During engine operation, engine component temperatures can range from a few hundred to close to 1000ºF. That's why the typical engine compartment has a lot of peeled paint. Of course, this won’t do when you’re tricking out a hot rod or street machine. For that you need paint that looks good when it goes on and stays looking good, even when things get very hot. To coat engine blocks and heads, etc., you need VHT high heat coatings.

VHT is a division of Duplicolor, Inc. a Sherwin-Williams Company. They’re most well-known for high heat paints (VHT stands for Very High Temperature) like VHT Flameproof™, which can withstand temperatures up to 2000ºF, and was originally developed for the space program to use on re-entry vehicles. Flameproof is ideal for headers, exhaust systems, and turbo housings. But high heat conditions aren’t exclusive to your engine. Your brake calipers can run extremely hot and if you want to make them look good behind those plus size wheels and tires, you need a paint that will take the heat.
Although high heat paints are their forte, VHT also has many specialty coatings for everything from surface prep, to vinyl dye, to bumper and trim paint. VHT Prep Spray will clean dirt, wax, oil and grease from surfaces to be painted, and VHT Adhesion Promoter will improve the adhesion of enamel and lacquer topcoats to all surfaces, including plastic and chrome. VHT Vinyl Dye will restore or change the color of vinyl upholstery, seats, trim and even carpeting. And if your bumpers and trim are dull and faded, VHT Hood, Bumper and Trim Paint can make them like new. Its unique formula includes elastomers that allow the paint to flex, and it works on fiberglass, plastic and metal.
When you spray it on the rust about 1 minute later it turns a little lighter than black color, to stop the rust from spreading. It is probably the best anti rust spray you can get.
I used this SP131 over SP304 primer. The fine mist tips on these aerosol cans spray very well, and I did not have any drip problems. The paint laid down well and dried to a hard finish. I used it to spray the base of a 20" lapidary slab saw made of welded sheet metal. The only minor complaint I would have is that the paint dried just a little too fast, so I had to move quickly to prevent the previous spray path from drying too much before the next over lapping pass. But this may have been due to the fact that I was spraying outdoors on a hot summer afternoon. I would buy this paint again.

I was a bit skeptical at first, but the product actually looked pretty nice. I like it better than the regular tint. I took off the tint to my truck, after I sprayed my car, and I sprayed my truck taillights also. I would definitely recommend!!

Not bad for the price and it can be used on anything you are trying to paint. I used it on fiberglass, and then plastic, and then metal, and it did its job for all three.

Does exactly what it's suppose to do. I think this is pretty much a carb cleaner that is repackaged so don't go too crazy when spraying it on plastic parts of the brakes.

I have used this product in the past and absolutely love it. No hassle with covers that don't stay flush or start to fall off. It's extremely easy to use. You must apply in light layers as heavy layers will do what any kind of spray will do - run. It looks awesome when it has dried.

This stuff is amazing! If your vinyl is tired-looking (not torn up), give this a shot. It goes on easily and stays put. I haven't tried it on the carpet yet, but so far (on dash parts) it works great. Good product!
