Hi, Can this paint be used around this fire - We are assuming this paint can be used due to the fire surround but want to confirm this.

Answer from Rawlins’ Technical Team: 

Surfaces painted with Stonelux Fireplace Paint must be a minimum of 100mm (10cm) away from any heat source.

questions Melanie Robinson on 2022-11-16 17:21:52

Hello - my open Baxi fireplace has a tall wood surround with marble inset and hearth. I tend to burn logs and bits do end up on the hearth and over the years have burnt the marble. Also, I don't have a cap on the chimney and ash also ends up being blown on the hearth which I sweep then wipe up. I am looking at using the Lamport simply stone finish. How easy will it be to sweep/clean the hearth when debris lands on it and what would I clean it with? Thank you

Answer from Rawlins’ Technical Team: 

Unfortunately this product would not be suitable for this application, it is not designed for direct flame contact.

Surfaces painted with Stonelux Fireplace Paint must be a minimum of 100mm (10cm) away from any heat source.

What’s the best way to remove Stonelux paint from a timber fire surround? Many thanks.

Answer from Rawlins’ Technical Team: 

Assuming the product has been applied and is cured, this would need to be abraded (sanded) to remove it.

Alternatively you could consider Thermoguard Thermostrip PRO, we would testing for compatibility on a small area prior to full application.
