Cerma offers a complete line of oils and fluids for engines, transmissions, power steering, rear axles, and hydraulics.

Cerma Motor Oils are the next generation of professional engine oils, using SiC (Run Clean) technology to directly address carbon (dirt) formation, oxidation and contamination that regularly occur within standard and synthetic engine oils. Cerma Motor Oils will save you money and are offered in both a 15,000 blend and a 30,000 blend (CERMAX).

No need for any fancy filters or disclaimers -- our oils are SiC! Cerma Motor Oils are the future of lubrication for years to come. Beyond synthetic protection at affordable prices.

How does the world's only self-cleaning motor oil work? Cerma's proprietary RUN CLEAN technology forces the carbon to attract to itself and into the oil flow. Once large enough, these deposits are filtered out through the engines normal filter system -- and the "cleaning" will continue for the life of the oil!
As the next generation of professional engine oils, Cerma Motor Oils will save you money and are offered in both a 15,000 blend and a 30,000 blend (CERMAX).

MYTH 1: You should change your oil every 3000 to 5000 miles...

Actually, Motor Oil does not go bad. Why do you change motor oil? Because it becomes contaminated with carbon and dirt.

Cerma Motor Oils are formulated to minimize the contamination that occurs within your engine. Cerma's Run Clean Technology breaks down the carbon so that the oil filter will capture virtually all damaging materials for up to 15,000 (Cerma) and 30,000 miles (CEMAX).

MYTH 2: When engine oil turns dark, it's dirty and should be changed...

Wrong. In fact, just the opposite is true -- the oil is working just the way it's supposed to, dispersing the tiny particles that can result in engine sludge and holding them in suspension in the oil itself so that they can't build up along the engine walls. That's why the oil appears darker.

Specifically with Cerma Motor Oils, this in no way impedes the oil from performing its normal functions of lubricating and protecting the metal surfaces inside the engine. In fact the Cerma process will move these particles from the oil flow into the filter. Use the oil change interval recommended by your vehicle's manufacturer to decide when to change the filter, not the color of the oil on the stick.

MYTH 3: The "W" in 10W-30 oil stands for "weight"...

When you buy engine oil, it's important to know the oil's viscosity, a property that corresponds roughly to its thickness. The less viscous the oil, the more smoothly it moves through your engine and lubricates the moving parts. The best oil for a particular engine is an oil whose a viscosity is neither so high (thick) that it will barely flow or so low (thin) that it will slip through your engine like water. Unfortunately, oil changes its viscosity with temperature and the multi-grade rating gives you both the hot and cold viscosities. For 10W-30 oil, the 30 is the viscosity rating for warm oil, and the 10W is the viscosity rating for cold oil, according to a standardized rating system developed by the SAE for winter oil use. And that's what the "W" stands for: "winter".

Cerma Motor Oils are offered in various multi-grade options to fit all needs. In addition, using Cerma Engine Treatments will allow vehicles to run at the lower end of the manufacturer's suggested weights, offer the same protection, and benefit from fuel economy increases.

MYTH 4: Engine oil additives will improve your engine's performance...

This is true -- except that "additives" have already been added before you buy the oil. This is what is called the "additive pack" of a motor oil. Motor oils will come with additives that improve their viscosity index -- the range of temperatures under which it flows properly through the engine -- and that give it properties that keep your engine free of sludge. Most will also include rust retardants to prevent corrosion and chemicals to protect metallic surfaces. With all these additives already in the oil, there is no reason to put additional additives in the engine.

This is also true for Cerma Motor Oils. Cerma's proprietary SiC technology is incorporated into all of our oils, creating the world's only self-cleaning system that forces carbon and other dirty components into the oil flow and out into the filter.

However, what is not true, is that additives are just that, chemicals that mix with the oil. Cerma Engine Treatments are Catalysts and therefore do not mix with the oil, thus providing additional benefits as a metal treatment, forming a Silicon Carbide matrix along the surface of entire engine and not allowing carbon and lacquer to build up along the engine walls.

MYTH 5: Synthetic engine oils can cause oil leaks...

