Industries Served


APS Materials is now offering NIC industries Cerakote™ line of thermal coatings. This includes dry film lubricants, thermal barrier coatings, heat dissipation coatings, and ceramic coatings.

Dry Film Coatings

Dry film lubricants coatings are designed to create a permanent lubricated surface to impede galling and the seizing of components. Like or dissimilar materials can benefit from the application of these materials. The suggested application processes allow the coating to become an intrinsic part of the component rather than a coating on the surface.

  • Piston Skirts
  • Cylinder Walls
  • Crankshafts & Camshafts
  • Bearings and Gears
  • Valve Stems & Rocket Pivots
  • Engine Block
  • Oil pan
  • Valve Covers

Thermal Barrier Coatings

Cerakote™ Thermal Barrier products significantly reduce heat transfer of components that operate at elevated temperatures. These coatings are used extensively in the automotive, commercial truck, heavy equipment and performance racing industries. Thermal barrier products increase performance, reduce maintenance cost and protect against corrosion .

Cerakote™ Thermal Barrier products can alter heat transfer by up to 15% depending on the specific application.

  • Piston Domes
  • Combustion Chambers
  • Valve Faces
  • Exhaust Systems and Components

Heat Dissipation Coatings

Heat dissipation coating: when applied to surfaces, Micro Dyne’s heat dissipation coatings transfer heat away from a substrate, resulting in improved efficiencies, performance and longevity of the coated parts. This ceramic bonded, thermal-conductive coating also helps to prevent corrosion and damage related to chemical and solvent attack. The Micro Dyne Artic Black and Transfer Black coating systems are used extensively in the transportation and electronics industries to reduce residual heat from components.

  • Radiators
  • Brake Drums
  • Oil Coolers
  • Differentials
  • Transmission Cases
  • Lighting Equipment
  • Heat Exchangers
  • Transmission Coolers
  • Air Conditioning Condensers

Chromex Coating : is a ceramic alternative to hard chrome. It resist temperatures up to 1700F, It is also chemically resistant to the most common automotive oils and solvents.

We offer these products for the following:

  • Automotive Performance
  • Industrial
  • Farm and garden
  • Motorcycle, Snowmobile
  • Marine
