Nuclear Industry

  • Zircotec’s high temperature coating and heat barrier processes and technology were originally developed for the Nuclear Industry.

  • Zircotec was formerly part of the Atomic Energy Authority.


  • Zircotec was first involved in Motorsport in 1994.

  • We applied thermal barrier coating to the exhausts and manifolds of Subaru Rally Cars to lower in-cabin temperatures.

  • Since then, our high temperature coating has been applied to vehicles from Formula 1 cars through to trucks.

Performance Colours™

  • The Performance Colours™ range was launched in 2005.

  • The range was designed as our proprietary range of high temperature quality finishes for our ThermoHold® based ceramic coating.

  • It has similar levels of performance to the Performance White™ exhaust coating, but with a surface finish that is robust and easily maintained.

Zircotec Ltd.

  • In 2006, Zircotec officially became a limited company.

  • In 2008, Zircotec received its first OEM contract with the supercar manufacturers, Lamborghini.


  • In 2009, ZircoFlex® was created.

  • ZircoFlex® is a heatshield material that is versatile and acts as a superb thermal barrier at minimal weight and thickness.

Endurance Range™

  • In 2009, Zircotec launched its Endurance Range™ for Motorcycles.
