  • Heat Tolerance of Powder

    I am getting ready to PC some heat shields that fit around an Exhaust pipe. I do not think they will get all that hot but am I getting worried for nothing? Or will it get hot enough to melt the PC?

    This is a Exhaust pipe crossover Heat Shield

        I PC'd a heat shield on a 2003 Civic in Candy purple about 3 weeks ago. So far it has had no effect on the powder. Even though these cars are equipped with a factory header.

        NOTE: I am an automotive technician, and can tell you that the manifolds on these cars easily reach 800 deg. F on a summer day, especially someone with a heavy foot! I think the air gap between the shield and manifold help disipate the heat well.

        I am very impressed with the durability of powder.
