Strength, durability, longevity, toughness. These are all aspects that we want and need out of the pistons that go into a high performance engine. MAHLE Motorsport knows and embraces that which is why they continually innovate and advance the science and technology of the piston business. In this latest example of that the company has introduced a cutting edge ceramic thermal barrier coating for their famed PowerPak piston line.
The coating can be added to any PowerPak performance forged piston used in gasoline or diesel burning engines. The coating was developed by MAHLE engineers and has been employed in race engines for some time so this is a proven commodify that will continue to push the word of MAHLE to an even loftier place in the market.

MAHLE Motorsport Introduces Cutting Edge Ceramic Thermal Barrier Coating for PowerPak Pistons
Insulates crown from thermal shock; reduces heat transfer
Fletcher, NC, (July 29, 2019) – MAHLE Motorsport now offers a proprietary thermal barrier coating application for any PowerPak performance forged piston – gas or diesel. This ceramic-based thermal application greatly reduces heat transfer for improved performance and adds a layer of insulation to the piston crown to protect against thermal shock. For added protection and performance, this cutting edge thermal coating is particularly important for use on the crown to prevent hot spots.
Thermal Barrier Coating was developed by MAHLE Motorsport to create more protection for the piston crown as demands for piston and engine component performance have increased in multiple forms of motorsport. Designed primarily for improved engine efficiency in race engines that need increased torque and HP, MAHLE Motorsport’s thermal barrier coating can be ordered for any piston – single or PowerPak sets. The coating is available wherever MAHLE Motorsport pistons are sold.
