We strongly recommend that Schutt® Sports Mfg. Co. or one of it’s approved NAERA member reconditioners apply the new paint, because of the very specific procedures that are required. Please contact Schutt® Sports Customer Service Department for information on approved reconditioner: 1-800-426-9784. If your football helmet has labeling that says ”DO NOT PAINT” please do not attempt to paint it. If your helmet does not say this the approve paints are as follows: Color-Set INC, WURDACK, INC, Sherwin Williams Corp, AKZO/Sikkens, DuPont Corp, & Createx Brand.
