Question

What paint for baseboard registers?


Do I really need to use high heat paint for hot water baseboard heaters?

I've found some spray paint that is also suitable for painting wood stoves which seems a little extreme to me. I've only seen it available in a limited number of colors and it's a spray so you can't tint it.

Any suggestions?

I would wait until summer, when the heater isn't on, and use an oil-based primer, and an oil finish product. After drying and curing, it should be fine unless the register hits a very high temp.
