Powder Coat Finish for Mufflers & Exhaust

Tuesday, December 15th, 2015


muffler1-150x150 Auto muffler coatingsThis specially engineered high temperature powder coating was developed to meet and exceed industry standards for highly corrosive environments. This product offers performance superior to other powder and liquid finishes on many different substrates. Rapid expansion and contraction is one of the hardest tests that a coating must withstand. Heating a coated part to 800°F and quenching in ice water stresses the metal surface and the coating. This corrosion resistant chemistry has excellent initial cure properties and creates an even tighter film at service temperatures.

  • Heat resistant up to 1200°F
  • 1000+ hours Salt Fog
  • Thermal shock resistant
  • Capable of passing a full battery of corrosion performance tests for automotive applications
  • Easy to apply
