Ten supplying coating processes to the racing and high-performance industries. With another Daytona 500 in the books (congratulations to rookie Austin Cindric), we want to highlight a couple of our coatings that are specially designed for the performance racing industry, including Teflon and KECO 400.
Teflon: KECO’s portfolio consists of hundreds of fluoropolymer formulations, including Teflon®, PTFE®, FEP® and Teflon® PFA® – designed to offer a wide range of nonstick attributes. More specifically, the high-performance fluoropolymers provide low-friction surfaces, increase efficiency and longevity, and enable car parts to withstand harsh environments, according to teflon.com. KECO’s coatings will release virtually any substance, including ink, glue, food, paint, varnish, adhesives, foam, rubber, and plastic. The applications include but are not limited to carbon steel, aluminum, stainless steel, brass, and glass. KECO has been applying Teflon® Industrial Coatings for nearly 30 years and is one of only 22 applicators in the United States licensed by DuPont.
KECO 400: A metallic ceramic coating with performance characteristics of a dry film lubricant, KECO 400’s defining feature is its ability to reduce exhaust temperatures. In fact, it’s heat resistant up to 1200°F and resists most aggressive organic and inorganic solvents. In addition to exhaust pipes, KECO 400 can be used in a variety of other applications, including turbine engines, discs, spacers mufflers, manifolds, and engine bolts.
