Caliper Painting & Spraying

Revamp Your Ride: Expert Caliper Painting & Spraying

Caliper painting, caliper spraying

When it comes to automotive customization, enthusiasts are constantly searching for ways to enhance the appearance of their vehicles. While attention is often given to elements like body kits, wheels, and paint jobs, one crucial component that tends to get overlooked is the brake calipers. However, caliper painting and caliper spraying have emerged as popular techniques that not only add a touch of style but also help maintain the overall aesthetics of a vehicle.

Caliper painting refers to the process of applying paint or specialized heat-resistant coatings on the brake calipers of a vehicle. This technique allows you to personalize your ride by adding vibrant colours or matching them with the car’s overall theme.

On the other hand, caliper spraying involves using spray paints specifically formulated for high-temperature applications. This method offers a more convenient way to achieve an even and smooth finish on brake calipers due to its aerosol format.

Great service from enquiry on line to getting a call from the lovely receptionist with a great quote, lower than I expected. Got an appointment to have the wheels removed and replaced with runarounds, 3 days later the wheels were fixed and fitted. I cannot praise these guys enough. Great Job.

Wheels were curbed and started corroding.... stefania was very helpful with all my queries, if she didnt no the answer she would ask one of the team rather the blag the answer, she also advised me of all the cost involved including the extra charges for buckled wheels and if they need welding which alot of other places didnt tell me about when I was looking at quotes. Ended up getting my brake calipers done as well and as you can see from the photos amazing job!

JR Auto Centre has exceeded my expectations. I dropped off my rims for reconditioning and they were ready for pickup with 2days. What I loved the most about them was that they OFFER LOAN WHEELS and kept me updated throughout the reconditioning process. These guys work so hard and are soo good that I cannot recommend them highly enough. They are without a doubt the best and most competitive on the M25. Congratulations to Johnny and his great team 👏

My wheels were painted black and in a terrible state when I bought the car, they made my otherwise clean X5 look battered. JR were very professional. I was welcomed and shown colour swabs and examples of other wheels. It took only 2 days and I was given replacement wheels whilst they had mine. Great price and really happy with the outcome. Thanks JR

I went online and dealt with them regarding a product. Their customer service was absolutely stunning. I was dealt in a calm, polite and friendly manner. Especially the two, Johnny and Elizabella. All the other staff was also very friendly. The workplace is also clean and tidy. After this, I repaired again four wheels the second day. The price is also fantastic. I will definitely recommend to everyone to shop alloys from this amazing company. Definitely worth the value.

Importance of maintaining

Caliper painting process

The process begins with proper cleaning and preparation before applying paint or spray onto the brake calipers. This involves removing the wheels to access the calipers and thoroughly cleaning them, ensuring the removal of any dirt, dust, or grime that may hinder proper paint adhesion.

After cleaning, the next step is choosing the appropriate paint specifically designed for high-temperature applications. These products are formulated to withstand extreme heat generated during braking and prevent premature fading or peeling.

Masking off surrounding areas is crucial to avoid overspray on other components. Once the calipers are adequately prepared, applying primer is necessary for better paint adhesion, especially in cases where caliper surfaces have imperfections or uneven textures.

The next step involves skillfully applying the chosen paint using specialist spraying guns. Proper painting techniques ensure an even finish and a seamless integration between brake calipers and other visual elements of a vehicle. Once the paint has dried, we apply your desired logos/decals and lacquer over them to ensure a long-lasting product.

Brake caliper painting benefits

The benefits of caliper painting and spraying extend beyond aesthetics alone. Aside from adding a personal touch to your vehicle, these techniques offer several advantages:


Enhanced resale value

Customized brake calipers can make your vehicle stand out when it comes time to sell or trade it in. Potential buyers are often drawn towards vehicles with meticulous attention given to even minor details.


Easier maintenance

Caliper painting helps seal metal surfaces, making them more resistant to corrosion caused by moisture and road salt. This not only prolongs their lifespan but also makes maintenance easier as dirt and dust can be easily wiped off during routine cleaning.


Deterrent against theft

Unique coloured brake calipers make it easier for owners and law enforcement agencies to identify stolen vehicles as they provide an additional visual distinctive feature that sets them apart from stock models.


Improved brake performance

While caliper painting does not directly affect the functionality of brake systems, the process often involves inspecting and cleaning the calipers thoroughly. This ensures optimal performance by removing any debris or corrosion that may hinder proper brake operation.

Understanding brake calipers

When we think of a vehicle’s braking system, our minds often go straight to the brake pads or rotors, forgetting about a crucial component: the caliper. Calipers play a vital role in ensuring smooth and efficient braking performance. They are responsible for applying pressure to the brake pads, which in turn clamp down on the rotor, creating the necessary friction to slow down or stop the vehicle.

Calipers come in various types, each with its own design and functional characteristics tailored for specific purposes. The most common types include fixed calipers, sliding calipers, and floating calipers.

Understanding calipers goes beyond their outward appearance; it delves into their integral role in a vehicle’s braking system. Different types of calipers offer distinct advantages in terms of stability, force distribution, and braking efficiency

Furthermore, the choice of materials used in manufacturing calipers determines their durability and performance under extreme conditions. Next time you step on the brake pedal and feel the reassuring bite of your vehicle’s brakes, take a moment to appreciate the often-overlooked heroes behind that experience: your trusty calipers.
