Fix slipping or noisy automatic transmissions with FriktionTek®
FriktionTek® simultaneously cleans, restores and protects worn parts creating a smoother, more durable surface. It effectively optimizes performance while reducing friction and wear.
While the science is advanced, the application is simple. FriktionTek® by XADO works by applying a long-lasting ceramic-metal (cermet) surface to automatic tranmsissions while you drive. It penetrates metal surfaces up to 30 microns deep and forms a strong new ceramic-metal bond.
By reducing friction and heat, the technology provides similar benefits to traditional lubricants but works in a completely different way. FriktionTek® does not modify the transmission fluid. Instead, it modifies the surface structure of the metal to make it act more like a ceramic. Ceramic-metal alloys (known for their strength, durability, smoothness, high heat resistance and regenerative properties) have been used for decades in racing, industry, aviation and nuclear propulsion. With FriktionTek®, a ceramic-metal coating can now be applied without disassembly. By eliminating labor, FriktionTek® provides a huge cost savings with the same benefit.

FriktionTek® by XADO is an eco-friendly product. It is non-toxic and non-flammable. FriktionTek® Ceramic transmission fluid additive consists of a natural ceramic compound suspended in a synthetic gel. It contains no PTFEs, metals, detergents, or waxes. Unlike other ceramic treatments, FriktionTek does not contain harmful additives like chlorine and carbon.
Due to the particle size, FriktionTek® cannot clog oil filters or hoses. It only works on metal surfaces and has no effect on fibrous material such as clutch plates, seals or gaskets. FriktionTek® is compatible with all automatic transmission fluid types and oil additives.
Warm your engine to its normal running temperature.
Add FriktionTek® to transmission fluid filler tube. To help the gel travel down the filler tube. we recommend that you warm the gel to 90ºF.
Drive for at least 15 minutes.
FriktionTek can be warmed by placing the sealed cartridge on your car's defroster on high while warming engine or you can place it in the microwave on High for 2.5 minutes (be sure to take off tip cap first and pull back plunger to allow for expansion. For sealed transmissions, take your vehicle to your local dealer or mechanic for installation.
Most vehicles: 18 ML cartridge
Long haul tractors: two 18 ML cartridges.
