Helmet Paint Information
We use a water-based paint formulated for use on plastics, metals, and other hard surfaces including automotive surfaces when painting our batting helmets. Water-based paints will not harm the plastic of the helmets. Paints that should never be used on plastics, especially batting helmets and other protective gear, are those that contain petroleum products which can deteriorate the plastic and make it unsafe for use.
Pearl red & irredescent red are not recommended for boy's helmets since they have very strong pink/magenta highlights and may be considered too 'girly' for a boy's taste.
