Coated a set of headers with the Silver hi-temp powder and three months later I’m seeing flaking in spots. It’s minimal near the exhaust port side but pretty severe down by the collectors.
I media blasted the headers for prep and degreased with a heat cycle before powder application.
A couple questions….
1. What’s the best way to get the old powder off. Blasting or a Chemical remover ?
2. Has anyone had the flaking problem on headers and do you know what the cause was ?
3. Is the hi-temp powder not the best option for the headers and should I be applying a ceramic style coating ?
Any guidance would be much appreciated !!
