Anyone using Cerakote? Comments?

For the expansion chambers on the 2-stroke. Good? Bad?

That shit is the bomb. There's a small job shop in Bethel VT that does Cerakote and has all the proper application equipment, bake oven, etc.

I had my GSA headers coated by Zircotec here in the UK, I got the Endurance Black Matt black ceramic coating, looks good.

Cerakote looks like a liquid based coating system, like the Cermakrome I had done on my car exhausts 10 years ago. Zircotec use plasma spraying
Zircotec process

Works great on firearms. I know that's not what the question was but product is very durable with high temps from a firearm.

We used Cerakote on the exhaust hatch interiors on a couple of the locomotive models built at MPI in Boise. Also used it for the control consoles. We applied without baking, so it took several days for curing, but the product handled the heat well and seems to be durable.

Also have a rifle that was coated and have no complaints.

My experience is limited to firearms. I will say its awesome.

Even on moving gun parts it holds up well, and is slick.

Ditto. Works great on guns but i plan to try it on my ATV header to cut down on the heat on my legs in the summer.
