Thermal barrier coating of exhaust components
Metallisation customer, Woof Thermal Management Technology, has applied well proven plasma ceramic coatings technology to high performance automotive applications, to provide highly effective thermal barriers in extreme conditions.
Metallisation Ceramic Coatings
Durable Ceramic Coatings
The durable plasma ceramic coating provides a highly effective thermal barrier on exhausts, turbo’s and brake parts and enables high performance vehicles to run at cooler temperatures. The plasma ceramic coatings work by preventing heat transfer, which means an increase in power and reduced heat input to other components. A typical drop of 25ºC in under bonnet temperature will result in decreased intake temperature, which can give up to a 5% increase in power and significantly increases ancillary reliability.
The Woof plasma ceramic coatings can reduce surface temperatures by up to 160ºC and can withstand temperatures of up to 1400ºC. This compares with typical standard ceramic containing paint, which may only reduce surface temperatures by up to 9%.
The Woof premium performance plasma ceramic coating contains magnesia / zirconia and offers the best thermal barrier coating. The coating is creamy white in colour, with a slightly rough surface texture.
