Default High Temp BBQ Paint On Exhaust Pipe?

Hello I was wondering if anyone has used or knows if High Temp BBQ Paint such as this brand: http://www.farmandfleet.com/products..._heat_paint%2f

would work on coating the outside of an exhaust pipe so it doesnt get surface rust as fast. Because i'm going to do a dual exhaust set-up on my ranger I want the pipes to last for awhile. It's rated for 1,200 degrees, and I just dont know how hot an exhaust tail pipe gets when its been running for a long extended trip.

They make regular high temp paint for engines. It will work for what you want.

Thats even better, do you think 2 cans will be enough to coat 2 tail pipes? Like how many light, even coats should i paint the pipes?

You going from tip to muffler?
If so I would say 1 can per pipe. 1 coat should do.

Did the BBQ paint keep the pipes from rusting/oxidizing for awhile?

i use the Dublicolor high heat paint that STL posted. ive used it since my system was new (about 7 years) and the only rust i have is light rust on the welds. i put a coat on about once every year or so just to keep the paint on the welds. it only seems to discolor and burn off from the muffler. the BBQ paint cant withstand as high of heat, at least the stuff i looked at couldnt, the duplicolor is supposed to resists 1200 degrees.

I never had any luck with high temp paint, it always seems to come off. I have had my exhaust on since beginning of '06, the muffler welds rusted off and I had to put on a new muffler. My pipes are still in good shape and still the aluminized color. My understanding of the high temp paint is more to resist heat than a rust proofing. Like if you wanted to put it on your motorcylce where you leg is close to a pipe. Thats just my opinion, I tried the stuff several times and it just burned off for me. Manifold temp is probably close to 1500* I would think, it wont be that hot at the tailpipes tho so you might be ok. Buy it, use it, post results!

The paint does not insulate heat at all. It isn't designed or intended to do that. It is to provide a color and inhibit rust. If it keeps coming off, then you're probably applying it wrong to begin with or using the wrong kind. That will happen with any paint.

There is a primer, color coat, and clear coat.
Clear coat would probably be overkill, but how long a paint job lasts has everything to do with preparation.
Also familiarize yourself with the curing requirements. The lower temperature tail pipe end might not generate enough heat to cure the paint in that area.

Might go with a matching engine paint on the lower temp part, like after the muffler. I'm not trying to make it sound complicated, just offering food for thought. Basically that prep and curing is pretty important for this application.

I just coated my exhaust from the cat back to the tips with BBQ paint.
It's rated at 1200* and it dried in about 20 min, although it smells HORRIBLE!
Everything is coated & looks nice. Not sure how it will do against rust, but we'll see.
One rattle can did my dual exhaust & muffler with a couple thick coats.
