Detailed Application Instructions
PaintSystem has a shelf life of six months and must be used between 56-70°F (13-21°C). Higher temperatures will cause paint to harden faster than normal. Once the paint and reactor are mixed, there are only 4-6 hours working time. After that, paint left in the can will harden and will not be useable. Plan application accordingly.
Also, reactor jar may be difficult to open. DO NOT use channel locks, vises, etc. to open glass jars. If lid is tight, run under hot water for 5 minutes, then open by hand.
Read all instructions prior to applying!

Note: Product use is at own risk. G2 is not liable or responsible for any damage or injuries resulting from failure to comply with these instructions. G2 is also not liable for any damage or injury to vehicle or persons incurred during preparation, application, and/or curing of this product. This product cannot be used for brake discs, pads or shoes. Should the product come into contact with any of those parts, the paint must be removed immediately or the part must be replaced.
Caution: Only open cans immediately before use. Apply and use product only in dust-free, well-ventilated area. Working temperature must be between 56 - 70°F. Once mixed, the G2 Brake Caliper PaintSystem cannot be stored and must be used immediately - once mixed, there are only between 4-6 hrs. working time with the paint depending on ambient temperature. Plan the application process accordingly. Also, brake dust may contain asbestos. Wear safety clothing and a face mask while cleaning calipers.
1. Remove all four wheels from the vehicle. This product was developed for easy DIY application so removal of calipers and/or drums will not be necessary; however, if you intend to paint inside the calipers, the brake pads may have to be removed before continuing.
2. Clean surfaces to be painted of grease, dirt, oil and any fluids with the enclosed G2 Brake Cleaner Spray. Use no degreasers! Spray should be applied liberally and allowed to air dry. Please read and follow specific instructions and cautions on can. Use a steel brush to loosen any rust and wipe away with a clean, lint free cloth.
- Masking of the area to be painted is recommended. Cover all rubber parts and the brake bleeder screw.
- Do not paint the mating surfaces where the road wheels attach to the brake drums. The wheel's mounting hub diameter should be measured and masked off on the brake drum prior to painting.
1. Mix the entire jar of PaintSystem Reactor into the can of Brake Caliper Paint and mix it thoroughly with the enclosed stir stick. Leave the mixture to react for about 5 minutes and mix once more before applying.
2. Apply the reacted paint to the caliper or drum with the enclosed brush in a thin, even coat. A few bubbles will naturally appear in the first coat as a side effect of the reaction process.
3. Wait 15 minutes before applying a second coat to cover any bubbles and even out the gloss finish of each caliper.
The paint requires 2 hours' curing time before reinstalling the wheels. Do not use vehicle for 24 hours in order to allow the paint to reach its full grade of hardening.
Care and Maintenance
After the paint has fully cured, the vehicle may be driven as normal. Periodically clean brake calipers to maintain the high-gloss finish by simply spraying or wiping them off with a hose or damp cloth. Chemical cleaners will no longer be necessary.
