I had a friend who used it on boat anchors. He loved the stuff but it was zinc paint as far as I could tell. Any paint hat will stand the heat will prolong the appearance of e3xhuast parts so the cold galvanizing should work as well as paint (I haven't checked it's resistance to heat). I did my BMW muffler in high temp black more than a year ago and it's still black with no visible rust. However, it's only preserving the appearance as the exhaust corrodes from the inside out, at least that's my experience.

I have had excellent results with this stove paint. Used it on a header and complete exhaust system three years ago and still looks the same today.

We used cold galvanizing spray to touch up galvanized bolts on exposed steel beams for buildings. It worked great, but if it got hit with a torch, it would blister. The stove paint that Mr. Kuzman mentions is a cost savings and reliable finish. It comes in various colors also. PJ
