Zircotec's new fit-and-forget ceramic coating offers surface temperature reductions of 125°C (225°F) for diesel engine application, claims the company. The ceramic formulation combined with changes to the manufacturing process have enabled Zircotec to reduce the costs of its new Performance Diesel product by 50%. It provides an option for truck and bus manufacturers challenged by the higher temperatures experienced with new Euro VI emissions regulations and testing methods scheduled for late-2013 introduction. The coating can be applied using plasma spraying to exhausts and turbochargers as well as to plastic heat shields to effectively manage heat, protect other components, and help emissions controls systems work at their optimum.
