Best paint for Baseray baseboard radiators

wad2 Member Posts: 1
Im in the middle of renovating 2 rooms. I have Baseray baseboard hot water radiators that I have already stripped all the old laytex paiant off of. We plan on painting these white.

What is the best primer and paint that can be used on these? I am hoping for something that won't turn yellow and won't smell when winter comes.

Thanks in advance!

    Are you removing and reinstalling the radiators?

    If so, and the budget allows, have them powder coated.

    Painting "Baseray"

    If the units are not being removed, clean them thoroughly. You can then apply a coat of "Rustoleum" or "Hammerite". either paint is available at most hardware stores. They can be purchased as a spray on or as brush on paint. They are designed for metal and produce a hard temperature resistant finish.
