Zircotec Introduces High Performance Ceramic Coatings for Exhaust Tailpipes, Finishers & Trims

Published on 2013-01-02. Author : SpecialChem

Zircotec has developed a range of high performance ceramic coatings specifically for tailpipe applications. These coatings are an extension of their Performance Colours™ exhaust coating range, but with a formulation developed specifically for tailpipe applications, offering a surface finish and texture that is robust and easily maintained.

In addition to being able to deal with high exhaust gas temperatures, their tailpipe coatings are designed to offer protection against corrosion and abrasion - even under severe stone chipping. These coatings are resistant to staining and color change, providing an attractive aesthetic finish when bare metal or chrome would have long since lost its appearance.

Zircotec has called this as their Performance Colours™ Range for Tailpipes. The available colors are designed to provide a good match with its exhaust coating color options.

About Zircotec

Formally part of the Atomic Energy Authority, Zircotec's high temperature coating and heat barrier processes and technologies were originally developed for the nuclear industry.

Zircotec's involvement in motorsport stretches back to 1994 when the thermal barrier coating was applied to the exhausts and manifold of Subaru rally cars to lower in-cabin temperatures. Since then the high temperature coating has been applied to vehicles from F1 cars to trucks together with an increasing number of applications for prestigious sports car manufacturers looking for thermal management and heat barrier solutions to manage heat from high performance engines. More recently, Zircotec's ThermoHold™ thermal coatings have been proven to be highly successful in the thermal management of high performance and classic car applications, increasing overall reliability and performance.
