Black ceramic coating
Black ceramic coated products must be handed with care during assembly in order to prevent paint damages. Some fitting parts are tightened to prevent scratches on headers, so be careful in disengaging and please use the gloves supplied. During the first start-up could see smoke from the exhaust: please don’t worry, the ceramic coating is stabilizing and is becoming resistant to high temperature and weathers. Notice: Reaching very high temperature, the color of headers could have some black intensity variations.
