Powder coating is a high-quality finish found on thousands of products you come in contact with each day. Powder coating protects the roughest, toughest machinery as well as the household items you depend on daily. It provides a more durable finish than liquid paints can offer, while still providing an attractive finish. Powder coated products are more resistant to diminished coating quality as a result of impact, moisture, chemicals, uv light, and other extreme weather conditions. In turn, this reduces the risk of scratches, chipping, abrasions, corrosion, fading, and other wear issues.
It's tough. It looks great. And it lasts a long, long time. In addition to being durable, powder coating is an attractive choice due to environmental advantages.
Cerakote is a ceramic based finish that can be applied to metals, plastics, polymers and wood. The unique formulation used for Cerakote ceramic coating enhances a number of physical performance properties including abrasion/wear resistance, corrosion resistance, chemical resistance, impact strength, and hardness. Each of these properties is rigorously tested to guarantee that Cerakote products remain at the forefront of the ceramic coatings market. Cerakote ceramic coatings utilize state-of-the-art technology to out-perform any competitive coating in both laboratory settings and real world applications.
Also known as abrasive blasting or sandblasting, is a surface finishing process that involves the use of a powered machine — typically an air compressor as well as a media blasting machine — to spray abrasive particles under high pressure against a surface. As the media particles strike the surface, they create a smoother and more even texture. The metal surface also gets cleaned and etched during this time for the coating process.
Non-abrasive way to removing existing coating without damaging the surface underneath.
This method is ideal for polished surfaces that have a coating over top. Chemical stripping will remove the existing coating and allow a new color to be reapplied while still maintaining the smooth polished finish underneath.
Wet blasting (vapor blasting) is a process for removing contaminants from a surface, or finishing a surface using pressurized water and abrasive blast media.
The biggest advantage of wet blasting is it produces a finer finish on a surface than traditional dry blasting. The water flushes out the abrasive, so there is no impregnation of the blasted surface. Any sediment or residual abrasive media is washed out. This leaves a cleaner surface.
High temperature ceramic coating is often referred to as an exhaust coating, header coating or high heat coating. High temperature coatings are designed to prevent corrosion of exhaust systems and engine components.
Turbo manifolds, headers, and exhaust housings are the most common applications for ceramic coatings.
