    Default Powder coat headers...

    Hey all. Was looking into powder coating my wet headers. Will the powder coat take the heat with the wet style headers? or do you have to go with ceramic coating?

    thanks !!!

    This meaning you should use a ceramic coat. Powder coating is actually a "plastic" and will melt under the temperatures seen in an exhaust system. Some of the powder coat companies offer ceramics as the curing process is similar, but you will want to check to see that they have a good post coating polishing process so that the final product is SHINY!

    there are hi temp powders that are good to 1200 degrees. Water manifolds do not get as hot as a normal exhaust manifold.

    oh yea.. and i own a powder coat business. I have powder coated hi temp white manifolds on my boat.
