the most frequently asked questions
Can I apply any of these special coatings?
No,as the equipment required to prepare, apply and cure the various coatings is specially built for the Ceramic Coating Industry.

What parts can be coated?
Any part subject to friction, loss of lubricating film, heat damage, corrosion or abrasion. In addition, enhanced appearance is possible for parts such as headers, brackets and suspension pieces.

How much power will I gain?
This will depend upon many factors that will vary from application to application. Testing has shown significant power increases on a dyno. In addition certain changes can be made in such areas as tolerances, timing, jetting and the lubricants used, that will increase torque and Horse Power and are only possible through the use of the Competition Coatings. Horsepower gains of up to 40 hp have been measured in independent dyno testing.

How long will the coating last?
Depending on the coating, part life increase from two to ten times what the normal can be seen. The dry film lubricant may be burnished until they are no longer visible, however the active materials are bonded in to the "pores" of the part and continue to provide protection.

Will I see a temperature change?
Parts will run cooler. Engine oil and water temperatures have shown a reduction. On exhausts the radiated heat will be substantially reduced leading to a lower underbonnet temperature and less heat absorption by nearby parts and surfaces

What about clearances?
The dry film lubricant will burnish as they run until they are no longer visible. They are applied at a thickness ranging from .0005" to .0015". However before assembly the coating may be burnished back to less than .0002 with gentle buffing using "scotchbrite" or similar material. NO CHANGES need to be made to clearances due to the use of these coatings, though in many instances because of the reduced part temperatures and increased lubrication tighter clearances may be run.

What about machining and balancing
All machining work should be done BEFORE coating.    This page last modified Monday March 11, 2013 at 07:36:29 PM
