best way is sand blasting or beads sand and blast do it at your home,

Thanks Bopeep, but these things are 5 sections deep. I have sand blast equipement but I am not convinced it would penetrate to the middle sections. I think caustic sodar and then high pessure wash would be better.

fraser its now not legal to use that method if stripping as a business so you may find it hard to find someone


good luck

Have the radiators been pressure tested ? . If they are old and have been left empty for some time the jointing between the sections often leak. The radiator has to be stripped down and the sections rejointed. This is the best time to strip the paint.
