The Motor Vehicles industry represents one of the largest markets, but also one of the most challenging. Extending vehicle life beyond competitive warranty periods is not an industry goal. However, for a manufacturer that truly understands the breadth of performance enhancements made possible by Fused Armor, the competitive (and sub-licensing) advantages would be enormous. To name a few, Fused Armors thermal insulation capabilities mean a manufacturer could implement vehicle designs not subject to the many limitations imposed by exhaust heat considerations. In addition, Fused Armor clad metals can be substituted for more costly alloys. And Fused Armor can replace hot zinc dip (and its environmental concerns) as the preferred means of corrosion protection for vehicle bodies and frames.
Extends component protection by at least 5 lifetimes vs. epoxies & other industrial coatings. Virtually unaffected by acids, alkalis, salt and salt water (automotive & naval military testing). Colors do not fade.Reduces exhaust component surface temperatures from 1550°F (843°C) down to no more than 240°F (116°C). Operating range -- 1650°F/900°C (hottest exhaust) down to -321°F/-196°C (liquid nitrogen).Electrically insulating (no spark-through at 40,000 volts), no static sparking and fireproof.Allows use of less costly steels -- Fused Armor clad mild steels vs. costly stainless and alloys.Replacement for hot dip zinc protection.
