Is ceramic the same as powder coating?
No! This process is ceramic based and is designed for thermal management and friction management. Although it can be desorative in nature, it is primarily a functional coating designed to increase performance and durability of the part.
What parts should be treated?
Any part subject to friction, loss of lubricating film, heat damage, corrosion or abrasion. In addition, enhanced appearance is possible for parts such as headers, brackets, engine accessories and suspension pieces.
How much power will I gain?
This will depend upon many factors that will vary from application to application. testing has shown significant power increases on a dyno. Certain changes can be made in such areas such as tolerances, timing, jetting, and the lubricants used that will increase torque and H.P. and are only possible through the use of coatings. Horsepower gains of up to 40hp have been measured by independent dyno testing.
What is Powder Coating?
Powder coating is an advanced method of applying a decorative and protective finish to a wide range of materials and products that are used by both industries and consumers. The powder used for the process is a mixture of finely ground particles of pigment and resin, which is sprayed onto a surface to be coated. The charged powder particles adhere to the electrically grounded surfaces until heated and fused into a smooth coating in a curing oven. The result is a uniform, durable, high-quality, and attractive finish. Powder coating is the fastest-growing finishing technology in North America.
Thousands of products and parts are currently powder coated ranging from appliances, buildings and architecture, everyday products, as well as non metallic products. There are thousands of colors to choose from as well as textures.
