Performance White™ – Sample



Sample for plasma-sprayed ceramic thermal barrier coating

Performance White™ is only available from Zircotec, and is applied via our world class plasma-spray robotic systems.

Performance White™ delivers the ultimate in thermal barrier performance and can be utilised across a broad reach of industries, offering the following key benefits:

A robust fit-and-forget coating

  • It is in effect “welded” to the substrate using our proprietary metal bond system; eliminating the need for exhaust wrap, protecting components against corrosion, and continuing to perform and look good

Ultra high level of thermal performance

  • Suitable for applications of up to 1,400oC (2,550oF)

Significantly lower exhaust temperatures

  • Surface temperatures reduce by ~33%

Reduced heat loss from the exhaust

  • Resulting in lower engine bay temperatures

Highly efficient yet lightweight

  • Only 0.3mm (0.012″) thick with minimal weight gain

Protection for vulnerable components located close to the exhaust

  • Avoiding heat damage, increasing component life, and allowing closer packaging of equipment inside the engine bay.

Improved engine performance and reliability

  • Lower air intake temperatures lead to increased engine power. Keeping the heat inside the exhaust gases improves the flow rate, which in turn can improve cylinder scavenging, and allowing turbochargers to spool up more quickly.

Reduced heat soak through footwells, bulkheads, etc.

  • So drivers are potentially cooler, more comfortable, and more able to concentrate.

Rapid cooling of the exhaust when the engine is turned off

  • The surface temperature of the coating drops quickly when the engine is off, making pit stops faster, easier and safer.
