Prepare surface to be painted by cleaning and ensuring it is free of debris, greases, oils and corrosion using Eastwood’s PRE painting prep. Once sufficiently cleaned, abrade all surfaces to be coated for adhesion purposes, then reclean to remove all sanding debris and any other surface contaminants which may remain.



Eastwood’s High-Temp Ceramic Caliper Paints are packaged ready for use. For further improved sprayability, flow and leveling (especially in warmer temperatures), paint may be reduced by up to 10% with a high-quality urethane-grade reducer.

For even greater durability and chemical resistance with a faster dry time and throughcure, blend High-Temp Ceramic Caliper Paint with Eastwood’s 4:1 Urethane Activator (21845ZP). Mix four parts Caliper Paint to one part Activator and stir well.

NOTE: Due to the density of the ceramic nano-particles, can should be shaken and stirred well before using.



High-Temp Ceramic Caliper Paint may be spray applied, or brushed onto the surface.

Apply in two medium wet coats, waiting at least 20 minutes between coats. If waiting more than four hours between coats, then wait at least 24 hours prior to recoating. If the optional activator was used and more than 24 hours have passed since previous coat was applied, surface must be scuffed prior to application of a new coat. Ideal painting conditions are low humidity and surface temperatures of 70°F. Curing times will vary depending on temperature, humidity, and the use of optional Urethane Activator.




Make sure all containers are sealed tightly immediately after each use. Gun and equipment may be cleaned with a Gun Wash or other appropriate solvent.
