What makes us different

What makes Petron PlusTM (pronounced Pet-tron Plus) and Petronomics® (pronounced Pet-tron-nomics) products unique. There is more to it than one thinks.

First of all, the waste of resources resulting from high friction and wear were estimated at $194 Billion Dollars by Dr. E. Rabinowicz, of MIT in the United States alone, and well over $5 Billion Dollars by the National Research Council’s Associate Committee on Tribology (the study and application of the principles of friction) in Canada. The potential savings offered by improved lubrication and a better understanding of the science of Tribology (the study and application of the principles of friction) are correspondingly great. Is it any wonder that the lubrication of machinery never receives much consideration and when a serious problem does occur, most people tend to blame it on the lubricant itself, instead of learning how to recognize the root that caused the problem.

These short comings in the understanding of lubricants and lubrication have lead many maintenance specialists to make incorrect and costly assumptions about lubricants and their application. Furthermore, executive officers around the world are full of bright ideas, as well as meaning engineers and managers who treat the aspect of correct lubrication and the application of proper tribological techniques, as either unnecessary, too costly, or both.

These same people mistakenly assume that the consequences of friction and wear are “normal” and refuse to take advantage of the huge savings and improved machinery reliability which could be achieved with the proper lubricants, understanding Tribology (the study and application of the principles of friction), and paying more attention to the problems related to friction, and wear.
The word “Tribology” (the study and application of the principles of friction)was introduced in the 1960’s to mean the “science and technology of the wear of interacting surfaces in relative motion and associated subjects and practices”.Tribology (the study and application of the principles of friction) effectively coordinates many technical disciplines, such as chemistry, metallurgy, machine design, lubrication engineering, etc., for solving friction and wear problems.

The main cause of wear in engines and other lubricated systems is abrasion and oil contamination. It is ironic that while engineers and tradesmen are taught how to design, build, or repair equipment, few are taught an understanding of the inter-relationship between friction, wear and lubrication and how to reduce the problems associated with these aspects of equipment operation.

The above brings us to Petron PlusTM and Petronomics® Products. For almost a quarter of a century, we have been providing Petron Plus and Petronomics products to the agricultural, aviation, aerospace, city/states agencies, food/drug mfg., hospitals, hotels/motels & commercial properties, industrial plants, commercial, mining/quarries & cement plants, automotive manufactures, industrial fleet, motorsports race teams, metalworking facilities, oil companies, pulp & paper mfg., power plants, printing & publishing, recreation operations, steel/metal operations, transportation operations, university & schools, military and government applications around the world.

Petronomics® Manufacturing Group, Inc. (PMGI). PMGI manufactures over 305 finished products with 1,320 sku (part numbers) numbers. They range from finished synthetic, non-synthetic and partial synthetic motor oils, ATF’s, automotive gear oils, industrial gear oils, hydraulic fluids, compressor oils, natural gas engine oils, automotive a/c lubes, turbine oils, refrigeration oils, natural gas compressor oils, aerosol products, greases, metalworking fluids, to gasoline additives, diesel fuel additives, industrial cleaning products, and automotive and fleet cooling systems cleaners and corrosion inhibitors & treatments. Some of these products have H-1 and H-2 food grade approval by USDA. PMGI has a product line that meets certain Military Specifications. PMGI also manufactures a line of supplemental products that can be added to existing lubricants.

Petron PlusTM Formula 7 supplemental technology is not an oil additive, nor a replacement petroleum product, but a Patented new package of high-tech petroleum and synthetic constituents chemically bonded together in a patented new process to form a totally new EP ingredient, (Petron PlusTM Formula 7 and Petronomics® Formula 7), which may easily be blended in small proportions into virtually any standard lubricant currently available.

The Petron PlusTM molecules are very small, 0.1 micron in size (a human hair is 50 microns). If you could imagine for a moment …Solid additives (i.e., PTFE, Teflon® (a registered trademark of DuPont), Moly, Graphite, etc.) are 2 to 10 microns in size. This would be how a beach ball would compare to a golf ball. Petron Plus is much the size of a cold virus, and in that conjunction can’t be stopped.

When Petron Plus/Petronomics is added to any vehicle or heavy duty equipment’s existing lubricant package, (petroleum or synthetic), Petron Plus/Petronomics significantly strengthens the base-lubricant’s overall protective qualities and enhances its existing additive base by providing maximum rust inhibition, anti-oxidation, and the newest, most powerful friction reducing anti-wear agent available.


Petron Plus/Petronomics protects by impregnating metal at contact and wears points to tremendously reduce friction and wear at those points. The products perform well at any temperature, but work best at higher temperatures generated by machinery operation or friction. The penetrating formula does not easily burn, wash, or wear away.

Tests have been run by some of the largest companies around the world, with excellent results. From Europe, Egypt, to China, as well as a highly respected independent research and testing laboratory in San Antonio, Texas, regularly conducts competitive performance tests on Petron Plus and Petronomics products. These tests are the most stringent for products of this type, and consistent results demonstrate that Petron Plus/Petronomics exceeds the performance of all competitors and significantly enhances performance characteristics of high-quality base motor oils and gear oils.

Most users realize immediate multiple benefits when Petron Plus/Petronomics products are introduced into a broad range of machinery, equipment, metalworking, or vehicle applications:

· Helps substantial to increase equipment operating life, with consistent “like new” performance.
· Helps to decrease energy or fuel required for normal equipment operation.
· Helps to increase horsepower and performance output, even under high load, high performance demands.
· Helps to decrease operating temperatures in gear boxes, bearing housing and engines.
· Helps to keep lubricant contamination in suspension, thereby increasing lubricant life.
· Helps increase the ability of base lubricants to prevent rust and corrosion, resist oxidation.
· Helps to significantly reduce maintenance downtime, labor, and parts replacement costs.
· Helps to increase overall efficiency and productivity of operating equipment.
· Helps to increase base lubricant life, thereby decrease drain intervals.
· Helps to increase profitability for firms operating the equipment utilizing Petron Plus products.