Back in the 1970s, when synthetic engine oils (those based not on petroleum but on chemical base stocks such as polyalphaolefins) first became popular, they didn't always work well with the seals and gaskets in a vehicle's engine. They could cause the seals to shrink in ways that petroleum-based oils did not, resulting in oil leaks. Since then, synthetic oils have been reformulated so that seal shrinkage does not occur.

In fact, Cerma Motor Oils will create additional protection inside the engine that other synthetic oils do not, and the seals will work at peak efficiency.
As of October 1, 2010, three new passenger car motor oil categories were established. ILSAC GF-5 supersedes ILSAC GF-4, and API SM is replaced by two categories, API SN and API SN Resource Conserving. API SM is very similar to ILSAC GF-4, and API SN is very similar to ILSAC GF-5. Passenger car/light truck engine lubrication requirements continue to focus on three core areas: Improved fuel economy & fuel economy retention, improved emission system compatibility, and improved engine oil life or robustness.

Cerma Industries is committed to providing our customers with the highest quality products. Cerma STM-3 Motor Oils were developed with maximum performance technology and exceed the latest car manufacturers’ GF‐5 performance standards. The diagram below illustrates how Cerma STM-3 provides better emission compatibility, improved wear & oxidation control, and better cleanliness & sludge protection than the required ILSAC GF‐5 specification.

1. Federally mandated requirements in diesel engines requiring additional emission and fuel economy improvements. Engines will run at higher temperatures, run more on biodiesel, and have more air circulating within the engine.
2. New oil specifications are being designed to meet these new engine standards. The new specifications include:
a) Lower viscosity oil with same engine protection -- to increases fuel economy
b) Higher engine temperature protection
c) Backwards compatibility for older engines
d) Oxidation and aeration protection

The oil industry has already decided that in order to meet all these requirements, the specifications will be based on two different oil types: Type I for new engines and lower viscosity to increase fuel economy and Type II to be compatible with older engines (higher viscosity), performing to the new standards.

Cerma Motor Oil already meets all the new standards in engine protection, oxidation, temperature and biodiesel. In addition, Cerma tackles the important issue with older engines - restoring performance so that the lower viscosity oil with increased fuel economy properties will protect and function!

Fuel EconomyOne last comment on the fuel economy of using lower viscosity oils. Most of the research below seems to point to testing done when moving from 40 weight to 30 weight, or 30 weight to 20 weight oil. These tests conclude that a real savings does exist:

• • Moving from 40 to 30 - 2% to 5%
• • Moving from 30 to 20 - 4% to 8%

This would suggest that the fuel economy savings increases exponentially as you move down the viscosity scale. This is confirmed by our internal testing where we have seen a 15% to 20% savings moving from a 30W to a 10W, and a 25% to 35% savings moving from a 30W to a 5W.
Cerma STM-3 lubrication systems greatly reduces operating and maintenance costs, carbon footprint, and fuel costs for heavy-duty equipment and semi-trucks.

Cerma Motor Oils are self-cleaning, constantly removing sludge and abrasive carbons from the system. Cerma Motor Oils treat the metal, dramatically reducing engine wear. There are other oils, oil filters and add-ons that will take you out to 30K, 40K or 50K miles without an oil change. Just add enough chemicals to the oil, or clean the oil with an expensive filter, and some motor oils can last for an extended drain interval.

The Cerma difference is that we are not just making a motor oil last long... we are changing the entire motor oil component of the vehicle to a complete SELF-CLEANING ANTI-WEAR LUBRICATION SYSTEM. During the ENTIRE oil change interval, Cerma Motor Oils keep the system clean, and continue to prevent wear inside the engine.

Real Word Examples:

2013 Kubota
At third oil change (615 hours), motor oil was changed to out to CERMAX 15w40 Diesel Motor Oil. Tractor ran for an additional 275 hours at which time a Cerma oil sample was sent in for testing.

