How to paint a heater? Safe and durable solution.
Old, yellowish and damaged heaters can spoil the decorative effect of each interior. Sometimes it happens, that a device is operating smoothly and does not need to be replaced, but its appearance needs to be refreshed. Painting radiators is not difficult, but requires ground preparation and appropriate materials.
Before painting you should carefully prepare the surface which is to be renewed. It is best to do this in summer when the heater is cold or switch off the device and wait a few hours to allow it to cool down. The maximum permissible temperature of the painted surface must not exceed +30 degrees Celsius, because then the paint dries too quickly and will not be durable.
The heater should also be dry, dust free and degreased with detergent and water. Old peeling coatings and rusted elements must be removed using a wire brush and abrasive paper. Copper elements and installations should be wiped with steel wool to remove dirt and patina . So prepared surface can be painted.
|On starting an appropriate work the paint should be thoroughly stirred. Radiator should be covered with 2 or 3 layers of enamels while maintaining each time required time interval. To paint radiators we use paints designed specifically for this purpose. Good paint should work with metal substrates the radiators are made of. It should also be resistant to high temperatures and do not get yellow under the influence of heat. It should also have have good adhesion to the ground and excellent stress-breaking elasticity. The resulting paint coating should be durable and attractive. Śnieżka do kaloryferów - kliknij tutaj|
We can cover heaters with a painting coat using a flat soft brush, a roller or by spray.
There are also varnishes in a spray bottle designed specifically for painting radiators. Thanks to them we quickly cover with paint hard-to-reach places such as old heaters ribs and the heating installation elements exposed to high temperatures (up to 80 degrees Celsius).This varnish dries quickly (about 30 minutes); therefore refreshing proces of old and unaesthetic heater is simple and the resulting coating is durable and attractive.
