The advantages of Metal pipe paint:
- - White tubes provide up to 55% more light reflection, and more heat output of approximately 10%
- - pipe paint 51 is a primer and topcoat in one, with a high level of rust-proofing.
- - More environmentally friendly process and product
Metal pipe paint 51 is low in aromatic compounds and harmless to crops after through-drying. When manually painting, one can choose between one or two layers. For maintenance purposes, a single layer is almost always enough. Painting the tubes by hand is usually done with a washcloth or painter’s mitt. PIPE PAINT 51 is a satin finish tube coating with active anticorrosive pigments. PIPE PAINT 51 is suitable for both maintenance work and the painting of new pipes. Because COATING 51 possesses the hardness of a topcoat, combined with red lead, each layer is rust proof. PIPEPAINT 51 is a high quality red lead steel primer and provides protection for years to come. The product has been designed exactly for this type of application and application technique. The product is available in a 20-litre package. The washcloth and paint glove are available in pairs. Pipe Paint has been extensively tested by WUR Wageningen to see if toxic vapours are released. Four sensitive crops (tomatoes, cucumbers, kohlrabi and radishes) were tested extensively under worst-case conditions. Neither visible nor physiological effects were observed in any of the plant species that could be attributed to the paint treatment.

Applying Metal Pipe Paint: Best Practice
When it comes to painting your metal pipes with specialist metal pipe paint, there are a number of different rules that you should follow. Indeed, painting metal pipes is not as easy as painting normal surfaces, and so extra care should be given in order to ensure that the finish on your black iron pipes is as professional as possible.
So, how should you apply metal pipe paint for the best possible results? We’ve compiled a list of our top recommendations so that you can get the best finish for your home improvement project as possible.
Painting Metal Pipes: Getting Started
Before you start painting your metal pipes with metal pipe paint, you will need to do a few things to start off right. If you don’t take the time to start with to ensure that the work is done correctly, you will likely find that the end result is not what you expected after all!
Before starting, make sure that you first clean your metal pipes thoroughly. Clean the pipe carefully with non abrasive materials, to remove any buildup of dust or light debris. If there is more stubborn debris, you may need a slightly harsher cleaning tool in order to get the stubborn grime off of the surface of the metal pipes themselves.
Steel wool is commonly used at this point as an alternative to fine sandpaper, in order to delicately remove more stubborn buildups without scratching up the pipes themselves too much. Mineral spirits can also be effective for this purpose.
Once you have done this, you are then ready to proceed with painting the metal pipes. We highly recommend that you use a metal pipe paint roller to do so, as these are designed specifically for the purpose of painting metal pipes and will give a clean, even, and streak free result. A first coat or primer is also a good choice to apply prior to properly starting, too.
Using Metal Pipe Paint
Now, you are ready to use your metal pipe paint with your new pipe paint roller—or, if you haven’t got a paint roller, a brush or sponge—to give your property’s pipes a whole new lease of life. It is always important to remember, when painting your property’s pipes, to apply an even and consistent amount of paint to the pipe across the entire length so that you can be confident the pipe will be well covered.
Once you have chosen your paint, coat your paint roller generously and begin applying an even coating to the pipes. Once completed, the pipes should then be allowed to dry completely, so that the paint doesn’t run; a second application can be applied at this point if desired, although this will depend on the thickness of the first coat.
As an alternative to using standard metal pipe paint with a paint roller, you could also consider using spray paint to easily paint your pipes. It is important to use spray paint in a well ventilated space, though, and be careful so as not to apply excessive amounts to any individual spot on the length of the pipe.
