We often get asked what are the benefits of high temperature ceramic coating for intake manifolds, headers and other parts of the exhaust system that generate excessive heat.
Using high temperature ceramic coating on the headers keeps the heat where you want it: inside the exhaust tubes. A ceramic coated header will reduce the heat in the engine bay and direct heat through the exhaust pipes which means…
Greater Engine Efficiency
Ceramic coatings help increase the speed and maintain the quality of exhaust gas flow. With an increase combustion chamber efficiency, fuel oxidizes more efficiently.
Coated headers means a smooth flow of exhaust which can lead to an increase in horsepower.
Longevity of exhaust system (& other parts)
Ceramic coatings help reduce the thermal cycle and reduce surface temperatures. By reducing exposure of these parts to a constant hot-cool cycle, you reduce the risk of metal parts weakening.
By keeping the heat in the pipes you lessen the risk of excess heat damaging other engine parts like plastic parts, wiring harnesses, and spark plug wires.
Better Durability & Protection
High temperature ceramic coating protects parts from road salts, oil and gas, and other corrosive chemicals. These chemicals can cause rust in a very short period of time which will eventually put holes in your exhaust parts.
Depending on the coating, part life increases from two (2) to ten (10) times what is normal.
One of the most common reasons our customers want their headers and exhausts ceramic coated? They want a beautiful, custom look that will really pop.
We use Cerakote High Temperture Exhaust coatings, the industry leader, to ensure the best finish.
Chromex appears like chrome, but provides all the protection of ceramic.
Reds, golds, titaniums and blacks can be used to make a uniform or more custom look while protecting your vehicle.
Typical Uses for High Temperature Ceramic Coating
For vehicle coatings, the typical uses of high temperature ceramic coating is headers, exhaust systems, manifolds (exhaust and intakes), valve covers.
Ceramic coatings offer excellent thermal barrier characteristics. This means reduced under hood temperatures, accelerated exhaust gas velocity and a longer life expectancy for the entire exhaust system.
