Primarily reduce friction and wear when it comes to the Casidiam coating. It was originally pioneered years ago for use on Ti valves to make them actually wear at a normal rate. Similar technology is currently being put into production cars with the new Z06, which has Ti valves :-) Although cost prohibitive, they have taken nikasil cylinders and further casidiam coated the bores to further reduce friction. Saw it in action at the PRI show a few years back. Does that help?
