Tempilaq Temperature Indicating Paint is used by top teams to document temperatures that are difficult or impossible to measure during actual use. Tempilaq paint has a calibrated melting point that leaves an indication when a specific temperature has been reached. On race cars, they are most useful on brake disks and pads but can also be used on other components such as exhaust systems. To use Tempilaq, apply a thin coating to the test specimen. The paint dries almost instantly with a dull matte finish. If the rated temperature is exceeded during use, the coating will become glossy, thus leaving a permanent indication that the temperature was reached. Kit includes one 2 oz brush top bottle of 850, 950, 1000, 1100 and 1200 (degrees F) temperature indicating paint and one bottle of thinner in a foam-lined plastic case.
We also offer refill bottles of Tempilaq Temperature Indicating Paint separately.
