In the demanding world of Original Equipment Manufacturing (OEM), Cerakote has emerged as a game-changer. As the global leader in thin-film automotive ceramic coatings, Cerakote is increasingly chosen by OEM, aftermarket, and custom shops for its exceptional performance and aesthetics. Let’s delve into why Cerakote stands out in the automotive industry and how it’s redefining standards for OEM coatings.
Unparalleled Heat Resistance
Cerakote’s ceramic-based coatings excel in high-temperature environments, enduring up to 1,800˚F. This remarkable heat tolerance makes it ideal for components like headers, manifolds, and exhaust systems, ensuring longevity and reliability where other coatings falter.
Robust Against Thermal Cycling and Shock
Beyond heat resistance, Cerakote coatings withstand thermal cycling and thermal shock. This resilience is critical for parts exposed to fluctuating temperatures, ensuring consistent protection without compromise.
Corrosion and Chemical Resistance
In an industry where corrosion is a perennial challenge, Cerakote offers a robust solution. Its resistance to corrosion and chemicals outperforms traditional coatings like paint, powder coating, and anodizing, especially in harsh environments like snow country.
Cerakote isn’t just about protection; it’s also about presentation. With a variety of colors and finishes, it allows for customization that aligns with brand aesthetics, giving products a distinct, high-end look and feel.
Aligning with modern eco-conscious values, Cerakote coatings are VOC compliant in all 50 states. This environmental friendliness is a significant advantage for manufacturers seeking to reduce their ecological footprint.
Cost-Effective and Easy to Apply
Cerakote’s single-coat, straight-to-substrate application process is not just cost-effective but also seamlessly integrates with existing production lines.
