Heavily reduced under bonnet temperatures improve engine performance and longevity, reduce fuel use and a fantastic appearance are all attributable to HPC’s HP1 exhaust coating.
That’s right in recent years, HPC’s HP1 coatings have revolutionised the header/extractor industry to the point where anyone serious about performance invariably coats their headers.
So how does a seemingly simple coating achieve all of this?
The unique HPC’s HP1 process is designed to protect steel against corrosion and thermal fatigue/oxidisation created by cyclical temperatures. Performance is enhanced by reducing under bonnet temperatures, improved air density assists combustion chamber stabilisation, and increased gas velocity is achieve by the coating’s heat retention properties.
Applied to the inside and outside of a header HPC’s HP1 exhaust coating eliminates oxide scale, with improved laminar air flow a direct result. Improved performance directly relates to enhance fuel consumption, header life typically increases five fold, while the finely polished exterior adds a lustre otherwise unobtainable in an exhaust system.
Reducing under bonnet and undercarriage temperatures can significantly reduce heat soak in carburettors, fuel lines, master cylinders, accelerator and clutch cables as well as a myriad of other components, hence reduce component degration for longer life and more reliable running.
Understand that these are not merely claims, rather HPC researches, manufactures and certifies it’s coatings to meet specific requirements. HPC’s HP1 offers protection at temperatures of -190c to + 700c.
