FIA Painting Regulations

Our experience over the past years in the painting of Racing Helmets and other professional drivers' helmets has enabled us to reproduce practically every design and colours possible. Each painted helmet is accompanied by an official certificate including a colour picture of the helmet and confirming its conformity with the FIA safety regulations. We offer competitive prices, good delays and a recognized name in this area. Contact Liquid Colour Design if you have any questions or for further information on the official painting service.



Paint can react with helmet shell material and affect its protective capacity. The outer shell of the helmet is constructed of thermo set composite materials and finished with a polyurethane coating. It should only be repainted by an experienced and qualified painter with high quality air drying acrylic or polyurethane enamel. In no case should the helmet be dismantled during painting. Paint requiring heat curing should not be used. Paint penetrating the interior of the helmet can affect the performances of the helmet liner and other components.



No helmet may be modified from its specification as manufactured, except in compliance with instructions approved by the manufacturer and one of the FIA listed standards organisations, which certified the model concerned. Any other modification will render the helmet unacceptable for the requirements of the present article.

Paint can react with helmet shell material and affect its protective capacity ; therefore, where a manufacturer provides guidelines or restrictions on the painting or decoration of helmets, these must be followed, using only paint specified by them (air drying acrylic, polyurethane enamel or others) and preferably a painter having their approval. This is particularly important for injection-moulded shells, which are not usually suitable for painting. The shell being painted should be efficiently masked, as paint penetrating the interior can affect the performance of the helmet liner. Paints requiring heat curing should not be used and any process should not exceed the maximum temperature of conditioning of the helmet in the standard to which it is approved. The manufacturer's instructions should also be consulted for any considerations on the use of stickers and transfers.
