The process of coloring your stove is very similar to most paint finish applications. Good preparation combined with a number of even, lighter coats being preferable to a single heavy coat.
Three 13.5 oz. cans of Stove bright stove paint are sufficient to spray a complete Salamander stove.
Both the stove and the stove paint are designed to be applied at room temperature (20‐25 Celsius) or (66-77 Fahrenheit) so both stove and paint should be stored at this temperature for a minimum 3 hours prior to the start of the spraying. Ensure the spray area is well ventilated.
There are full instructions for best results written on the side of every tin.
Once painted it is very important not to over fire your stove until the stove paint finish has had a good chance to cure. This involves initially having a series of several small fires.
Starting with a small kindling fire, and subsequently each one thereafter increasing in intensity. Full paint curing instructions can be found on every tin.
This series of small fires should continue until the odor given off during the curing period has dissipated.
NO CLOTH OR ABRASIVE PAD SHOULD BE USED TO CLEAN THE PAINT SURFACE AFTER THE PAINT HAS CURED.
We recommend keeping a tin of spray paint which you can use periodically to refresh the appearance of your stove
CARE & ATTENTION
Particular care and attention should be given to lighter color stove paints during the stove paint curing process as they will require a longer series of small fires to cure properly.
Having a fire in excess of 150‐230 degrees Celsius or (300-450 degrees Fahrenheit) initially, will break the ‘stove paint–cast iron’ bond before it has properly set and cured against the cast iron surface. The consequences being that the paint may start to peel. Any affected area must be re‐primed and then re‐spayed.
