painting black steam pipe in basement

jejvtrOctober 4, 2006

We are finishing 1/2 basement 15x20 and several runs of black steam pipe (active) which will not be boxed in. white 2x2 tile ceiling

Paint guy rec

steel brush to prep and use a oil based primer only on the pipes - no further paint.

Anyone? is this correct or something else?

There's industrial paint made specifically for pipes that get hot. Check with a paint store.
