Hi, I'm looking for a heat resistant white or light cream colour paint for the front panel of a Dimplex Storage Heater. Could you please recommend what paint of your products is the right one for that job? I can see the quick drying, on tech specifications mention temp up to 150ºC. Can be used for the storage job? Also I had contact Dimplex but they do not offer any solution. Thanks.


Blackfriar Quick Drying Radiator Paint will take a temperature up to 150°C but as we don’t know what actual surface temperature a night storage type heater will get up to we can’t say for sure if the paint will be OK on any particular storage heater, it could depend on the model, type etc. You will need to check with Dimplex to find out what the surface temperature of their particular heater will get to during use. (As they are the manufacturer they must know what temperature the surface of the heater gets up to during use). If it is below 150°C then the paint can be used.

Hi, would this be suitable for a duplex night storage heater?


Electric storage heaters get much hotter than conventional water filled radiators. Blackfriar Quick Drying Radiator Paint is designed for temperatures up to 150°C, you could check with Dimplex to see if they can advise on what the surface temperature of your particular heater will get to during use. If it is below 150°C then this product can be used.
