New galvanized steel pipe with Stove Bright®

Tuesday, January 10th, 2017

For the best results when painting new galvanized steel pipe with Stove Bright®, follow these surface preparation steps:

  1. Clean and penetrate commercial sealant typically used over galvanized pipe by washing with 1 part vinegar to 1 part water.  Let that dry; then rinse thoroughly with clean warm water. Dry with a clean cloth.
  1. Lightly sand the surface with 220 grit sandpaper to create a profile.  Wipe the surface with a clean cloth with a small amount of Acetone to lift the debris left by sanding.
  1. Apply Paint within 4 hours of the cleaning and sanding process.

After preparing the pipe according to the instructions above, follow the application and heat set steps outline in the Stove Bright® User Guide.

Is it best to use aerosol or brush-on paint?
The choice between aerosol and brush-on paint is often dependent on the user’s personal preference. Some like the control of applying the coats one stroke at a time while others like the ease-of-use of spraying it on. One benefit to aerosol is its ability to easily apply a thin, full-coverage coat.

How do I prep the surface prior to painting?
To ensure a lasting adhesion of the paint, the surface should be properly prepped prior to application. First, it is important that all rust is removed. High Temp Paint does not stop oxidization. For this reason, rust will reappear once again if not completely eliminated. You will also want to make sure you have a bare surface to work with; one free of grease, oil and other contaminants. Use Stove Bright Paint Prep to easily clean the surface before painting.
