How do I cure the paint surface on my new fire?

Stove Bright high temperature paint has been air dried, creating a quality coating.  To optimize the performance of the coating and to maximise its durability, it needs to go through a heating process.

Do the following BEFORE you use your new fire for the first time:

  1.  Ventilate:  Open doors and windows in the room.  To speed up dissipation of odour from the initial firing process, you can place a fan in the room to move the air.
  2.   Vacate:  The fumes from the initial heating process are non-toxic, but may be uncomfortable for babies, small children, pregnant women, elderly, pets, or anyone with breathing difficulties.
  3.   Wood Fires:  Slowly bring the stove to a medium burn, at about 200 degrees Celsius, for about 45 minutes, then increase the heat to 300 degrees Celsius for an additional 50-60 minutes.
  4.   Gas Fires:  Fire the appliance on low setting for 2-4 hours.

NOTE:  During the initial firing process, there are changes in the paint causing it to give off an odour and some visible smoke.  This should only happen on the first burn, and not subsequent uses.
