Question: I'm painting a large custom made smoker and was wondering if I should use the zinc dust prime before painting. What is your recommendation?
Answer: If the metal is going to be sandblasted, to prevent rust and corrosion long term Thurmalox 245 zinc dust primer should be used.

Adhesion and corrosion are both functions of surface prep.
Question: Is your stove paint appropriate to use on a wall heater? Does it require special expertise to use? Is primer required? Does it require special brushes or rollers to apply? How does it compare to KBS Coatings high heat resistant paint?
Answer: Our paint is an industrial paint/coating and will adhere to a bare metal, clean and dry surface. The first/initial drying/curing of the paint will have a little smell/odor from solvent evaporating. Primer is not required (that is for rust and corrosion) a brush needs to have a wooden handle (for solvent based paints)
Question: Hello, Looking to paint my ATV exhaust MUFFLER only, its starting to rust! just getting some more info on how long and durable the paint is! Thanks (also which color would you recommend its a dessert camo bike)
Answer: Our paint is an "industrial coating"/ "industrial application" meaning the surface must be sandblasted, painted and the paint needs to be heat cured @ 350F for 30 minutes in order to get proper adhesion.
Question: Can your paint be used outdoors?
Answer: Yes, for exterior applications, apply Thurmalox 245 Primer and 290 Topcoat.
Question: Will there be any odor from the paint?
Answer: After the paint has cured for 24 hours, if needed, we suggest properly venting your room for the first time you bring your stove up to temperature.
Question: Is your stove paint flat, satin or gloss?
Answer: Our stove paint are flat (no gloss) except for our satin black. We offer a clear gloss that can be applied over our standard colors to provide a shine.
