Our Coating is Thin but Tough-As-Nails!

Flexible – Our coating can stretch over and over again without cracking or breaking.

Thin – Typically, between 2 to 3 microns. That’s hair-on-a-flea thin.

Slick – Friction is tough on high-performance, fast-moving engine parts. Hard carbon offers a coating that can handle the heat.

Good Under Pressure – The hotter our coating gets, the better it performs, turning to graphite (a natural lubricant) as it breaks down.
