TECH LINE makes a full range of power enhancing and protective coatings for internal engine parts. Some coatings are available to the “do-it-yourselfer” but most are being applied by hundreds of professional coating shops worldwide, giving everyone the opportunity to benefit from these advanced technologies.


C-LUBE DRY FILM CERAMIC LUBRICANT™
Combines the durability of a ceramic resin with the lubricity of a ceramic lubricant. 

C-Lube is a thermally cured Dry Film Lubricant designed to provide high pressure lubrication to surfaces subject to sliding, rotating or oscillating motion such as piston skirts and gears. The coating is also designed to aid in the more even transfer of heat, reducing hot spots. C-Lube applies in a thin film that allows the coating to be burnished to a film less than .0003” in thickness, allowing extremely tight clearances to be utilized. It may be pre-burnished prior to installation/assembly of a part or will burnish during operation. C-Lube contains special lubricating ceramic fillers increasing the wear resistance and lubricity of the coating. The low 350°F cure temperature allows for the coating to be used on a variety of substrates. C-Lube may be used on both wet and non wetted surfaces. C-Lube is a water based material that contains no hazardous solvents.
