Official Release:

Manufactured from 4032 aluminum alloy for high temperature strength and low noise, the pistons are dual coated with MAHLE’s dry lubricant Phosphate coating and a proprietary Gold skirt coating (GRAFAL) for reduced wear and drag.

Both the top and second ring lands are optimized for higher piston speeds and boosted pressure. For maximum durability, the top ring grooves are hard anodized to protect against micro-welding.
