Powder coating furnace & water heater outside doors ?

The outside doors on both our furnace and water heater have a distinct 'blah' look about them. I'm thinking about hauling them to my local powder coated and have them done in a nice silver-gray. The obvious question is will the doors get hot enough in actual use to harm the powder coating? Surely someone has tried this.

Should work fine. They will not get hot enough to the mess up the powder coating.

I used powder coating on my stove top and after extensive use for several years it still looks fine. I'm sure those doors don't get hotter than a stove top with a cast iron skillet frying shrimp.

OLD thread

I took the door off, hit it with some scotch brite to smooth up got some silver spray paint and did a couple of thin coats as silver paint has actual silver specks in the paint and it will run in a heart beat.. do outside on no or real calm wind day of in the garage with door open to let fumes out. looks good now some 1.5 yrs later and less costly than power coating.

did the door on furnace as well.. refrigerator door is stainless

I did the same. I used Rustoleum heat resistant paint in a rattle can, (aluminum or silver metallic - can't remember which)
Also did my aluminum jack foot and chocks with the same paint.

Powder coating furnace & water heater outside doors ?

I've done my share of spraying paint and lacquer but never powder coating
You get a very durable finish but the price is up there as well .
Did a search of what you may want; .https://www.thepowdercoatstore.com/p...powder-coating

Seeing some of your mods you would be up for challenge.

What you need is a gun to shoot the product( and compressor ) and old oven to cure it in .

I think You need to do this !!!

Years ago I sprayed our water heater door with silver paint and then clear coat over that. It is now beginning to look a bit tatty, so a couple more spray cans are in my future. The spray paint really does look good. Clear coating helps keep it from turning dull for a long time.
