I do notice some of the coal sticks to the top sides of the hopper after painting, but I contribute that to the moisture on the coal when putting it in. As it dries it sticks, I think. Anyone else notice this?

Nice, glad your firing up Trader :D

Hey guys any update on the VHT paint? I just purchased some for my current project and wondered what the finish looked like after heat was applied to it.

I cleaned mine, wiped it down, sprayed it with grill paint. Then I put about 5 lbs of silica gel packs inside, on the grate, in the ash bucket, blocked my chimney with rags and put them inside the stove pipe also. worked great.

Here is what I did to a new Pocono. The design metallurgist in work (he knows his stuff) said to clean the new metal with Commercial 409 (Home Depot)to remove all oils, etc. This stuff is actually called out to clean jet engine parts by a much more expensive (official) name. Do this twice and let dry or put an electric heater in the stove body to dry. This is very important according to him. Next sprayed entire inside with (Grey) Rustoleum High Heat Primer (2000 F). Top coat was SP102 VHT Flat Back (1300-2000). Did not temper to certain heat treat temps, just started Pocono and that was it. I would have used the VHT primer (black) but could not find it. Also went with with dark shades so the coal infrared could warm the inside of case metal better that light colors or reflective colors like silver. This is a pretty small consideration but I try to get all the heat I can.

So far a month of operation suggests no peeling or any obvious signs of distress. So far, so good.....

Thank you for the replies guys. I am tempering the doors on the project stove in the kitchen oven now. I dont think she like it it much... :o .

Oh well. I didn't know if the heat treating of the paint changed the look or color at all. The dry color of the VHT black was not that nice in my opinion. Will see in a couple hours I guess.
