Montana NIGHTGLOW Effect Spray is a high-grade acrylic quality which contains luminescence-pigments, that store light (absorbed energy) and emit the light in darkness. This luminiscence-effect is only visible at total darkness. The period is depending on intensity or irradation and thickness of paint layer (it is recommended to apply multiple layers of NIGHTGLOW paint lacquer on the primed surface). The highest possible degree of shining is immediately after loading the painted object then it fades away. For indoors and outdoors applications. For best glow effects use in a completely dark environment without any light sources. Use a strong source of light to load the effect paint temporarily. The effect spray is suitable for all smooth, rough or light responding primed surfaces. e. g. metal, wood, hard plastics, primed carton, walls etc. We recommend to prime the ground with Montana GOLD Shock WHITE 9100 to achieve best glow effects. Consider longer drying time depending on substrate. Limited resistance to weathering, light and UV-influences. To improve resistance, we recommend to varnish with Montana VARNISH Gloss 400ml. Recommended to use with Montana Fatcaps (e.g. black / orange).
What is Montana NIGHTGLOW 400ml spray and how does it work?
Montana NIGHTGLOW EFFECT 400ml spray is a high pressure, high-grade nitro-acrylic based paint, that contains light emitting luminescent pigments. NIGHTGLOW EFFECT 400ml spray stores light as absorbed energy (charged) and emits that energy (as light), when in total darkness.
How long does Montana NIGHTGLOW EFFECT 400ml spray glow for?
Montana NIGHTGLOW EFFECT 400ml spray emits light for varying periods of time and at varying strengths. The glow effect is subject to the intensity and length of the exposure to light (that charges) and the amount of NIGHTGLOW EFFECT spray applied. The highest emission of light occurs immediately after charging.
How do I get the most glow out of my Montana NIGHTGLOW 400ml spray?
Montana NIGHTGLOW EFFECT 400ml spray works best if applied in thin, even, multiple coats. Pre-primed surfaces that are primed in white or light colors offer the most radiance. We recommend pre-priming with the Montana GOLD color SHOCK WHITE. The stronger the light source used for charging the paint, the greater the emission of light. The NIGHTGLOW effect is best viewed in total darkness, without other light sources.
How do I start using my Montana NIGHTGLOW EFFECT 400ml spray can?
Remove the spray nozzle and turn the can upside down. Strike with your palm allowing safety ring to fall out. Shake vigerously for 2-3 minutes ensuring you can hear the mixing balls moving freely. Replace the cap back onto the top of the can valve and trigger away from substrate to test. If flowing freely you can start painting.
