Zircotec has been revealed as providing cutting-edge heat management expertise to protect Aston Martin’s Valkyrie from tailpipe gas temperatures upwards of 600°C.

‘Everything around the rear end of the car is ceramic Zircotec-coated because of the temperatures we see here – about 600 degrees C,’ said Libby Meigh, Colour and Material Manager for Aston Martin.*

The Aston Martin Valkyrie is a 6.5L 1160bhp V12 hypercar designed in collaboration with RedBull advanced technologies, F1 technology for the road.

“Zircotec is proud to have been specified on the Aston Martin Valkyrie again,” said Graeme Barette, Sales Director at Zircotec. “The use of our ceramic coating not only provides an aesthetically attractive finish, but through advanced thermal management of exhaust temperatures, it protects the amazing packaging from tailpipe gas temperatures upwards of 600°C.”
