Benefits of High-Temperature Ceramic Coatings

High-temperature ceramic coating is also known as header, exhaust, and high-heat coating. It can typically withstand temperatures as high as 1200 degrees Fahrenheit, and some variations can even withstand temperatures higher than 1600 degrees Fahrenheit. High-treatment ceramic coating, such as the products we use here at Crest Coating, offer an excellent solution for preventing deterioration and corrosion in extreme environments. Ceramic coatings are thin-film coatings that offer benefits of abrasion-resistance, corrosion & rust resistances, and are very durable against chipping. 

Keep on reading to discover all the benefits that this type of coating has to offer.


High-temperature ceramic coating is worth consideration because it protects the underlying metals within exhaust systems from corrosion and rust. The heat from the engine, oil, gas, and road salts all can damage components and result in exhaust failure. Using ceramic coating improves heat resistance and makes parts more durable.

Leaked heat can also damage other parts and result in costly repairs. The ceramic coating protects other electronic and plastic parts and ensures that the heat does not damage them.

Ensures Longevity

Longevity is one of the main reasons ceramic coatings are so popular. High-temperature ceramic coatings reduce exposure to the hot-cool cycle by reducing thermal cycle surface temperatures. As a result, this keeps the system running more efficiently & promotes the longevity of plastic & rubber inside the engine compartment, such as hoses, fittings, and wiring harnesses.

Improves Performance and Efficiency

High-temperature ceramic coatings can reduce heat-soak . This doesn’t just increase durability and protect parts but also helps the engine maintain consistent power efficiency as it heats up. Ceramic coatings act as thermal barriers, they lower the average temperature of the engine and ensure the car can maintain power when pushed to its limits.

In addition to improving the efficiency of the engine, this also reduces emissions by making the catalytic converter more effective. Overall, high-temperature ceramic coatings not only increase horsepower, but also the overall performance of the system.

Helps with Aesthetics

High-temperature ceramic coatings can provide luster, a pop of color, and a smooth, consistent finish. Give your system a completely custom look and add visual appeal by choosing between semi-gloss, high-gloss, satin, and even metallic finishes. The coatings are also available in a variety of colors and don’t fade or crack over time, making this the perfect way to add some flair to your car.
