mileage and horsepower as well as “reverse wear” on your vehicle’s engine. TriboTEX does all of this by utilizing anisotropic nanoparticle technology. The nanoparticles invented have two sides: sticky to attach to surface and slippery to reduce friction. Particles attach to surface one by one forming film. This film compensate for some accumulated wear providing a repair like effect. In fact, research in the underlying technology had been funded by major US government funding agencies. These super-small nanoparticles get working in as little as 15 minutes. Simply warm up your engine and use the included syringe to squeeze 20ml of the dispersed nanomaterial into the oil tank. TriboTEX decreases engine noise while the cylinders in your engine begin to form coating on your vehicle bearings and cylinders. As a result ellipticity decreases and compression increases. It reduces friction ten times better than just oil. With all of the benefits, TriboTEX is made from ceramic material inert to the environment. With simple application you can do anywhere, TriboTEX keeps your car running longer and more efficiently.

Any word on when the backer kit comes out?
Lex Collazo
I appreciate the update and breaking radio silence. I'll be looking forward to getting my hands on this within the next 2-3 weeks. I also didn't realize that Kickstarter holds funds for up to 2 weeks before releasing them to you. Keep up the work. Cheers.
george mariscal
To Creator: An update would be much appreciated. Your backers deserve some kind of answer.
Lex Collazo
Seems we're left in the dark here waiting and wondering with no response from the creator. A simple update on where things are would be nice.
Have surveys been sent out yet?
hi have you shipped my order which includes the 3-3 and facebook post thanks
Nana Poku
+1 to taylooooor's comment. Awaiting details on how to provide you my shipping address.
How do I get you guys my address? Thank you!
Heri Sim
I need the diesel version but is still on the old family pack pledge level. Could someone help me with this?
Carl Holder
I know that they are working 24-7 for delivery, and as-you-know a successful product requires manufacturing and shipping. Be patient. You will see a nanoparticle lubrication.
Vijay Rathore
I am eager to try this product. When can I get my shipment?
Alex Feist
Surveys anytime soon?
Jeff Betz
Received mine today! Excited to try it and document everything I can for them. Thank you tribotex team!
Richard Starkey
Hoping to see some information about shipments very soon! I backed very early on, and have been checking daily to no avail.
Craig Peterson
I still haven't seen a response to my question from 3 days ago! Can I still add the 3-3 offer to my order? Let me know...
Jan Willem Koedam
Why is it such a big problem to take 5 minutes to reply to the comments? Not even a we made it THANKS update..... Perhaps it's only me, but it feels like you abandon your backers already :( ...but I can be wrong off course. I do think you need to work on your public service, and marketing
matthew larrubia
Hi TriboTEX Team! Congratulations on running a successful campaign! I'm sure I can speak for all the backers but we are excited to get our hands on this product and see it's true potential! Can you provide me with an ETA my cars about to die and I need to give it some TriboTEX juice ASAP!! Thanks!
And are we still having it shipped this month?
Thomas Truong
@Creator Thank you for the response! It really does help me assess my future plans when applying the TriboTEX when I break in the 2020 STI. That is why it was crucial that I know if the unused TriboTEX would still be applicable and efficient after sitting on the shelf for 4+ years. If you have any further information on the shelf life of TriboTEX, please message me back anytime! Thank You!
Hi Creator, I sent a personal message, could you confirm my super duper early pledge and what I will be getting specifically? Congrats,
Brett Harrison
What is the shelf life of TRIBOTEX?
Lex Collazo
When do we expect to recieve the backerlit surveys to punch in our info for shipment?
Sivaramakrishnan Malikkal
What happens to the coating during the 10K oil changes? Do they remain intact? Thanks.
Marilyn Holly
Congratulations, Pasha! So happy Kickstarter has worked so well for you.
gerry gionette
can you please tell me how to order this stuff thanks
Earnest Turpin
Waiting to try in my Harley ��
Adam Wood
I cannot wait to try this product!!!
Craig Peterson
Is it too late to add the 3-3 deal to my pledge???
Jason Beatdown Jr Beaton
@rocky, estimated delivery time is stated on the pledge you selected. Mine is May 2017
Rocky Woolverton
I would like to know when I can expect shipment.
Barry Giordano
Creator, Thanks for your reply, looking forward to receiving these...
Pasha Rudenko
Thank you to all of our backers! Your response, support, and communication had been phenomenal!
