Compared to uncoated mild steel, HiPerCoat® retains 70% more heat energy. HiPerCoat’s properties also keep the pipe temperature uniform, so the pipe temperature end to end is more consistant. By keeping the gasses in the pipe hotter throughout the length of the pipe a stronger, better timed pressure wave is seen at the port.
Engine and Drivetrain Coatings
HPC offers a variety of engine coatings to make more horsepower and promote longer engine life. HPC’s piston coatings are especially suited to snowmobile and ATV engines. Thermal barrier coating (TBC) helps maintain combustion temperatures and prevent heat soak to the rings, causing radial tension loss leading to losses in compression and excessive oil consumption. Applied to the combustion chamber also, TBC helps to maximize the amount of heat kept in the cylinder and even over the piston, thus promoting a more efficient burn of the air/fuel and increasing horsepower output.
