Engine performance is improved in a number of ways.
Our coating reduces engine bay temperatures, and can therefore help reduce air intake temperature. A drop in intake air temperature of just 30°C can deliver a 6% increase in power (or increased engine efficiency, leading to less fuel usage). In some race applications, customers have carried out independent tests where our coating has demonstrated a reduction in engine compartment temperatures by as much as 50°C, giving a potential 10% increase in power.
By keeping the exhaust gases hot, they flow more easily through the exhaust and this aids cylinder scavenging. This benefits all engine types, though the effect is potentially most pronounced for 2-stroke engines.
Keeping heat in the exhaust gas allows turbochargers to spool up more quickly making turbocharged engines more responsive.
