How to Apply Ceramic Coating

The main advantage of ceramic coating is its ability to withstand very high temperatures (up to 1,000 degrees Fahrenheit.) In addition, ceramic coating provides efficient heat transfer from the inside of the object it coats to the outside. Therefore, it serves as a better alternative to chrome painting on certain car parts. Ceramic coating is commonly applied to exhaust systems and engine blocks. Applying ceramic coating demands a considerable amount of skill and experience.

Things You'll Need

  • De-greasing chemical
  • Garnet, 100 to 200 mesh size
  • Oven
  • Rack
  • Protective gloves
  • Safety goggles
  • Ceramic coat
  • Gravity-fed spray gun
  • Steel wool
  • Vibratory polisher

Instructions

    • 1

      Clean the object to be coated with a de-greasing chemical to remove previous coatings, oils, grimes and rust. Remove slags, sharp edges and protrusions with a garnet equivalent to 100 to 120 mesh size.

    • 2

      Heat the object for thirty minutes in an oven turned up to 450 degrees Fahrenheit to remove the moisture and oil left on its surface.

    • 3

      Hang the object up on a rack and let it cool. Wear a pair of protective gloves and safety goggles.

    • 4

      Mix the ceramic coating product in a gravity-fed spray gun until all the solids in it are completely dissolved. Spray the ceramic containing product over the object by starting from its thickest surface.

    • 5

      Change to a smaller spray tip to spray inaccessible parts. Apply the coating twice for areas where you want a thicker (1.5mm to 2mm) coat.

    • 6

      Leave the coated object to dry in the air for 20 minutes. Heat for 20 minutes in an oven set at 175 degrees Fahrenheit. Increase oven temperature to 700 degrees Fahrenheit and leave the coated object to cure for 60 minutes.
