Default Cermaic powder coating

I'm looking for ceramic powder to coat my manifolds. I have access to a ovan that can bake on the powder. Anyone know where I can buy this stuff. Different colors woudl be great.

Danthurs, use the stuff linked above. That'* my 'secret coating' from about 3 years ago. Search, and you'll find the test results.

Thanks, I found the site and was considering ordering it, but I wanted to find out how much. You think 8oz can is enough for both PEMs? A coworker suggested coating the inside as well. Is this a good idea, or just do the outside? This is the can I was going to order, is this the correct one?

The stuff that Will is talking about is the stuff that Bonneville92v688 linked. I used the 4oz of that stuff on my EM'* and I have enough leftover to do a second set. I don't know about the powder, but I do know the stuff I used is proven and highly recommended on this site over most other coatings.

I see, Was hopping for red. I'll keep that in mind, I way still go with the black if it'* that much better. Not like you can really see the manifolds anyways.

I've used the Black Satin twice now. Works great. You CAN brush it on, but I suggest spraying it like I did the second time. It'* far more effective than powder coating. The small can will be enough, and you don't have to thin it.

If you don't have the equipment, you can use the little glass jar and propellant can (touch-up sprayer) from Lowe'* or Home Depot. Most paint stores should also carry it. Don't do the inside. Just the outside. And remove it from the flanges (or mask before which is a better idea) before installing them. This stuff is VERY difficult to remove once it'* heat bonded. I baked mine ahead of time so they wouldn't scratch when I installed them.

In spite of my abuse, they have held up VERY well.
