VHT Flameproof coatings

Post by cemiddle » May 31st, 2013, 9:15 am

Has anyone tried this product? It says its good to 2000 degrees and comes in rattle cans with large color selection. My only question is the curing process don't know if you can do it exactly as recomended on a smoker.

I sprayed my disco with it but have yet to use it. Good question.

I plan on trying it out when I get to that point, just not there yet. I hope it holds up at temp if the cure is not done exact.

New here & reading the recent paint posts. I used this paint (VHT) on my firebox & direct cook grill box (pics are in the new member intro section). I won't bore you with the details but this wasn't my first time painting stuff, I know all the prep stuff pretty well and then I followed the curing process pretty closely using small gas burners, electronic thermos and my IR gun. Bottom line, at least for me, it started to discolor by my second cook and after 6 months looks like crap. I'm reading the paint section here 'cause I'm in the process of blasting mine down and will be repainting in the next few weeks, it will not be with VHT!
Edit: I know my comment may be a little late and you might have already tried the VHT. If you have or decide to use it, I hope you have better results than I did and if you can make it work for you I would love to know your secret. Best of luck.

thanks for the info. I went ahead and used the stuff from Lowes and painted it black. I didn't like the cure process on the VHT and was fairly certain I couldnt get it done properly.
