Originally designed by NASA, ceramic coatings are fairly new to the consumer market. We offer high temperature, low friction, and aesthetic ceramic finishes made by Cerakote, the leading manufacturer of custom ceramic coatings.
High temperature ceramic coatings are good to about 2000 degrees F. These are ideal for exhaust manifolds, thermal barrier coatings for piston crowns and cylinder heads.
Low friction coatings are an incredible technology which drastically reduces friction between moving metal parts. Piston skirts are a good example of how low friction ceramic coatings are useful by reducing waste energy and heat generation inside performance engines.
Aesthetic ceramic coatings are applicable to pretty much any object. Gun components, intake manifolds, knife blades etc are all commonly coated.
