Question where can I get brush on heat paint?

I have been looking everywhere for brush on heat paint in silver, and cannot find not only silver but any color. My headers were acid dipped and coated with a rough texture coating that I believe came from Eastwood. This stuff was supposed to never come off or rust but I have a little rust starting on the collectors and they are turning gray near the heads. It doesn't matter if I re-coat them with a brush since they are rough finnished anyway, it would look just as good. Brush coating would keep me from having to remove the headers, I don't even want to think about that. Anyone know where I can find such a product? Thanks, HotRod

Cool

POR 15 makes a brush on & I think eastwood also has it.Only thing is that you usually have to sandblast any header to get paint to stick.They're really hard to keep paint on. it might be worth the trouble to remove them.
I use a product called"High heat jet turbinemanifold coating" & the stuff is great, almost like a HPC coating, but then again the metal has to be completely oil free.The phone # is 1-800-833-8933

I think Eastwood company sells a product like you are looking for. Have seen it on exhaust manifolds and it looks pretty good, dont know how long it will last, but maybe this will help.PACO

Thanks PACO, I looked a little closer at the Eastwood web page and I found some POR-20. It's exactly what I have been looking for, aluminum , 1200 deg, and brush on. I'm familliar with POR-15 but I didn't know about POR-20. I'm going to order some and get painting. Thanks!

Hello, I have used the POR High temp finish many times on the headers I build and customers existing manfolds and haeders. This stuff really works but is as mentioned absolutley imperative to sandblast the item being coated and wear RUBBER GLOVES during any handling of the sandlasted part. I also found blasting with sand to be a "must" rather than beads for this operation. It is cheaper than Ceramic coatings and last a long time BUT, will never be as good . One of the advantages of ceramic coatings is they retain the heat(Zero Heat Radiation!!) and reduce the underhood temperature drastically. I have a set done by HPC of Oklahoma nearly 20 years ago and they still look good. I don't think the POR finish will last that long but 3-5 years is not uncommon. I also bake the headers & manifolds in a oven at 350 degrees before installing them on a vehicle when I use POR coating.Just some thoughts ,Paul
