High Temp Stove Paint Questions

If your customers are looking for a quick, inexpensive way to update their fireplace, a coat of high temp stove paint may be the answer. High temp stove paint is a great way to add a new, fresh look to the unit without a complete replacement. Another great reason to use these products – the application is easy.

Here are some common questions our customers have about high temp stove paint:

How do I prep the surface prior to painting
To ensure a lasting adhesion of the paint, the surface should be properly prepped prior to application. First, it is important that all rust is removed. High Temp Paint does not stop oxidization. For this reason, rust will reappear once again if not completely eliminated. You will also want to make sure you have a bare surface to work with; one free of grease, oil and other contaminants. Use Stove Bright Paint Prep to easily clean the surface before painting.

Is it best to use aerosol or brush-on paint?

The choice between aerosol and brush-on paint is often dependent on the user’s personal preference. Some like the control of applying the coats one stroke at a time while others like the ease-of-use of spraying it on. One benefit to aerosol is its ability to easily apply a thin, full-coverage coat.

Do I need a primer?

Many high temp stove paints are self-priming with no additional primer needed for most indoor applications. Under rare circumstances (outdoor use and extremely humid climates), a high temp primer may need to be applied prior to painting.

What types of surfaces can I use this paint on?

Generally speaking, high temp stove paint can be used on: fire bricks, fireplace screens, woodstoves, steam pipes, boilers, fireplaces, fireplace inserts.
It should not be used on: kitchen stoves, kitchen stove burner grates, steam radiators.
