Radiator Paint (white) - 250ml - £1.00 at poundland

Was in Poundland Glasgow today and they had Radiator Paint for £1 for 250ml, which seems pretty good to me. Most of the other places I looked at was at least £4 for the same thing.

They has some other small tins too, such as yacht varnish but didn't pay that much attention.

It says manufactured by Norver Paints on the tin, and is enamel based

Could do with some if it's white... the only time I've seen this in Poundland was for non-white colours.
#2
Yes it is white

Normal gloss turns yellow pretty quickly due to the heat from the radiator sucking the pigment out of it. Definately worth while using radiator paint instead though if its enamal based can be difficult to work with.

Does anybody know if this is acrylic or enamal based?

What colour is a radiator beneath all the paint?
#10
it is enamel based, ive just used it to do a couple radiators that I had painted with normal gloss about 6 months ago, it is amazing how yellow the gloss is compared to the white of the radiator paint.

It goes on fine, doesnt run.

Guess I'll need to wait for a fw weeks to tell if it goes yellow! But I'm pretty happy with it so far.

good question, if it is I'm getting some

I always use undercoat and gloss, and can't say I've had a problem with it going yellow so soon, maybe after a couple of years it has, just like skirting. I used radiator paint on the bathroom radiator and it flaked off like crazy, probably something I did wrong but can't see how- won't touch it again now!

same here. bathroom one flaked off. possibly due to it having too much moisture-exposure?

Would a 250ml tin do more than one radiator? It's not something I'd thought about doing but since reading this I've noticed that mine do look a bit yellowish

As a painter and decorator I always use gloss paint, if it's mucky use an undercoat first. You need a good gloss though and it helps if you are quick!

The easiest way is to do it in bands of 4 grills, top and bottom, join them up and then do the next four, theen do top edge of rad. Bottom edge do as you do the bands!

I've used radiator paint & yacht paint on my skirtings and window & door frames. Lasts a heck of a lot longer than 'normal' gloss paint and a wipe over it's still as fresh as when first painted. 15yrs on skirtings & still looks white, white!

Best would be give it a good sand down and put on a good primer, then a good gloss. You can often buy Leyland non drip gloss which is very good, or Johnstones, both are just as good as Dulux or crown! The yellowing may be down to someone using furniture polish on them! OIr even cigarette smoke!

Things may well have moved on from when I was a decorator (15 years ago) but as I recall Dulux seemed to remain whiter and glossier for longer. Most jobs I was on used to use Johnstons, Leyland and similair brand paints. No doubting the quality when it comes to coverage but 5 years down the line Dulux would definately have retined its colour and shine better.

Enamal paint holds its colour better then gloss and probably even acrylic based paints. Its easir to apply a water based acrylic to a radiator then enamal but you dont quite get the shine.

Definate thumbs up on your advise on how to paint a radiator. Pretty much how I do them and is the only way to get a good finish. The only thing I would add is if you are using radiator paint is to turn the radiator on AFTER you have painted it to bake it on.

Further to yellowing problem - It is fundamental with Linseed oil based alkyd paints as used in decorative gloss.
The linseed oil has protions of linolenic and linoleic acid in its make up. The linolenic acid colours very heaviliy upon oxidation.
To avoid yellowing you need a linoleic acid rich resin - generally avaailble in the more expensive brands.
Like everything else - you get what you pay for!

Just painted rads its gone on great unlike expensive junk i last used from w...k.s time will tell if it yellows, also used yacht varnish on boat interior, this is also excellent good old pound shop
