Black Diamond Teflon coating

Your engine compartment is a hostile environment for your carburetor. Carburetors can reach a peak under-hood temperature of between 180° to 200° F., and the chemicals in the fuel, oil and coolant can literally bake onto your carburetor and become corrosive over a period of time. While an unsightly looking carb won't usually affect performance, under-hood heat will. For years, racers and tuners have increased performance by lowering fuel temperature. Quick Fuel Technology (QFT) has introduced a highly durable Teflon coating that lowers fuel temperature by 6% to ensure maximum power and response. It is impact and scratch resistant, and also resists corrosion from under-hood chemicals and harsh environments found in marine applications and coastal regions.

The high performance Teflon coating is designed specifically for the unique requirements of carburetors and is available in a satin black finish. NitroPlate, an industry leader in all types of high temperature coatings, formulated and applies this coating on select SS-Series, Q-Series, and QFX-Series carburetors for QFT.

With the BLACK DIAMOND Series your carburetor will shed dirt and resist corrosion, offering a showroom fresh appearance and unique performance advantage for years.
