Ceramic coatings can provide numerous benefits to the aftermarket industry in terms of both aesthetic and thermal performance.  With temperature reductions up to 33%, Zircotec coatings are widely recognised as the best thermal barriers to manufacturing, motorsport and aftermarket customers.

Ceramic Coatings for the Road

We offer a wide range of thermal barrier coatings within the engine bay and exhaust systems including; exhaust manifold coatings, inlet manifold coatings, turbo housing coatings, downpipe coatings, tailpipe coatings, silencer coatings.  We also work with various other areas of a vehicle that are or can be affected by heat. 

Our coatings are plasma-applied using a top of the range robotic system, giving ultimate quality and thermal barrier efficiency. 

Zircotec Ceramic Coatings Benefits

Our thermal barrier ceramic coatings are excellent for heat management, offering increased engine power and efficiency.

We have a vast array of colour options, styles and finishes to choose from, all equally applicable to both new and used parts

Reductions of more than 50℃ possible.  Reducing air intake temperatures, increasing power and helping to eliminate fuel evaporation problems, with rapid cooling when the engine is turned off.

Reduced heat loss from the exhaust gas allows turbochargers to spool-up more quickly

Exhaust surface temperatures can be reduced by up to 33%, with greater reductions for components close to the exhaust.

Avoiding heat damage, increasing component life, and allowing much closer packaging inside the engine bay.

Our coatings are in effect “welded” in place, forming a solid ceramic layer over the surface of the exhaust.

Drivers are potentially cooler and more comfortable with vastly reduced heat transfer from the engine compartment.

Each of our product lines have been developed from nuclear thermal barrier technology, and you can find further information about each of these products here:
