High temperature ceramic coatings sometimes referred to as exhaust coatings or high heat coatings because of their many applications. High temp coatings are designed to prevent corrosion of many industrial components, like kilns, exhaust systems, and engine components.
Corrosion occurs when essential properties break down due to exposure to moisture in the air. ITC 100 HT Ceramic coatings can withstand extremely high temperatures so that it can increase the durability of the product it's applied to. Another ITC 100 application is that it provides thermal insulation to exhaust systems, kilns, and the like. The high temp ceramic coating process has an excellent adhesion and is abrasion resistant.
Where can I use high temperature ceramic coatings?
ITC 100 applications are plentiful. High temp coatings are recommended for use on elements that are exposed to extremely high temperatures. These ITC HT Ceramic coatings can be used on carbon steel, stainless steel, cast iron, aluminum, or chrome. The coatings are ideal for components that are exposed to extreme temperatures. In your car, you can use them on your exhaust pipes, exhaust headers, manifolds, intakes, brackets, and turbo housings. Kilns can fire temperatures from 1,800 degrees Fahrenheit up to 2,400 degrees Fahrenheit, so these coatings work well for kilns too.
Why should I use high temp coatings for my car?
Well, high temp ceramic coatings will greatly increase your engine's performance, to the point where you will certainly notice a difference. If you coat your piston tops with high temperature ceramic coatings, they will have a layer of thermal protection on them, helping them last longer as they are more able to resist the heat from the engine. They also last longer because high temp coatings reduce thermal fatigue, reduce detonation, and high corrosion. The parts will cool off more quickly when you shut the engine off too, so making adjustments becomes easier.
High temperature ceramic coatings should meet the following criteria:
- They should provide adequate environmental resistance
- They should be chemically and mechanically compatible with the substrate
- They should be applicable
