Take them to the local recycling depot and use the bottles for something useful.

Snake oil. Dispose of properly. Its PFTE (Teflon). Does not belong in an engine (and thats according to Dupont the manufacturer).

Use high quality synthetic oil and forget the snake oil.



I very rarely agree with Donald however he 100% correct on this one.

Not all slick 50s have teflon IIRC.

Nevertheless, probably not much use except for a novelty.

According to Johnny [a well respected former member] when Sopus bought the Slick 50 name they changed the formula and the product wasn't bad. They took the Teflon out of it when they reformulated it.

I'd gift them out to those you don't care for, but if you don't want to be that bad, perhaps soak into some firewood saved for future SOS signaling.
Use a good API proper grade oil should be all that is needed.

SOPUS should have put Slick 50 out of its misery. What would one intend to accomplish by mixing the stuff with PYB or QSGB or FS? Or, if I had a garbage oil, how about buying a better oil instead of the additive?

It's a bit disingenuous in my view for an oil company that markets oils that they insist upon using on their own without additives, to sell an additive all their own.

Really? Isn't that interesting. I wonder what it became and what it consisted of

The original material was a Teflon suspension. As I recollect the particle size was such that it would clog good filters. And I don't believe it bonded very well. But to compensate for that it was quite expensive.

Nano particle Moly or Tungsten Disulphide would be a better choice.

The nano part is important.

I have no idea, but John wrote about it, and IIRC he said it wasn't a bad product, and no longer contained Teflon. Someone who has the time could probably pull up the thread, with a ton of luck! LOL

Tri-flow is formulated with teflon particles in suspension. Anywhere Tri-flow is suitable should be okay to use Slick-50... e.g., door locks, bicycles.

It should be a good lube for anything that doesn't have a filter.

use it according to directions; i.e. please dilute in regular oil.

i'm a skeptic but have to admit that when i didn't know better i used it in a taurus ford 3.0 vulcan engine. The thing lasted almost forever and ran well; sold to a friend; car eventually broke an axle at very high mileage but engine was great.

i'd never buy a bottle again unless it was at a price like you scored it at. teflon turns into toxic pollutants at higher temps, such as those that can be seen in engines.

Excuse me..

You Sir are incorrect and brainwashed by the Oil Industry which has an agenda to keep you in the dark with the technological advancements that have been developed with PTFE (and they are doing VERY well).

Catch up with the truth and at some point in time find the more current report from DuPont and their stand on the use of PTFE in an internal combustion engine. Don't think for a moment DuPont does not sell all the PTFE micro balloons materials they can produce (which now is available in several different grades BTW.)
Order a 50 Lb can and see how long and how much this family of chemicals cost..

Today these products have reached a position that has no connection with the material you mentioned.
Gun Oil, Hydraulic systems, HVAC, compressors and pumps, Turbine, Transmissions of all type, Electric motors, Drill Mud, the list is endless.

Do you recognize the Polymer/Ceramics Coatings Industry as being a joke too (give me a brake.)?

Next thing, you will be telling people that cryogenic processing is a laugh or that the slickest surface in the world is not a Teflon to Teflon surface ... wake up.. HELLO, chances are your eggs are cooked on the stuff!

I have been affiliated with this industry for close to 30 years and I'm tired of you and others failure to get your heads out of the mud.

It would be a BIG positive to research your opinions before you dump on something you have NO knowledge of past a 20+ year old report from a company that now generates a great deal of profit from PTFE.

Wake up guys and see the light. We all have the option to get in the game or let it pass us by.
I'd bet that if you were in the performance industry you would not be (so) short sighted.
I'm wonder who in the oil industry will come out with a PTFE additive package in their over the counter offerings.

I remember, not so many years ago that synthetic oils were dumped on continuously, and now??
