Like all of swain tech s coatings white lightning is a performance improving coating. Properly coated headers are thus much more durable than the thinner pipes of uncoated headers.

Ceramic coating inside of exhaust pipes. White lightning is applied much thicker than any of the cosmetic coatings. Once parts are coated and exposed to high exhaust temperatures the coating converts to a hard tough and impermeable ceramic barrier that protects and enhances the function of the system. A ceramic header coating also provides protection against the corrosive materials in the exhaust.
White lightning really is ceramic so the material is a superior insulating material. Normal paint or powder coat are not rated for this use. In fact ceramic exhaust coatings can reduce the surrounding heat to the rest of the engine by about 65.
Jet hot coatings are high performance ceramic coatings for exhaust headers side pipes manifolds intakes mufflers turbo housings and other parts. Ceramic is a highly durable substance that resists corrosion and stands up to a large amount of abuse. When you coat the external and internal surfaces of your exhaust system you ll improve their performance and longevity and possibly avoid costly repairs later.
The ceramic is good up to 2000 f. Black ceramic coating is a semi gloss black ceramic metallic coating applied at maldon shot blasting ceramic coatings are perfect for motorcycle exhaust pipes turbo exhaust and headers or high performance racing headers. Added some accent lights.
What makes white lightning the best performance exhaust coating. Ceramic coating is fantastic as a heat insulator and will reduce the surface temperature within the exhaust by up to a third. Since there is only one way out it allows for your exhaust.
This in turn will mean cooler intake temperatures and more power. The product is formulated to withstand temperatures up to 870 celsius and can reduce skin temps on pipes up to 35. Ceramic exhaust coatings insulate that heat throughout the exhaust system making sure it escapes through the exhaust pipe.
This technique has been adapted by many motorsport competitors and is commonly used on any part that will experience high temperatures. Make sure to inspect the pieces to make sure of complete coverage. Ceramic coating and exhaust wraps is a way to trap the heat within your exhaust pipes and thus causes it to quickly heat up and expand.
Eastwood s high temperature internal exhaust coating is formulated with specialized ceramic components and a tightly controlled particle sized aluminum pigment blend. When spraying start with the hard to reach areas and then make the big sweeping passes. Let dry for 30 minutes after application.
