Ceramic Coatings are not just a visual modification to your beloved vehicle, they are functional too. But what exactly are the advantages of getting a ceramic coating? Is it the heat resistance, the durability, the fact that they are less likely to corrode or wear out? Below is our list of reasons to get your engine parts coated at AlloyKSA:
PREVENT CORROSION AND DISCOLORATION
A ceramic coating is extremely durable and can handle a lot of abuse. It’s not likely to be affected by the engine and exhaust’s corrosive materials that usually discolor and shorten the lifespan of un-coated metals.
IMPROVE HEAT TOLERANCE
Most of your engine’s heat is from the exhaust, specifically the headers. Our ceramic coatings can withstand temperatures of over 2,000°F.
PROTECT OTHER PARTS
Heat can build up around the engine and exhaust, which can decrease the overall lifespan of nearby parts. This is especially important with modern vehicles in hot countries where their plastics and electronics are vulnerable to heat exposure.
The coating doesn’t just keep the outside of an exhaust cooler, it also keeps the inside of the exhaust hot. Hot gas inside the exhaust travels faster out of the pipes allowing the engine to “breathe out” quicker. In addition, the cooler engine bay means colder air is drawn in through the intake so the combustion inside the engine is more efficient as cold air is denser and has more oxygen. Basically, your engine will breathe better and perform better.
ADD VISUAL APPEAL
Finally, the last great thing about a ceramic coating is a fresh new look for your engine and/or exhaust.
