Heat-sensitive, Color-changing Paint

October 4th, 2006

You have probably seen the brake rotors out there with colored markings that indicate their temperature, from companies like DBA and Frozen Rotors. Did you know that you can buy a special paint that has the same color-changing properties? Genesis Technologies makes a paint that has six different color levels, covering 0 – 1239° F. Knowing the rotors’ temperature can help you adjust your system components and/or driving style to where the brakes can operate in their optimum heat range. Just use the supplied brush to paint a mark on the outside edge of the rotor. The paint can also be applied to various other metallic surfaces where approximate temperature readings are desired at a glance. A 1 oz bottle of GB1000 can be found for under $60.
