Re: Hi-temp Paint

I've been looking at hi-temp spray paints that have a high temperature range anywhere from 500, 600, 900 or even 2000 degrees. The ones that are at 900 or 2000 degrees require one to cure the part (if it's off the car) in an oven at 250 degrees for an hour. The ones at 500 or 600 degrees require a cure time of 7 days without using an oven. I was wondering what paint you used Rick or if anybody else would like to comment on what they used.

Re: Hi-temp Paint


Hi Gil,

I've never cured the paint, just let it dry.
I'm sure the paint was cured after I used my brakes and created heat.
Curing in a oven seems to be a good idea for brake drums that don't have wood spokes and small parts
Keep n mind that High Temp paint has fewer solids that will retain heat when in use. Since this type of paint has fewer solids, resist the temptation to add too many layers.

Re: Hi-temp Paint

I had my drums powdercoated. The shop I used will blast them and coat them for almost as cheap as you can paint them. I just skimmed the lining(mainly to clean off the rust-you should not do much more than that, definitely not to solve any out of round issues). The powdercoating shop can easily mask the lining surface before they process them.
