Any type of high heat paint intended for plastics.

There's a really good plastics paint I have heard about called (something that starts with a K) Fusion, or something like that.

Someone else will know what I'm talking about, but I don't know if they sell a high heat version.


Just look at the back of the caliper paint and see if it bonds to plastic.

Yeah, that's it.

I was looking for a high heat version and couldn't find one.

Do they make one?

no, not yet at least.

go to pep boys and find 'engine paint' (it's labelled this)..its up to 1500 temps. if your just painting your plastics then you can use the krylon fuzion..if ur painting ur engine then you obviously want the 1500 degree engine paint thumbsup