Oil Analysis Report Summary:
• Contamination - There is no indication of any contamination in the component.
• Oil Condition - The BN result indicates that there is suitable alkalinity remaining in the oil.
• Wear - All component wear rates are normal.
(Note: 50 hours equates to about 6000 miles in this type of equipment.)
Wear rates from the WearCheck MOB II Oil Analysis report were not just normal, they were extraordinary. NO wear rates on Nickel, Chromium, Titanium, or Lead, and minuscule wear rates on Iron, Copper, Aluminum, and Tin.
The "Soot %", a major of contamination in a diesel engine, was at 0! Many engine manufacturers allow up to 3 or higher soot before changing the oil. By not allowing the fuel soot to go over 3, the oil does not get dirty and the engine lives longer, which is the primary goal of any owner-operator. A reading of 0% Soot -- extraordinary performance.
In addition to these outstanding improvements in engine wear, the user gained a dramatic increase in fuel economy with a reported savings of over 23% during his last season.

In summary, even after 275 hours of operation (which equates to 30,000 miles plus), nothing is wearing and the Cerma Motor Oil continues protecting the engine at maximum levels.

B) 2001 Cummings Freightliner FLD Diesel Engine

2001 Cummings
Purchased vehicle with 1,010,000 miles on it with a claim of a rebuild at 750,000 miles. Added Cerma STM-3 Diesel Engine Treatment at 1,020,000 miles. Changed oil to CERMAX 15w40 Diesel Motor Oil at 1,047,000 miles. Cerma oil test at 1,059,000 miles (12,000 miles on CERMAX Motor Oil).

Oil Analysis Report Summary:
• Contamination - Elemental level of silicon (Si) above normal indicating ingress of seal material. The amount and size of particulates present in the system is acceptable.
• Oil Condition - The BN result indicates that there is suitable alkalinity remaining in the oil. The condition of the oil is suitable for further service.
• Wear - All component wear rates are normal.

Again, wear rates from the WearCheck MOB II Oil Analysis report were not just normal, they were extraordinary. So even after 12,000 miles of running on Cerma Motor Oil, nothing is wearing, and the motor oil is performing its function of protecting the engine at maximum levels. A note on the levels of silicon: Cerma Motor Oils and treatments contain the active STM-3 ingredient, and STM-3 does contain SI in its component. Regardless of the reason, levels are acceptable and NORMAL for the engine and oil.

2011 Ford Fusion
Purchased vehicle with 33,000 miles Added Cerma STM-3 Treatment at 35,000 miles. Changed oil to CERMAX 5w30 Motor Oil at 37,500 miles. Oil test at 57,500 miles (20,000 miles on CERMAX Motor Oil with filter change every 5,000 miles).

Oil Analysis Report Summary:
• Contamination - Elemental level of silicon (Si) above normal indicating ingress of seal material. The amount and size of particulates present in the system is acceptable.
• Oil Condition - The AN level is acceptable for this fluid. The condition of the oil is suitable for further service.
• Wear - All component wear rates are normal.

Wear rates from the WearCheck MOB II Oil Analysis report were not just normal, they were extraordinary. After 20,000 miles of running on Cerma Motor Oil, nothing is wearing, and the motor oil is performing its function of protecting the engine at maximum levels. Report does show that the TBN is low, which would suggest that at the next service oil test (another 10,000 miles for a total of 30,000 miles on Cerma Motor Oil), oil should be change

User is also reporting a 25% increase in fuel economy under highway driving at 75 miles per hour.

A note on the levels of silicon: Cerma Motor Oils and treatments contain the active STM-3 ingredient, and STM-3 does contain SI in its component. Regardless of the reason, levels are acceptable and normal for the engine and oil.
The numbers are simple. Cerma STM-3 will enhance the performance of the engine, the vehicle will run more efficiently, and the vehicle will last longer with less maintenance costs. Savings with Cerma STM-3 comes from three main areas:

1. Fuel Savings
2. Oil Savings
3. Maintenance Savings

Combined, Cerma STM-3 can save up to 40% annually across the board. A light running diesel semi-truck at only 3% improvement will save $1,650 in fuel costs in the first year alone. Over a 5 year period, that is over $8,250 in savings. An auto that drives 12,000 miles per year can save over $250 in the first year. Over a 5 year period, that is over $1,250 in savings! And remember, Cerma STM-3 is a one-time treatment -- so the savings will continue into year 5 and beyond...

Larger engines and vehicles, and businesses with multiple vehicles will realize far greater savings.
