Performance Diesel™ is ideal for commercial, agricultural and industrial vehicle manufacturers

Zircotec’s heat management coatings offer crucial heat reductions specifically for commercial vehicle OEMs to improve efficiency and meet stringent emissions regulations. Effective heat management is a fundamental aspect of improving long-term reliability, reducing vehicle down time and saving running costs for service operators.

Performance DieselTM offers the following benefits for OEMs:

A durable fit-and-forget coating – our proprietary metal bond system creates an incredibly resilient base layer, essentially allowing the substrate to be welded in place. Regular reapplications are unnecessary, saving heavily on long-term maintenance costs.

Offers OEMs new cost-saving measures – the coating can enable engineers to solve existing heat issues without a major redesign of the engine bay as well as offering the opportunity to delete heatshields.

High level of thermal performance – this ceramic coating has been proven to reduce surface temperatures by ~25%. 

Increase engine efficiency to help meet new Euro VI emissions regulations and stringent testing procedures for trucks and buses. Turbo units can spool up faster with increased internal temperatures for improved performance and economy.

Ease of fitment on the production line – our coatings are applied in a very thin layer of just 0.3mm for a minimal change in external diameter.

Trapping heat inside the exhaust offers protection for vulnerable components such as electronics, fuel lines or plastics located nearby, avoiding heat damage, increasing long-term reliability and overall performance.

Rapid cooling of the exhaust and turbo when the engine is turned off – the surface temperature of our exhaust coating drops quickly after the engine is turned off, reducing servicing times.

Reduced heat soak through to cab or passenger compartments – to improve comfort and reduce the need for additional heavy insulation materials. 

Ideal for non-visual parts where thermal management is more essential than aesthetics. Ideal for under vehicle or non-visible applications 

A three year product guarantee – this coating is covered by Zircotec’s 3 year comprehensive product guarantee.
