Have you ever tried either of the products? If so, how would you rate them?

I've tried no nonsense magnolia mat emulsions what can I say it's great paint for the price.

Spray radiator paint sounds like a Great idea. So hard to do with a brush.

Thanks, picking up 5 tomorrow. Should be much easier than using a brush.

There's a small patch of rust on my bathroom radiator, does anyone know if it's fine it paint over with this, or do I have to treat/remove the rust somehow?

Interested in this myself for the parents in laws radiators but they are a bit rusted.

If the spray can is oil based it should cover up any rust with several coats.
Best thing to do is to google the team or read the back of it in store

no stock on the south coast again

I'd buy some radiator paint such as this and just apply generously to rusted area. Leave it overnight and check the following day as to whether the rust has surfaced. If it has, you will need to buy some Hammerite paint.

You would definitely need to treat your rust first, depending on how bad it is you can rub it with either sandpaper or preferably a wire brush (you can get these quite cheap) then smooth over with the sandpaper, you may need to prime the area as well as it will have eaten away at the enamel - if you ask in store they should be able to recommend the best thing to use maybe something like this screwfix.com/p/n…712 which should hopefully stop reoccurrences

I am not an expert in this field - my only claim to fame in this area is I used to work for a water treatment company who also sold specialised baths and did central heating things etc - I was purely in admin - however I do know that rust is not good for any metal and would urge you to get it treated before painting it as the paint will not cover it properly and the rust will just carry on eating at the enamel.

I've used these a few times and yes, it will cover up rust. I would recommend lightly sanding the whole radiator with wet'n'dry sandpaper for a better finish. For the rusted area, make sure all the corrosion is removed, right back to bare metal if necessary.

BUT, I'd strongly recommend you do it on a day when you can open all the windows in the room and wear a face mask that blocks vapours, not just dust. This stuff is very strong, your head will be buzzing if you don't. Also mask the area at least 24" in all directions around the radiator.

I can imagine the finish would be awful unless you are used to spray painting

Not rocket science, just the usual advice, lots of thin coats rather than a few thick coats which are more likely to cause runs. It dries pretty quickly so on a large radiator I find that by the time I get to the other end I only need to wait a short time before I can start at the other end again. Alternate between up and down and side to side patterns for even coverage too.

I use the satin finish, this deal is for gloss, and they look brand new when complete.

Personally I would scrape of any loose paint and rust and give it a good sanding with emery cloth or sandpaper.
Then I would spray some paint into the paint lid and apply it to the rusty area with a small paint brush or make up brush as a base coat a day before spraying.

Will this work on my car radiator?

How long is a piece of string?
Radiators are all different sizes therefore needing more or less paint.

ok, lets say, for example, one this big:
[ (radiator) ]

2x radiators medium size but only one coat each one.

Any rust area is best rid off with a rotary wire brush in a drill down to pitting then hammerite type paint it.

Does this look terrible after a couple of weeks or when you put radiators on? As I purchased some radiator paint and painted bits of my radiator that needed doing after removing rust with sandpaper. I'm not sure whats worse the way it was before rusty or now with its patchy paint X)

Is this any good? I usually go for the Plasti-Kote. Have my bathroom radiator to do, just patches that have flaked off (radiator has only been in about a year!). The paint has flaked off in one place on the top.

hotttttt

Bathroom steam forms condensation on cold radiators when the heating is off. Higher quality radiators made specifically for bathrooms (chrome rails etc.) should be more robust. Just in case you are considering replacing rather than painting...

Anyone found a code to get free delivery? Thanks


The best use for this, would be to spray smooth brand new radiators prolonging them. the ones used in cheap new builds all seem to end up rusting I imagine through a poor factory finish (microscopic air holes)
If you've already got rust spots, use 'K rust' to cure the spot after a quick rub down, but getting a perfect finish again will be a lot of work with a spray.

No Stock at Preston and 7 Lancashire store oOoOoOoO

To everyone who has purchased this item, make sure you sheet off (cover up) everything 4-5 feet around the area you intend to spray
or you will have a very hard job cleaning this stuff off and yes i have spray painted using products like this. The instructions will state that you must only use the item in a well ventilated room/area, if it is too well ventilated this paint can mist and travel a few feet, be careful Better to have 2-3 light coats than trying to apply a thick coat, allow the recommended time between coats. Try to keep draughts, kids, pets, well away from it when its wet, as anything and everything can and will stick to it.

00s near me... Wakefield

Still better to paint with soft brush slow and study less mess no need to cover surrounding area only the floor, I have used,Hammer Right Paint with soft brush excellent result
