  • Engine painting

    Hello!

    Currently disassembled XV1600 for painting, including the engine. The engine was very neatly sandblasted without disassembly. All openings were sealed. At the moment, there is a choice of paint for painting the motor (I would like black matte).
    A bit confused, community help needed)))
    I chose based on this article:
    https://4wdlife.com/best-engine-paints
    The selection criteria are painting without disassembling the motor; enamel should not require “baking” (be heat cured) after painting.

    Leader at the moment:

    Rust-Oleum Engine Enamel (enamel) + Rust-Oleum Engine Primer (primer)
    https://www.rustoleum.com/product-ca.../engine-enamel
    Of the minuses - the week dries and the color is glossy.

    Also interested in this:

    PlastiKote 215 Low Gloss Black Engine Enamel (enamel) + PlastiKote 228 Gray Engine Primer Engine Enamel (primer).
    https://www.plastikote.com/products/...ne-Enamel.html
    I just can’t understand - is "baking" required?

    Engine Enamel with Ceramic Primer (Primer) + Low Gloss Black Engine Enamel with Ceramic
    https://www.duplicolor.com/product/e...-with-ceramic/
    I don’t understand either - do I need to "bake"?

    Thank you very much in advance!

    Plastikote says,Repeated exposure to engine heat up to 350°F will fuse engine enamel to the surface to increase bonding strength. So no, no baking required.Same for the Duplicolor, anything that comes in a spraycan is for home use, no baking required.

      Not quite right. This requires "baking":

        You seem to have a problem with reading & comprehension of the English language, the temperature stated has nothing to do with baking of the paint but the temps it can withstand. Like I said nothing that comes out of a spraycan requires baking. Lol.

      ITEMS OFF THE VEHICLE
      Bake at 250°F (121°C) for 30 minutes and allow 30 minutes to cool. Bake at 400°F (204°C) for 30 minutes and allow 30 minutes to cool. Bake at 600°F (315°C) for 30 minutes and then allow 30 minutes to cool. Caution: Be sure not to exceed the heat tolerance of the least heat tolerant part.

      ITEMS ON THE VEHICLE
      Run the vehicle at idle for 10 minutes and then allow 20 minutes to cool. Run vehicle at idle for 20 minutes, then let cool for 20 minutes. Run vehicle at normal operating conditions for 30 minutes, then allow vehicle to cool.
      I do not argue - English is not my native language, but even this does not prevent me from understanding that, at least, I will have to paint the engine on a motorcycle in order to warm it up and "bake" the paint.

      Correct if I'm wrong. As I said, I will be glad to any advice.

        Painting a part on the bike and starting it is not what I know as baking, baking is done in an oven on a paint-line but Yes if the paint manufacturer wants to call starting the bike baking then yes you are correct.

      Eastwood makes a very good ceramic engine paint in several colors and finishes but you will need a spray gun as I don't think it comes in rattle cans....
      not all those who wander are lost......

        It looks interesting! That it is not an aerosol is wonderful! Aerosols are prohibited for international air delivery, as I learned today. ((((
