    Anyone here used this stuff


    The ability to be able to touch an exhaust who's internal temp is 150C
    without burning seems amazing to me :)

    Particularly when in the detail it says:
    Significantly lower exhaust temperatures - surface temperatures reduce by

    Still sounds good though

    Air plasma applied zirconia based thermal barriers have been used for ages
    on gas turbine components but usually to keep the heat on the ceramic side.

    In this case the ceramic's low thermal conductivity means that it radiates
    heat from the surface faster than it can be conducted through from the
    metallic substrate. Hence it will maintain a thermal gradient and the inside
    remains hotter than the outside. A neat use of an existing technology.
