nCoat Subsidiary HPC Provides Heat Management Coating Aimed at Boosting Aftermarket Turbocharger Sales

Published on 2007-07-25. Author : SpecialChem

WHITSETT, NC -- nCoat, Inc. ("nCoat" or the "Company") has introduced through its operating subsidiary, High Performance Coatings (HPC), a heat and corrosion management coating for Squires Turbo Systems (STS) of Orem, Utah for all turbo pipe connections from manufacturers' engines to Squires rear mounted turbochargers. STS produces the only remote turbocharger system for multiple makes and models of performance automobiles. HPC coats STS turbo parts with a highly burnished, heat management coating that maintains an exceptionally bright appearance that does not tarnish with use while helping manage the extreme heat produced in turbocharger environments.

HPC Heat Management Coating applied to STS C6 Turbo Kit.

Founded by Rick Squires in 2003, STS is revolutionizing the aftermarket performance industry with patented remote mounted turbo systems for cars, trucks and SUVs. Remote mounted turbo systems are superior to traditional turbo systems and superchargers because they are efficient, less intrusive, easy to install, reliable and generate amazing horsepower and torque. Turbo systems generate usable horsepower boost between 2500 and 5000 rpm. Because STS turbo systems have significantly lower Intake Air Temperatures, STS remote mounted turbo systems often generate more horsepower per pound of boost than front mounted turbo systems. STS turbo systems are one of the few turbo systems that are legal in all 50 states.

"When someone buys a high-end exhaust system, they expect a high-gloss finish," said Rick Squires, Vice President of Research and Development at STS Turbo. "But more importantly, they also expect that finish to last. STS uses HPC's H05 coating on its turbo kits. These coatings are durable and functional with a high level of malleability and excellent adhesion."

The H05 coating is part of HPC's "H Series" coatings that allow engine parts to maintain a uniform temperature over the entire area of the underlying material. When the coatings are used in high temperature exhaust gas path applications, the temperature in the tube is maintained uniformly throughout the pipe, decreasing the low air density. Increased gas path temperatures and decreased pressures assist increased engine efficiencies. Using HPC H05 coating, Squires reports that its turbo kits can deliver 5-20 psi of boost. STS switched to HPC coating processes after conventional chrome finishes could not withstand high temperatures.

"HPC coats approximately 80 parts for STS Turbo per week," said Paul Clayson, CEO of HPC parent company, nCoat. "The volume through-put of our plants can easily meet the demands of multiple accounts of this size and larger. When performance leaders need results, they turn to HPC."

HPC's innovative coatings technologies, including many nano-technology applications, provide a high gloss performance finish that maintains luster under high heat conditions. HPC's engineering, research and development departments provide cutting edge coatings that can perform at the increasingly stringent demands of today's environments.
