What is Caliper Painting?

Caliper painting or powder coating is more than just a cosmetic upgrade. It involves applying a specialised, high-temperature resistant paint to your vehicle’s brake calipers. This process not only transforms the visual appeal of your wheels but also adds a protective layer to the calipers, safeguarding them against environmental factors like moisture and salt, which can lead to rust and corrosion. Our expert service ensures that your calipers are not just painted but are treated to last longer while making a style statement.

Brake Caliper Powder Coating

We are also able to offer brake caliper powder coating. Powder coating provides an exceptional finish that not only enhances your vehicle’s aesthetic appeal but also significantly improves the colour and finish durability. It is important to note that in order to powder coat, the calipers must be  removed from the vehicle and provided to us

Our Detailed Caliper Painting Process

Thorough Cleaning

Removing Contaminants: We begin by extensively cleaning the calipers to remove all traces of dirt, grease, and rust. This step is crucial for ensuring the paint adheres properly and lasts longer.

Precision Sanding

Surface Preparation: The calipers are then carefully sanded to create a smooth surface. This step is vital for paint adhesion and helps in achieving an even and professional finish.

Applying Primer

Foundation Layer: A high-quality primer is applied to the calipers. This acts as a base layer, enhancing the durability of the paint and ensuring it sticks to the caliper without peeling or chipping.

Quality Painting

Colour Application: We offer a variety of vibrant, heat-resistant paints. You can choose your preferred colour and finish, from glossy to matte, to match your vehicle’s style.

Sealing and Finishing

Protective Coating: Once the paint is dry, we apply a clear sealant. This provides additional protection against the elements and gives the calipers a glossy, polished look.

Applying Decals (Optional)

If you’re looking to have decals added to your brake calipers, we apply it in this stage. Decals can range from branding to logos to anything that will fit on it!
