Our coatings are highly effective when used on engine exhaust system components including exhaust manifolds, exhaust headers, cat boxes, turbochargers and tail pipes, helping to protect heat sensitive components from the effects of heat. They reduce under-bonnet temperatures, increase engine performance, help solve engine packaging issues and improve engine compartment safety. Based on Zircotec's proprietary ThermoHold® formulation, these coatings can only be applied by Zircotec. Furthermore, patent applications have been filed to protect many of our coatings.

For any heat barrier and thermal management issues, Zircotec's technical specialists can provide advice no matter how demanding the requirements. Zircotec specialists can also provide expert advice on a range of surface engineering issues.

Formerly part of the UK Atomic Energy Authority, Zircotec high temperature ceramic coatings, processes and technologies were originally developed for the UK nuclear industry. Most of our team of specialist scientists and engineers have followed Zircotec from its nuclear origins. They have continued to develop and refine Zircotec high temperature coatings resulting in the high technology products that we supply today. Our technical development work is ongoing and continues to deliver new and improved products.

Zircotec involvement in motor-sport stretches back to 1994 when its proprietary ceramic coatings were first applied to rally cars. Our thermal coatings have been used across almost all forms of motor-sport, they have been proven to be highly successful in the thermal management of high performance and classic car applications, increasing overall reliability and performance, and our coatings are now used on a broad range of vehicles from F1 cars to a number of production cars, trucks and buses. Additionally our coatings are now being applied to a range of performance parts for OEM and also after market suppliers.
