How long will the coatings last?
Intel’s CT-2 ceramic thermal barrier and CT-5 oil shedding, corrosion resistant coatings are virtually permanent.
Intel’s CT-1 and CT-3 dry film lubricants are “sacrificial” in nature and eventually wear out. But rather than wearing out the engine part, the coating absorbs the wear — saving you time and money on expensive engine parts. It is also possible to re-coat and further extend the life of the coated parts at a fraction of the replacement cost (i.e. pistons, etc.).
PVD/PECVD coatings are highly corrosion resistant and virtually permanent. It has been proven that the actual part will wear out long before the coating does. These coatings extend your tool/part life and can help your company realize significant savings in replacement costs and in helping your mean time between occurrences.
