Bobbie, If they can do valve covers, I am not sure why they wouldn't do stove tops.

Like Bill said, it's practically bullet proof. Thats why it is so common on items that get abused, both physically AND thru heat exposure.

Perhaps a concentrated heat in one area may cause eventual discoloration or damage, or perhaps some toxic gassing when heated like that with the type of powder they use.

There are a variety of powders and compositions used, almost like different types of paint. They each have thier own best spec for material coatings before hand, thickness, gloss factor, texture and how long they should be baked at what temp for what type of material it should be on.

The place that did the powdercoat was the High-Lift jack factory near where we live. The only color choices are red or black. The man who owns the company is a friend of a friend so the cost was nil.

It probably has more to do with size than anything...and the term "Stove Top," may have to do with a home stove/oven which will be 36 to 40 inches. There are some people still trying to change from Avocado Green!

They list things of all sizes. I read on another site that stove tops were a problem because of the flames doing something to the powder coating.

Years ago, I painted an avocado green stove with wood stove paint. It worked. It chipped a lot (as I hadn't really been able to abrade the surface) but I just touched it up now and then (it was a spray paint.) I'm not suggesting that- it wasn't the best solution- but the heat was not a problem with it.

I don't cook inside anyways, don't want to mess things up. I like to cook on the fire and carry about 50 lbs ( haha) of cast iron cookware in the camper. The stove's just for purdy.

Must be a problem with the flame...it sure isn't because of the heat...it's not unusual for hotrodders to have headers and manifolds powder coated and them suckers get HOT!

Oh I love this RED stove top. So glad to hear of a solution, I'm going to look into Powder Coating for my stove top and sink. I spraypainted them both, and the stove has been fine, just a bit scratched but the sink started peeling apart and looks awful now.

Thanks for that Karen!

I forget the name right now (seniors moment ) but I think its on London Ave.
(32851 London Ave.) in one of those strip warehouse mall complexes, west of Lordco.

There is a carpet store first up on the corner (left side) as you drive into the complex. Its located next door to (possibly) the best chrome platting shop in the lower mainland just in case you need any 'bright work' done, BTW!!!!

P.S.
you've got mail.....

HEADS UP PEOPLE!!

I just returned from my powder coating people 'WestCoast Metal Finishers' with my stovetop parts ALL in hand. They advised me (as I suspected) that powdercoating these pieces might just be a waste of my $$$. They told me that the way to go with any (other than factory finish) finish on these pieces is to use Ceramic Coating, NOT powder coating. ....Yes the curing process is heat (bake oven) activated but that temperature is only about 400 degrees. Thats why (IF your wife doesn't mind) and you have the right equipment you can do this at home

Heat generated by the flame of a propane cook top can/does far surpass that temperature. I HAVE had the custom exhaust headers on one of my hot rods ceramic coated AND polished, so they look like chrome (close enough for the girls I go out with any way

They told me that the coating would probably very soon just start crumbling and flaking off, meaning another 'chore' to contend with.....

I seem to remember that a chrome plate or nickle was going to be about $100+ for a stovetop. I went with an all new one (stainless) from Suburban for about $150. I might get tired of some color in a while. I did spuluge and get the hinged ss top cover too.

....and yet further to my above post, just tonight on the B B tube I saw a commercial for stovetop clensers and they were saying that (gas) stovetops 'average' temp is 300 degrees. (note: this is LESS than the req'd 400 degrees to cure powdercoating!)

So I guess it boils down to who you believe/trust. Another car-buddy from Vale OR tells me that P/Coating a stovetop is the only way to go (to freshen up that area). He goes on to tell me that he has had the frame of one of his cars powdercoated and LOVES it. So, ....tell me, HOW does a powdercoated frame relate to a stovetop????
