Ceramic Coatings

Stainless Headers Mfg. Inc. is a premier applicator of ceramic coatings. These coatings offer excellent thermal barrier characteristics, corrosion protection and enhance the components appearance. Our high temperature ceramic coatings come in a variety of colors and temperature ranges. These durable coatings help insulate adjacent components such as spark plug wires, rubber parts like engine mounts, starters and help reduce under hood temperatures.

The corrosion protection offered from ceramic coating greatly surpasses that of painted on options. The parts are prepped, coated, baked and polished in a controlled environment assuring a perfect finish every time. Ceramic coating takes the heat and retains the superior finish. Compared to a standard painted surface, a ceramic coated header can run up to 50% cooler surface temperature.
