The Institute paint is a paint scheme in Fallout 4. It is obtained upon completing the quest Nuclear Family.


The paint scheme is a white base with the Institute logo painted on the chest. It can only be modded on the X-01 power armor. The writing on the back of the armor labels it as "X-01-I P10 POLYMERIZED CASTING MIX C78A18N3G1."

With the addition of the Captain Cosmos Creation Club content, it can also be added to the CC-00 power armor, but does not add any weight. It requires oil x2 and steel x2 per piece painted.

The "Hellfire Power Armor" Creation Club content allows painting the Hellfire power armor.
