Post Subject: Treating rust on a stove pipe

I need to repaint the stove pipe from my Morso fire, however there are areas of surface rust, especially on the weld joints. Other than rubbing down as well as I can are there any rust convertors/primers available that will with stand the heat generated?

Fortan MIGHT but many others seem to have some kind of latex or PVA base. One of the products like the old Jenolite or Naval Jelly that dissolve rather than convert the rust should be OK but I would not bother. I just rub the pipe down and re-paint with heat resistant paint. It might be an idea to repaint each spring when you are done with the stove so it is protected during the summer. Tony Brooks Personally I would not bother. I would just rub it down
