High performance exhaust system coatings

Exhaust manifold being prepared for ceramic coating

Ceramic coating applied to large manifold

We have developed a range of ultra high performance thermal barrier coatings that are specifically designed to prevent unwanted heat loss from engine exhaust system components. See our process video or read more about our ceramic coating process. More>

Exhaust coating options

Our proprietary ceramic based coatings can be applied to an exhaust manifold, exhaust header, turbocharger casing, exhaust system down pipes, hot engine components, tailpipes, finishers or tail-trims and any areas where heat is a problem. Coating options are:

Additionally (and as detailed above), we have developed a ceramic coating range specifically for use with tailpipes and have introduced a range of colour matching coatings for use with other engine compartment components (we have called this our Style RangeTM). 


Zircotec's exhaust coating material can be applied equally well to new & used exhaust system components, and to most metals & metal alloys, including:
  • All types of steel; inc. mild steel & stainless steel
  • Cast iron
  • Titanium; Nickel & chrome
  • Inconel and other high-temperature nickel alloys
  • Aluminium; Copper & brass
All of our ceramic coatings undergo rigorous product testing and are covered by our comprehensive Product Guarantee irrespective of whether the underlying system is new or used. In most cases our warranty period is 3-years even when we apply our coating to used systems (N.B. in the case of motorsport use and our Primary BlackTM coating the warranty period is limited to 1-year).
