Rislone 3X Concentrated Engine Oil Supplement with Zinc Treatment is a great performance booster that helps protect older internal engine components. Modern conventional motor oils lack the metal protection older engines need, Rislone 3x Concentrated Engine Oil Supplement is a petroleum oil performance supplement containing ZDDP (zinc dialkyldithiophosphate) Zinc and Phosphorus EP (extreme pressure) additives to help protect internal engine components, including pistons, flat tappet camshafts, lifters, pushrod tips and the rest of the valve train. Basically, it makes newer oils, work in older engines.
This high performance formula stabilizes the motor oil to insure against viscosity and thermal breakdown. It also reduces friction and wear, especially at start-up, helping to eliminate dry starts. Less friction means less wear and a cooler-running, longer lasting engine.
Rislone 3X Concentrated Engine Oil Supplement with Zinc Treatment also enhances regular motor oil turning it into a high performance lubricant suitable for older engines and racing applications, the clinging action of this high performance formula keeps bearings and other internal engine parts lubricated where normal oils fail.
For best protection use with every oil change. Can be used during oil change, or added in-between oil changes. Do not overfill.
Dosage & Directions
Oil Viscosity is approximately equivalent to a high 20 weight motor oil, which should not change existing motor oil viscosity at the recommended dosage rate.
PETROL ENGINES (Cars, UTES & Light Trucks)
1996 and older – Add one bottle to engine crankcase.
1997 to 2004 – Add approximately ½ bottle (162 mL) to engine.
DIESEL ENGINES (Light, Medium & Heavy-Duty)
2006 and older – Add one bottle to engine crankcase for every 5 litres of oil capacity.
For 4-stroke marine & motorcycles, agricultural, industrial (Dry Clutch Only) and racing applications use 68 mL for every 1L of oil capacity.
NOTE: Do not use as an engine break in additive. Rislone Engine Oil Supplement with Zinc Treatment contains the correct amount of ZDDP and other additives important to protecting your engine for everyday use.
Use as directed in Petrol & Diesel engines, antique & classic cars, motorcycles
(4 stroke except wet clutch), tractors, agricultural & industrial machinery, and all racing applications. Designed for engines requiring SL / CI rated oil and older. This includes 2004 and older Petrol engines & 2006 and older Diesel engines.
Rislone works with all petroleum based motor oils including conventional, high kilometer and synthetic formulas.
What is Rislone Engine Oil Supplement with Zinc Treatment?
Rislone Engine Oil Supplement with Zinc Treatment is a petroleum oil performance supplement “booster” containing high levels of ZDDP (zinc dialkyldithiophosphate) Zinc and Phosphorus additives to help better protect internal engine components including pistons, flat tappet camshafts, lifters and the valvetrain. This is especially important at engine start up, when most wear is done. That is why they say one of the worst things you can do is start your engine.
Why do I need ZDDP?
Over the years motor oils have been updated to meet the needs of changing engine designs. In the past the oil companies were able to do this and keep the engine oil backward compatible, meaning this engine oil worked on new and old engines. However, now with the reduction of Zinc in the oil, these oils sold today do not offer the protection needed for older engines.
How does Rislone Engine Oil Supplement with Zinc (ZDDP) Treatment work?
The common element between all of the engine components is the oil. Oil is the life-blood of the engine and is pumped under pressure to the internal parts. Engine oils are generally used to reduce friction between moving parts. In addition to lubricating, motor oil must cool, provide corrosion protection and a method of removing contaminants. The main parts needing oil for lubrication is the valvetrain including the camshaft & lifters, bearings and pistons. When installed, Rislone Engine Oil Supplement with Zinc Treatment cools and lubricates these moving parts better then oil alone. The clinging properties hold the oil to metal parts preventing wear and dry starts. Special additives also prevent oil thinning at high temperatures where normal oil fails. The ZDDP creates the sacrificial (disposable) layer on any component where metal to metal contact happens preventing the metal itself from being worn away.
What are the benefits of Rislone Engine Oil Supplement with Zinc Treatment over other engine additives?
Some additives are designed for break-in use only. Other additives make wild claims about coating the inside of the engine with Teflon type additives, but no real proof has been established to back up these claims. Rislone Engine Oil Supplement with Zinc Treatment uses proven ZDDP technology along with our 90 plus years of oil additive knowledge to protect the moving parts of your engine to be used after break-in.
Can I use Rislone Engine Oil Supplement with Zinc Treatment in my newer vehicle?
No, you should not use Engine Oil Supplement with Zinc Treatment in 2005 and newer Petrol and 2007 and newer diesel engines. Current oils have enough Zinc to protect moving parts inside newer engines. However, to help prevent sludge and keep that engine clean, it is recommended to use Rislone Engine Treatment p/n 44102.
How is Rislone Engine Oil Supplement with Zinc Treatment different than break in additives?
Break in additives contain extremely high concentrations of ZDDP and are only designed to be left in the engine for a short period of time. Many of these additives don’t contain detergents or other lubricity additives important to keeping your engine clean and lubricated for thousands of kilometres. Rislone Engine Oil Supplement with Zinc Treatment not only contains the correct amount of ZDDP, but also the other additives important to protecting your engine. Do not use as a break in additive.
How can the Rislone Engine Oil Supplement with Zinc Treatment help prevent dry starts?
Rislone Engine Oil Supplement with Zinc Treatment contains copolymer esters (Tackifier) that have an affinity (attraction) for metal surfaces. This allows the oil to hold onto the metal surface instead of just running off like normal motor oil does over time. This along with the ZDDP creates a double layer of protection.
Will it work in synthetic oil?
Yes, Rislone works with all petroleum-based motor oils including conventional, high kilometer and synthetic formulas.
When should I add to my engine?
For best protection, use Rislone Engine Oil Supplement with Zinc Treatment with every oil change. Also can be used to top off oil as needed to improve engine protection between oil changes.
How long does Rislone Engine Oil Supplement with Zinc Treatment last?
When used in combination with good quality motor oil, Rislone Engine Oil Supplement with Zinc Treatment will last until your next oil change. Follow the manufacturers recommended oil change intervals for your particular vehicle and make sure to add with each oil change.
Can I use Rislone Engine Oil Supplement with Zinc Treatment in my diesel engine?
Yes, it is recommended to use at a 7% ratio for all 2006 and older diesel engines.
