Floors will stay clean and you don't have to RUB it with a rag to remove the paint.
Battery start to paint from the inside. Take a brush for radiators with a long handle, dip it into the paint and procrastinate inside of each radiator, try to capture all the hard to reach places.

Advice 2: How to paint the bathroom

To restore the old tub in two ways: to paint with a special enamel bath; to put an acrylic liner. To paint a bath with enamel is not difficult, you just need to follow the instructions.
How to paint the bathroom
You will need
  • White enamel;
  • Hardener;
  • Measuring Cup;
  • Oxalic acid 100 g;
  • Acetone 0.5 l;
  • 2 glass jars of 0.5 l;
  • Brush;
  • Narrow spatula;
  • Waterproof abrasive paper;
  • Rubber gloves.
Prepare the enamel for the job. To do this, remove the lid and place jar in hot water for 30 minutes. Mix well and leave it to cool to room temperature. Enamel finish.
Wear rubber gloves and wash tub. Vysypite oxalic acid on the bottom of the tub, moisten it with water so that it became a slurry, and spread evenly across the surface.

Paint the tub the same way as the first layer.

Bath ready to drink in 7 days.
Apply the enamel is thin and smooth movements. The layers should, no smudging and resist spots.
Useful advice
Solid enamel coating is formed only by mixing enamel with hardener in the specified state.

For reliable adhesion of the enamel coating to the tub surface must be absolutely dry.
The enamel is to be applied gradually in two layers.

For the painting, you can use enamel bath "Fantasy". Her kit includes all the necessary tools.

Advice 3: What kind of paint you can paint the walls in the bathroom

Not every paint is suitable for the bathroom. Need to buy one that has a moisture resistance. But among these enamels are those that better withstand prolonged exposure to water.
For painting the bathroom needed moisture proof paint
Bathroom – an area characterized by high humidity. So for painting the walls and ceiling will require special formulations – moisture-resistant. This category of colors is among all its types: latex, alkyd, acrylic, oil. So first you should choose a Foundation from which made the composition.

Any paint suitable for a bathroom?

If the walls are carefully plastered or lined with drywall, a good solution would be to acquire water-based enamel. It has moisture resistance, it forms a coating impermeable to vapor. Before applying the paint the surface should be prepared: to handle the primer composition. Paint water-based, non-toxic, fireproof, does not have a pronounced smell. After drying they form a thin but durable film which has water-repellent properties.

However, the drawback of these paints is: if the wall to RUB, for example, cotton swab, she will be painted in the color in which painted surface. In addition, you have should not be applied on metal products, as may appear rust. So around nails and screws, screwed into the wall, and sometimes formed a characteristic brownish stains. But usually the owners are updating the room before it happens.

For painting the perfect bathroom paint on alkyd or acrylic base. Among them we choose one that is labeled "waterproof". These enamels exhibit better adhesion to plaster, concrete and brick surfaces. But before applying the walls and ceiling need to be primed. Alkyd or acrylic paints should be applied in 2-3 layers, in this case, the coating is durable, resistant to mechanical damage. Painted surfaces are easy to clean, including tools with abrasive substances.

New to the market of paint products is chlorinated rubber paint. These enamel designed for painting of saunas, baths, swimming pools. Therefore, they are able to withstand long direct contact with water. For bathrooms these colors fit perfectly. They prevent the development of corrosion, possess bactericidal action, durable and easy to wash.

Is it possible to use in bath oil paint?

Not so long ago, these enamels were the most popular. They were stained all surfaces, including in areas with high humidity. The disadvantage of these compositions is that they long to dry, but ukrywa ability they have is great. After coloring in the room for a long time preserved the characteristic smell that like not every owner.

Advice 4: How to calculate square pipe

Imagine that you are going to paint supplied to your home gas pipes. As you need to paint? One or two banks? As a rule, containers of paint, to write, to cover a square calculated is the amount of paint. So, in order to determine exactly how many cans of paint to take, you need to calculate the area of gas pipes.
How to calculate square pipe
You will need
  • roulette;
  • - caliper;
  • - strong string;
  • calculator.
To calculate the area of a pipe of circular cross-section find out the length of the pipe in linear metres. Also, the calculation will need the outer diameter of the pipe.
Calculate the value of the outer diameter of the gas pipe. You can do it two ways. First method – measure the outer diameter of the gas pipe using a Vernier caliper. To do this, open the lips of this measuring tool and attach it to the pipe so that the pipe was between the jaws of the caliper. Then slide the sponge measuring tool: they should be tightly clasp the gas pipe. Looking at the measuring scale, determine the outer diameter of the pipe. The second method is grasp the tube thick thread. Then measure with tape measure the circumference of the pipe. Substituting value in the formula D = L / PI where L is the length of the circumference of the pipe, PI = 3,14 (PI), calculate the value of the outside diameter of the gas pipe. Translate the resulting figure is in meters.
Find the area of the gas pipe using the following formula: S = 2*PI*DMP*R, where PI is the number "PI" (3.14), DMP – gas length of pipe in linear meters, and R is the outer radius of the pipe. Given that the diameter is twice the radius, divide the result of the earlier calculations, the increased outer diameter in 2. Put all required data into the formula and calculate the area of the pipe.
Count each measure several times! One mistake will have a significant impact on the final result.
Useful advice
Due to the fact that the current pipe does not meet the standards of GOST, the use of the indicators compiled in the past, the special tables may give an incorrect result. So don't be lazy all the indicators to cross-check yourself.
