The choice of Pros for maximum power, minimum wear

There’s no cylinder bore coating like Apticote 2000. Unlike the traditional Nikasil cylinder bore coatings, Apticote 2000 ceramic coating is inspired by exciting breakthroughs in aerospace technology.

Proven to give superior adhesion, Apticote 2000 resists the devastating effects of piston seizure whilst giving increased power, as well as reduced piston skirt and ring wear. Discover why you can depend on Apticote 2000 to deliver game-changing power and durability in your pro or performance engines.

Whether you’re an engine manufacturer, a mechanic working on a cylinder or an enthusiast carrying out high-performance tuning, we provide unbeatable cylinder plating and honing for both 2 & 4-stroke engines.
