‘Powerless illumination‘ has now been developed using the latest in light recycling technology. Due to its unique properties, Glo–X is ideal for use in areas where power is not readily available, but illumination is required.
Let your imagination flow with this acrylic paint designed to make nearly anything glow in the dark.
Some great ideas we have seen already:
- Tent Pegs
- Star Pickets
- Bike Helmets
- Bike Frames
- Bed Frames
- Tent Poles
- Caravan step marker
- Fishing – emits fish catching frequency
- Night guidance
- Boating, fishing and camping
- Hazard safety marking
Glo–X Professional Night Paint is a high quality solvent-based acrylic that is specifically designed to give powerless illumination for 10+ hours after exposure to light. Glo–X Professional Night Paintprovides long lasting safety illumination in power black outs or low light situations.
Glo-X Professional Night Paint provides long lasting safety illumination and is suitable for complete darkness or low light situations such as power black outs. The luminance effect period is dependent on intensity and thickness of paint layer and full luminance level is best achieved in total darkness. To recharge the luminosity, use a strong source of light to load the effect of the paint temporarily (natural or mechanical light source eg sunlight)
Simply spray the object you wish to illuminate to enable visibility ( it is recommended that you apply over a white base coat using multiple layers of ILLUMINATING NIGHT PAINT lacquer onto a primed surface to achieve best result) The luminance-effect is only visible in total darkness without any light sources therefore test luminosity between paint coats until the desired luminance is achieved.
DIRECTIONS FOR USE
The surface must be clean and dry, free from grease, rust and dirt. Protect adjoining surfaces from overspray. For best results apply to a white surface.
STEP 1. Clean with suitable prep wash, solvent, or detergent based cleaner.
STEP 2. Sand the surface with 400-600 grit sand paper.
STEP 3. Wipe and clean the surface area.
STEP 4. Prime the surface with an acrylic based white primer. (for the optimum result use the Glo-X Base Coat primer)
STEP 4. Sand primer with 400-600 grit paper.
STEP 5. Wipe and clean the surface area.
STEP 6. Spray in thin light coats, cover the surface in several even passes, allow to dry, (time to dry will be affected by temperature, humidity and sub-surface)
STEP 7. Apply further coats in the same fashion as step 6 until you reach the desired amount of glow. We recommend 3-4 light coats.
STEP 8. When dry a clear coat of acrylic or 2-pac paint may by applied.
Re-coating: Any time after 20 minutes. Coverage: Up to 2m2 per can, depending on surface and colour used.
Drying: Touch dry in less than 20 minutes under normal conditions.
AFTER SPRAYING: Prevent blocking by turning the can upside down and spraying until clear gas emerges. Also wipe the nozzle clean. Clean up overspray while it is still wet with mineral turps.
FOR THE OPTIMUM ILLUMINATION RESULT A GLO-X BASE COAT MUST BE USED
