I need to decide upon a color coating for a steel surface. This will be a grill top accessory and will be in contact with flames. I would prefer a black/brown coating color. I was considering teflon but what other suitable coatings are out there?
Teflon will burn off the top of grill racks; vaporizes above about 700 F. Carbon steel will turn brown with oxides, Stainless will turn black with oxides and some of mine may be carbon from burned stuff (I have not used the "self clean" burn for awhile). I suggest an oxide ( iron ,chrome) coating. It depends on what is the temperature of "flames" , a few hundred degrees or 1200 F degrees
