Engine and exhaust paints are designed to withstand extreme temperatures and are characterised by the resistance to the impact of aggressive chemicals. Used to protect the engine and exhaust system components from corrosion and other destructive factors.

What are the types of high temperature paints

These products differ in the temperature range within which they can be used. There are products intended for being used at the temperature of up to 500, 600 or 900 °C.

By form of production:

  • Aerosols. They are easy to use. These packages do not usually contain much paint. Therefore, they are recommended for treating small areas.
  • Cans. The paint is applied with a brush, paint roller or sprayer. Packages differ in volume. It is cost-efficient to buy big cans if there is a necessity to treat a large area, for example, to paint an engine, oil pan or exhaust pipe.
