H.M. Elliott offers the following Piston Coatings:
Ceramic Heat Shield (HS44): Ceramic coating used on Piston Domes to reflect heat away from piston and back into combustion chamber. This coating helps keep the top of the piston cooler which reduces the opportunity for distortion and skirt galling. This reflection will help insure a more efficient fuel burn and combustion. In applications such as diesel engines this can result in significant gains in Power and Fuel Economy.
JB-1 is an extreme performance coating for the skirts that can be applied in layers to offer different clearance options. This coating is designed when extreme heat, load and wear resistance is needed.
