Firewise® New Coat High Temp Spray Paint is a self-priming, silicone-based, low sheen and heat resistant paint. It may be painted directly onto cast iron, steel and stainless steel. It is suitable for painting pot-belly stoves, heaters, ovens, flues, barbecues and exhaust manifolds.
PREPARATION: Clean surface thoroughly. Remove all traces of grease, oil, dirt, and rust. Sand previously painted surfaces lightly. Wipe with mineral turps and allow to dry.
BEFORE SPRAYING: Cover all areas to protect from spray mist. Shake can vigorously for one minute before spraying and occasionally during use.
APPLICATION: Choose a dry, well-ventilated area. Do not apply when the temperature is below 15˚C, above 30˚C, or in high humidity. For optimum appearance and rust protection, hold can upright, approximately 20cm from surface and apply a pre-wetting mist coat, followed by a full even coat. Repeat if necessary. Avoid spraying too close to the surface or too thick a coat.
DRY TIME: Touch dry in 3 hours. Handle in 12 hours at temperatures between 15˚C and 25˚C. Recoat after 16 hours. Longer drying time needed in cold or damp/humid weather. Allow 24 hours between drying and curing.
CURING: It is important that the article is cured to achieve hard-dry conditions. Raise heat gradually. Fumes and smoke may be emitted during this time.
CLEAN UP: Clean the valve after use to prevent blocking. Turn the can upside down and press the valve until only gas emerges. Clean overspray while still wet with mineral turps.
COVERAGE: Approx. 1-1.2 sq metres.
