Xado Technology reconditions and restores the surface of mechanisms!
XADO has developed the unique process of mechanical revitalization. This process changes the way machines all over the world are being operated and maintained. Industrial and transport companies, electric power stations, automobile maintenance stations, and many other customers worldwide take advantage of our revolutionary new technology.
Watch the following video to understand XADO technology better:
1. What is revitalization?
The term "revitalization" (from Latin "vita" - life) literally means "returning to life".
The discovery of the revitalization phenomenon is based on unique physical-chemical
processes occurring under certain conditions in the friction zone.
XADO contains a building material and a unique energy activator which uses excess
friction energy to create a new surface.
The process of revitalization stops as soon as the part (or parts) restores its geometry.
Revitalization provides individual adjustment of mating parts, and all rubbing surfaces
appear to be covered with not quite clear glass.

2. How big can the build-up be?
XADO revitalizants will add the very necessary microns to the worn pump elements, "hundredths" to the engine parts, and "tenths" to the cog wheels. This is REPAIR.
3. What are the properties of this coating?
XADO coating is very hard, quite smooth, and corrosion resistant. It has a micro hardness of 650-750 kg/square millimetre. Surface roughness of the most of new parts is between 0.9 and 2.1 Ra while XADO assures you a surface roughness of 0.06 Ra.
4. I have a new automobile. Why do I need XADO?
The run-in period is a time of adjustment of engine parts. During this period the surface layer of the parts suffers a level of wear. XADO revitalizants allow the run-in period to occur with minimal loss, and offers the unique opportunity to protect and tune the parts by covering them with the cement (ceramic/metallic) coating.
5. I just had a major overhaul done, do I need XADO?
XADO Revitalization is especially vital for engines that have been overhauled. During a regular overhaul it is impossible to ensure the original hardness of the surface layer of the parts. XADO is able to recondition these parts and restore surface hardness.
6. Could the cement layer growth cause engine seizure?
No, it could not. The process of revitalization is a self-regulating one. It is most active in the places of the extreme wear where there are all necessary conditions for the cement coating growth; high temperature, extreme pressure, much friction. As soon as the surface is reconditioned and cement coating is formed, the process stops as there are no reasons for the further growth.
7. Will the cement layer peel off during running?
No, it will not. The diffusion (not adhesion) of metal and revitalizant results in a monolithic and solid crystal buildup to the depth of 10 to 30 microns. Therefore, there is no clear border between the matrix surface and the cement layer.
8. Why does the amount of gel to be applied depend on the volume of oil system but not on the wear degree?
Because the amount of oil in the engine and other joints and units is proportional to the area of the operating surfaces. One should take into account the volume of the oil system because the calculated amount of gel is sufficient to restore any degree of wear.
9. Which kind of oil is the best for treatment - mineral or synthetic?
It makes no difference because the revitalizant is compatible with any kind of oil and fuel. It does not react with these oils and does not change their viscosity. The oil only carries revitalizant to friction surfaces. XADO is not an oil supplement, it is for repair purposes only.
10. Should the oil be changed before the engine treatment?
It is recommended only if the oil resources are not sufficient for the full cycle of revitalization.
11. Does XADO settle in the crank-case while the car is parked for a long time?
No, it does not if you follow the directions when applying XADO. XADO should only be applied to a warmed engine. The engine should then be run for at least two minutes at idle. This allows the revitalizant to localize on the friction surfaces.
12. Should I add XADO after each oil change?
No. The coating is formed during the first 930-1,240 miles (1,500-2,000 km) of running. After treatment, you may change your oil as usual. The "XADO effect" remains after several oil changes (up to ten).
13. How does XADO help to save fuel?
As a rule, excessive fuel consumption is caused by wear of the cylinder-piston group. After revitalization, the geometry of the parts is restored, and fuel consumption returns to normal. In addition, a lower friction factor (surface roughness of 0.06 Ra instead of the usual 0.9 to 2.1 Ra) significantly reduces losses caused by friction. As a result, you can save up to 30% of fuel at idle and 5-7% of fuel when driving.
14. Can I treat a two-stroke engine?
There is a special compound gel for reconditioning the cylinders in two-stroke engines. It can be used for treating any mechanical items, such as scooters, lawn-mowers and chain-saws.
15. Can valve guide rods be reconditioned?
Valves are protected with special oil-scraper cups (valve seals), so the amount of oil getting onto the valves, and in respect of revitalizant, is slight. If the valves' wear is minimal, this is sufficient to protect and preserve the valves. If the wear is extreme, it is necessary to replace the valves and the guide sleeves.
16. I bought an automobile and found out that the previous owner used some kinds of additives. Can I use XADO in this case?
Of course you can. The XADO revitalizants are compatible with all kinds of additives.
17. If one takes your ads for granted, does it mean it's possible to run with no oil at all?
XADO does not recommend that you drive your car without oil. XADO produces revitalizants for repair, reconditioning and protection of the machinery. We told you about the run with a dry crank-case only to demonstrate the quality of our coatings, and to assure you that by treating your car, you will be protected in the event of extreme circumstances. Besides the repair and savings, your car will be protected with XADO, you can count on it!
18. How long will the coating obtained last?
Say the compression in the cylinder before treatment was 142.2 psi (10 kgf/cm2) and after treatment, it became 184.9 psi (13 kgf/cm2). The manufacturer guarantees that this performance will remain the same for a year at any mileage. In practice, your car can run 60,000 miles (100,000 km) without loss of improved performance. Then, you can treat your engine again.
