TBCs are a type of Green Technology that is becoming increasingly popular within the automotive industry due to their effectiveness in reducing heat loss within an engine. This reduced heat loss allows engines to use less energy to maintain their desired temperature, thereby increasing fuel efficiency. We specialize in both developing and applying these types of coatings to engine parts. We have even developed a unique densification process that allows us to seal the porosity of the TBCs which decreases their rate of absorption, allowing our TBCs to outperform and outlast our competition.

We have developed our own line of TBCs, AdiaBlock, which possess low thermal conductivities and the ability to be applied at a thicker specification.

Friction & Wear coatings are designed to extend the lives of desired engine parts by providing a permanent or semi-permanent lubrication to their surface. This lubrication allows parts to run more smoothly and wear at a much lower rate. We have spent years developing specialized friction & wear coatings that exhibit minimal friction coefficients and maximal wear resistance.


We have developed a line excellent friction & wear coatings, AdiaWear, along with a sealant, for engine applications:

AdiaWear Thermo-Seal


Properties:

  • Applicable on a Wide Variety of Substrates
  • Improves Coating Layer's Cohesive Bond Strength by 35% - 80%
  • Improves Coating Hardness by 50% - 80%
  • Maximum Use Temperature: 980 C
  • Quick, Low-Cost Application
  • Safer, as Coating Structure is Maintained by Metal Substrate
  • Variable (Low and High) Range of Thermal Conductivities
  • Good Corrosion Resistance to Liquids and Gases
  • Dramatically Reduces Open Surface Porosity
  • Excellent High and Low Temperature Friction Coefficients
