What black paint for the boiler & Cylinder Block?

Post  SimonW on Tue 21 Jun 2016, 2:49 am

Hi All,

Just wanted to ask what type/whos black paint others are using for the boiler and cylinder block?
I know it says it doesn't have to be heat resisting, and I used the Plasticote VHT paint on the smokebox and chimney as suggested elsewhere on the forum, but I just want a good quality brushable paint for the boiler and cylinder block...

Any info gratefully received...

Thanks

Simon

Hi Simon, I used a brush on stove paint on both. The boiler and cylinder block will get very hot so a heat resistant paint would be recommended.
I have used Blackfriar Heat Resistant Paint, I used a Matt black but you can get a gloss too. The paint is very thin, you will need several coats but it is dry in about 20mins, then ready to re-coat.
It's the best one I have found, after trying various makes.

Hope that helps

Charlie

Your block will only get to 193 at 180psi.

I use B&Q stove paint.

Hi Simon

I used the normal craftmaster enamel paint. I was unsure so sought advice from HQ, hopefully it should be Ok as I've used the same paint albeit a different colour for the cylinder cladding, which touches and bolts directly to the cylinder, we shall see in a few months time Shocked

Cheers

Plastikote BBQ paint on anything that get hot or brushable high temp exhaust paint if you want to brush it on,works for me.

Recently used this on the boiler and cylinder block on the Agri during a bit of renovating and I've been very pleased with it so far Cool

Hi All,

Thanks very much for the advice.
Sounds like a heat resisting paint would be best for long term from what most of you are saying, so heat resisting it shall be!

A stove paint should do the job nicely....

Thanks again....

Very Happy