19. What does the guarantee imply?
At our authorized service centres, qualified technicians determine the cause of defects in the operation of your car and apply a suitable treatment. You receive a warranty coupon. We guarantee the stability of the performance improved for a year at any reasonable mileage when applied by an authorised repair technician. Having visited our service centres, you can be sure your car is properly treated.
20. Can all compressors be treated by XADO technology?
Yes, practically all compressors can be treated by XADO technology. The benefits of the treatment are: increase of oil pressure, elimination of clearances in the crank gear, elimination of ovality and obliquity in the cylinder-piston group and reconditioning of worn surfaces up to 0.5 mm. The oxygen compressors cannot be treated by XADO because of the absence of oil.
21. What should I do when it is difficult to remove spent grease?
In this case, it is recommended to use the "Repairing" Grease. Add it directly to the regular grease. The high concentration of revitalizant in "Repairing" Grease makes it possible to restore the extreme worn parts up to their original sizes and ensures a practically unlimited service period later on. All XADO Greases are mutually compatible.
22. How to revitalize joints and units operating on greases?
By replacing the regular grease with XADO Greases. First, you should diagnose the degree of joint wear. Choose the right XADO Grease:
1. "Protective" Grease is used in new joints and units, or in those with insignificant wear (up to 10%). It is a universal substitute for any grease.
2. "Restoring" Grease contains more active components. It not only protects parts but restores their geometry as well. It is used in joints and units with a degree of wear up to 50 %.
3. "Repairing" Grease is used in joints and units with a degree of wear up to 80 %.
23. We have a lot of machine tools. What would be the benefits of XADO treatment?
A machine tool is a rather complex mechanism. Naturally, XADO revitalization improves all its performances. For example, the spindle, the main part of any machine tool, operates at high speed and under heavy loads. It wears considerably and quickly. Professionals know that it will take a considerable effort and time to repair a machine tool. The high-speed XADO Greases will protect and recondition the parts of your machine tool.
24. Is the cement layer formed on non-ferrous metals?
Yes, a cement layer is formed on all "metal-metal" friction pairs, including non-ferrous metals and any alloys.
25. I have seen some ads about revitalizants for rifled barrels. Is this a XADO product too?
Yes. XADO revitalizant for rifled barrels is one of our new products. It is especially designed for restoring and protecting the barrel bore. It ensures the following benefits:
. reconditioning and repair of the inner barrel surface
. improved accuracy of hits
. ten times increased wear resistance and endurance of the barrel
. maximum killing power for given ammunition
. flatter trajectory
. more spin
26. Does the barrel need any preparation before revitalization?
No special preparation is required. A regular cleaning of the bore is enough.
27. What is the breaking point at which XADO will fail to restore the barrel?
The XADO revitalizant improves the firing performance of arms at any wear degree.
28. What is the service life of a reconditioned barrel?
A special experiment was needed to answer this question. XADO revitalizant for barrels of rifled arms has passed very severe tests in "Rzhevka" certified test laboratory of fire-arms. The results of the revitalizant were examined on different arms, new and worn, on both chrome and non-chrome barrels. The experts' conclusion was specific: XADO revitalizant has the ability to remarkably improve the accuracy of any rifled arms. In one powerfully convincing test a brand new SKS rifle was treated with XADO. You would think that nothing could be improved with such a rifle. But after the treatment, the accuracy of hits improved by 23%. Then 200 consecutive shots were fired. The barrel became so hot that the varnish on the forearm began to melt. It was cooled in a brutal manner - plunged in a bucket of water. The witnesses were all anxious about the results of such an experiment. Even after this abuse, the radius of the group of shots was reduced by a surprising 46.6 %. The service life tests carried out at Rzhevsk allow us to claim that the service life is 10,000 shots with no loss of improved performance. Under normal loads, you'll be able to keep the barrel in an ideal condition at all times by treating it once a year with the green gel. This is completed by applying gel to each of 10 rounds of ammunition and firing 10 times. Alternatively, the same gel may be applied once after every 1,000 shots.
29. Does the treated barrel need any maintenance?
No special maintenance is required. Moreover, the protected inner surface of the barrel is more corrosion resistant than conventional coatings.
30. Does it make any difference whether the barrel is chrome or non-chrome?
The revitalizant improves the shooting performances of a barrel having been made of both chrome or non-chrome.
31. I have a smooth-bore gun with a pit in the chrome coating. Will XADO help?
Yes, it will. The main point is to observe the revitalization principle, i.e. to ensure sufficient friction between the bullet and barrel surface. For this, you might want a bullet of special design. In this field we have the special experience and practical skills of both our experts and firearms fans. For more detail, do not hesitate to contact XADO.
32. Is XADO toxic?
No. All our products have a sanitary permit for usage in mechanical items pertaining to the food industry and a hygienic certificate.

I have used Xado before on my gearbox and engine and it has saved me so much money, less vibration, noise, better acceleration , absolutely no breakdowns, finally ,cleaner emissions. At my last N.C.T. the mechanics were hitting the emissions machine with hammer, they thought the emissions machine was just broken.

My old Mazda automatic was dying and drinking petrol so I decided to give Xado a go because at my regular garage it never really seemed any different after service. I got a full Xado service and treatment and they changed the automatic transmission fluid. I was shocked the difference was dramatic, the engine and automatic transmission are running silky smooth and it feels like a different car. The fuel consumption is at least 10% better, more on the motorway! So I've decided not to change the car just yet. Its well worth giving Xado a go.
