We offer a range of thermal barrier and heat resistant coatings that are engineered to meet OEM requirements for a broad range of vehicle exhaust system components including:

  • Exhaust system manifolds & headers
  • Turbochargers
  • Catalyst & particulate filter housings
  • Interconnecting pipework
  • Hangers; brackets & clips

We also offer a range of high performance heat shield materials under the ZircoFlex® brand.

Thermal Barrier Coatings  Our high performance plasma sprayed thermal barrier coatings reduce heat transfer even under the most extreme conditions, allowing vehicle designers and engineers to manage heat. This can lead to improved vehicle performance, fuel economy, emission control, improved cold-start conditions, reduced engine compartment temperatures, and reduced component surface temperatures. These coatings are typically just 0.3mm thick.

High temperature paint finishes – Our range of heat resistant paints can be used to improve the aesthetics on and around a vehicle exhaust system and its components. With a wide range of colours and finishes available, we have coatings that are capable of operating at temperatures in excess of 1,000°C.

Heat shield materials – Our ZircoFlex®  high performance heat shield materials can be used to protect vulnerable components close to the exhaust and help reduce heat soak.

Testing – Zircotec coatings are in use on an increasing number of OEM applications and have been tested to industry standards. This has included on-road testing, extended salt water and humidity corrosion testing, thermal shock testing, thermal cycling, thermal and UV stability, chemical exposure, stone-chip and adherence testing.
