The most important factor to consider is the purpose of the ceramic coating. Are you predominantly looking for heat management or an aesthetic upgrade? As the leader in heat management coatings, we offer a wide range of exhaust ceramic coatings with various thermal properties and applications.
If you’re looking for the best thermal barrier coating on the market, we recommend opting for Performance White™. Our ultra-high performance thermal barrier ceramic coating solution is commonly used across several levels of elite motorsports, and is suitable for applications as high as 1400°C.
When considering high-performance and looks combined, we would recommend our Performance Colours™ Range, as they can reduce surface temperatures by up to 33% and withstand up to 900°C, with 14 colours available.
If you’re looking for an affordable, entry-level exhaust ceramic coating, Primary Range™ is the one for you. Our Primary Range™ of coatings are suitable for applications up to 900°C and offers surface temperature reduction by up to 25%, available in a Black or Gunmetal Grey finish.
If you’re looking for a smoother finish, our Endurance Range™ would be the ideal option. Our Endurance Range™ is designed for motorbike specifications, providing a smoother, yet durable surface finish. It is suitable for applications up to 900°C and can reduce surface temperatures by up to 25%.
With the above ranges, our exhaust ceramic coating ranges can effectively mitigate heat issues for both cars and motorbikes. Visit our applications page to see where exactly the exhaust ceramic coatings can help improve engine performance and efficiency.
With such a wide range of exhaust coatings available on the market, not all coatings are made the same, and therefore their quality certainly would not be the same. Our ceramic coatings are applied via plasma-spray, which offers a robust finish that’s considered as a fit-and-forget ‘installation’.
We’ve seen several other exhaust coating options that claim to have the equivalent thermal barrier benefits our ceramic coatings possess, but by looking at their applications you’ll find that they clearly do not offer the same benefits. We are often compared to processes like hot arc wire thermal spray, powder coating, dip coating, etc. However, these processes do not provide the same thermal performance and durability. For more information on the application process of our exhaust ceramic coatings, you can read more on our process here.
Your exhaust system is constantly exposed to harsh conditions, including moisture or other contaminants, as well as extreme temperatures as mentioned before. When selecting an exhaust ceramic coating, it’s important for the coating to be durable under these conditions, which also depends on the application processes as mentioned above. Our exhaust ceramic coatings are designed to match the thermal expansion coefficient of exhaust systems, minimizing thermally induced stress, therefore reducing the risk of drastic failure. In addition, our exhaust ceramic coatings can protect the coated parts from corrosion. You can read more about how this works on our website.
It is vital to ensure that the ceramic coating you choose is compatible with the material of your exhaust system. Our exhaust ceramic coatings are suitable for applications on several metallic surfaces, including cast iron, aluminium, titanium, mild steel, inconel, and stainless steel. Furthermore, our proprietary plasma-sprayed ceramic coatings are also suitable for application onto carbon composite materials and some polymers. Compatibility ensures that your coating adheres properly to the substrate, providing the most effective performance and durability characteristics.
As you can see above, there’s several benefits of applying thermal barrier ceramic coatings to your exhaust system. It’s important to consider these factors to ensure you to get the most out of it. Feel free to contact us with any questions about our ceramic coating options.
