Thermal Barrier Coatings

Zirconium-based Plasma Ceramics

Thermal Barrier Coatings (TBC) are plasma-ceramics applied to act as a heat shield for components. A common application is on exhaust parts; TBCs contain heat inside headers and pipes, dramatically reducing under-hood temperatures and promoting the scavenging effect and accelerating the hot gas out of the exhaust system.

Heat Dissipating Coatings

Aluminum-based Plasma Ceramics

In addition to containing or blocking heat, how thermal barrier coatings do, MBI Performance has coatings designed to dissipate heat at faster rates than the components base material. These coatings act as a thermal dispersant that absorbs and disperses the heat rather than reflecting it. Typical applications include intercoolers, radiators, oil pans, valve covers and heat exchangers.

Friction Reduction Coatings

Dry film lubricants offered by MBI Performance Coatings create a sacrificial layer that provide lubrication in critical situations that would otherwise result in metal-on-metal conact. Dry film lubricants drastically reduce the risk of galling or seizing should an engine lose oil pressure while running.

Oil Shedding Coatings

Oil shedding components help reduce the buildup of varnish and sludge deposits inside an engine with the added benefit of reducing oil foaming and temperature. These coatings will also protect bare metal components from rust and corrosion.


Powder Coating

Certified Prismatic Powders® Applicator

MBI's Powder Coatings offer versatility and options for any size part; everything from wheels to a medium chassis. We can coat to matte, high-gloss, pearl, multi-layer and even textured finishes. We offer powders that can resist temperatures up to 1,200°F.

Certified Cerakote Applicator

Originally created for use as a firearm coating, Cerakote has expanded and found many uses in the automotive field. Cerakote can be coupled with MBI Performance Coatings Thermal Barrier Coatings or Heat Dissipation Coatings to enhance their properties (up to 2,000°F) as well as visual appeal. 


Component Restoration

Bring old parts back to life! We are able to fill in porosity in worn metal surfaces using our thermal spray systems, then give them a beautiful finish with a powder, ceramic, or liquid ceramic top coat.
