Cerakote: What is it? Does it work for your project?

Cerakote® is a ceramic based finish that can be applied to metals, plastics, polymers and wood. Cerakote ceramic coating enhances several physical performance properties including abrasion/wear resistance, corrosion resistance, chemical resistance, impact strength, and hardness.

Cerakote works well for exhaust and engine parts.  It is extremely heat resistant and has been rated safe up to a 900 degrees Fahrenheit base metal temperature and 2000 degrees Fahrenheit exhaust gas temperature.

Cerakote's Preparation Guide

C-Series Glacier - Extreme High-Temperature Coatings (air cure)

Note:  Preparation of the substrate is crucial for maximum adhesion and performance of this material.  The Cerakote vendor Re-Do Banshee uses takes care of the prep to ensure a quality finished coating. These are the required preparation steps:

1. Degrease parts to remove any oils or contaminants from the substrate with either a degreasing chemical (acetone, brake parts cleaner, tert-Butyl acetate, or Simple Green®) and/or by heating the substrate to temperatures high enough to remove contaminants. From this point on, it is critical to avoid touching the parts with your bare hands. Use powder-free or Nitrile gloves to handle the parts.

2. Plug/mask off any areas that you do not want to be coated. Improper masking on certain mechanical parts may cause tolerance or functionality issues.

3. A sand-blasted profile must be applied to the substrate to remove any rust, scale, or other coatings. This is also required to ensure maximum coating adhesion. For best results, blast at 80 – 100 PSI using an 80 – 100 mesh dry grit material such as aluminum oxide or garnet sand. Glass beads are not recommended as they are not aggressive enough to produce an adequate blast profile.

4. Fixture parts to allow for the best view and application access, this can be done by using support wires or hooks. Make sure to place parts in such a way that they will not bump into each other.

5. We recommend but do not require that the metal parts are placed in an oven at 300ºF (148°C) for approximately 30 minutes. This will evaporate any surface moisture or solvents from degreasing, while also drawing out any possible trapped oils or contaminants. Parts will have to be re-prepped (degrease, gas-out, sandblast) if there are any indications of contaminates.
