VHT flameproof ceramic paint
 
Has anyone used Vht flameproof ceramic coating rated at 2000 degrees?I just picked up an evo 3 manifold and wanted to get it coated,any one have experience with Vht flameproof ceramic paint

Great stuff!! I used it on my manifold, tubine housing, o2 housing, and downpipe. Very impressed with it. My buddy used it on his Turbo MR2 and had great results. Just be sure to follow the directions on the can very carefully! Bake and let cool as directed.

If you plan to spray smoothe surfaces, get the surface industrial beed
blasted, rather than only a light sand blast. Coating will hang on better.
Cheers !

Never used it personally, but heard its great.

I just did my entire exhaust side, from manifold to muffler, while installing my new setup... We'll see how it all holds up.

I just installed a evo3 manifold, 7cm turbine housing, and 2.5" O2 housing that i primed and painted with the VHT 2k* ceramic. Everything looked very nice before install. I even baked per instructions off the car and its wearing off quickly with less than 150miles. Don't waste your time.

What did you "prime" this with?

toofast82 04-10-2009 10:55 PM

VHT Flameproof primer 2000* which they recommend using on the ceramic coat directions. I do seem to notice a difference in underhood temps though.

Did you clean all of your surfaces properly and apply more then just on coat? I did 3 coats on mine and 1500 miles later it's still looking good and keeping temps down.

I used black on my Turbine Exhaust Housing, O2 Housing and 2G Manifold. Liked it.

Just don't touch it, it likes finger prints... as you can tell lol.

I used that stuff and it cooked off after a spirited drive. I had a pretty bad tune on it so Im sure that had something to do with it. The manifold was glowing red and turned white after it cooled down.

did you let it bake the full 30mins on the 3 different heat levels?:hmm:

Reject 05-27-2009 01:03 PM

Used it on my exhuast manifold when I replaced it. Used aircraft cleaner to prep it after doing a 300 grit rough up, 5 coats of VHT and >500 miles later it was baked off... Maybe it was user error... Just my personal experiance...

Torch1 05-27-2009 02:21 PM

used it on my exhaust manifold as well. i highly recommend it.

My1GLaser 05-27-2009 03:55 PM

I didn't have the best results doing the on car curing method. It is still "blackish" after a couple thousand miles, but not the best looking. I didn't prep and it was still rusted, so I guess not too bad overall.

However, I am doing my homemade O2 housing with it this weekend and plan on sandblasting and doing a few coats so I am sure it will turn out better.

Bud92gsx 05-27-2009 03:58 PM

I used this stuff too..I prepped vertty heavily..I would highly reccomend it...So would a couple other buddies of mine..The $9.00 a can is really worth it..

TurboTsiThatFly 05-29-2009 09:06 AM

have any of you guys used it on your heat shields? and if so did you let the heat shields bake for the full 30 mins? :talon: :hmm:

DougR 05-29-2009 12:02 PM

Kinda off topic, But I use the coating on everything..
Especially ATV pipes. If prepped properly as directed, it holds rather nice. Even when going from red hot to ice cold in seconds. As in being dunked in a mudhole or creek.

Last coating got it Really thick and then wrapped in header tape. Even sprayed the tape with high temp silicone paint, the stuff works GREAT! for reducing temps. Im no longer scared of burning my leg off from a uncoverd exhaust pipe.
