Kashima Coating and Kashima Coating Services
Mountain bike and motorcycle lovers are always looking for the best coating for their bikes. An ideal coating not only absorbs shocks but also withstands high pressure. They found the solution in the unique Kashima coating which offers extended durability in extreme weather conditions and never exfoliates.
Kashima coating is a Japanese invention by Miyaki Company. The coating was born as a result of lubricating molybdenum disulphide to aluminium with assistance of an electrical current. This reaction led to a new, extremely liquid and smooth adonic coating. Compared to common coatings such as Teflon, graphite and tungsten disulfide, Kashima has improved lubrication and corrosion resistance. The main purpose of Kashima coating is providing a smoother ride by reducing friction.
Kashima Coating Benefits
Many mountain bikers already recognise the numerous benefits of Kashima coating on rough terrain. They are also praising the coating for its abrasion resistance and properties to keep the fork flawless and clean. Furthermore it:
- looks good
- is extremely solid
- makes any surface extremely smooth
- isolates shocks
- is durable
Regularly applying a new layer of coating to your mountain bike or motorcycle is a thing of the past. Once layer of Kashima is a durable solution with many benefits. Other coatings used in the automotive, motor and bicycle industry, such as TiNitride and DLC (Diamond Like Coating) were not specifically developed for aluminium surfaces and therefore have more disadvantages.
Experts say that Kashima coating currently is the best available coating for upper fork tubes and shock bodies. It is ideal when maximum performance is a requirement for the bicycle or motorcycle. The coating is also suitable for off-road vehicles such as snowmobiles and UTV’s.
