Brembo Touch-up Paint?

What is everyone using for a touchup paint? I found a few references online for paint that matches, but no high temperature option short of repainting the whole caliper.

I just have a few small nicks that I would like to fix. Has anyone found a suitable paint pen or small bottle with applicator that is high temp?

Well, I got some Duplicolor caliper paint and am going to try it out and see how it looks.

i believe brembo's are power coated, not painted. meaning there's no touching them up.

Pretty sure theyíre painted: https://www.brembo.com/en/company/ne...alipers-brembo

In any case, Iím not going to refinish the calipers for a few small spots.

Have not had to touch mine up yet but Jesus type that same question into google and you will get at least 5 options to try. I would try this one first. RAL 3020

Thanks. I did that before posting. Iím looking for high temp paint, as stated in the original post. Did not find that anywhere.

RAL 3020 is not high temp. I called the company and they specifically said it will not work for brakes.

Unless you actually plan on taking these brakes to high temp like track or autocross, find yourself the nearest paint match and touch up paint it frequently.

Brembos are originally anodized. Unless you’ve got some second hand that we’re anodized a different color than what OE offers, you won’t find an exact match + high temp. Even anodizing changes the color a shade or two. Some high temp paints are over exaggerated to make a sale.

See the link above: Brembos are painted from the factory. The company that makes RAL 3020 said the paint will burn off around 100įF, which sounds very low to me, but thatís what they said. Brakes will get that hot even going to the grocery store.

If you look at reviews online, most people say that the touch up paint will either burn off or change color. I was simply trying to find something that worked.

In any case, I just used high temp caliper paint that doesnít match perfectly, but is close enough for me.

RAL 3020 is a color code from the RAL color standard system and not a paint manufacturer. Paint shops and manufacturers will use these codes to match a certain color, just like the Pantone system (PMS). Manufacturers like Duplicolor will formulate their paint to withstand high temperatures, but might use a RAL color code for the color.

Thanks for the clarification. I called Duplicolor and asked for a high temp in that color and they said they donít offer it.
