Jet Hot vs. Powder Coating...

This winter I am going to get my exhaust hacked from this guy. Afterwards he paints it with high temp paint, but I'd rather have a little more durability. I know power coating is tough, but someone also recommended Jet Hot coating... I also plan on doing my header pipes too. My preliminary, and admittedly limited, Googling has not yeilded much in the way of results. Thoughts?

Never heard of Jet Hot. My pegs and rearsets are holding up great with the PC

I think jet hot was where power coating orignated or at least in theory. Can beat powered coat tho. Or you could get it ceramic coated.

why?

Average drop of 33% in underhood temperature.

1-3% gain in HP from increased exhaust gas velocity and underhood temp drop.

Corrosion Protection: salt spray tested up to 5,000 hours.

Thermal Protection: extends life of exhaust components and other underhood parts by reducing thermal fatigue, heat soaking, and oxidation.

Appearance: enjoy the great look of chrome without the staining or bluing characteristics found with traditional chrome and stainless.

Rapid cool-down, excellent abrasion resistance, can be welded, and can be applied to used parts as well as new.

Inside and Out: all parts are coated inside as well as out

Extends the service life of parts as much as 3 times


powder coating just looks cool, and jet hot does all kinds of coatings, including ceramic

not many of you seem to know what Jet-Hot is! It must not be big with motorcycles I guess. They basically originated ceramic coating of parts. There is nothing similiar to jet hot ceramic coating when comparing it to powdercoating except maybe the process. the durability is completely different. Jet hot can take temps over 2000F depending on the process they did on your headers and whether you want the shiny cerama-chrome type of coating (very beautiful, can be polished, and dulls to a nice satin silver with heat and time). I can take pictures of my exhaust headers on my v8 Grand Cherokee, its headers were ceramic coated. I might be able to dig up an old picture too.

its an old camera phone pic, and an old girlfriend was modeling them, it gives you the idea.



What they look like after 2-3 years of use.




they never turn blue or rust unless the pipes are dented or scratched but the ceramic is very tough and durable.

honestly, not sure, i think it has something to do with its chemical make up that makes it that silvery color-its far from chrome though, if thats what you're wondering. just kind of a glossy silvery gray color

i think it would look cool on your bike-but its your money, ya know?

jet hot says you can get it done in any color, but i dont know if that applys to the ceramic coating too.

Schweet... I hear it's pretty cheap too. I dunno about how much cooler I can expect it to run realistically but something is better than nothing I guess!

the headers cool off faster with the ceramic coating and it helps to keep the heat INSIDE the header instead of transferring it to the metal and out to the air. hotter exhaust flows better too theoretically.

I really like the way ceramic coating looks on parts. Especially with how nice the factory headers are on some of the new race replica bikes they would look SO good if you sent them off for coating.

I don't really have enough knowledge to make an intelligent post in here but the ceramic looks really good imo.

thanks, it wasn't cheap! i had a bit of a shop hookup and Spintech did the coating, but still cost me $150 for that set of headers. my next set was done by Jet-Hot themselves and that ran $225 or $250 i forget. I did not notice a difference in shine or durability between either companies coatings.
