Default Microlon engine treatment?



hey guys my dad just handed me an engine treatment kit from a company called Microlon. My dad put this stuff when he got his Lexus a few years ago and the car has been running for 450k miles and still strong. Just wondering if anybody has used any Microlon products before or if they have any info on it being harmful. Their the same guys that make GunJuice
search yielded nothing but google showed

This stuff is just another name for Slick 50... it's made by the same company. I wouldn't waste your time with it.

(edit) Not actually the same company... but just another PTFE additive, which has been proven to have no benefit, and may actually cause MORE engine wear:
