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
High Temp Coatings maintain functionality in a high heat environment and protect against corrosion for Steel & Ignition Barriers

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 in an automotive or diesel specification, it is applied in a way that meets all the necessary requirements in the related specification.