Jan Willem Koedam
Thanks for the Answers. My hope to get my 2 tubes quick, my care is du for a oil change next week :) One more question, you say, insert in a car that's on temperature (I do understand that, oil nice and warm thin and all true the motor. But then you say after inserting the formula, let the engine run "idle" for 15 minutes, why idle? And not drive it for 15 minutes? Thanks
Tony Le
Hi - thank you for the great info. By far one of the best projects I've seen (which is a lot). You respond with great detail to everyone and timely. Thank you!
Vikram Geevanathan
Will you ship to International backers same time as in US
Ronald Hodo
1 Earlybird family - 3 Tubes gasoline
Added - 1 Motorcycle tube
@Barry Giordano: I double checked your math and here's what you'd get... - One (1) diesel tube
- One (1) regular gasoline tube
- One (1) EXTRA gasoline tube with the 3-3 Deal That all comes out to $248 with shipping to the US. Looks good from here. :)
We appreciate your interest in our product. We do not usually comment on other companies products without looking at the existing background research. We have been busy developing our product and do not invest our time evaluating Suprotec. If you could point us to any literature about Suprotec we could familiarize ourselves with the product and its tribological function. We would love to learn more about these products. There are many additives in the market and additive packages designed to improve performance beyond that of base oil. Many of these products perform important functions in lubrication systems. What is your familiarity with the Supratec product? Do you feel that Supratec can perform on a similar level? If so, we would be interested in trying some comparison testing in the future. Descriptions of our products mechanism of DLC formation and other info can be found in peer reviewed journals. See below.…… Please point us to any literature and thank you for your interest in our product. TriboTEX Team
@Vijay Rathore: If you pledged for a diesel version ($130) and added $33 to the pledge for the bonus gasoline tube, you would get one (1) 20 ml diesel and one (1) 20 ml gasoline tube of TriboTEX. We'll send out a survey at the end of the campaign asking for shipping details. Since demand for TriboTEX exceeded our expectations, we do plan to be fulfilling shipments through June/July as stated in the timeline. We plan to start shipping as soon as the campaign ends and will let individual backers know as soon as we ship.
@David Tran: For a 2014 Camry V6, it looks like it holds 6.4 quarts (6.1 L) of oil. You should only need one application since one tube treats 3-8 liters of oil.
@Thomas Truong: We haven't done live on-road with a tube of TriboTEX that is 4 years old because the current formulation of isn't that old. We have done lab tests on the stability and have seen positive results. Vehicles that have used the original 2009 formulation are still on the road. It's hard to say what the 2020 Subaru WRX STI will look like since doing some light research it looks like they're going to introduce a hybrid model with the Impreza platform: Either way, TriboTEX has been tested in cars with turbos and hybrids, so it should be fine. If not, because you're on our Kickstarter we'll happily refund your pledge in the event it doesn't work for your the new car.
@Noel Schmidt: You have it right! Just add $30 to your current pledge to get the 10 pack, the bonus offer, and the motorcycle version. So the total should be $500 (10-pack) + $33 (bonus) + $30 (motorcycle) + $10 (shipping to US) = $573.
@Dominik Engelmann: Just add $30 to your current pledge to get the motorcycle version of TriboTEX. We'll send out a survey after the campaign ends to get your shipping address and make sure you receive everything you pledged for. The motorcycle version is used just like the regular version of TriboTEX -- add it to your engine oil like usual.
@citiboi: Thank YOU for the feedback and recommendations. You are correct that you'd only be able to get one extra tube for $33 per person. If you were to have a friend or family member sign up, we would extend the $33 deal to that person too.
@Kevin Perdue: You shouldn't see any problems using TriboTEX in a port injected car. The engine oil doesn't interact with the ports at all here and there isn't significant heat or friction present on the injectors with port injection. We've tested TriboTEX in dozens of vehicles and (knock on wood) we haven't had any major engine failures to date. Even if something did happen to your engine though, you would still be covered by your manufacturer's warranty since it is their duty to prove that the additive caused the engine to fail (rather than a manufacturing defect):
@Nick DeShane: We haven't seen any issues using TriboTEX in combination with other oil additive products. In the research we've seen that additional oil additive products actually help seed friction surfaces in the engine for TriboTEX's nanoparticles to latch onto and form the diamond-like protective coating.
@Tony Le: Congrats on the new car! We would recommend you wait until at least the first oil change (since the factory engine oil is different that what you'd pick up at a Walmart). Typically, people wait until the piston rings have been seated (about 4,000 miles): TriboTEX has a very long shelf life - you could store it for years in a cool, dry place without seeing a decline in performance. We haven't tested old product in a live on-road vehicle, but lab tests show long term stability. If you get it through our Kickstarter and it doesn't work, just send us back the old tube and we'll send you a new tube (new of course) free.
