    Re: prevent blueing of chrome pipes

    CBC1 is a waterbased coating for piston, this is not the one you should have inside the pipes, for one, you wont even get it in there. If you go with Techline coatings you would want the TLHB as its made just for that application.

    Blast inside, cover all holes but one, poor the coating in, cover it fully, swirl the pipe around and poor the leftover out. Let dry fully before curing in the oven.

    Pick up the current issue of Hot Rod Deluxe magazine, there is an article about bluing headers in there.

I was thinking about this product: "CBC1 POWERKOTE (Cermet Coating Thermal barrier)." I do not have any powdercoating equipment or supplies. I would appreciate any suggestions. thanks, Scot
    2 things will help..... Coat the entire interior of the pipe with ceramic coating,.... and lay off the throttle. The biggest reason pipes "blue" is due to fast, hot temps..... usually most prevalent on hard excelleration and high revs. This is not new to you I'm sure, but these are the best two ways to prevent the "blueing".
