Where Innovation Lives™

Lubrication Specialties, Inc. (LSI) is Where Innovation Lives™. LSI is an industry leader in product innovation and provides customers with extreme duty, high performance, custom-made products.


LSI products are known for being innovative, forward thinking and for being the highest quality products available. This is possible due to the world-class Research & Development Team at LSI, led by LSI founder Chris Gabrelcik and Vice President of Research & Development, Kevin Adams. If you need a product tested, modified or improved, LSI has all the tools necessary to accomplish what you need.


LSI specializes in hard-to-handle lubrication areas. LSI has resolved problems for some of the largest companies in North America, including: Nucor Steel, American Showa, Midwest Industries, X-Tec, among others. LSI’s ultimate goal is to figure out what the problem or inefficiency is, and to fix it using the latest lubrication, additives or equipment available. The company’s flagship product, Hot Shot’s Secret Stiction Eliminator, was developed for International Truck and Engine to resolve the issue with injectors on the Ford Power Stroke 6.0-liter engine.

LSI is in a unique position where helping other companies achieve their goals is now easier than ever with expanded production capacity, a robust research and development team, quick delivery times and state-of-the-art testing and development.

Chris Gabrelcik, CEO is one of the select few in the entire world that holds both titles of Certified Lubrication Specialist (CLS) and Oil Management Analyst (OMA). He is also a member of the Society of Tribologists and Lubrication Engineers (STLE), and Association of Diesel Specialists (ADS). He began Lubrication Specialties, Inc. in 1997. Today, LSI continues to grow rapidly due to the dedication of offering the highest quality products available.

Todd Cawley with over 25 years of global experience in the lubricants and nanotechnology industry says “Our expertise in bringing nanotechnology to lubricants around the world is unique with formulations that bring all the friction reduction, wear resistance, thermal conductivity, and increased horsepower of nano without the suspension and color issues of other nano additives.”

Oil Additives


A lubricity enhancing oil additive that increases the lubricating & wear reduction properties of the host oil. The product contains three proprietary synthetic lubricants that have unique lubricating properties even compared to PAO or mPAO synthetics of the same viscosity. The anti-wear component of the formula is an exclusive carbon nano lubricant that fills in microscopic irregularities on the machined surface. The synergy of these components extend the base oil performance in shear stability, oxidation stability, film strength & especially friction reduction. It also increases the oil’s film strength for added protection and efficiency.


An 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.


An oil treatment engineered to remove stiction, the sludge, and varnish created from burnt oil, while also lubricating. This oil and diesel stiction remover is proven to reduce the wear taking place inside your engine by up to 62% more than engine oil alone, verified by ASTM G-133 third-party testing. NanoRestore736 can reduce wear up to 62% more than engine oil alone by removing stiction and using a nano lubricant.


An anti-wear and friction reducing additive that can be added to many host oils.

Fuel Additives


A concentrated diesel fuel treatment cold filter plugging point (CFPP) protection additive.


A concentrated 6-in-1 fuel treatment with a 7 point boost in cetane. Improves diesel fuel’s lubricity to improve protection while also stabilizing the fuel. It also disperses moisture and protects against rust and corrosion. This additive is completely ash-less.


Our winter version of TotalArmor607 with anti-gel cold weather properties added.


A fully formulated, concentrated cleaner that removes all internal diesel injector deposits (IDIDs) including waxy and polymeric deposits. In addition, contains a top tier level of cetane booster, lubricity additive and fuel stabilizer to provide maximum performance while cleaning the fuel system.
