Ceramic Coatings

Ceramic coatings are recommended for use on parts that are exposed to extremely high temperatures such as headers or exhaust pipes, often referred to as exhaust coating, header coating or high heat coating.

  • Increases Part Longevity
  • Reduces Friction
  • Produces More Usable Power
  • Protects From Thermal Fatigue


Our vibratory polishing equipment ensures consistent, high polish over the entire surface of your part. The coating is applied to the outside of the part. This durable ceramic coating runs between 2 and 4 mils thick and provides a hard finish which is resistant to rust and chipping. Ceramic coating can be applied over chrome, aluminum, carbon steel, stainless steel or cast iron.

Exhaust options include Cermakrome Silver and High Heat Black. Temperature Extremes Ceramic Coating is ideal for parts exposed to extreme temperatures (1,400°F) such as headers, manifolds, turbo housings, intakes and brackets.

Polished CermaKrome is a very popular metallic ceramic exhaust coating, CermaKrome has an appealing high-luster chrome look. It provides an extremely hard finish which is not susceptible to rust or chipping and is is able to withstand temperatures up to 1,400°F. CermaKrome has been used in place of chrome applications in such items as A-Arms, intakes, brackets, etc.

Black Satin is Tolerant of high temperature exposure, Black Satin has been tested at temperatures over 1,100°F without any lifting or cracking. Black Satin does not hold potentially damaging heat around the part. Surface temperatures are actually reduced, lowering thermal fatigue in the part which in turn, extends the life of the exhaust piece. Temperatures under the hood are reduced which helps provide a cooler running engine part.
