Powder coating a wood stove

Post by bikerdad46 » Sat Nov 06, 2010 9:00 am

I have a customer wanting the outside jacket of an Ashley wood stove powder coated.
Will regular powder hold up or do I need to go with a high temp powder? What is the highest temp that regular powder is recommened for before using the High temp powder?
Thanks

I just read where if one was over stuffed and also depending on the type of wood used it could reach 800 degrees. Even though the one your customer want done might never see that much I would want to at least use the 1200 degree powder and then you know you are covered. Hell I have forgot what the rating is on the reg high temp powder is? Its been a while.
All I have said is said just for meanness so I don't have to argue with anyone!

Thanks for the replys. The problem is there's not much choice in colors in the high temp powder

You beat me too it Scott. Their color selection seems to be better than most companies choices for high temp stuff. Just remember that you dont want to use ceramics. Wood burners are meant to generate heat and the ceramic will help contain it defeating the purpose of the stove.
