    The thermal coatings look great, but they don’t reduce under bonnet heat as well as wrapping.

    My pipes are to close to each other to wrap them and would bind up quite a lot

     

    I was just wondering if there is a way I can apply it my self to get away from the freight cost or if it has to be applied with them high heat plasma spay guns they use

    It’s actually applied with normal Spray guns, the Prep is the most important part of the process, Wrapping while effective does reduce the lifespan of the pipes.

    Yeah ok so there are types of thermal barrier that are applied with a spray gun, I thought there was

     

    where can I get this from ??

    I take it there is a base/primer used?

     

    Is the prep work things like bead/sand blasting, acid dipping or other forms that I could actually do at home ??

    Blasted with Aluminium Oxide, Glass bead doesn’t work all that well, Andrew at Competition Coatings uses Techline coatings, not sure if you can buy them retail you might have to google it.

    As for doing it at home I don’t bother, buy the time I clean out the Beadblaster reload it with Aluminium then coat everything and hope it stays put so you can heat cycle it to cure it it’s just not worth the hassle.

    I was wondering why no one ever does it at home

     

    guess I’ll just send them to brisvagas when I finish them
