Powerkote also has an extensive range of engine coatings, which are products from Techline Inc, USA and include ceramic lubricants ; two dry film lubricants ; high load durable lubricants; powercoat lubricants; thermal dispersants; lubricated thermal barriers; and high heat ID coatings.
Differentiators of Powerkote ceramic coatings compared to other products include good flexibility due to microfilm coverage; highest rate of adhesion to withstand extreme thermal shock; high impact resistance and ease of application.
PowerKote has a large range of products and will advise you on the right coating for the application.
Powerkote's range of ceramic coatings is used to treat metal parts or components across a broad range of applications and industries, including aerospace, automotive, harbours, mining, petro-chemical, paper and pulp, power generation, plants, shipping, timber and transport, to name a few. In fact, any application where corrosion, heat and friction can result in wear and tear.
Powerkote, with its original offices and plant in Johannesburg, Gauteng, South Africa, expanded into the various Cape and KwaZulu Natal regions during 2004 with the opening of Powerkote Cape (Pty) and Powerkote Natal (Pty) to meet the demand for this patented range of high tech industrial ceramic coatings.
Both regional companies have fully fledged offices and plants similar to the Gauteng operation in order to extend a full application service to these areas. Powerkote has an extensive advisory service locally to solve applications problems, as well as direct and quick access to engineers at Techline Coatings USA.
