    "You can but it should really be painted with a paint that can withstand high temperatures I.e radiator enamel but you can get it in eggshell to prevent peeling over time."

    "I would recommend using a metal paint for a radiator if you want the paint to actually last and not flake off, they can make you a metal paint with an eggshell finish in store if you ask."

    "You can only use that sort of paint if it's for wood and metal if it isn't then you have to buy radiator paint."

    "Bad idea I’ve recently been to a house were the radiators turned yellow because they were done in eggshell . There’s nothing wrong with a good undercoat and a decent radiator paint"
