This wiki has been updated 9 times since it was first published in April of 2018. Extreme temperatures encourage oxidation, which leads to rusting, pitting and, ultimately, a loss of structural integrity. The right coating goes a long way toward preventing this, and these high-temperature paints have insulating properties that can protect exhausts, engine manifolds, industrial machinery, outdoor grills, smokers, wood-burning stoves, chimney caps, and more.

High temperature paints are a simple, budget-friendly way to rejuvenate items that are often subjected to high temperatures, including engine systems, machinery, outdoor grills, chimney caps, and more. Here we provide you with a range of options that will help to prevent rusting, pitting, and other forms of damage.
Coming on board in this update is Rust-Oleum Enamel High Heat, which comes from one of the best-known brands in protective coverings. This versatile selection works well on grills, wood-burning stoves, and other metal items and comes in a variety of sizes, including quarts, pints, gallons, and a convenient 12-ounce spray bottle. It features a rich, satin finish and can withstand temperatures of up to 1200 degrees Fahrenheit. It dries quickly and can be used either indoors or out.
Remaining in the top spot is the POR-15 44000 Series, which can be used on manifolds, headers, exhausts, and stacks and resists cracking, chipping, and peeling like a champ. It’s resistant to salt and moisture, as well as mild industrial films.
Leaving the list today is the Cerakote C-Series, due to issues with availability.
For safety's sake, always paint in an open, well-ventilated area, and follow all safety guidelines carefully that are included with your product.
