PlastiDip and Heat????

So I think that PlastiDip is an awesome product, but I'm wanting to put it some areas that will endure some heat and I wonder if it will hold up. Just ordered some Roush Axle Backs and wanted to Dip them Black will the PlastiDip hold up to that heat? Also under the hood instead of paying for a engine cover with white accents I was going to do it myself with PlastiDip has anyone seen if it will hold up under the hood?

You could just use paint... Like we did in the pre-Plastidip days.

I did my engine cover months ago, live in Florida too and it has been fine. Muffler tips i cant say though.

Going to eventually get hyrodipped but the dip is holding up very well on Intake cover

Haha.
I've never used Plastidip but I've applied an ENORMOUS amount of paint in my lifetime.
From what I've seen, the Plastidip is slightly MORE difficult to apply than paint. Sure, the paint won't just "peel" off if you don't like it but life is a challenge... I say GO FOR IT!

I did the 5.0 emblem on my engine cover and my strut tower bar all in plastidip a couple of weeks ago. No issues yet. On dip your car I think they say that dip will hold up on the exhaust tips.

Thanks. Took an entire day, but it was worth it. I would definitely recommend using the glossifier. It brought out more of the metallic look on the strut tower brace and made it look painted. I think im going to try my hood vents next.

Plasti-Dip's site says +200°F. DYC's Fonzie says it's rated to 312°F in his "myths" video addressing the same question about heat. He shows an Audi's exhaust tips that have been dipped for a year.
