What these paints should be used for:
What these paints should not be used for:
- This paint is not a road marking paint. (It should only be used on vertical surfaces.)
- This paint is not suitable for painting onto vehicles, bicycles, helmets, clothing or similar applications. It is not usually suitable for sign boards unless these are painted onto a wall or barrier. Sign boards must be in direct line of vehicle lights.
- This paint is not a thermal reflective paint to put on your roof to keep your house cool.
- This paint is not a silver paint that reflects light in all direction i.e. it is not the sort of paint that you paint in vehicle headlights areas during car restoration.
- Please do not confuse "reflective" with "glow-in-the-dark", they are completely different. You can select a Glow-in-the-dark Base Coat to get both glow-in-the-dark and reflective effects.
- The reflectivity of these paints is only visible at the light source when light is shone onto them in a dark environment e.g. at night.
