How to use our Hi-T Pot-Belly Black Spray Paint

PREPARATION: Clean surface thoroughly. Remove all traces of grease, oil, dirt and rust. Sand previously painted surfaces lightly, then clean and allow to dry before painting.

APPLICATION: Choose a dry, well ventilated area in which to paint. (Do not paint below 15C) Stir thoroughly.

HI-T Pot-Belly Black may be thinned with up to 10% mineral turpentine for brushing, or up to 25% for spraying.

When applying it is recommended that each coat be thin to medium rather than thick. Two coats are usually sufficient on new work. Note:  Two thin coats are better than one thick coat. (Coverage: 13-18m2/L)

DRYING: Touch dry in 1-2 hours; Handle in 4-6 hours; Recoat after at least 16 hours. NOTE: Longer drying time needed in cold or damp/humid weather. Allow at least 24 hours between the last coat of paint and full curing.

FULL CURING: It is important that the heating unit be fully cured to achieve hard-dry conditions as follows:

  • Ensure good ventilation by opening all windows and doors.   
  • Light a small fire inside the unit using paper and kindling wood only and maintain the fire’s intensity for at least 1hr. Some fumes and smoke may be emitted during this time. Avoid breathing fumes and smoke.
  • Gradually build the fire’s intensity over a further 1 hour period in order to complete the post curing of the paint. Very little fumes or smoke should be emitted during this time.
  • When this process has been completed, the unit may be used in the normal manner.

SAFETY DIRECTIONS: Risk: Flammable. Harmful by inhalation and in contact with skin. Irritating to eyes, respiratory system and skin. Vapours may cause drowsiness and dizziness.

SAFETY: Keep out of the reach of children. Keep container tightly closed in a cool, well ventilated place. Keep away from sources of ignition. Do not breathe fumes/vapour/spray. Use only in well ventilated areas. Keep windows and doors open during use and whilst drying. If coating large areas, wear an organic vapour respirator. Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Do NOT smoke.  

Safety

  • Never use petrol, oil or kerosene to help light the fire as they can cause an explosion.
  • If you have young children - a guard around any form of heating is a good precaution - Ask your dealer for advice on the best type.
  • Smoke detectors save lives. With or without a fireplace, a smoke detector is a good investment in your family’s safety.

Getting Started

  • Use kindling wood, paper and fire lighters to get the fire started. Large pieces of wood should be added after a bed of hot coals has been established.
  • Leave air controls open for 20 - 30 minutes to start the fire burning. You can expect some smoke from your flu when you first start but it should not last longer than 15 minutes.

Fueling your Fire

  • It’s important to get the fire hot as quick as possible & maintain it for the heating period.
  • Most heaters burn better with 3 or 4 logs rather than 1 or 2. Logs should not be too big -- 2kg to 4 kg or 40cm logs are typical.
  • Heaters with grates will perform better with a layer of ash on the base of the firebox, and should only need cleaning periodically. When cleaning out the ash, always leave 10mm or so behind.
  • Efficient burning only occurs when adequate air is supplied to the fuel. Leave air controls on for 15 - 20 minutes after reloading.

Overnight Burning

  • For overnight burning, load the heater at least half an hour before going to bed. Only turn the air supply down to a minimum once all the wood is charred  (about 15 - 20 minutes).
  • Most heaters should still burn for eight hours without difficulty and you will have far less creosote problems than if you fill the heater and turn it to slow burn straight away.
  • It will probably take you some time to get the feel of operating your heater for long periods. You might even find that once you have a good lighting method worked out and your house is well insulated you don’t need to burn overnight except on the coldest nights.
  • Do not close down air supply totally overnight - a little air avoids a lot of smoke.

Buying Fuel

  • It is always best, to use the type of fuel recommended by the manufacturer. If your heater meets the national emission standards, it will have a compliance plate which specifies the correct fuel to use.
  • Be sure of what you are buying or collecting in firewood.

Money Saving

  • Getting the best performance from your fuel and heater will save you money each year.
  • Make your home energy efficient by insulating the ceilings and walls.
  • Prevent heat leaks through cracks in doors and windows.
  • Reduce heat loss through windows by drawing heavy curtains at night.
  • Leaving the firebox open will affect the efficiency and reduce the heat output of your heater.

Wood Storage

  • Buy your wood in Spring or Summer as heaters operate best when wood is completely dry and well seasoned.
  • Store wood undercover in a dry ventilated area. Wood stored on pallets in a crisscrossed fashion allows air to circulate freely.

Service and Maintenance

  • The key to clean and efficient heating is not just installing an efficient heater, it is also operating and maintaining it correctly.
  • Whatever the age of your heater, use it correctly to reduce the need for repairs and servicing. Every heater has slightly different characteristics, so read and follow any instructions from the manufacturer carefully.
  • Service your heater during Spring or early Summer. This minimizes the corrosive effects of creosote residues and condensation during the off season.
  • Prior to winter, check the condition of the heater including the flu, door, seals and baffles. Specifically check for bird nests in or near the flu systems in the roof cavity. If loose insulation has been added to the ceiling check carefully that none has built up in the flu cavity clearance area.  Alternatively, have an experienced service person to do these checks.
  • Flues should be checked regularly by a chimney sweep.
  • Make it a habit to look outside and check your flu for smoke.
