Monster BBQ Fabrication Sizzles With Ultrimax Paint
Fire Resistant Paint With a Gloss Top
Rob at RCH Engineering Barnsley has been a customer of Ultrimax since 2020. When he came to us looking for fire resistant paint and a 1 pack direct to metal paint we had to ask why.🤷♂️

The result was the need to construct a MEGA BBQ a project that would push Rob's fabrication skills to the limit as this concept build would be new to him also . A client asked Rob to construct a garden chill out area with fitted BBQ and the capacity to feed the whole family.
After setting to work in the RCH workshop ( see RCH's Instagram) Rob quickly realised the BBQ would require a heat resistant finish and secondly a higher gloss coat to give the final presentation a premium finish.
Ultrimax Helps With Heat Resistant Paint
After speaking to Ultrimax, Rob directed to a few paint options that met specification and colour choices. In the short term a solution could was chosen as Ultritemp in Black as a heat resistant coating and Ultrimax 1 1K in both Gloss Jet Black and Post office Red for the legs and ornamental parts.
Ultritemp is a superb heat resistant undercoating capable of protection up to 450oc approximately 100-150oc higher than the average BBQ will reach at maxium operation. (**it's worth noting over time all steel objects subjected to heat will rust regardless of coating system). Ultrimax 1 is Ultrimax's premium 1K metal paint with a near full gloss finish.
Post Office Red & Jet Black
After applying the Ultritemp, RCH then supplemented this by adding coats of 1 Pack Paint in Ultrimax 1 - Jet Black RAL 9005 for the legs and base and Post Office Red BS 538 for the ornamental sections. After many hours of fabrication and heat resistant painting, the finished result is one colosall BBQ and a very happy customer. The final design even included a family name plate to commemorate the BBQ opening ceremony.
