Stove Polishing a Fireback

Polishing A Fireback Pennsylvania Firebacks are given a coat of water based black paint to protect the iron from rust in storage and in shipping. To protect your fireback and enhance its reflective qualities, we recommend a coat of Stove Polish, or Stove Black be applied. This water based graphite paste can be easily applied before a fireback is installed in the hearth. Future spot touchup applications can be done with the fireback in place.

a rag, leaving deeper cavities flat black
