Ceramic coatings (also known as Thermal barrier coatings) do not reduce heat. They do increase tolerance (of a coated part) to heat, and increase the life of the parts exposed to a high heat environment.
I used to work with a company that did these coatings on gas turbine engines and spent part of my time in the metallographic lab examining samples. The difference between a coated part and an uncoated part coming in for repair was very apparent.

I was wondering would it be a good idea to put a ceramic coating the compressor hosuing on our turbos? just trying to think of differant ideas to reduce the heat in our engines. thanks for any replies in advance.
