Professional caliper painting with a trusted brand.

 

Brake caliper painting is a popular add-on service to any detail, ticking another box on the route to perfection. Whether it’s a simple tidy-up in silver to revive rusty bare metal or a complete colour change on a set of 6 pot race calipers, the job is one which can be tackled by most detailers and valeters and is fantastic upsell to any detail.

This course shows you how; tackling the fundamental safety and setup knowledge to work on vehicle brake systems in the most professional and efficient way. Removal of component parts prior to painting, preparation, finishing and refitting for all common brake setups – including electronic handbrakes – with some notable uncommon ones too – are all covered and you will leave with the knowledge and skills to be able to complete the task safely, flawlessly, and confidently.

Foliatec is probably one of the world’s best-known names for aftermarket styling. Their consumer range has for years dominated auto factors, and with their new professional range of caliper paints, together with UK Detailing Academy, they will take you through all the steps necessary for a perfect finish which you can then market to your customers under the “Foliatec Professional” branding.
