  • Ceramic Coating WORKS!

    As some of you all know I ceramic coated my Exhaust system on my Fiero. Well I got it running last weekend and got to drive it around a bit today and MAN waht a difference. The under lid Temps are down a ton! compared to even the old 4 cyl I had in there. Even after running for a min I touched the Exhaust Manifold and it did not burn my finger! it was hot but not sear your skin off hot! Thumbs Up and I recommened it for any Exhaust Parts!

    How did you end up polishing it? I have had a hard time getting ceramic coatings to shine.

            Worked with Techlines products for 1.5 years now, and yes, they do the job right

              This is the post I've been waiting for, I am going to do my snowmobile pipes in the satin black that way I can remove the heat shields and save 3.5 pounds of weight. I am glad to know that it actually keeps the temps down. I bought a can of the satin black from caswell about two months ago and am going to apply it this weekend. thanks

                        True, and a tip to you who use Satin Black then, spray it with a siliconespray after curing, stains of water and oil dont stick as much after the silicone get burned in. So what you see on the pic is plain satin black, with a layer of silicone...

                          did I do it right, I applied the black satin coating on my smowmobile pipes this weekend. I blasted the pipes using garnet as a blasting media. I then hung the parts and used my hvlp gun a put on a very this coat. I then baked the pipes at 450 degrees for 1 hour, this is all the hotter my oven gets. I took them out and let them cool down and everyting looks great. Does this stuff really work, it seems like a this coat of paint would not hold heat in. any vote of confidence would be nice this stuff is expensive. thanks

                          by the way what did you use as a silicone spray.

                              As i said, ive been using it long enough to know it really works. Use any siliconespray you can get, here in Sweden we dont have the same brands as you guys...
