FWD offers Cerakote Piston coat & Micro Slick - the performance ceramic coating 

Cerakote Piston Coat

Cerakote Piston Coat is a ceramic thin film thermal barrier coating designed to be applied on the top of pistons, valves, and the combustion chamber on a cylinder head. It is suitable for both ferrous and non-ferrous metals. 








Ceramic coating pistons can assist higher fuel burning efficiency and reduce carbon accumulation, which in turn makes detonation more effective. Cerakote Piston coat helps keep heat in the combustion chamber and the cylinder head cooler. In doing so, you get the heat out of the cylinder head into the exhaust, thus yielding higher horsepower and increased engine longevity.

Cerakote Micro Slick

Cerakote Micro Slick is a thin film coating used to assist with friction areas and shedding of oil. It is used to reduce friction on a variety of internal engine components such as piston skirts, valve stems, cams, cranks, and the underside of valve covers.
