Quick Drying Radiator Paint Gloss
- All surfaces must be clean, dry and free from rust, flaking paint, dirt, dust and grease. Rub down all painted surfaces with abrasive paper to provide a firm base and remove any rust. As with all water-based paints, very thorough surface preparation is essential. Remove all dust created by rubbing down. Where necessary wash the surface with dilute detergent, rinse with clean water and allow time to dry. Bare cast iron surfaces should be primed with a suitable metal primer before applying Hammerite Quick Drying Radiator Paint. For best results use Hammerite No.1 Rustbeater. Radiators must be turned off and only painted when cold.
Do not use or store in extremes of temperature and protect from frost. Special precautions should be taken to avoid inhalation of dust during surface preparation of pre-1960's paint surfaces as they may contain harmful lead.
- Ideal application temperature is 8 to 25degC. Do not apply Hammerite Quick Drying Radiator Paint at temperatures below 5degC. Stir thoroughly before use. Apply 1 or 2 coats of Hammerite Quick Drying Radiator Paint. Allow 4 hours between coats. Do not use the radiator for 24 hours after application.
Touch dry in 2 hours, recoat after 4 hours.
