Radiator Black 12 oz Satin Finish is rated 3.7857 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst spray ever!!! The thing clogged up like no tomorrow even if you followed their instruction at the back. It seems like it is out of compressed air and it just sputtered the whole time. Now my radiator is unfinished, i wonder where can i get another satin black paint to match this. I really think i should get a refund or a replacement. Even that, it will waste me so much time to finish the car. If i put my radiator and everything and the bumper back, then once the paint arrives (which is time again), i will have to take everything out and finish the radiator. Think twice getting this Radiator Black Satin Finish. This is really my worst experience so far. Very frustrating for sure.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good product - lousy directions My main complaint about the product is the sketchy. directions. "Two light applications, with drying time in between..." OK, so what is "drying time"? Five minutes? Two weeks? Something in-between? I guessed (wrong, apparently) at something like an hour. It actually took 3 coats to completely cover and the resulting surface is a wrinkle-finish like some people like on their valve covers, etc. Not bad, but not what I wanted or expected. I don't know why Eastwood can't post a PDF file with COMPLETE directions for each product on their web server. If I had another radiator to do, I would use this product on the core area only, and use engine paint on the tanks, frame, etc.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Eastwood Radiator Black Satin Finish I bought this after reading all the positive reviews on different forums.I used this to touch up my worn condenser which took a beating from the elements. I followed the directions on the can and it worked perfectly. The key is good surface prep and multiple, light, even coats every 30 minutes until its covered. I used 5 light coats in all, but my condenser was already painted black before. I also didn't drive anywhere for 24 hours so that it could cure. Covered even and there was no effect in A/C performance. I highly recommend this product to everyone. I used the satin finish and it looks great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Satin Black Finish I painted a new aluminum 55-57 Chevy ECP radiator with one can. I painted three coats with 10 minutes in between on a 70° day. I painted around the edges of the core first and then painted the tanks last to avoid overspray. I had the radiator hanging on a cable that spun so I could good coverage. I have a few spots on the fins that not as dark but that is due to me missing the angles. When painting the fins first you should do it from each angle and side. If not, you will not get the paint inside the fins properly. This is an application issue and not the paint. I am going to have a condenser in front and a shroud in back so I really took my time on the ends. The radiator tank ends look perfect. I did not need to do another application so I did not have any issues.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great product for specific application This paint is the best I have used for refinishing radiators during restorations and project vehicles. The thin consistency doesn't clog up the fins, yet it covers well and the sheen mimics original radiator color and texture very well. A must have for the detail oriented person.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Radiator is still black I purchased some 'Radiator Black' a couple of weeks ago and Eastwood has requested i give a review.It went on easy. It's not tacky like what you get from a radiator shop. It covers well. Although it's only been a couple of weeks, it's still black.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worked Fine I actually used this to paint the internals of a dehumidifier that I use in a wood drying kiln. The tannic acid released by oak wreaks havoc on untreated metal. So far I have seen no corrosion on any of the internals after painting.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Radiator is now black I purchased some of this 'Radiator Black' about two weeks ago for a new aluminum radiator and Eastwood has asked me to write a review. I can truthfully say it hasn't come off yet.

Radiator Black 12 oz Satin Finish

Item #10340Z

The right viscosity to spray-paint
your radiator without damage


Radiator Black Satin Paint is the perfect viscosity to spray-paint your radiator without damaging it Standard engine paints are too thick for use on a radiator because they can interfere with heat transfer, and block air flow between the cooling fins. But Radiator Black Satin is formulated specifically for your radiator, heater core and air conditioning condenser.
  • Won't block air flow between cooling fins
  • Won't interfere with heat transfer
  • Acrylic enamel
  • Withstands 300 degrees F
