MAC Posted November 1, 2014 Report Share Posted November 1, 2014 Anyone who paints brake calipers and rotors might be interested in knowing that Plasti Dip appears to work well even on hot brake discs. So far, Plasti Dip is still looking good on the right side front brake caliper and disc, which I painted at least 500-1000 miles ago. This is surprising because Plasti Dip is only rated to 200 degrees. I originally painted the calipers and discs with PlastiKote 500-degree caliper paint but it simply does not stay on discs. It does well on calipers, but not on discs even though its temperature rating is much higher than Plasti Dip. PlastiKote will stay on for a while but then flake and/or burn off, which exposes the disc to rusting. Plasti Dip is rubberized and flexible, which I suspect is why it hasn't flaked off. Just tonight I took a good look at the caliper and disc and sure enough Plasti Dip is still looking good with no visible signs of rust even on the edge of the disc. I thought that by now Plasti Dip would have burned off, but it not only is still there, it basically looks as good as when I first sprayed it on. The real test will be during hot summer months when discs have less cooling ability due to hot weather. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
