RRC are not common soluble additives in oils, but are lubricants in the classical sense.
The objects of RRC impact are friction surfaces, not lubricants!

For the executive director of «New technologies in industry» Ltd scientific and production enterprise Svinarchuk S. I.
Dear Sergey Ivanovich,
Upon your request, I inform you that the impact of repair-restoration additions «РВС», TS 0257-001 -74760882-2004 on the change in the properties of mineral oils and plastic grease was checked in 2004-2005 during the development of lubricants Rovel RVS L. As a result of tests, it was established that the introduction of RRC into lubricants (in concentrations recommended by the manufacturer of RRC CJSC NPC «Ruspromremont», St. Petersburg) does not cause a change in the physical and chemical parameters of lubricant oils and plastic grease. At the same time, tribological characteristics of lubricants are improved: critical load and welding load are increased.
The introduction of the PBC geomodifier at a concentration of 1 ml of 5% gel 1 l oils I-50A and KS-19 did not affect the characteristics of these oils.
Differences between RRC and additives are as follows:
– RRC act only on friction surfaces in places of their contacts;
– RRC improve the working conditions of friction pairs made of ferrous and non-ferrous metals, their alloys and composite materials;
– after the use of the RRC when replacing lubricants in accordance with the maintenance procedure, the mandatory re-introduction of the RRC is not required.
