Nickel Ceramic –
Apticote Ceramic 2000 is the premier cylinder bore coating technology, providing superior performance to that given by conventional Ni/Ceramic composite electroplates. Apticote 2000 is a metal matrix coating comprising a mix of nickel with suspended silicon carbide particles. Poeton’s technology and tailored process ensures superior adhesion to the substrate as well as being slicker and harder than similar coatings.
560-600Hv, controlled with precise chemistry and ceramic content. The ceramic filler is distributed evenly throughout the coating thickness, with the content optimised for a combination of wear resistance and toughness.
Little or no wear
Coats a range of surfaces
Apticote 2000 can be applied to cast iron, steel or aluminium alloys; liners, cylinders or blocks. Easy honing on engine cylinders
Superb bonding to substrate
Engine cylinder bores
