High Heat paint on wood stove

Pretty certain I'll be getting the Grizzly stove out of Quebec. I like the looks of enamel paint on a cast iron stove, we have a large Vermont Casting working stove in our home, in fact its on right now. I use this stove during the shoulder seasons.

I'm thinking of using a high heat paint to resurface the new stove when it arrives. I know initially it will look great, hoping it doesn't chip. Any of you painted your stove and did it work out okay?

Thought I'd start a new thread since the wood stove one is getting biblically long.

Re: High Heat paint on wood stove

Enamel paint will never be as durable as porcelain enamel. And, most stoves are a matte black finish simply because that's the most efficient heat radiator: Matte black.

But if you want to reduce the efficiency and make it suit your aesthetic...there are "barbeque" and "engine exhaust" high temperature paints, in a limited selection of colors. By all means. You just might want to check their temperature ratings versus the surface temperatures of the stove, ask the maker how hot the hottest spots might get.

Powder coating might work. They have a high temp coating for exh.

High Heat paint on wood stove

Of your going to take it to have it done, you donít want powder coat.
You want it plasma coated, then you can get the silly thing red hot and it still wonít burn the coating.
Iíve had headers etc plasma coated and it works very well.
They can spray ceramic, which is very tough and durable.

That's what I was thinking of. Thought it was some sort of powder coating too. It looks very good but I've seen some failures on homebuilt aircraft exh pipes.

Just found a retailer locally for ceramic spray, but no go for plasma spray.

Re: High Heat paint on wood stove

I use some cheapo black coloured spraypaint that is rated for 650 celsius. I remove the stove once every year or two to remove the rust and repaint. Seems to work fine.

The stove is a cheap one from eBay. Similar to this: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Small-Coa...-/132514653615

Re: High Heat paint on wood stove

I have two wood stoves in my home, a pacific energy summit and an osburn the pacific energy stays lit for about 3.5-4 a months a year and the osburn upstairs is used during cold snaps so maybe 30days on that one

High heat enamel is good enough easy 5-7 year life out of it. Our pacific is still original and is near 10 years old

I think it performs as good as 10 times more expensive shiny SS marine units. I donít expect it to last as long, but it is so cheap I can just replace it if it rust too much. I suspect it will easily last around 5-10 years.

Here's a short vid of the Grizzly stove, not bad for the price and made in Canada which I like:
