Parts coated with ceramic coatings

Performance Colours™

Zircotec’s Performance Colours™ – high-performance thermal barrier coating with 14 colour finishes to choose from.

The Performance Colours™ range is the Zircotec proprietary range of high temperature quality finishes for our ThermoHold® based ceramic coating, suitable for exhaust coating applications as well as a range of other applications.

It provides similar levels of performance to our Performance White™ coating, with a surface finish that is robust, easily maintained and aesthetically pleasing.

The Benefits

A robust fit-and-forget coating

Performance Colours™ are in effect “welded” to the substrate using our proprietary metal bond system; eliminating the need for exhaust wrap; protecting against corrosion; and so continuing to perform and look good.

Choice of colours

With a surface finish and texture that is robust, sealed and easily maintained.

Ultra high level of thermal performance

Performance Colours™ ceramic coatings are suitable for applications of up to 900oC (1,650oF).

Significantly lower exhaust temperatures

Temperatures on the surface of the exhaust reduce by a massive ~33% with Performance Colours™

Reduced heat transfer, so much lower engine bay temperatures

Reductions of >50oC are possible with Performance Colours™. For further details download our Case Study

Highly efficient yet lightweight

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

Protection for vulnerable components close to the exhaust.

Improved engine performance & reliability

Lower air intake temperatures lead to increased engine power, whilst keeping the heat inside the exhaust gas allows the gases to flow more easily increasing cylinder scavenging, allowing turbochargers to spool up more quickly and helping to prevent fuel evaporation in older cars).

Reduced heat soak through footwells, bulkheads, etc.

Rapid cooling of the exhaust when the engine is turned off

The surface temperature of our exhaust Performance Colours™ coating drops quickly when the engine is off, making pit stops faster, easier and safer.
