Default Heat resistant paint for exhaust

The exhaust bend pipe of my Zma is rusted and I need to get it repainted.
I got it powder coated twice and it got burnt in 7 days
Now I need to get the bend header pipe repainted,are there any paints that can resist this kind of heat?
Dont want to spend 7K on a new exhaust

Try to find out where you can buy heat resistant black engine block enamel paint.

Akshay4587,

As Sankar said - there is specialized engine-block paint which can withstand high temperatures.
The bend of the exhaust pipe however will be a much hotter temp than the engine block IMO - so just make sure the paint you get is of a suitable temperature range.

Also, FYI - powder coating is a plastic coating, therefore it melts.

cya

Imo heat resistant engine block paint (if it's heat resistant marked on the can) would be fine on the exhaust header.
Or try exhaust wraps

Tbhp member Viper has exhaust wraps for sale, if my memory is correct. You can check with him.

Go to the biggest spare dealer in your town for the heat resistant paint. He might have it or else he can point you in the right direction. Another stop would be the industrial hardware supplier in your area. Check these places out.

He asked whether a heat resistant, upto 600 degree centigrade, paint would be enough for this application.

I saw a pic sometime back where the bend pipe was glowing orange on a fiero
