High Temperature Coatings & Thermal Management Coatings
With the requirement of automotive and diesel engines to run cleaner and more efficient than ever before, there is a continued need for thermal management and high temperature resistant coatings.
Typical applications for thermal management and high temperature resistant coatings include, but are not limited to:
- Intake manifolds
- Exhaust manifolds
- Exhaust gaskets
- Electrical components that are affected by high temperatures
Thermal Management: Thermal Barrier & Dispersant Coatings
Thermal barrier coatings can be applied on their own or in conjunction with a thermal dispersant coating. If you are experiencing an issue related to excessive temperatures, DECC may have an answer to your problem.
Thermal barrier coatings act as their name would imply: they block/reduce the radiating surface temperature of the substrate. They can also be applied over a dispersant coating.
Dispersant coatings aid in transferring heat generated by an isolated high temperature area of a component throughout the surface of the substrate. Not only does this ultimately reduce heat, but it can also improve the functionality of a thermal barrier coating when used in tandem.
In some applications, customers have reported a decrease in component surface temperature of 15 - 20%. As each application is different, DECC can coat samples free of charge for you to validate the potential solution.
High Temperature Resistance Coatings
DECC applies a variety of high temperature resistant coatings. These vary from thermal management coatings in that they aren't expected to combat excessive heat, but maintain their functionality in a high heat environment. Usually focused on either combating various forms of corrosion or providing lubrication between mating components, DECC can make a recommendation on a coating we think can solve your issue.
Automotive & Diesel Specifications
OEM's are held to strict standards, which is why we take pains to ensure that if a coating is called out on an automotive or diesel specification, it is applied in a way that meets all the necessary requirements in the related specification.
