Painting metal pipes and radiators

Painting metal pipes and radiators
Before you paint pipes or radiators, ensure that heating or hot-water appliances have been switched off. Check that the metal fixtures have had time to cool down. Ensure previously painted surfaces are free of dust by washing them down with a solution of household detergent. Key a high-gloss surface by rubbing down the paint with fine wet-and-dry paper. Rinse and ensure it is completely dry before starting to paint.
The longest-lasting finish for metal is created by using a proprietary metal or radiator paint or enamel. On radiators, use a 5cm (2in) brush and apply the paint as thinly as possible, working quickly with long, light strokes. Be very careful to avoid getting paint on or near the valves, as dried paint will cause them to stick. Use a small piece of card to prevent flicking paint onto the wall surface when you paint the edges of the radiator.
Pipes should be painted with the same paint as the radiator with a 2.5cm (lin) brush, working vertically from top to bottom.
