CT-5 PTFE Coating

Description

CT-5 coating is a non-stick oil-shedding coating for aluminum, steel, and stainless steel substrates to assist in returning lubricating oil back to the reservoir. Doing so reduces parasitic drag or windage on rotating assemblies.

Substrate(s)

  • Aluminum
  • Steel
  • Stainless Steel

Temp. Ratings

  • Process Temp: 400°(204°C)
  • Max Temp: 500°(260°C)
  • Int. Temp: 600°(315°C)

Thickness

  • Thickness (mil): 1 - 2

Color(s)

  • Camo

Process

CT-5 non-stick PTFE coating is applied as a spray process. Different surface preparatory methods appropriate for the substrates will be used prior to the coating process. Typical coating thickness is 1.0 mil per coat (0.001 inch or 25 microns) up to three coats. May be used on all aluminum, steel and stainless steel substrates.

Advantages

Reduces windage and parasitic drag on rotating assemblies in race engine applications. Frees up horsepower

  • Non-wetting
