FORREST launches INFERNEX® LB-1100 high-temp. baking enamel, a product designed to meet industry standards for muffler paint and exhaust paint. It is used on a major agricultural equipment manufacturer's exhaust system components.

New Enamel for Exhaust System Components

Based on the newest high temperature resin technology, INFERNEX® LB-1100 high-temp. baking enamel balances extreme corrosion resistance, flexibility, chemical resistance, mechanical durability and superior adhesion over long-term exposure to high temperatures (up to 1100°F (593°C)) subjected to thermal shock. The coating system passed qualifying tests for use on cold-rolled and hot-rolled, aluminized, and stainless steel for a well-known international agricultural equipment company that drives industry standards for muffler and exhaust system coatings.


Our R&D chemists worked in partnership with the specification engineers to meet the high standards for pre- and post-thermal adhesion, appearance, and other performance properties in order to be specified for use on their mufflers and exhaust components,” said Mark Forrest, president of FORREST Technical Coatings.

Oregon coatings manufacturer FORREST Technical Coatings was established in 1973 and serves the high temperature paint and general industrial and specialty coatings market. The INFERNEX® line is formulated to meet the extreme temperature needs of the muffler, exhaust, incinerator, and industrial silencer market. FORREST is also known for Stove Bright, a specialty high temperature coating for the wood, gas stove and barbecue market sold to manufacturers and consumers worldwide.
