Automotive Alloys Whitepaper

High performance alloys improve engine performance when used to make crucial parts such as piston rings, valve guides and valve seats. For more than 30 years, Materion has been supplying alloys to the racing industry, but no data quantifying the benefits of these materials have been made widely available -- until now.

Commissioned by Materion, GE Precision Engineering Ltd. researched available material options, then performed computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulations and single cylinder engine dynamometer testing.

In this whitepaper, you will:

  • learn about maximizing BMEP
  • discover key factors for selecting materials
  • gain insights from heat transfer analysis

If you have questions about the research, or would like to learn more about the range of high performance alloys made by Materion, please email
