How It Works

RVS Master™ Technology is unlike anything else on the market - our products create a Ceramic surface onto metal parts that are under constant friction with each other - such as cylinder walls, in bearings, and even the barrels of guns. The Ceramic layer has the advantage of being stronger than the metal, with a higher thermal resistance and a lower friction coefficient - properties that are very desirable where parts are subjected to extreme conditions. On this page you can read exactly how the chemical process works and what it does for your equipment and ultimately, your wallet.

The RVS Process

The friction and sliding surfaces of joint machine parts have sharp tops and deep gaps full of dirt and metal particles. When the mechanism is in operation, the friction surfaces make contact. The sharp tops of the edgy surfaces collide with each other and tear the oil films, which breaks down the oil.

The sharp tops break, which results in metal and dirt particles mixing in with the oil. In the contact spots, small flashes (sparks) occur resulting in local high temperatures and lubricant destruction, which further breaks the oil down. As the mechanism operates further, more friction takes place and more sharp tops break, resulting in the pollution and break down of the lubricant.

The RVS compound particles are relatively large in comparison with the tops and gaps of the surface (the micro relief). When these sharp tops break, they serve as a "milling" device for the RVS particles. In the contact spots, the temperature levels increase to 900 - 1400°C (~1650 - 2550 °F), which leads to a chemical reaction that can be best described as a metal-melting process on a microscopic scale, "molding" the RVS particles onto the metal surfaces. New Ferro silicate (i.e. metal ceramic) crystals are formed. What makes this reaction possible are the catalysts incorporated into the RVS compound. This is the very know-how of RVS Master™.

As the process goes on, a deep cleaning process starts and the dirt particles stuck in-between the gaps of the friction surfaces are removed and "thrown out" into the lubricant. If the oil is very dirty, it has to be replaced (see application instructions), otherwise the dirt particles can fill up the gaps again and prevent the Ferro silicate structure formation.

If the cleaning process is carried out in the way it is supposed to be, one can notice changes in the operation of the equipment being treated as soon as one hour after the treatment. The process goes on and the Ferro silicate structure rises over the level of the original metal surface. Think of it as an ocean rising to the level of the highest peak in a mountain range, the uneven peaks vanish beneath the smooth ocean surface.

The thickness of the new surface structure can never exceed the optimal level. That is, the "ocean" can never exceed the level of the "highest peak". It is directly connected with the mass of the RVS compound particles participating in the process and the heat energy available from the friction surfaces. When the friction level and heat extraction are low enough, the Ferro silicate process ceases. A new smooth and durable Ceramic layer is now integrated onto the old jagged metal surface.


In all types of engines you will observe the following effects after applying RVS Master™:

Improved Compression

Increased Power

Reduced Fuel Consumption

Lower CO, NO & HC Emissions

When treating mechanical equipment other than an Engine you will observe the following results:

> Smoother operation of components, with reduced vibration

> Friction of components will be reduced, producing less heat

> The wear rate of treated components will decrease, making them last longer

> Only one complete treatment is needed for 60,000 km/40,000 miles, or ~1500hrs of operation. These figures are approximate and vary depending on driving/operational conditions

In Firearms you will observe the following results:

  • Ceramic layer formed on inside of gun barrel

  • Reduced friction inside barrel will provide for higher muzzle velocity and improved accuracy

  • Extended life of gun barrel

  • Ceramic is corrosion-resistant, further increasing gun life

  • Ceramic has a higher thermal resistance than metal, therefore gun will be slower to overheat during rapid-fire action, increasing durability under extreme conditions

  • Clear isolating and heat-proof properties
