Help with ceramic piston and valve coatings

Has any one tried this coating. They also sell a baked in coating not sure if there is any difference.

Cerakote Coatings: C-186Q Piston Coat

I want to coat my piston tops and valve heads was thinking of sending them out and realized they used a product that can be used at home. Even the baked in coating only requires 300 degrees so a yardsale toaster oven can be used to bake it in the garage.

These coatings are used to provide a thermal barrier to the pistons, valves and combustion chambers in an effort to reduce wear and heat that can lead to detonation and preignition.

Let me know if you have tried it. I hear a lot of the engine builders out there have been using it for some time. But was thinking they used a more factory only process.
