Application Tips

For the best results, manifold should be removed, abrasive-blasted, and wiped down with PRE Painting Prep (10041Z) before applying. If you wish to apply Calyx while the manifolds remain installed on the engine, use a wire brush to remove surface rust and dirt, then wipe down with PRE. Apply Calyx with a rag or toothbrush, and work it into the pores of the metal. For a buffed appearance, use a fingernail brush.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful exhaust manifolds Covers very easy ! A little goes a long way!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Calyx Exhaust Manifold Product. The Calyx Manifold Coating is a really good product. Very easy to apply. The result is the exhaust manifold appearing brand new with a grayish "pig iron" look. What is also great is the ease of touching up with the product. With high temperature paint, one must remove the exhaust manifolds to repaint them, not so with the Calyx product. Finally, the aroma of the Calyx product is quite surprisingly nice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly recommended! Manifolds look like knew. I blasted them first and rubbed the product in with a toothbrush. It hardly took any product, I'm trying this on other bare metal parts next.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from very pleased I had seen this product used by my father on a set of exhaust manifolds and thought I would give it a try. I used it to freshen the appearance of my master cylinder. Worked great & will touch up very easily if needed.

I've had my Calyx for a couple years. When I went to use it I found that it had gotten hard and very hard to apply. Is there a way to re-soften the contents?

Asked by: Shortbed57
A small amount of water can soften this product up again.

Does this product need heat for curing, and/or can it be used on alternators, brake master cylinders, etc?

Asked by: Datsun240z
This product is a temporary coating that will not require heat to cure since it is a rub on revitalizer that could be used on master cylinders etc.

Will this only work on cast iron or will it work on an engine metal (aluminum intake)

Asked by: Todd W
This product works the best on Cast iron manifolds. It could be used on aluminum but may look dark on it.

Is the  "Pre" required?  What happens if you don't use it?  Is there a cheaper alternative?

Asked by: wutdhec
The surface needs to be properly cleaned & de-greased before applying the coating to prevent any adhesion issues. You can also use a standard lacquer thinner for this as well...
