“Having developed and supplied ceramic coatings to car manufacturers and motorsport teams for many years now, we are keen to extend our service to more motorcyclists,” explains Peter Whyman, sales and marketing director, in a release. “Our coatings have been proven to offer a highly effective thermal barrier, and offer a lasting, reliable solution to heat issues for all types of motorcycle.”
Zircotec recently tested its coatings on a Triumph Tiger 1050 bike. Once the ceramic coating has been applied at Zircotec’s factory, the rider conducted a three month trial, clocking up approximately 5,000 miles. Another thing worth mentioning is that the bike was kept outside under a cover.
The bike was ridden in the winter months, experiencing snow, cold wet conditions and warmer wet conditions. The ceramic coating reportedly never faltered and withstood the varying weather conditions without compromising on performance or suffering any blemishes.
It was predominantly used for commuting and work trips, often making long journeys, traveling on all types of roads throughout which the coating proved resilient enough not to produce any scratches or chips, even in those areas most exposed to the road. It wore particularly well in comparison to paint based coatings.
