ceramic engine coatings
I(nown also as dry fi1mlubricants,they are subdividedinto two categorres.
In the 1970s,Swain Tech Coatingsdevelopedthe first successfulceramic enginecoatings.Sincethen, Swainis recognizedas the nation's
leaderin coatingtechnology.Our researchand developmentprogram
continuesto perfectnew coatingsfor new applications.'Wenow offer

have formulated specificcoatingsto control heat, friction and wear.Our coatingsaddressthree dynamic categoriesof vehicle performance;
A. Self-lubricating low friction coatings
Selflubricating dry (or solid) coatingsare appliedto piston skirts;engine
bearings;valve stems;valve springs;camshafts;oil and fuel pumps, etc.
Thesedry coatings,while being selflubricating also hold oil on surfaces
and havea very low coefficientof friction. Swainhasspecificformulations
for sliding friction and for rotating friction. Poly-Mbly'" and PC-9'" are
usedfor sliding friction, typicallyon piston skirts-hereit reducespistonto-cylinderfriction and bore wear. PPM'" is used
for rotational friction on bearings.For example
testshaveshown that uncoatedbearingscan run
30 degreeshotter than the engineoil. With PPM
on bearingsthat temperatureis reduced significantly.Self-lubricatinglow friction coatingsdramaticallyincreasethe life of the valvespringsand
allowsthe spring to hold its tensionlonger.AII of
these Swain formulas are very helpful when engine parts are momentarily starvedof oil. These
coatingsare usuallylessthan .001"thick so machining tolerancesrarelyhaveto be altered.
1. Thermal barrier coatingsreducesheattransfer
2. Low friction coatingsreducespower-robbingfriction

3. Heat emitting coatingspromotesheattransfer
(dissipation)
1. Thermal barrier coatings
Thesecoatingshold in heat.Controiledheat makespower.The more
heat you generateand control, the more horsepoweryou make.Butl
Internal combustionenginesare horrible at managingheat and only
use about 25o/o
of the heat energycreatedby the combustionprocess.
Most heat escapesthrough the exhaustsystem.Heat not exhaustedis
absorbedinto the engine
ports and valve facesallow
Uncoatedpistons,combustioncl-rambers,

B. Oil shedding low friction coatings
Oil sheddingtypes of dry film coatingsare used on connecting rods
and crankshaftcounter weightsto reduceparasiticoil drag. It is also
used on oil pans to aid in oil drain-back.These non-stick coatings
causeoil to bead up (high surfacetension) and prevent the oil from
rlinoino
t^ nrrts
3. Heat emitting coatings
The third type of coating is for heat dissipation.Swain'sformulas
contain high emissivitymaterialslike copper oxides,vanadium and
ferriteswhich radiateheat away from a surface.Black Body Emitter
(BBE") is appliedto the exteriorsof brake calipersand rotors, intake
manifolds,heads,intercoolers,air cooled cylindersand other engine
parts which tend to retain unwanted heat. BBE is semi-gloss,very
functionaland very durable.
Conclusion: Now you can understand that Swain'scoatings solve
many problems of internal combustion piston engines and downstream power train parts. You are probably thinking this is all very
expensive,not true! You could haveSwainapply dome and skirt coatings to your plston for under $40 or an entire V-8 enginefor lessthan
$i500. The immediatebenefit would be a 2 to 5% increasein horsepower but thats not the only reason to use Swain'scoatings.Longterm benefitsinclude;
1. Extendingenginedurability
2. Reducingfriction
3. Increasingreliability
4. Improving power via thermal
emclency
Swain'scoatingsprotect the money you spendon a high performance
enginewhich is now stressedand prone to a reducedlife expectancy.
If you use coatingsto protect; pistons,combustion chambers,valves
and springs,ports, headersand bearings-you'llget the most bang for
the buck in terms of power and durability.

Internal engine coatings
"Heat makespower'l Too much heat causescomponent failure. Swain applies coatings to control and
manageheat for optimum performance.Enginesoperateby convertingthermal energy(heat)into kinetic
movement energy.A typical engine only converts
about 25 to 30%of its thermal energyinto horsepower. The unusedheat is wasted
and is absorbedinto pistons,
heads, ports, valves and exhaust systemswhere it has a
negative effect. Swain Tech
Coatingsmanagethis negative heat transfer to obtain
optimal power, performance
and part durability.

time,it transferslessheat.An ideal

aluminum rotors from warping and protects titanium rotors from galling.If your rotor is
