The Rukse high performance polished aluminum ceramic coating (also called header coating, jet coat, or hot coat) is our brightest looking finish that we apply here in Utah, it will work on any steel or aluminum substrate that you want to have a shine or show quality look. It is similar in appearance to polished aluminum and the closest we can get to a chrome-like finish in a ceramic.
A special formula can withstand temperatures up to 1300°F and it won’t turn blue or gold like chrome, titanium, or stainless finishes. It is the perfect high performance ceramic coating for custom car builds, hot rods, and classic vehicles.
Coating Quick Facts:
Material: Polished Ceramic Metallic
Finish: Polished Aluminum Smooth
Heat Tolerance: 1300 Degrees Max
Maintenance Level: High, requires polishing and cleaning. Don’t let water dry on them.
Impact Resistance: High, withstands many abrasive substances.
Discoloration: Luster becomes dull at sustained temperatures over 1300 degrees.
Polished ceramic coating prevents thermal fatigue, rust, corrosion, oxidation, and heat buildup which ruin and weaken metal components. By preventing these damaging reactions you increase the life of your exhaust components. If you have headers or exhaust components or virtually any metal part we can apply our coating on it. This coating is the perfect high performance, header, or exhaust system ceramic coating.
Here are some pictures of headers that need to be coated. They have damage to the paint, exceeded temperature rating, or the chrome has discolored.
This coating lowers under hood temperatures helping prevent heat soak of parts and keep heat inside the exhaust pipe. By keeping heat in the pipe you reduce outer skin temperatures. Scavenging of heat efficiently through the pipe will reduce thermal tumbling and can increase performance. A proper flowing exhaust is key to achieving horsepower gains and a good ceramic high performance coating will do this. Of course we are partial to our header coatings and know they will outperform any other polished aluminum ceramic coating on the market.
This coating requires maintenance to keep the polished aluminum finish. It can be cleaned easily with a mild detergent and water. You can also use any non-abrasive aluminum polish to bring out the shine if it ever gets dull. Maintenance should be performed every few months to ensure that the coating lasts and functions properly. If you can’t easily access this part for maintenance you may want to consider another coating option like our bright silver, satin black, or high heat titanium.
This coating works great on headers, exhaust parts, and other parts that need to have a high quality “chrome like” finish that doesn’t experience sustained temperatures over 1300°F. It is NOT recommended for high performance, turbo, or extreme heat applications. This coating can be applied to almost any metal and on both new and used components.
