  • Piston rings
  • Engine blocks
  • Cylinder liners
  • Turbochargers
  • Oxygen sensors
  • Alternator covers
  • Con rods

Thermal spray technologies used in Automotive Industry:

Some applications in transmission and engine parts have already been developed to the large volume production stage, where cost efficiency, productivity and quality are the main driving factors. Small volume applications are also commonplace within the high performance car market, such as: Formula 1, Le Mans, Touring Car and Nascar – where thermal spray coatings are providing specialised functions i.e. control of friction coefficient for either self-lubrication or increased grip, clearance control, electrical insulation or prolonged component longevity by preventing wear, scuffing or corrosion.
