CT-23 CoolKrome Ceramic Coating


The Calico CoolKrome coating is a low temperature cure ceramic coating. Ceramic coatings are designed to protect steel, stainless steel and non-metallic substrates. This coating is formulated to withstand temperatures of 1650°F without flaking from the substrate, however, coating will lose its luster and color if exposed above 1250°F. This coating is suited for high temperature components like exhaust systems and other components in close proximity to high temperatures. This coating maintains excellent adhesion properties through repeated thermal cycling while providing corrosion resistant characteristics to most and no reaction to repeated thermal shock.
