I am needing to paint the inside back wall of my fireplace. I have a brick fireplace and one of the bricks came out and I fixed it, but the stuff (can of Rutland fireplace putty stuff) was Black and shows up terribly, so I was going to spray paint it.

Our Answer:

Here is some information on this item from the manufacturer's Technical Data Sheet: It is a high-quality, high-temperature flat black silicone resin paint, for interior or exterior use. Easy spray on formula contains pure silicone resin. It can be used on bricks in or outside a firebox. It works well with a gas log unit, but can blister with a wood fire. Use on cold surfaces only. Shake can vigorously for one minute after metal agitator is heard. Repeat for 10 seconds each minute of spraying. Absolute must: Hold can no closer than 10-12 inches from surface to be sprayed. When spraying, open and shut valve completely with tip of forefinger. Do not attempt to cover with one coat. Move can rapidly back and forth releasing nozzle at the end of each stroke. Use short dusting strokes. Allow paint to become tacky between coats. To prevent clogging nozzle, after each use, turn can upside down and spray until only clear gas is emitted. Wipe clean. Heat curing is recommended for superior results. Be sure all paint is dry before firing stove. It is recommended that it air dry 24 hours before heat curing. Provide ventilation when firing stove for the first time after painting. Some smoke and odors are given off during this process. Do not breathe vapors or spray mist. They may affect the brain or nervous system, causing dizziness, headache, or nausea. Causes nose and throat irritation. If you experience headache or dizziness, increase fresh air, wear respiratory protection or leave the area. Wear an appropriate properly fitted NIOSH/MSHA approved respirator during and after application.

In Response to Question:

I am needing to paint the inside back wall of my fireplace. I have a brick fireplace and one of the bricks came out and I fixed it, but the stuff (can of Rutland fireplace putty stuff) was Black and shows up terribly, so I was going to spray paint it. My question is...does this paint emit harmful chemicals in the living area? Also does it contain a silicone protectant?
