Special Projects Motor Sports has been offering this outstanding Metal Treatment service to all of our Hard Core Racing clients for years.
Recently, using the Extreme Shock load conditions generated in the Irish Tarmac Rally scene as a test bed for our GEAR-X EXTREME SERIES Final Drives and Close Ratio gear sets, where our competitors products were breaking and falling with painful regularity.
Our WPC Treated parts stood the test, and now GEAR-X is the product of choice by the
Top Irish Rally teams.
We use the WPC Metal Surface Treatment on all of our Special Projects Motor Sports Race Team Final Drives, Close ratio Gear sets, Connecting Rods, Pistons, Bearing Surfaces, to give up to 30% improved durability, reduced friction and increased surface density.
Our competitors have been pushing so called " Pro Series" or "Special Heat Treatment" or" Rem Polishing" or special "In House" Treatments as the answer to continuing breakages, but now they are starting to follow our lead, that’s fine by us … Just follow the leaders!
We are pleased to offer, and highly recommend this outstanding Metal Treatment service to all of our clients. CALL WITH THE DIMENSIONS OF THE PARTS YOU WANT TO HAVE TREATED. You may be pleasantly surprised at the low cost of this added insurance against component failure.
WPC is a proven process that has been utilized formany years in the racing and automotive industry.WPC is not a coating. it is a treatment that enhancesthe surface to reduce friction and strengthen engineparts.
WPC achieves this process by firing ultra fineparticles towards the surface of a product at very high speeds. The resulting thermal discharge permanently changes the surface, strengthening the ionic structure and creating a harder more durable final product.
Why was WPC Developed?
The WPC process was first developed for the 24 hour Le Mans race. It was then introduced into Cart and other open wheel racing. The initial WPC concept has taken off and expanded into all aspects of motor sports. WPC has not only been limited to use in circuit racing, it has also found a strong foothold in the Drag and Rally racing industry as well.
Why is WPC Superior?
The WPC process is unrivaled in treating engine parts and other surfaces that have contact pcints of friction. WPC is superior because it is not a coating;
it is a permanent surface treatment that reduces friction while strengthening the part. Irs unique micro·dimple formation pattern greatly reduces riction and is unmatched by conventional methods of surface treatment.
WPC has the capacity to treat carburised, nitrated and plated parts without noticeable dimensional changes, and, upcn completion of treatment, no further modifications are required of the parts. The strength and durability improvement on the surface after the WPC treatment is unsurpassed by any current methods.
Treatable products include steel, aluminum, titanium, copper and brass and soft surfaced bearings. WPC can treat any metallic item in an assembled state.
