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.

Q: I am looking to apply to a wood furnace exterior. Can the curing be done by burning the furnace at a low temperature? How long?

Asked by:  - 7/10/2014

Rating Great ,easy to use product
 
I used the XTC primer and and high temp coating on exhaust collector bolts and nuts. Not sure how it will survive the mechanical part of being bolted and unbolted. Either way has to be better than fighting with rusted and galled bolts. They look great and coated very nicely, especially on new bolts and nuts.

Rating Very Nice Topcoat
 
The XTC topcoat (color) mixed up very nicely and gave me an even, uniform coverage. I do not own a spray gun, so I applied the product using paint sponges. The paint is actually quite thick, which made it easy to apply and manipulate.

Rating Boat Racers... Best Header Paint Ever!
 
I am a flat bottom Sprint Boat Racer and have utilized Other Hi-Temp silver paints and professional ceramic coatings and all have failed! We run our boats with SB and BB Chevy's at WOT (Wide Open Throttle) for 10-12 minute heats. The throttle is rarely breathed unlike car racing. My first race with the KBS Xtreme Silver / Aluminum look spray can coating and not a single flake of paint came off. In fact the only damage to the paint was from my cover rubbing on the header on the 1200 mile trip to Florida. Great Product and I have referred to all of my boat racing buddies!
