If you are in need of coating expertise for a project or looking for a free quote to challenge your current suppliers get in. Coating the piston reduces friction and wear reduces part operating temperature can increase horse power and torque reduce or eliminate detonation allow higher compression ratios to be utilized and allow tighter piston to wall clear ances for a better ring seal.
Swain s tbc has come a long way since it started the internal engine coating revolution back in the 1970 s.

Metallic ceramic polished to a high lustre with a stainless chrome appearance that will not rust. Cic high performance ceramics piston coatings. It s designed for high boost high temperature engine like sport compacts making 1 500 horsepower out of two liters.
A moly skirt coating on pistons is not specifically designed to reduce heat but because it reduces friction heat is potentially reduced as a direct by product. The moly coating s true benefit is reduction of friction which prolongs part life and reduces operating friction and it naturally frees available horsepower. The piston is one of the very first parts that should be considered for coating.
The best chemical and corrosion protection of any exhaust coating with excellent thermal barrier characteristics providing a reduction in radiated heat with reduced under hood temperatures.
