I used to run a powder coating operation.  The baking ovens ran at around 400 F to cure the powder which could be polyester, epoxy (corrosion), polyurethane, or hybrid (polyester-epoxy).  The epoxy, hybrid and polyester (to a lesser degree) paints chalked in the sun.  A powder coat finish is very impressive if applied correctly, no sags, runs, orange peel, high gloss etc.  
I think you might have a heat issue with powder coatings if your temps are up there but I'm not familiar with high temp powder coatings so perhaps some others can chime in?
Doug.

All are useful for different things, and largely it comes down to taste, & what you think looks good.

I want to trick out the engine on the IO550 in my Legacy.  Before moving forward I wanted to check with the list to ask for ideas and or suggestions.  What will hold up the longest and look the best.  Ideas and or suggested places to get the work done will be most appreciated.
