KING ENGINE BEARINGS SHOWCASING NEW DEVELOPED COATED RACE BEARINGS - pMaxKote™29-Dec-2016
King Engine Bearings will showcase its newly developed polymer coated bearings for race engines at Autosport International on 12-15 January 2017.
King and Engine Parts UK, world-class developer and manufacturer of high technology engine bearings for automobiles and other types of internal combustion engines, will be displaying the latest technology for engine bearings in Hall 9 on Stand E961.
The pMaxKote™ is a new approach to coated bearings. In contrast to today's coating material, King's pMaxKote™ is a non-sacrificial layer that has a proven superior wear resistance and protection against metal-to-metal contact, without changing the bearing’s original precision wall thickness dimension.
The new coated bearing material enables high-performance and durability resulting in maximizing performance and reliability for race engines, minimizing seizure. It contains ceramic nano-composite particles that function as a fourth layer which provides superior build protection and wear resistance. The coating also offers protection from the erosive effects of cavitation.
King Engine Bearings is recognised for producing the highest quality engine bearings available in the market today. The King line includes OEM replacement rod, main, cam bearings, and thrust washers and its special range of racing bearings.
Ron Sledge, King’s Performance & Technical Manager said: "We are looking forward to showcasing the latest engine bearing technology to businesses and clients at Autosport International. The Intensive research and testing of different polymer based coating materials lead to the development of this ideal coating formula for extreme race conditions.”
