    Re: Ceramic coatings on chrome, Yay or nay?

    I would look into carpro dlux. Think that cquk is also heat resistant. Gyeon Rim is heat resistant up to 800C so it would be a great option too. Dlux is also heat resistant over 800C. Which is around 1500F.

    Most ceramics are heat resistant, the temperatures do vary. 1000 degrees is the highest I've seen.

    Read that it was heat resistant up to 800C on both dlux and Gyeon Rim on their websites. And it's almost 1500F. Then how it's holds up to real world useage I don't know. And sio2 in it self is very heat resistant so it's on how they mix the coatings with other chemicals.

    If the ceramic coating is a genuine
    nano-Coating, then, IMO:

    It’s quite possible it may “attach itself” to the
    cracks/crevices that’s inherent to the Decorative
    Chrome/(Chromium) Plating that’s used for the
    “chroming” of many, many automotive wheels
    (see below picture).

    I've done chrome handles, bumpers and exhaust..
    For exhaust best to use would be max protect v3
    1200c

    Ceramic coatings on chrome, Yay or nay?

    Has anyone been able to confirm that a ceramic coating on hot chrome exhaust will work including hot headers? If so, which one?

    I use spray on coating on mine, specifically Carpro Hydro2 and it works great and makes the chrome look polished.

    I've been using GYEON's RIM on my exhaust and tips since last summer and it's held up very well.

I have coated chrome emblems/badges in the past with no issues but not sure how the coating would withstand the heat from the chrome exhaust and the transmission cover (I don't think it would be able to handle that but who knows). I would be using GTechniq CSL + EXO. If this is possible I would assume that I would use my chrome/metal polish first (I use Menzerna) and then wipe down with panel wipe followed by the coating?

    Has anyone attempted this before?

    My friend and local Harley Detailer Rob has been testing ceramic coatings on chrome for years. The only one he uses that he trusts will hold up is Pinnacle Black Label Wheel Coating.

    Now that's on decorative chrome. I do not know if he uses it on chrome exhaust surfaces? I can ask. To me anything that gets hot enough to turn chrome blue probably isn't going to last no matter what the brand.
