  • high temp- how high? - will it burn?

    Have a customer that is concerned with the high temp. He had a bad experience before with powdercoating on a automotive header catching fire.

    He was not sure if it was high temp.

    Is the high temp powder just for things that get warm? Or can you use it on something such as a snomobile, motorcycle, automotive exhaust manifold. I have only done mufflers with it so far.

    Thanks

    my opinion is if doing exhaust, especially headers, you should be using techline coating. others may have had good luck with the high temp powder and will chime in i personally have not used high temp powder yet.
    when in doubt polish it out/ why replace it when you can refinish it

      The high temp has worked GREAT on the two mufflers I did. GREAT.

      But, I am not sure about the real high temps that an exhaust manifold will see.

      What is techline?

          The techline is more a paint than a powder coating though, right?
