US ARMY Top Fuel Dragster Utilizing Cerakote Ceramic Coatings
As the official coating applicator for the 7 professional Nitro Methane class teams of Don Schumacher Racing (as well as 40+ other teams), PRO-KOTE INDY recently switched the topcoat used on the top fuel and funny car headers to the Cerakote C-7600 Glacier Black. Although PRO-KOTE INDY uses an insulating coating for the inside of the pipes, they have found that the adhesion, longevity, and color stability of Cerakote C-7600 Glacier Black to be superior to products previously used.
PRO-KOTE INDY provides coating services for the vast majority of NHRA and IndyCar professional race teams. They have been testing the Cerakote C-7600 Glacier Black on these severe-duty applications for some time, and now are using C-7600 exclusively for the nitro-burners.
Recently, at “The Strip” race track in Las Vegas, 5-time World Champion Tony Schumacher in the US Army dragster won the Top Fuel class with a blistering 0-326.16 MPH in 3.797 seconds!....with Cerakote C-7600 Glacier Black on the headers!
Although it’s hard to make a case for performance gains on these 10,000 horsepower monsters, Pro-Kote Indy can say that this coating extends the useful life of the headers and flanges. One of the most important benefits is safety, as the much-quicker “cooldown” of the headers prevents the nasty burns crewmembers were previously experiencing.
