HEAT MANAGEMENT CERAMIC COATINGS
JET-HOT Sterling: As the name implies JET-HOT Sterling contains silver powder. This metal gives JET-HOT Sterling an improved shine without compromising on corrosion protection. Sterling shines with the best look yet in high-temp, high tech coatings. JET-HOT® Sterling™ provides lasting beauty. Its appearance shares the brilliance of chrome and the subtly of nickel. Other metallic-ceramic coatings look dull in comparison. The RMS numbers (a measure of smoothness) demonstrate how far JET-HOT has jumped ahead of other coatings. With the addition of silver powder to our exclusive formula, we have beautified our coatings by a factor of six on the RMS scale while improving performance.
JET-HOT Hi-Lustre has chrome like highly polished aluminium appearance and JET-HOT silver has satin appearance and both from the Metallic Ceramic family of coatings. Corrosion Resistance as tested in Accelerated Salt Spray tests have proven that JET-HOT last over 5 times longer than other Metallic Ceramics, more than 14 times longer than Chrome, and over 140 times longer than HI-TEMP paints. HI-TEMP Fatigue Resistance test have shown after 10-million stress cycles over 300 hours at 538c (1000F), that uncoated 403 stainless steel had a fatigue strength of 56,000 psi and JET- HOT
This coating when applied to exhaust headers or manifolds acts like a thermal barrier and keeps the heat in side the headers, reducing under bonnet temperatures. Independent test conducted at Daytona Speedway showed how JET-HOT reduces under bonnet temperature. Comparative temperature readings were taken immediately after ten laps, run at between 6900 and 7500 RPM, on an engine idle at 2000 RPM with an exhaust tempt of 454c (850F). The test show that temperature of uncoated headers 1 inch from the port was 399c (750F), 2 inch above the header 121c (250F) and 1 inch above the floor pan 82c (180F), while JET-HOT coated headers were at a low 204c (400F) 1 inch from the port, 110c (230F) 2 inches above the header and 49c (120F) 1 inch above the floor pan.
Another unique feature is JET-HOT’s ‘self-repair’ quality, the coating continues to provide protection even when scribed to the base metal by ‘sacrificing’ itself to the substrate. Because the coating is electrochemically active, you can obtain OHM readings. Dissimilar metals generate an electrical current. In this case, one metal behaves as an anode and the other as a cathode, like a battery. The anode reacts with the media, or environment it is exposed to, and it’s self sacrifices, creating a soluble chemical compound that keeps forming and provides galvanic protection.
JET-HOT Coating can not be penetrated by Petrol, Brake fluid, Oils or Antifreeze. The coating provide protection against Rust or Oxidization of metal surfaces from normal to extreme temperature environments up to 704c (1300F) High Alkaline compounds will dissolve the coating
