Q. Why should I risk using METALON PRODUCTS
IN MY EQUIPMENT?
A. YOU ARE RIGHT! YOU SHOULDN’T! Nor should your valuable
and vital equipment be the “guinea -pigs” or “testing grounds” for any of the
“so-called” “new” or “revolutionary” products introduced by the “major
lubrication manufacturers”. Therefore, examine our
Briefs. The positive METALON experiences of other
companies may ‘parallel’ your maintenance needs.The family-operated
production of proprietary METALON PRODUCTS has been
manufacturing and delivering measurable performance benefits to many industries
since 1982.This longevity in Preventive Maintenance Lubrication is
earned by providing impeccable quality products, backed with experienced
Q. Why not buy “Cheaper” Lubricants?
A. Consider the Wisdom behind these age-old slogans: “Penny
wise, Pound foolish” and “Pay now or Pay (dearly) later”. Buyers often seek
“browny points” by opting for “cheaper” lubricants. This “false economy” creates
dyer consequences when the company suffers through increased maintenance costs,
reduced equipment longevity and very costly, non-productive downtime. There is
true wisdom in the Cost-Effectiveness of METALON PRODUCTS.
Q. Why should I expose my equipment to
“Unknown Lubricants” ?
Q. Are METALON PRODUCTS a PANACEA for all
A. NO. METALON
PRODUCTS WILL NOT replace metal that has been worn away by
excessive wear and friction. Nor will it change the tolerances between mating
surfaces. METALON will help to smooth out the rough surfaces
created by excessive wear and lack of lubrication. Its chemical burnishing
process may reduce the heat of friction that contributes to lube deterioration
and may extend the remaining operating life of the equipment. One must recognize
that old mating components may have substantial carbon deposit buildup that fill
the worn gaps. If these deposits are removed , as the solvents and detergents in
METALON PRODUCTS may do, then the
mating clearances will increase, perhaps leading to poorer performance. In such
cases, the excessively worn out equipment has virtually out-lived its normal
Q. Why should I use METALON PRODUCTS ?
A. For OVER A QUARTER CENTURY, our world-wide end user
network continually appreciates the Cost-Effective benefits derived from METALON PRODUCTS. It remains an integral part
of their preventive maintenance programs. OEM's (Original Equipment
Manufacturers) specify our METALON HI-TECH EP GREASE in their
service manuals. These facts serve well as customer confidence builders.
Q. Are METALON PRODUCTS any different than
A. Yes. Thousands of published articles, papers and
bulletins have focused for many years on the properties of the interface
lubricating media and its ability to reduce friction and wear of mating metal
surfaces, while maintaining its formulated integrity. In that pursuit, the major
oil manufacturers strive to improve their oil formulas. However, excessive
friction and wear result when this interface lube media deteriorates, wears off
or is non-existent.When the Proprietary formulations in METALON PRODUCTS contact ferrous and
non-ferrous surfaces, a Mono-Molecular Wear-Resistant Shield is created, that
has low shear, friction-reduction qualities. This newly, chemically-bonded
surface virtually resists excessive wear and friction, even in the absence of
common oils. Once formed, this bonded shield will not drain off, as oils do
during idle periods.
Friction produces heat. Excessive heat can accelerate the
deterioration of oil formulations. METALON
PRODUCTS help to reduce excessive heat, thereby helping to
preserve lubrication media integrity.
Q. How are the Cost-Effective benefits of
METALON PRODUCTS measured?
A. When consistently applied as directed, METALON PRODUCTS may help to reduce wear,
friction, system heat, lubricant degradation, improve performance, extend
maintenance intervals, increase mileage and equipment longevity, reduce costly
downtime, etc. Taking only these Cost-Effective benefits into account, the
slightly higher investment is more than offset by the substantial money
Q. What kind of Technical Support can I
A. In addition to our Engineering Data and MSDS information,
our well trained, technically informed Metalon Dealers and field sales force are
ready to address any problems or questions regarding METALON
PRODUCTS. They are backed by the expertise available from our head
offices located in Oakville, Ontario, Canada an in Raleigh, North Carolina.
information is on this Web Site.
Q. Are there any guarantees or warranties
A. Due to the extreme variation in equipment condition,
environmental variables and other factors ( freebee seekers), no guarantees or
warranties are provided. However, anyone who properly applies METALON PRODUCTS as directed and is not
satisfied with its performance, subject to investigating the circumstances, if
necessary, refunds may be granted.
We pride ourselves in the fact that our World-Wide Product
Liability Insurance Policy ($5,000.000.00) has never been tapped or invoked.
This suggests a very strong customer satisfaction and endorsement for METALON PRODUCTS.
Q. How will using METALON PRODUCTS in my
equipment affect the manufacturer s warranties?
A. METALON PRODUCTS
are virtually petroleum-based. So are most of the lubricating media that are
used in mechanical and hydraulic equipment today. Since new products are always
introduced, when any question of compatibility is a concern, we stress
compatibility checks be conducted to insure compatibility with the chemistry of
Q. What Liability Insurance is there in
A. This was answered in the body of an answer above.
Q. Have there ever been any legal actions
against METALON PRODUCTS?
A. This also has been addressed above.
Q. Where can I buy METALON PRODUCTS?
A. Dealers in METALON
PRODUCTS maintain substantial inventories to provide exceptional
service to their clients. However, any needs not currently available would be
directed to either of our head offices. Total customer satisfaction and
providing excellent technical support are the Missions of METALON PRODUCTS.
