CP-Carrillo has advanced ring technology to the next level with PVD. This ring coating provides excellent wear, corrosion and scuff resistance. The PVD coating adds hardness and toughness to the ring while reducing friction. CP-Carrillo claims that this coating is better than traditional gas nitriding alone. These rings have a stronger top ring (1.2mm) that can withstand more cylinder pressure before the risk of fluttering. They are highly recommended for high horsepower applications thanks to friction/drag reduction against the cylinder. These rings are offered in a variety of bore sizes. MSRP is $39.00 per cylinder.
