Baking ceramic paint coated parts in oven safe?

I painted my full exhaust and a few extra parts with ceramic based stove paint. Do you guys think it's safe to use my cooking over to cure the small parts? I bake plastic headlights in them and that's safe. But I think the ceramic paint may smoke.

I've heard that you don't want to do powder coating in your home oven...if you are planning to put food in it later. I would liken ceramic coating to powder coating and wouldn't risk it. Keep an eye on Craigslist and on yard sales for a cheap oven you could throw in the garage.

Do you think a 475watt heat gun will do the trick? I had a toaster oven for this very reason... But I think my mom threw it out. :(

Reverse flow header. It's actually too hot to touch unless you have quick hands. I think I'll try stupid stuff like this and hope it works.? A can of engine paint (same stuff I assume) said bring the engine up to normal temp at idle for 30 minutes.

Header scratched before it was even fitted correctly. Fail.

Do not use cermaic based paint!

I used 3 cans of brake cleaner and stripped it back down to bare metal.

I bought this wall oven for 40 bucks, and it works great for PC. It only has to maintain 400 degrees for 20 minutes. sorry have to fix the picture.

That's crazy because my bike doesn't get that hot! The cans of vht said to let the vehicle sit at idle for a half an hour. My bike will idle at 180f. Even when running, it isn't hot enough to melt my shoe when it hit the stock header by the peg.

They should come with a lable "must bake" or something if that's the case.

doesn't your bike have fairings? you barely see those pipes.

i doubt the carbon would burn. mine would have burned a long time ago. maybe a little less life on the muffler packing, but that wouldn't be something to worry about.

It does. But I also painted my mid-pipe to match. Because I have a custom undertail exhaust, you will see a lot of pipe. But it's all stripped down and reassembled.

The 400 degrees for 20 minutes, is what PC needs to cure in the oven.

The reason you cant use it in your kitchen oven is that PC is as fine as baby powder. As it heat up,some of those fine particulates may detach and float around your oven. You dont want to have those particulates attaching to your Meatloaf and then be ingested. You also dont want to apply PC without some type of breathing mask.
On a side note, if you do get an old oven to PC in, dont tell your friends, they'll have all kinds of stuff for you to do.
