Profile: Exhaust polishing and ceramic coating
Description: Blue Sky Aviation - Ceramic Coating

Exhausts after polishing and ceramic coating


Blue Sky Aviation offers a ceramic coating service. The product we use is a truly amazing clear coating that is almost impregnable. Corrosion tests on aircraft aluminum have been done in the Great Salt Lake. Tests prove that it resists blowtorch heat (yes, blowtorch flame) above 2000°F. It is impervious to virtually any chemical. It's excellent for hardness, flexibility, impact and scratch resistance, adhesion, and corrosion protection. It is unbelievably slick.



Applied to a prop, this incredible film sheds bugs, pebbles, salt spray, and more, highly recommended on amphibious aircraft. On an exhaust, it seals the metal from corrosion and by refraction reduces heat transmission to cowling and elsewhere. On leading edges, bugs slide off. Over the entire plane, the slick surface fortifies the boundary layer and reduces drag.

Pricing for exhaust systems

Per linear foot of exhaust 4.5" and less in diameter is $12.57.
For cleaning a used exhaust, add $5.50 per linear foot.
We have a special polishing service available. The minimum charge is $110.00.

NOTE: All coating and curing is done below 150 F.



AIRCRAFT FINISHING SYSTEMS EVERSHIELD is a two-component, ceramic clearcoat/chemical treatment system designed for Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) to protect the substrate over which it is applied from corrosion and oxidation. EVERSHIELD which applied properly, will not yellow, chip, crack, or peel. If gouged or damaged, the finish will not experience creepage and is repairable. EVERSHIELD is designed to coat surfaces that require a durable, flexible, and solvent resistant thin coating that is heat tolerant. EVERSHIELD offers excellent coverage, durability, and corrosion protection as well as being a low VOC and EPA compliant coating. EVERSHIELD is applied clear and will dry clear.


Test results were compiled from 4 different sources. Tests were performed applying AFS EVERSHIELD on the following substrates: steel, aluminum, copper, and brass panels. The following test results were determined.


  • HARDNESS - Exceeds pencil harness test of 6H
  • IMPACT RESISTANCE - ASTM Standard D2749 with Gardener Variable Impact Tester with 16 mm diameter ball. Exceeds 1.8J and 180 inch pounds reverse and direct.
  • FLEXIBILITY – Bend through 180 around 1 " diameter mandrel bare side of specimen in contact with the mandrel. Temperature was 23 (+/-2) C. Bending time not to exceed 1 second. No cracking or peeling when examined with unaided eye.
  • ADHESION – CGSB Standard 31-GP-O Method 7.3. No removal of coating.
  • SOLVENT RESISTANCE – All panels passed 100 double rub with MEK, Acetone, and virgin lacquer.
  • WATER RESISTANCE – Half immerse test panel in distilled water at 20 - 25C (68-77F) for 21 days. Removed and wiped with clean lint free cloth. Allow product to dry for 7 hours (less than 50% humidity). No wrinkling or blistering.
  • ACCELERATED WEATHERING – 1000 hours in quv weatherometer per astm Standard C23. No film degradation or yellowing. Loss of Gloss after 500 hours was <6% for all panels. Loss of Gloss after 1000 hours QUV was <10% for all panels. QUV test does not include salt spray testing.
  • SALT SPRAY – Passed 500 hours test with no blistering, creepage, or film degradation. Test was performed on scribed aluminum panel with EverShield at 1/10th mil thickness.
  • HEAT TOLERANCE – Product was heated to 2000F with no softening, surface disintegration, wrinkling, blistering, or loss of adhesion.
  • PERFORMANCE AFTER ACCELERATED WEATHERING – Repeat test on impact resistance and adhesion on panels subjected to accelerated weathering. Impact Resistance – 100% of original value.
  • ADHESION – No removal of coating.
