Motorcycle exhaust coating

We supply a range of exhaust coatings that are engineered to meet Motorcycle OEM requirements. These coatings offer:

  • A range of attractive finishes – Numerous colour options and surface finishes are available to meet specific OEM styling requirements.
  • Robust long lasting finish – Specifically formulated to cope with the extreme vibration and stress loading of a high-performance motorcycle exhaust. Our coatings protect against corrosion, are highly resistant to stone chipping, and are easy to maintain and keep clean.
  • High temperature operation – Able to tolerate the temperatures of a motorcycle exhaust, maintaining appearance even with exposure to road dirt and water spray. Many of our motorcycle exhaust coatings are able to operate at temperatures in excess of 1,000°C.
  • Thermal insulation – Many of our motorcycle exhaust coatings provide a significant thermal barrier effect.  Allowing designers and engineers to better manage heat, reduce surface temperatures, protect vulnerable components close to the exhaust, reduce heat soak, and reduce the risk of burns.  Made possible by surface temperature reductions of up to 33%.
  • Performance & emission control – Our motorcycle exhaust coatings allow motorcycle exhaust system parts to be better packaged within the limited space available.

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

Zircotec offers a plasma-spray thermal barrier ceramic coating; exhaust coatings; exhaust manifold coatings; inlet manifold coatings; and heat shield materials.

Exhaust motorcycle coating

Endurance Range™

Thermal Barrier Coatings – Our high performance plasma sprayed thermal barrier coatings reduce heat transfer even under the most extreme conditions, allowing motorcycle designers and engineers to manage heat. This can lead to improved performance. emission control, improved cold-start conditions, reduced component surface temperature, reduced heat soak, reduced risk of burns, and a reduced risk to other components close to the exhaust. These exhaust motorcycle 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 motorcycle exhaust system and its components. With a wide range of colours and finishes available, we have exhaust motorcycle coatings that are capable of operating at temperatures in excess of 1,000°C.

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

Heat shield materials

Our ZircoFlex®  high performance heat shield materials can be used to protect vulnerable components close to the exhaust but can also be deployed inside the muffler section to reduce heat transfer outwards.  These heat shields are used by OEM manufacturers, MotoGP racing teams and amateur Motorsport teams.  You can buy these heat shields directly from our Online Shop.
