KECO has been applying heat resistant thermal barrier coatings (TBCs) since 1980. This coating technology, which was originally developed in the aircraft industry, has been successfully transferred to high-performance industries requiring processes resistant to severe temperature and chemical environments. Industries served include automotive, die-casting, glass containers, and thermal processing. Our portfolio includes KECO 400B, a low-cost TBC that resists up to 2000°F, which is used on racecar exhaust systems. For requirements that exceed 2000°F, we can apply KECO 600Z, a plasma-coated ceramic coating offering resistance up to 2300°F.
KECO 400: A metallic ceramic coating with performance characteristics of a dry film lubricant, this coating is formulated for thermal barrier applications. Heat resistant up to 1200°F, KECO 400 resists most aggressive organic and inorganic solvents. It can be used in a variety of applications, including on glass containers, turbine engines, discs, spacers mufflers, exhaust pipes, manifolds, and engine bolts. Click here for Product Data Sheet.
KECO 600: A thermal, plasma, wire arc, metalizing and flame spray, applications include chromium carbide, chromium oxide, tungsten carbide cobalt, and others that are designed for long-term performance. Formulated for thermal barrier, plus wear and surface restoration, the strength and density of this plasma coating makes it a favored option for equipment protection and refinishing. Able to resist temperatures up to 500°F and down to cryogenic temperatures, examples of applications include shafts, exhaust components, industrial knives, and idler rollers.
