Calico Coatings, a Denver, NC-based provider of high-performance coatings, has formed a new joint venture with HEF Group, a French developer of surface engineering solutions. The partnership gives Calico Coatings access to resources for developing advanced and customized coating solutions for its customers, according to the company. HEF Group, with 90 locations in 21 countries, specializes in tribology,
Tech Line Thermal Management Coatings help manage the flow of heat for a variety of uses.
This thermal barrier requires oven curing at 300°F for 1 hour and is for professional applications.
Originally developed for top fuel drag racing engines, this may be used on any combustion chamber surface in any type of engine.
When it comes to keeping your engine happy and operating well, engine bearings are a component that play a big role in that regard. They’re small and relatively inexpensive when compared to other engine parts, but if an engine bearing doesn’t do its job, the consequences can be many.
In today’s performance driven, engine building world, everyone wants to squeeze out another few horsepower, deliver more torque, create less friction, wear and heat, and ultimately, make the engine last longer. How do you all of that you ask? Parts coatings.
MAHLE Motorsport now offers a proprietary thermal barrier coating application for any PowerPak performance forged piston – gas or diesel. This ceramic-based thermal application greatly reduces heat transfer for improved performance.
How thermal coatings can benefit multiple engine areas M ilitary coatings are exponentially better than commercial coatings. At my shop, Hekimian Racing Engines in Watertown, MA, we use what are known as Mil-Coats, proprietary coating combinations for engine components. These are not available through your commercial channels. Hekimian Racing Engines’ coatings are proprietary, and Mil-Coat
Coatings have been developed to improve performance, durability and reliability. Though once the exclusive trade secret of race engine parts suppliers and engine builders, today parts coatings are available for many different applications – and can even be applied in your own shop.
Building a high performance engine is always an adventure. You never know how much horsepower and torque an engine will make until it’s on the dyno. And you never know how well the engine will hold up until it is put to the test on the strip, race track, street or water. The bearings that
This webinar will be presented by United Engine and Machine, manufacturer of Silvolite, KB Hypereutectic and ICON Forged pistons. Dave White, Scott Sulprizio and Ken Carter will catch you up on all the latest innovations and the benefits of coated pistons.
Bill McKnight will present an all new webinar on OEM ring production designs and new coatings that have been developed and the processes used to apply them to the steel compression rings to reduce wear and resist heat. He’ll also cover materials in aftermarket replacement sets for late-model engines.
