see ... lead and tin form a eutectic alloy ... that melts at a far lower temperature than either pure lead or pure tin .... we use this alloy as solder...

these opti-2 guys are saying that they have this stuff which is in the oil ... and when the metallic peaks in the engine clash ... when the hydrostatic separation fails ... this stuff combines with the metal peaks that are rubbing - and hotter because of the rubbing ... and that this stuff forms a eutectic mixture with the rubbing metal....thus allowing the surface to become smoother by virtue of redistribution of the metal surfaces

the unanswered question goes ...<what if the surface has already been modified by another oil that uses metallic salt formation via friction modifiers or high pressure additives>

I don't know the answer
