rivestimento isolante


Explanation:
McGrawHill (Dizionario enciclopedico scientifico e tecnico, SECOND EDITION) for "wash coat" says "mano di pittura isolante", field: ING; definition a sealer consisting of very thin, semytransparent coat of paint.
My question: could the function of allumina in a catalytic converter be similar?
The Enciclopedia della Scienza e della Tecnologia De Agostini (Compact) under "marmitta catalitica" reads: "Il suo funzionamento si basa sull'azione dei catalizzatori depositati in strato sottile su supporti ceramici con struttura porosa. I gas di scarico, fatti passare attraverso questa struttura, entrano in contatto con il catalizzatore…". The illustration distingueshes between three elements: strato di catalizzatore, allumina di rivestimento, supporto ceramico.

Strato di ossido


Explanation:
Automobile engineering is not my cup of tea, therefore I am not sure about "strato di ossido"...all the same,
here is what I found out:

"WASHCOAT" (noun) "Oxide layer on the catalyst substrate which increases with the active surface area"

Source: Dictionary of Automobile Engineering - Peter Collin Publishing

Hope that helps!
