New products

New MAHLE HV385 1mm, 1mm, 2mm thinner rings for improved performance in all piston ring applications, from high performance to daily use.

MAHLE Motorsports is at it again, engineering top performance at the smallest detail. They have developed a new size for rings, in this case smaller is better. The 1mm, 1mm, 2mm sizing and all steel construction provide a high level of conformability resulting in unmatched ring seal, oil control, and exceptionally low coefficient of friction.

Starting with high strength carbon steel alloy, MAHLE’s patented HV385 thermal spray coating process is applied to the top rings using a high temperature, supersonic spray process, fueled by pure oxygen and RP1 jet fuel. The HV385 coating exhibits superior bonding and wear characteristics suitable for daily driver to high output power adder applications. The second rings are napier construction and the oil rings use the proven CP-20 design.
