Abstract

The present disclosure relates to a method of preventing residues of non-combusted ED95 from depositing on surfaces of a turbocharger of a vehicle by coating the relevant surfaces with a coating having a reduced affinity for ED95 residues. The coating is a hydrophobic or super-hydrophobic ceramic coating. Turbocharger components coated with a hydrophobic or super-hydrophobic coating, such as the turbine shaft, bearing housing, turbine wheel and blades, are also disclosed.
