Paper Thermometer Announces New Thermolabel for Motorsport Brake Temperature Monitoring

MB-380 label on a yellow brake caliper

We previously highlighted how our temperature labels are used in motor sports applications to monitor brake caliper temperatures. Now Paper Thermometer has a temperature label specifically for the application – the New Motorsport Brake Caliper THERMOLABEL® 380-465°F (Item #: MB-380).

This high temperature indicator will tell you the maximum temperature your brakes have reached. You can use this information to time brake seal replacement and get ahead of future problems before they occur. Is it time for that big brake kit? Do you need to think about increasing air flow to your brakes? The new Motorsport Brake Caliper Thermolabel themp strips can help answer these questions.

Another use is selecting brake fluid and pads. Temperatures that exceed the operating range of your brake fluid can cause fluid vaporization leading to fade or loss of brake pedal. Overheating can also cause premature failure of brake pads.

By monitoring your brake temperature on the track you can prolong brake life and get peak performance out of your equipment. Try out the New Motorsport Brake Caliper THERMOLABEL® today. For wholesale opportunities please contact

The temperature indicator strip is applied directly on each caliper to measure the maximum temperature each brake is reaching.

  1. Locate a smooth machined area on the face of each caliper and clean to remove all grease and dust. Allow surface to dry completely.
  2. Press firmly to adhere temperature label.
  3. Run vehicle on track or street.
  4. The temperature sensitive elements will turn black as the rated temperature is reached. The highest temperature reached will be between the last black temperature element and the first unchanged temperature element.
  5. Allow to cool to the touch before slowly peeling the label off the caliper to avoid leaving adhesive residue.
Brake Temperature Guidelines

Temperature Guidelines
Below 380°F - Safe and normal running temperature, not registering on label
380-435°F - Running hot but still OK, inspect and change seals more frequently
450°F and above – Running very hot, replace seals and inspect immediately
