About
This pure acrylic (water based) paint is almost invisible in normal light and glows vividly under Ultra Violet (UV) light.
Commonly used for security marking and for special effects where UV lights will be used.
 
Suggestions
  • Mark items that you may want to identify later under UV light.
  • Mark items for tamper identification. If then end of your cable was painted but the end no longer glows under UV light then somebody cut some off.
  • Use for secret writing and pictures. Only people with UV light will be able to see it. 
 
Limitations
Not fully invisible on surfaces like glass where it gives a white appearance. 
The active ingredient is damaged by sunlight so it is sold as an interior paint but can be used for short-term exterior applications. Also note that long-term repeat exposure to UV light will reduce the glow strength so using this paint for complex UV artworks, that will be costly to re-do, is not recommended.
