Every year at Race Retro we offer one lucky winner their exhaust coating for free. This year as the event went online we were unable to undertake our usual competition. So we’ve decided to host it online instead.
Take a look at a previous competition winner Ian’s incredible 1959 Maserati 750S that we got the pleasure of working with.
This is the entire finished exhaust coated with ‘Titanium’ Magnesium Zirconia Plasma Spray, ready to be re-installed in the car. The usual cost to plasma spray an exhaust system of this size is over £500.
How will the winner’s exhaust be coated?
By Plasma Spray thermal coating. Plasma Spraying is considered one of the more flexible thermal spraying techniques. It uses a DC electric arc in order to form a high temperature plasma gas. This in turn heats up the coating powder as it’s fed into the plasma jet. Inert gas is then fed into a torch which creates the velocity needed to bond the coating to the component. Plasma Spraying is especially good at producing coatings for materials with high melting points.
Plasma Spraying is also a very flexible process which can produce a wide range of coatings. Coatings produced are of better quality than flame or arc spraying. On the other hand the Plasma Spray gun itself deteriorates very quickly, making this a more expensive option than others.
