Horsepower increased by an average of 2.1% on pistons coated with our SS15 Skirt Coating.
Our coating is a superior blend of Molybdenum Disulfide (MoS2), Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) and Graphite. This blend ensures high-temperature and high-load capability.
In our test, fuel economy improved by an average of 2.46%. With increasingly stringent government regulations pressuring engine manufacturers to increase fuel economy, our piston coating services make sense. Piston skirt coating reduces friction between the piston and cylinder, improving engine efficiency.
Durability extends engine life
Piston skirt scuffing occurs when the piston reaches the end of it's stroke and changes directions abruptly. The piston skirt compresses the oil film and can potentially break through, allowing metal-to-metal contact. This leads to wear on the piston and cylinder wall.
With consumer demand driving engine manufacturers to extend warranty periods, our piston coating services, at a minimal cost per piston, minimize scuffing and extend engine life.
