Aptec Motorsport is Poeton’s specialist division focussing on cylinder bore coating for engines used in motorbikes, drones, cars and racing karts. A replacement for traditional Nikasil coatings, Apticote 2000 is a Nickel Ceramic solution that provides superior adhesion and is inspired by Poeton’s research and development in the aerospace sector.
The Apticote 2000 Advantage
- Extended cylinder life – Ultra-wear resistant with a slicker, harder coating that’s better bonded to the substrate
- Higher performance – Even in the most demanding race conditions, from karts and off-roaders to GP bikes
- Superior oil retention – When you need it most, right up to and over 18,000 rpm, with improved resistance to scuffing
- Reduced friction – Between cylinder wall and piston ring, plus better surface lubricant retention
- Improved power – Delivering extra race-winning power over original supply or steel sleeves
