ŠKODA AUTO introduces plasma-coated cylinder blocks

The new equipment in Mladá Boleslav applies a powder mixture of aluminium, steel, carbon, manganese, silicon and other elements to the cylinder walls at 15,000° Celsius. The coating reduces internal friction compared to conventional cylinder liners and increases the efficiency of 1.0 TSI EVO petrol engines.
