The combination of Apticote 2000 and precision honing ensures superb wear resistance, minimum oil loss and blow-by, and maximum piston ring sealing, from the first revs to the last, with compression guaranteed.
 
Apticote 2000 is the latest in coating technology. Its features include:
  • Improved adhesion
  • Improved resistance to scuffing
  • Improved particle size and distribution
  • Lower friction
  • Harder and harder wearing
  • Improved power output
  • Extended life
  • Superior oil retention
  • Superior price/performance and delivery

The Apticote 2000 coating has two main constituents, a hardened metal matrix plus extremely hard ceramic particles incorporated in the matrix. A cross section of the coating examined under a high magnification is shown. This is a typical Aptec production coating containing approximately 15% by voloume hard, ceramic phase.

Ceramic Content

Our current ceramic content specification for high performance engine applications is 12% - 16% by volume. The graph below shows how ceramaic content in the Apticote 2000 coating affects its wear and frictiojn characteristics.

 
Materials

We can also offer this coating on a choice of materials including :-

  • Aluminium
  • Cast Iron
  • Steel
  • Metal Matrix Alloys

We would be pleased to discuss your specific requirements
