Zircotec Group Operating from Temporary Premises

We are delighted to announce that Zircotec Group is now operating from temporary premises following last week’s fire. Our telephone numbers remain the same. The address is: 28 Nuffield Way, Abingdon OX14 1RL

We are operating at limited capacity, though this is growing daily, and we are now accepting all customer parts, including OEM and F1. We are continuing to make good progress securing our new home, with a formal announcement to follow shortly. We are on course to be fully up and running there within the next couple of months.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank our customers, suppliers and supporters for all their good wishes. The team here really appreciates your kind words.

If you would like to speak with us about work you have commissioned or are planning to send to us, please call us on +44(0)1235 546050 or mobile +44(0) 7968 707419.

We look forward to hearing from you!

Zircotec Group Ranges

Our Expertise

We are specialists in heat management. We are also experts in plasma-spray processing and the production of high performance surface coatings and finishes. Our technical specialists are able to provide advice on most thermal barrier, heat management and surface engineering issues.

We apply this knowledge to a broad range of sectors including motorsport, general automotive, nuclear, aerospace and defence, providing both expert advice and specialist products to our customer base. We supply:

  • Plasma-sprayed thermal barrier coatings; exhaust coatings; exhaust manifold coatings; inlet manifold coatings; engine coatings; turbo charger housing coatings; exhaust header coatings & heat shield materials.
  • Wear resistant, anti-corrosion and aesthetic coatings, finished in either ceramic or metal.
  • Ceramic coating and metal coatings for carbon composites and some plastics, providing an heat and fire resistance, and also protection against abrasion and wear.
  • Specialist plasma-sprayed ceramic products.

Zircotec’s Ceramic Coating

We have developed a range of ultra-high performance plasma-sprayed ceramic coating to protect components from the effects of fire, heat, wear, abrasion and corrosion.

Our ceramic coating is highly effective when used on engine exhaust system components including exhaust manifolds, exhaust headers, cat boxes, turbochargers and tailpipes, helping to protect sensitive components from the effects of heat. As an exhaust coating, they reduce under bonnet temperatures, increase engine performance, help solve engine packaging issues and improve engine compartment safety. Based on our proprietary ThermoHold® formulation, our ceramic coating range can only be applied by Zircotec. A series of patent applications are in progress (with two now granted) to protect our technology. Our ceramic coating has been proven to:

  • Reduce under bonnet temperatures by up to 50oC (122oF), as independently measured & confirmed by DAMAX Race Engineering.
  • Reduce surface temperatures by 33%.
  • Increase engine performance, eg. a 30oC drop in intake air temperature can deliver a 6% increase in power, or can increase engine efficiency leading to less fuel usage.
  • Extend the life of vulnerable components and thereby enhance engine reliability.
