What is the most durable longest lasting aerosol paint that is readily available?
Im looking to paint a few things. The turbo being the one I think needs the most durable paint. I for sure want to paint the compressor housing, which I think regular 500 degree duplicolor engine enamel may be good enough for, aswell as my valve cover, intake manifold and transmission.
I was also hoping to paint the exhaust housing of the turbo, which obviously sees extreme heat, but I hate the look of a fresh looking motor and a rusty exhaust housing like they all go on our daily drivers.
Is there a paint that can take the abuse? And not squish/ruin when tightening fasteners into it??
I have several weeks to do this paint project so if a paint needs to hardnen for some time afterwards to become even more durable that isnt a problem.
What are you guys using?? Hopefully with a year+ durability. Pics of how things look JUST painted arent really relevant. I want durability and long lasting
500 degree? You obviously are not at all familiar with how hot a turbo can get. You could get up to 2000 degrees depending on conditions. Probably nothing off the shelf is gonna cut it. Look into ceramics.
The best aerosol high heat paint that I have used is VHT FLameProof header paint. It is rated at 2000*F. You can buy it at any Pepboys. I've use it on headers, charge pipes, turbos, downpipes, and mufflers with no problems.
It actually comes in quite a few colors but black and grey is typically what you see in most stores. You have to order most other colors. Your store can probably order you other colors. Here is a link ----> http://www.vhtpaint.com/products/flameproof/
I have never painted the turbine housing of a turbo with this stuff but I think it might get the job done.
