Heat Resistant Etch Primer

Post  bjwlancashire on Thu 21 Jun 2012, 12:55 pm

Question for Adam or anyone else that knows.

I want to paint my safety valve chimney black using the satin black engine paint I used on the cylinder block. It sticks like s%@+ to a blanket on the cast iron but it is not great on the simpling valve pipe etc.. Is there a primer that will take the heat and still allow me to paint on top of it with the Halfords engine paint?

I refuse to polish this part, Blackbeard is the name.

Hi Brian

I think most Primers have a high degree of heat resistancy, especially etch. Obviously it depends on the individual products though

You can always consider chemically blacking the brass.

Hi Brian,
Plasticote do a high temp black paint for wood stoves, not to be confused with their black high temp paint!!........ It's sticky stuff until it's baked but will stick to non ferrous as well as ferrous metals............ it's worked on everything I've coated with it!!

Tony

I'll second that, sprays nice from the can although it works out expensive at 8 a tin

Thanks for all the replies/recommendations, I am going to try the etch primer I already have based on Adam's comments - fingers crossed. It will have to wait until after the house move now, 2 weeks this weekend and Blackbeard is not back on his wheels yet!!!
