At Autosport International 2023, stand E645, Wallwork Coatings will be highlighting the latest advances in micro-thin, ultra-hard coatings that improve race car performance by boosting the load bearing abilities of lighter alloys adding to the range of applications for light weight materials in critical engine, gear box, transmission, suspension and other parts. For their stand, mountune Racing are kindly loaning an engine display to illustrate where coatings will make a pivotal difference.
In addition, they will show the Wallwork Nitron range of single, multi-layer and duplex coatings that dramatically improve metal wear resistance and metal on metal lubricity. These significantly increase metal part performance, endurance and contribute to fuel efficiency. Better reliability under extreme load reduces the risks of ‘DNF’ results.
The company works extensively with leading F1 teams, applying coatings such as Nitron MC, Nitron DLC and Nitron Ti on key components such as pistons, camshafts and cam followers, valves, gearing, bearings, rockers and more, to modify wear behaviour and counter the effects of abrasion, fretting and surface fatigue.
Wallwork is also one of the UK’s largest heat treatment, plasma nitriding, vacuum carburising and vacuum brazing suppliers, with four centres throughout the UK. In addition to coatings, they are happy to advise on thermal processing techniques for metal hardening and bonding. This makes Wallwork the perfect one stop-shop for autosport engineers requiring a rapid 24/7 turnaround service, backed by the company’s own dedicated delivery and pick-up fleet of commercial vehicles.
Sales director, Simeon Collins explained, “We bring to F1 knowledge and expertise from our work with leading aerospace manufacturers such as Airbus, Rolls Royce and Goodrich. We operate world-class research and development laboratory facilities to create, deliver and validate coatings and thermal processes that increase load bearing, give long life resilience, lubricity and the sustained performance demanded by the extremes found in motorsport.”
