One type of high temp header paint we carry is such a high temp paint that it’s actually considered flameproof up to 2000ºF. Typically, if the heat resistant paint that you choose for your exhaust components can’t stand up to the temperatures generated, it will, at best, discolor, and at worst, flake off or even burn. Headers typically flow more exhaust gases than normal manifolds do. This causes more heat to be built up in them. Because of this, you’re going to need to choose the proper high temp exhaust paint for them. Don’t choose just any heat resistant paint, go with our VHT high temperature paint designed to work specifically for exhaust systems.
Standard, factory exhaust manifolds, on the other hand, in lower performance cars with larger engines, can sometimes get away with a regular high heat engine paint, if that high heat paint has enough characteristics of a good heat resistant paint engineered into it. Your Brandsport sales rep can help you choose the right high temp paint for the job at hand.
High temp exhaust paint isn’t the only type of heat resistant paint that Brandsport carries, though. We carry a whole line of high temp engine paint for all of your heat resistant paint needs. If you want to add a unique touch to your engine, try one of Brandsport’s metallic high temp engine paints. These high temperature paints come in a variety of colors to match the OEM paint that your engine came from the factory with, but they also have a metal flake in the paint to gives your engine that metallic look that the outside of the car might also have. These metallic flake high temperature paints are available in various colors.
Brandsport carries a lineup of over thirty colors, for all your high heat paint engine painting needs. Some examples of the colors of high temp engine paint that Brandsport carries are Ford Blue and Light Blue (For older and newer Fords) Pontiac Blue, GM Blue, as well as heat resistant paints for Chrysler products as well. Brandsport even carries high temp paints in Hemi and Chevy orange. For added color retention and long-life attributes, Brandsport also stocks high heat paint in clears and blacks. All of these paints are made by the leader in the industry, VHT.
Once you’ve got the block, heads, and headers/manifold painted, what about the pulleys? Brandsport carries a line of VHT high temp paint that will give your pulleys a customized anodized look. You can choose a high heat paint in anodized look that will set off the pulleys from the engine components, or you can choose an anodized look that will match the engine color. Properly applied, heat resistant paint will make your engine look like new. It’ll also be easier to keep clean and spot oil leaks. However, pure aesthetics isn’t the only reason to paint your engine components. The other reason is rust prevention. Every on of our high temperature paint products will also protect the outside of your engine from rusting.
Don’t forget, while you’ve got the engine out, why not dress up the old engine bay. No use getting the engine all pretty and leaving the rest of the engine compartment ugly.
