NitroPlate’s Satin Black finish is a high temperature ceramic material that is designed for customers who prefer a more stealth look. Perfect for headers and motorcycle exhaust pipes and heat shields, but also frequently selected for valve covers, intake manifolds and other aesthetic components.
NitroPlate’s Satin Black is capable of up to 1700 degrees F and is highly resistant to gasoline and all other common “under-hood” chemicals. If chip resistance is a concern; rest assured. This finish is very tough. 3rd party laboratory gravelometer testing to the ASTM D3170 specification yields a grade 10 rating (no chipping to base metal). Corrosion performance is outstanding as it is applied as a topcoat over our metallic/ceramic coating. This provides a combination of both sacrificial and barrier protection.
Care and Maintenance
As with all NitroPlate finishes; Satin Black is fully oven cured before it leaves our plant. There is no need to be concerned about any sort of break-in procedure. Clean with soap and water as needed. Stains can typically be removed with a good “mag and aluminum” type polish. Be aware that aggressive rubbing may tend to increase gloss.
NitroPlate Bright is a highly polished aluminum ceramic coating capable of withstanding 1300 degrees. It has excellent thermal properties. This cuts down on under hood heat, increases horsepower and helps in scavenging of the exhaust. Nitroplate Bright can also be used in areas such as intakes, rear end housings, control arms, and wheelie bars and steel wheels
