Comparative lifecycle assessment of the magnesium coatings in relation to aluminium to use in pistons

TEKNIKER has evaluated and compared the environmental lifecycle analysis of the magnesium coated (Keronite and PAPVD) in relation to aluminium to apply to pistons. The coated magnesium reduces the environmental impact of the aluminium pistons and Keronite coating give a bit lower environmental impact than the CrN coating. The environmental impact of the use is much higher than the environmental impact of the production process.
