What is Ceramic Coating? engine

Ceramic Coating

Ceramic coating is a thermal barrier coating (TBC). The layered system is applied to metallic surfaces, such as gas turbine or engine parts operating at elevated temperatures. TBCs are primarily used to insulate metallic components from large and prolonged heat loads. These coatings are produced with thermally insulating materials which can sustain an appreciable temperature difference between the load bearing alloys and the coating surface.


Thermal barrier coatings serve two main functions:

  1. Lower the operating temperature of the structural metal and extend the life of components by reducing oxidation and thermal fatigue.
  2. Allow engines to run at higher temperatures, which improves efficiency.

Ideal for Headers

Designed to isolate extreme heat, ceramic coating headers provide many benefits including:

  • Reduction of Heat
  • Increased Flow
  • Corrosive Resistant Barrier
  • Colour Retention
  • Withstand temperatures of 1,300 to 2,000 Fahrenheit
  • Colours to Choose From

Excellent for Exhaust Systems

Ceramic coating is ideal for exhaust systems on race cars, motorcycles, jet skis, snowmobiles, boats, and many industrial applications. Perfection Powder Coatings doesn’t stop there. Get the same level of performance by using ceramic coating on your intake and exhaust manifold!
