For those of us without a powder coat oven at our disposal...I've cured high temp black spray paint by lighting a fire inside the furnace when still outdoors.
Black wouldn't really show, but does the clear take on contaminants, like soot, ash, smoke, etc?
Does it off-gas, like the black does?
I didn't know they had high temp clear, don't really do too much, but I'm thinking it might be nice to go over black high temp???
I know this is an old thread, but the stove p*rn alone is worth bringing it up again
According to the directions on the clear, after drying (about 1-1/2 hour) you cure it in 3 steps.
#1. 200* for 30 min, let cool for 30 min.
#2. 400* for 30 min. let cool for 30 min.
#3. 600* for 30 min. let cool for 30 min.
I waited until the following day to cure it, and didn't notice any outgassing. I don't see any problem curing it with a small fire in the stove first, letting it go out and gradually bring the temperature up again.
As far as taking on contaminants, the parts are already dry before the cure, and the trim pieces rarely see temperatures exceeding 500*
If you are looking for a higher gloss finish on your black high temp paint, it's worth a try, I prefer using stove polish after paint, or just stove polish alone.
I did hang one of the footrests inside my stoker for about 2 hours with no problems.
