Thermal Dispersant

Thermal Dispersant is one of the most important, but totally neglected principals. Think about it, having the ability to transfer or control excessive operational temperature (heat). Everybody knows heat is a killer and is the ultimate factor found during metal fatigue, boiling fluids and destructive metal expansion; which correspondently introduces a multitude of other component catastrophic failures. Thermal dispersant coatings have the capability of transferring heat faster than a bare metal surface.We realized Thermal Dispersant coated engines, upon shut down, would momentarily maintain their registered operational temperature and then start to rapidly diminish. Usually, upon shut down, an uncoated engine will actually continue to increase in temperature.

Thermal dispersants create a chemical and corrosion resistant film that increases the ability of a coated part to radiate heat. TDC provides for more even distribution of heat over the coated surface and moves it rapidly away. TDC is blended with lubricating agents which aid in keeping a coated part clean. Dirt and debris cannot get a good grip and become easier to clean off. The appearance of coated parts depends on the surface texture, the coating will show a semi gloss appearance on machined surfaces and a satin appearance on rough textures. Both finishes are very eye appealing.
