Technical Information Alu Wheel Paint

For lacquering and repair works in the most current aluminium shades, especially for alloy rims. With the colours arctic, argento, viper and quartz almost all usual colors of considerable rim manufacturers are covered.

Optimal adhesion of the lacquer you'll achieve by using MoTip Primer before lacquering.

To protect the metal pigments in the lacquer, we recommend to seal the metallic lacquer with MoTip 2-Coat Clear Lacquer.

Instruction manuel

The most MoTip spray paints have a so-called no-spray ring or a tamper-proof cap. This is to avoid unauthorized use. Please see the corresponding advises on the cap or on the label.
Before use, carefully read and observe the warning texts on the label!

Preparation of the ground:

  • Carefully clean rims from dirt, fat and brake-dust. 
  • Treat existing pore rust with presto Deruster.
  • The ground has to be sanded, clean, dry and fat-free.
  • Mask off the rim edges with masking tape.
  • Use paper to protect surrounding area from spray-dust.
  • Prime with MoTip Primer.
  • After drying, slightly sand (sanding paper grain P600)



  • Before use, shake the can vigorously for 3 minutes.
  • Test spray to check colour-matching.
  • Spray several thin coats in 3 - 5 minute intervals from a distance of approx. 25 cm.
  • After 30 minutes drying time, coat with MoTip 2-Coat Clear Lacquer to protect the metal pigments in the lacquer.
  • Do not spray over synthetic paints!

Tips for spray painting

Protect the object and the surrounding area from spray mist. When painting small areas it is recommended that a piece of card is used as a mask, with a hole cut in it slightly larger than the area to be sprayed. The mask should be held 1 to 2 cm from the surface. With this method, the mainly part of the spray mist is brought under control. It recommends to mask parts not to be lacquered, to protect the surrounding against the spray mist.

The aerosol can should have room temperature.

Temperature should range between +10°C and +25°C, max. air humidity 60 %.

Store in a dry place. Protect from direct sunlight and other sources of heat. Use only during dry weather, in places protected from the wind, and in well-ventilated rooms. Follow the warning texts on the labels!
