We also offer a more durable coating for engines using nitrous. C lube is a thermally cured dry film lubricant designed to provide high pressure lubrication to surfaces subject to sliding rotating or oscillating motion such as piston skirts and gears.
When an uncoated piston is exposed to the extreme heat of combustion that heat can anneal or soften the crown.
Ceramic coatings for pistons. Piston coatings exhaust coatings ceramic coatings carbide coatings metal coatings polymer coatings ptfe coatings hard anodize hardcoat and thin hard coatings are some of the coatings that we apply. The following coatings can only be applied to new ross custom pistons at the time they are manufactured. The product is formulated to withstand temperatures up to 870 celsius and can reduce skin temps on pipes up to 35.
Adding a coating to your pistons will extend our normal manufacturing time by about 4 5 working days. This ceramic based thermal barrier application greatly reduces heat transfer for improved performance and adds a layer of insulation to the piston crown to protect against thermal shock. The piston is one of the very first parts that should be considered for coating.
Black ceramic coating is a semi gloss black ceramic metallic coating applied at maldon shot blasting ceramic coatings are perfect for motorcycle exhaust pipes turbo exhaust and headers or high performance racing headers. Coating the piston reduces friction and wear reduces part operating temperature can increase horse power and torque reduce or eliminate detonation allow higher compression ratios to be utilized and allow tighter piston to wall clear ances for a better ring seal. C lube dry film ceramic lubricant combines the durability of a ceramic resin with the lubricity of a ceramic lubricant.
Ceramic coating when applied to the tops of pistons acts as a reflector of heat minimizing its absorption into the piston diblasi explains. Mahle ceramic based piston coatings mahle motorsport now offers a proprietary thermal barrier coating application for any powerpak performance forged piston gas or diesel available through kill devil diesel. The skirts with the exclusion of the ring lands are coated with a ceramic dry film lubricant to guard against galling and eliminate friction.
Tbc coated pistons run cooler and retain much more of their tensile strength. Here s a look at the coatings available on wiseco pistons. Tbc protects against high temperature oxidation eliminates hot spots and encourages proper flame travel.
Ceramic coatings help reduce that effect. All other coatings can be applied to our shelf stock pistons. Epc100 epc100l epc100rg epc102 epc103 epc103l.
A dry film lubricant applied to the piston skirt armorglide helps reduce friction to not only improve performance but also quiet down the piston in the cylinder bore. The coating is also designed to aid in the more even transfer of heat reducing hot spots. In addition to our high performance division we also have an extensive industrial division offering a variety of engineered coatings.
Cic high performance ceramics piston coatings. Pistons we apply a ceramic barrier to the tops of the pistons to eliminate hot spots and to cause a faster and hotter burn. The ceramic also spreads the heat evenly over the entire coated surface reducing detonation pre ignition and allowing the use of lower octane fuel.
