This oil has some of the very same ingredients in the additive package the coatings have.
Tech Line is the supplier of the ceramic additives but did not patent or develop the oil..
As the oil moves through the motor it is applying ceramic's to moving parts, they embed into all parts.. Not to the extent that coating the parts does but gives the same basic property's.. The ceramic will get to places I can't with spray on coatings, ie, lifter's, rings, turbo's, etc....
Their is no different break in needed, fresh motors work best using this from day one..
