Ceramic & Powder Coatings

Ceramic Coatings, by nature of their materials, provide a thermal barrier which stands above all other thermal barrier coatings currently being used on the market. Ceramic Coatings will move heat away, reducing heat soak, detonation, power loss and increasing the effective oxidation of fuel. When ceramic coatings are polished they provide a highly reflective surface that further aids in improved flame travel. Unlike some ceramic coatings, ours is not subject to cracking and flaking, which can lead to extensive engine damage. In fact, our ceramic coatings will actually strengthen the coated part. The cured area or “Cermet” provides a barrier of material that can withstand far more heat than normal.

Cerama-Chrome: This metallic ceramic coating is extremely popular on any engine components where a high luster finish and durable surface are desired. The high temperature characteristics of our ceramic base have been combined with aluminum frits to create a coating that can withstand metal temperatures in excess of 1200 degrees Fahrenheit. Cerama-Chrome is a unique coating that may be applied to a variety of surfaces and metals or any metal part that can withstand over 500 degrees curing temperature. Cerama-Chrome polishes to a high luster, chrome like appearance that will never rust and creates an effective hard protective coating for your parts.

Hi-Temp Satin coatings are our most advanced thermal coatings available. Generally used for exhaust pieces such as headers, downpipes, midpipes, catbacks and so on, they provide a very durable ceramic reinforced coating available in a variety of colors. When properly applied it becomes and exteremly effective thermal barrier coating, increasing performance, while extending component life. Our Satin Coatings have been tested to exceed over 3600 degrees Fahrenheit without any damage such as lifting, cracking or flaking. Unlike conventual header wraps, it does not hold in potentially damaging heat and moisture around the part. Rather the coating reduces the surface temperatures, extending the life of the coated component. Another advantage to our coating is a very effective corrosion inhibiting film is formed that protects the part against oxidation and imparts excellent chemical resistance that further extends part life while enhancing its appearance.

Powder Coating is a type of coating that is applied as a free-flowing, dry powder. The main difference between a conventional liquid paint and a powder coating is that the powder coating does not require a solvent to keep the binder and filler parts in a liquid suspension form. The coating is applied electrostatically and is then cured under heat to allow it to flow and form a “skin.” It is used to create a hard finish that is tougher than conventional paint.
