RVS TECHNOLOGY® Transmission Protection & Restoration


Where there is friction, there is also wear as a natural consequence. In transmissions, synchronisation plates are worn, as a result of which the transmission becomes stiff to use and it begins to produce noise. Such a situation can be easily cured with RVS Transmission Protection & Restoration products.

This product family is intended for treating automobile transmissions of different kinds. You can read a technical description of the RVS Technology below under the Overview header.

The easiest type to treat is an automatic transmission, the oil amount and quality of which can be check via a dipstick. If you cannot lift a vehicle with a manual transmission, it is easier to contact a small repair shop and ask them to add the RVS product into the gearbox. Often you part with a small amount of money, and when you start driving the car, you notice pretty soon that the gears become easier to switch and the transmission works more accurately, more like a new one. Select the product based on the transmission type and oil capacity.

You can find out the transmission oil capacity in the user’s manual of the vehicle.

RVS Technology® is a technique that has the capacity to form a Triboceramic surface structure on metal friction contact zones (metal-ceramic), while the mechanism is in its normal productive operation. RVS has unique properties; it protects and prevents the surfaces and mechanisms of wear and tear. RVS is the only technology that has the ability to restore sliding surfaces, in good case, up to their original shape and tolerances. The new surface structure takes place autoreactively, without
disassembling the equipment being restored. In practice this means, without down times and loss of production.

The core of the technology is its ability to identify objects and points prone to wear and damage by “locating” the source of the thermal energy (heat) produced by the friction and its capacity to modify these friction surfaces. The process ceases automatically as the required result is obtained.

The thickness of the born structure depends on the wear rate and the hardness on the surface pressure during the process.

The clearances in every friction pair in the mechanism are optimised to a level hard to achieve by current application methods. All this takes place without down times and needs for expensive spare parts and costs of logistic, handling or remote processing. The result is a reliable mechanism for a long time.

  • Takes place productively and automatically
  • No disassembly, handling or remote processing
  • No costly and time consuming Down Times
  • Prolongs life cycle of components (30-70%)
  • Reduces replacement demand of costly spareparts as wear process almost stops

  • Improves predictability of mechanism function
  • Reduces energy & fuel consumption (5-20%)
  • Reduces emissions – Reduced environmental strain (10 – 50%)
  • Reduces vibration & noise level (10-50%)
  • Reduces need/Prolongs life cycle of lubricants (30-50%)
  • Possibility to use less expensive lubricants with less additives
  • Less corrosion problems
  • Survival of the mechanism in case of accidental loss of lubricant!

Application by experienced mechanic recommended.


What exactly is RVS Technology®?

RVS Technology® Tribo(nano-)Ceramics can be considered as an advanced mode of cure for engines, gearboxes, and other mechanisms. If your device has normal wear problems like noise, smoking, too high consumption of oil or fuel, decrease of power and compression level, unbalance and vibrations RVS Technology has the capacity to restore it.
RVS Technology works also as a preventive method, protecting your mechanisms against coming wear. For example treatment of car parts will protect your car from serious problems in the future.

What does RVS mean ?

Restores Vital Surfaces

Is RVS an oil additive?

No! Unlike oil additives on the market, RVS Technology® products produce a nano-ceramic layer that integrates with the metal friction surfaces of your engine, transmission, differential etc. That’s why it lasts at least 100,000 km (60,000 miles) and oil changes do not affect it. RVS does not affect the properties of oil. The idea of oil additives is to improve the oil properties and they have to be re-applied at every oil change.

What are cold starts and will your products help reduce/eliminate them?

Cold start is a phenomenon observed when an engine is started in cold weather – during the first few seconds, the oil is thick and oil pressure is low, and the engine is starved of oil – that causes parts inside to wear out due to the friction caused by lack of proper lubrication. The Triboceramic layer created by RVS Technology® protects the components inside an engine from this oil starvation because even without oil, the triboceramic layer is very slippery, thus minimizing the damage caused by cold starts.

Is RVS Technology just another oil additive?

No! Unlike oil additives on the market, RVS Technology® products produce a Triboceramic layer that integrates with the metal friction surfaces of your engine, transmission, differential etc. That’s why it lasts for 60,000 miles (100,000km) and oil changes do not affect it. The idea of oil additives is to improve the oil properties and have to be re-applied at every oil change.

Do I need to re-apply RVS Technology® at every oil change?

No! As mentioned above, our products react directly with the metal components, forming a Triboceramic layer that is durable and that becomes an integral part of the metal components. Oil changes do not affect the RVS Technology® treatment.

How do I know what is the right product for me?

Our products are categorized by the oil capacity of the device you are treating. If your engine holds 4 qts/liters of oil, you need a G4 treatment. If it holds 5, you need the next highest number – G6. An automatic transmission with 6 qts/liters of ATF needs a T6A, and so on. If you are unsure of the fluid capacities of your particular vehicle, they can usually be found in your owner’s manual, the link provided on our web page, or you can simply contact us and we will find it out for you!

