Henkel to Discuss its Latest Coating Technology for Automotive Applications at SAE World Congress

Published on 2012-04-25. Author : SpecialChem

Henkel will discuss its new coating technology for automotive combustion engine applications in a technical presentation at SAE World Congress and Exposition. It highlights a study Henkel conducted in collaboration with FEV that shows that Henkel's Electro Ceramic coating technology reduces emission formation and has the potential to reduce fuel consumption inside the combustion chamber of internal combustion engines.

In addition to the findings of the study, the technical session will also touch upon the superior corrosion resistance properties exhibited in high temperature and harsh environments. The flexible coating can be used on a variety of light metal substrates, and is the first of its type based on titanium oxides electrodeposited from electrically assisted hydrolysis of metal complexes. "With the introduction of new CAFE standards in the automotive industry, it is more important then ever to utilize materials that reduce fuel consumption," says Chuck Evans, Corporate Vice President, North America automotive, Henkel. "Henkel's study with FEV which we will be presenting will show how these Electro Ceramic Coatings can help meet these standards."
