This paint has a high solids content in order to dry quickly when applied. The solids can settle out of the solution after sitting for long periods. If this happens, simply re-mix the paint, adding a small amount of lacquer thinner if necessary.
* Because this paint is marketed for use with racing brake pads which generally operate below about 900C, these colors are not shown on the label.
