Swain Tech Thermal Barrier Coating for headers is probably your best bet, it's quite thick, .015"-.020", other types of coatings are around .002" only. This coating is pearl white in color and extremely durable. It reduces radient heat by more than 50%. You can add some header wrap on top of that for an even better heat barrier.
