Hy-per Lube Zinc Replacement Additive Does What Today’s Oils Can’t

Our legendary zinc replacement additive provides wear protection under extreme pressures
When it comes to delivering the required extreme pressure wear protection for motorsport and classic cars, today’s standard motor oils fall short. But there’s a reliable and affordable oil additive that can help.
Hy-per Lube Zinc Replacement Additive (p/n HPZ212) is designed specifically for vehicles and industrial engines in high-stress and demanding conditions and environments. It offers a simple and efficient way to keep cams, lifters and rocker arms safe and eliminate significant wear.
When motor oil manufacturers began reducing levels of ZDDP (Zinc Dialkyl Dithiophosphate) in their products to protect catalytic converters from premature damage, the change left owners of many types of older or high-performance vehicles built with flat tappet camshaft engines without the necessary wear protection. It’s a need that has only been growing with time, as modern oils continue to leave this hole unfilled.
The lack of the appropriate levels of ZDDP can result in camshaft wear, piston scuffing and damage to lifters and the valvetrain. This damage could mean reduced oil pressure, compression loss, lower fuel economy, leaks, smoking, noise, lost power and shorter engine life.
“When engine oils had more ZDDP, they were able to continually replenish the sacrificial coating on metal parts,” says Clay Parks, vice president of development for Hy-per Lube. “Today’s oils need help protecting those metal parts to limit excessive wear and parts failure. Our Zinc Replacement Additive delivers this protection better than high-content zinc motor oils.”
Hy-per Lube Zinc Replacement Additive contains an exclusive polymer ester formula, which when added to any motor oil, bonds to the metal surfaces to allow the parts to move more smoothly. These additives allow a tremendous amount of pressure to be applied to metal-on-metal surfaces without the additives losing their original properties or causing extreme wear to the cams, lifters and rocker arms.
Our zinc (ZDDP) replacement formula is compatible with all motor oils, including synthetic, and can be used in any vehicle year, make or model. The additive does not contain heavy metals, reduces cold-start wear after long periods of disuse and is safe to use with all engines, even those with catalytic converters. Gasoline-powered vehicles manufactured before 1996 and diesel-powered vehicles made before 2004 especially benefit.
