COATINGS


C-23 is our pvd-applied face coating reducing friction and wear while offering better hear transfer and is compatible with most cylinder materials and cylinder coatings.

C-69 is our pvd-applied face coating reducing friction and wear while offering better hear transfer and is compatible with most cylinder materials and cylinder coatings. Option on M2 Tool Steel Rings.

C-72 is our pvd-applied face coating specifically engineered for hard-coated cylinders it offers the same performance gains as C-23 with exceptional long term wear characteristics.

C-33 is out pvd-applied chrome nitride [CrN] face coating for those looking for the same characteristics as a chrome faced ring but without the seating problems commonly associated with chrome.

C-47 is our side coating used on the top and bottom ring flank offering exceptional ring to ring groove lubricity helping to eliminate micro welding. It is the standard side coating supplied with our Diamond Finish rings.

C-92 is our PVD face coating reducing friction and wear available on Gold Finish ring sets.

Total Seal coatings are available on Diamond Finish, TNT, AP, Gold Finish and M2 Tool Steel top rings.

    The Need to Measure Surface Roughness


    The reason we need to measure the surface finish is that purely relying on recommended stones, feeds and speeds may not achieve the desired results. The only way to be sure is to measure the surface using a profilometer.

    The most common surface roughness measurement used is Ra.

    Previous
    Menu
    Return to
    Main Page

    Ra Averages the Peak and Valley of Displacement


    Ra averages the peak and valley displacement from a mean line but provides no information about the height of the peaks and the depth of the valleys or the ability of the material to bear a load. Two different surfaces may have a similar Ra yet have two functionally different characteristics.

    Achieving a Proper Plateau


    Piston rings ride on oil just like bearings on a crankshaft. It is imperative that we create a cylinder wall finish that is a proper bearing surface. If this is not achieved it can result in excessive blow-by, oil control problems, and/or premature piston, ring and cylinder failure.

    The Numbers That Do Matter


    Rpk Rk Rvk. These are the measurements that need to be used when checking cylinder finish. These numbers allow us to determine if the cylinder has the ability to bear a load.

    Rpk - Reduced peak height measures the portion of the surfaces protruding peaks that will wear during initial loading.

    Rk - Core roughness depth is used to describe the portion of the surface that will support the majority of the load.

    Rvk - Reduced valley depth, (valleys projecting through the roughness core profile) is the oil retaining portion or the troughs machined into the cylinder surface.

    “Total Seal’s gapless ring technology is unsurpassed. Total Seal has improved our ring seal to the point of no oil degradation from excessive fuel getting by the rings under extreme cylinder pressure conditions and improved our pan vacuum by 3 inches. This results in more power and less maintenance on our turbo engines.”

    “Moran Racing Engines uses Total Seal Piston Rings exclusively in our customer’s engines because it has proven time and time again in our own racing program to be the winning combination.”

    “At ECR Engines we build engines for Nextel Cup, Nationwide and Craftsman Truck series. When you build 600 plus engines a year, it’s a tough balancing act between being a production facility and a custom engine shop at the same time. Total Seal is a great partner in the fact that they bring consistency from batch to batch on the production side while constantly pushing the envelope on the development side at the same time. I wouldn’t recommend anything but Total Seal rings in any engine!!!”

    "Total Seal Piston rings have been an integral part of the winning combination at Mark Burch Motorsports since its inception in 1994. Having our 360 engine program in house has enabled us to develop a winning combination with success from Little Rock to Knoxville and everything in between. Advancements in materials and manufacturing have provided us an advantage in both performance and reliability.

    Taking a brand new engine to I-80 Speedway earlier in the year was of no consequence and we parked the 1m sprint car in Victory Lane with Danny Lasoski behind the wheel. That engine combination would provide additional victories throughout the season with never so much as one trip to the dyno. Having 100% confidence in your piston rings allows you to do things like that. Not only has Total Seal provided us with a superior product, they have guided us in new directions with cylinder finishing so that our ring pack seals correctly, fast and lasts a long time. We have had our 360's go as many as 28 races without a rebuild and it is no problem for our 410's to go a dozen shows with no decrease in leakage or performance.

    The level of service provided by my sales representative, Kevin Studaker is top notch. Order fill time is usually the same day or next day which is incredible considering all of the different combinations and sizes out there. I highly recommend using Total Seal Piston Rings. It is the only ring package I will ever use."

    "We were one of the first teams to use Total Seal back when they first started in business. Over the last thirty years or so we have tried other brands that were supposed to be the new ring and have always gone back to Total Seal. The support and service we get is second to none. They have been a big part of our success in the engine build business. Thank you for all your help. "

    "I can name several reasons why we use Total Seal Rings and the success that we have experienced. But the single most comment we receive from our customers is they can't believe after 10-15 races on their engine the leak down is still 1-2%!! The guys I deal with Keith and Ed have been nothing short of awesome as anytime we have needed something they have always delivered!!"

    "Today's sprint car engines run above 9000 rpm in very "dirty" and demanding environments. Striving for longevity with minimum friction and maximum ring seal is a consistent challenge. We rely on Total Seal rings with confidence! In fact we often re-dyno engines returned for rebuild to find no power loss or crankcase vacuum reduction. Thanks again Total Seal!"

    "Esslinger Engineering has been using Total Seal rings for nearly two decades which has helped us to win numerous races and championships within that time. Using the highest quality of rings is crucial to any race engine. The better the ring; will pull more intake vacuum, will create more compression, will build hotter combustion, will produce more power.

    It’s obvious why we use Total Seal!"
