    Can you powder coat exhaust pipes?

    I am not a chrome fan and was wondering if anyone has powder coated exhaust pipes. Most specifically the portion past the 'mufflers' which one might see. I have a bit mental issue with wanting Gunmetal Gray on everything....

    Thoughts?

    I don't know about powder coating the tips haven't try it yet but I've use high heat paint on my exhaust tips and they came out amazing. Here's a picture of it painted with polish edge that I did here in my garage

    The ceramic link was interesting. Looks like you have to send out for that though. I would prefer to do myself.

    I wish I could see the high temp paint pipes better in the picks but I will take your word for it. I think that will do the job.

    Thanks. I think it would look great.

    Re: Can you powder coat exhaust pipes?

    When i had my RX7 with straight pipes and making 430rwhp at 15psi I did powder coat my exhaust tips gloss black.

    The ONLY exhaust tips that worked (after trial and error) were these.

    The reason is that the tip construction allowed the tips to keep cooler than traditional tips.

    Otherwise the powder coat my start to loose it's luster over time.

    Good info. If powder coat is not 100%, then paint is the answer due to easy of application. My plans are set...

    no problem.

    Remember it takes 350-400F for powder coat to glaze in the oven.

    I assume that exhaust tips are in the ballpark of temp.

    Re: Can you powder coat exhaust pipes?

    There are apparently powder coats good for up to 1000+ degrees F. Here's an example. I googled 'high temp powder coat'.

    I've painted my mufflers on tons of cars using High Temperature Flat Black Spray Paint. This one withstands temps up to 2000 F.

    Price is around $7 a can and can usually be found at most Walmarts, Autoparts stores or Amazon.

    Re: Can you powder coat exhaust pipes?

    here is the real deal site for this
    a quote from their site
    "According to the Guinness Book of World Records, the Red Savina Habanero is the hottest pepper on Earth 570,000 on the Scoville Heat Scale. The Jet-Hot Extreme 2500 series eats these for breakfast. With cayenne pepper on top. So if you need serious heat management with major corrosion protection, bookmark this page."

    here the site

    http://www.jet-hot.com/

    I want to do it but my local guy only goes up to a certain temp in the paint. I want the extreme version but would ahve to send them off to get done which I dont like to do.

    These guys also sell high temp powder coat and ceramic coats, for example for headers. It looks like anyone who could apply powder coat could apply these.
