CRP Technology Named Reseller of Zircotec Composite Coatings

September 8, 2010

Increasing demand for high-quality, durable coatings that protect composites against the effects of wear and abrasion has led CRP Technology to become the first reseller of Zircotec’s technologies. CRP will offer a range of Zircotec’s ceramic and metallic protective coatings for their own moldings and parts.

“Race car builders ordering composite components from CRP can now specify one of our coatings to be applied before they receive the part,” said Peter Whyman, Zircotec sales director. “This simplifies the ordering process and reduces additional shipping and handling.”

Zircotec’s ThermoHold coatings are used to solve heat and wear issues throughout a racing car. This year, driven partly by higher vehicle weight and the introduction of blown diffusers, the coatings are unlocking performance and durability gains for over half the F1 grid, notably for braking, chassis and aero parts. In the U.S., CRP will increase accessibility to teams in NASCAR, Grand-Am, Indycar, Drag, Sprint and Midget car racing.
