What Type Of Paint Can Be Used On Radiators?
For painting radiators, we recommended using Tikkurila’s Helmi 10 or Helmi 30. Unlike all modern-day solvent-based paints, they are guaranteed not to yellow upon exposure to heat. If you are applying paint directly to bare metal or painting over a radically different colour beneath, use Helmi Primer to build up coverage and maximise adhesion. This robust water-based primer is available in a wide range of colours with a drying time of just two hours.
The full range of topcoat options is noted below:
- Everal Aqua 10, Everal Aqua 40 or Everal Aqua 80, depending on the sheen level required
- Helmi 10, Helmi 30 or Helmi 80, depending on sheen level required
