Header Paint That DOESNT Burn off??? Is there such a thing?

Ok, I've bought into the hype several times & all the High Heat Will not burn off statements have been B.S. every time ... it burns off.
I think I even bought paint once that claimed to adhere better with heat
I am wondering if anyone here has used paint on their headers that actually hasn't burned off. If so, please let me know what to buy!!!

Thanks in advance,
Nick

Re: Header Paint That DOESNT Burn off??? Is there such a thing?

Failing the paints.. if you decide to get the HPC/Jet Hot ceramic stuff, that will probably burn off too... like mine has.
The regular 1300F coating is 50F under what exhaust temps usually are when you're making power. So, if your engine bay has marginal airflow, or you chassis dyno your car, or you like doing big smokey burnouts, there's a good chance you burn it off.
HPC/Jet Hot and others offer a 2000F coating and that's expensive and what I would recomend if you have "off the shelf" headers you want coated.
Otherwise, just get your headers made out 304 or 316 stainless and never worry about them again!

For sure.. Powder coating is basically plastic..
