Default Ceramic Coating --In a can?

Once again, Straitor and I were talking.. and of course we were talking about my porting. Apparently at one point they were selling the stuff in spray cans. Is this true? If so, where can I get it? I've googled this.. and I have come up empty handed. If I can get this done for $100 or less, I can do it.. otherwise I cannot afford it [already set aside $50 for high temp paint].

Never heard of anything like that. Only thing I have seen is a coating that can go on the inside of motorcycle exhaust pipes, and im not too sure what that does.

You also might want to look into using a veneer finish like they do on electric coils and the such. IM not sure how much better or worse this would be, however it could be a neat alternative and maybe more affordable and easier to get. just a thought

I dont know the specifics for ceramic coating but it seems that a spray can wouldnt work out that great. I doubt it would stay bound to the surface for very long.

I believe most of those products are more of a ceramic paint. Not the same heat transfer properties.
