Q: May I use XTC xtreme coating on mufflers with light rust?

Q: Could you use this paint on appliances such as a stove and refrigerator?

Asked by:  - 9/5/2013

A: Yes, you can use XTC on high temperature (above 500 degrees F.) appliances as long as you can heat cure the appliance surface which allows XTC to reach it's maximum cure. Be sure to check out the heat cure process in the XTC Directions.

For a fridge, most customers use RustSeal for its durability and most fridges do not see temperatures above 500 degrees F.

Rating Great product for coating exhaust manifold
 
Combined with the KBS Coatings XTC Extreme Temperature primer this is a great alternative to powder coating. Do it yourself and save money. I used KBS XTC primer and paint on my Lotus Esprit Turbo Exhaust manifold that gets notoriously hot! On a aggressive drive these manifold will actually glow red from heat! Coating has adhered and stayed on my manifold even after driving for several months,, I defintly recommend KBS products if your like me and would rather do it yourself and save some of your hard earned money

I needed white side pipes to complete the cars overall look. I've tried several over the counter products, taken the pipes off and had the coatings applied with no luck. even S company in NY state changed their adds to read , WILL DISCOLOR AFTER TIME. I've found your XTC to work the best for the look I have to have to make the car (beast)correct,thank you, I'll be a returning customer!