Does RVS Technology® reduce the operating temperature of my engine?

Yes! Due to the lowered internal friction, the engine runs cooler after a RVS Technology® treatment. This can be beneficial in warm climates where vehicles are subjected to extreme heat. On the other hand, one has to keep in mind that the engine will not run too cool even after an RVS Technology® treatment if the thermostat operates correctly, and RVS Technology® only diminishes the risk of overheating.

My engine feels tired and has low compression. I was quoted $1800 for a rebuild. Can RVS Technology® help?

Yes! RVS Technology® can definitely help. The low compression and lack of power are usually caused by worn out cylinder walls. The Triboceramic layer created by RVS Technology® seals the gaps and restores compression/power potentially saving you thousands.

I’m getting really bad gas mileage. Can RVS Technology® improve it?

Yes, it can! The reasons for high gas mileage can be numerous. Regardless of the reason, you will notice an improvement after a full RVS Technology® treatment. The reduced mechanical friction allows your engine to run more efficiently. The result is typically a 5-12% improvement in gas mileage, casewise even more.

Can RVS Technology® be used in vehicles with synthetic oil?

Yes. RVS Technology® products are fully compatible with all types of oils.

My automatic transmission slips. Can your products save it?

If it’s caused by a valve problem RVS may help, but if the transmission slips because the clutches inside of it are worn out RVS cannot help. The clutches have paper-kind of mass surfaces and RVS Technology® works only on metal parts. Sometimes the problem is caused by bad shifter solenoids, which is an electrical problem, and this case they need to be repaired/replaced accordingly.

If RVS Technology® doesn’t fix slippage in an automatic transmission, then how does it help?

There are many metal gears, bearings, and valves as well as an oil pump inside automatic transmissions that benefit from the effects of an RVS Technology® treatment. Friction surfaces of these parts are treated and the friction between them is reduced, allowing your transmission to operate smoother and quieter. Internal heat production that burns the oil and is the main cause for transmission failure is reduced, extending the life of the oil and transmission itself.

If RVS isn’t an oil additive product, why is the oil capacity such important information in choosing the products?

The oil capacity is comparatively easy to find out, and normally it defines sufficiently well how much there is to treat in the mechanism.
In industrial applications with external oil tanks and relatively low flow speed, other criteria are used for calculating the appropriate RVS Technology™ product amount.

How do you carry out the treatment procedures?

In treating mechanisms, you usually use the lubricant used in the mechanism as a carrier that delivers the RVS substance to its destination. In the simplest cases, you just pour the RVS substance into the device and use it as usual for a certain period of time. See detailed application instructions for different types of RVS Technology® products on the product page under different product groups. To apply RVS Technology® products in industrial equipment, contact us for instructions.

When is it best to treat an automobile engine, before or after an oil change?

Neither way is wrong. In new or almost new engines it doesn’t even make a big difference.

The higher the mileage, the dirtier the engine internals usually are. During the treatment procedure, dirt is removed from the surfaces and it gets to the oil. That’s why it is often recommendable to change the oil before the second treatment that we recommend for engines with a mileage higher than 40,000 km (~25,000 miles). Therefore the most optimal time for starting the RVS Technology® treatment procedures with a used engine is about 400 km (250 miles) before a scheduled oil change. The second treatment is then carried out after the oil change, and the RVS Technology® substance can be left in the engine until the following regular oil change.

Can the G4 product be used in a motorcycle with a wet clutch?

RVS Technology creates triboceramic surface on friction pairs, both surfaces of which are metallic. As one of two surfaces in mutual contact in wet clutches is a mass plate, RVS Technology doesn’t affect the clutch.

We have plenty of references on this topic in motorcycles, to name a few: Pekka Päivärinta (five-time world champion in sidecar racing) has used RVS Technology products in his racing bikes from the 2014 season (in his previous BMW S 1000 RR and Honda CBR 600 RR motors and the Yamaha YZF R6 engine used in the 2019 season). Markka Racing uses our products in all its bikes.

Can RVS products be used in differentials with a friction lock?

Yes, they can. When at least one of the surfaces is made of material other than metal the RVS substance does not react and it does not affect the surfaces in any way.

Can RVS products be used in ethanol engines?

Yes, they can! The active substance in RVS Technology products does not react with ethanol in any way.
Furthermore, using RVS in ethanol engines is even more recommended than in gasoline engines as the lubricating properties of ethanol are worse than those of gasoline, which, in turn, makes wearing processes more intensive. When entering lubricants, ethanol reduces their properties more than gasoline does, and, with triboceramic surface, the extra wear can be prevented.
