LSI Chemical NanoClear504 Oil Additive

This oil additive allows for higher load carrying capacity, higher adsorbability, and an increased film strength for better wear resistance.

LSI Chemical introduces NanoClear504, a new ready-to-use oil additive engineered for higher viscosity mineral, semi-synthetic or synthetic oils available to upgrade lubricating oils and greases. NanoClear504 is formulated with three patented chemicals: clear nano carbon particles, a Group V Ester and Group IV PAO to allow for higher thermal conductivity, wear resistance, load carrying capacity and absorption ability.

NanoClear504 is a synthetic additive for higher viscosity lubricants and increases the anti-wear and anti-friction properties, as well as improve shear and oxidation stability. NanoClear504 is engineered with true nano carbon particles, which allows for higher load carrying capacity, higher adsorbability, and an increased film strength for better wear resistance.

Developed with proprietary nano-carbon technology, the nano particles form chain-like links that increase the molecular structure of the oil to form a thicker tribolayer. The submicron particle size and polarity allow particles to fill in asperities on machined surfaces for greatly reduced wear, shear and oxidation stability. The result is increased horsepower and fuel economy and long-lasting engine and component protection. 

The synthetic, colorless nano carbon lubricant increased horsepower and fuel economy by 1-5% in third party laboratory tests. A Shell Rotella baseline oil treated with NanoClear504 demonstrated a reduction in counterface wear by 43% compared to the baseline oil.

Todd Cawley, LSI Chemical president, says, “NanoClear504 is very similar to our prior introduced product NanoClear304, except it has a thicker viscosity making it ideal for industrial or agricultural grease product development. Our patented process for carbon nano technology cannot be duplicated by any other refinery additive company and allows for higher load carry capacity, higher absorbability, and increased film strength. Also, there are no precipitation issues that are often the case with nano particles.”


NanoClear504 is compatible with mineral, semi-synthetic and synthetic oils. May be used as part of an additive package or as an add-on to market-ready products.

  • Contains a synthetic, colorless nano-carbon lubricant
  • Improves shear stability, oxidation stability, film strength
  • Reduces wear & friction
  • Reduces operating temperatures
  • Reduces noise & vibration

When you’re installing new cam bearings in an LS engine block, the first four (from back to front of the engine) are usually no problem. That’s because the block helps keep the cam bearing installation tool centered in the bearing bores. But when it comes to the front cam bearing, there is nothing to keep the installation tool centered in the bore. That means the chances of that bearing going in cockeyed are pretty high.
