Enamel color change -heat related

nosootOctober 14, 2007

We just installed a new VC Aspen -Bordoux red. We have made 2 small fires per the instructions -max of 500 degress at stovetop. We noticed the color changes almost to a brown at 500 degrees. When it was cooled off the next day it looked red again. Is this a normal function of the colored enamels?

Have you tried posting the question at Hearth.com?
There seems to be more activity on that site. They also have a great search feature and lots of information on all things Hearth related. Good luck!

This is normal. Our old Intrepid used to do that every time. As long as it isn't glowing orange or bright red I wouldn't worry too much about the color changes.
