As your all involved in performance enhancing work on engines you may
be interested in the special surface coatings that can be used on specific engine parts. These coatings have the lowest possible coefficient of friction levels (the closest to PTFE) available.
They also have extremely high wear resistance. These coatings are used on NASCAR, DTM, Formula 1 and Formula 3 engines as a few examples.
Check out the following link.
If you are interested in using these coatings please drop me a line or call my mobile on 0417 384 029. I would be happy to discuss the process with you. We also have a motor engineer working with us who is a M.I.A.M.E.
if you have specific technical questions.
At the moment these coatings will be done off shore (either in Europe or the USA), however we are in the process of bringing this technology to Australia. The benefits are huge.
Example: NASCAR engines used to be fully rebuilt after each race, after these coatings were introduced they now get two races per engine! The loads these engines are under this is a perfect example. The cost savings in time and parts is enormous.
