The fluorescent paints have the extraordinary capacity to reflect more light than they receive.
Thanks to its highly saturated colour an object that was painted in fluorescent and put among other objects, will immediately capture people's attention.
The automotive 1K paints from the manufacturer DeepField, are mono-component (ready to use) solvent based painst to clear. They are easily applied in a few passes with a spray gun. They can be thinned with any type of thinner. Fluorescent colours being transparent, they must always be applied over a white background.
Colours lifetime: In order to extend their lifetime, we strongly recommend to apply our aniti UV topcoat (section CLEARCOATS) that protects efficiently the paints from sun rays. Without that UV protection, a fluorescent paint can last up to 3 years before to fade.
There is also the nano-ceramic protective coating, which is a very effective against UVs: this product forms a layer of glass when drying, the more layer is applied the more protection is great.
Tips for keeping the intensity of fluorescence as long as possible are mainly to apply as many layers of fluorescent as possible, in order to create a significant thickness.
Interesting information: According to a study, the most visible colours to the human eye during the day are YELLOW and ORANGE. And before the night falls, it’s GREEN.

Advice: the thicker the fluorescent coat, the longer will be its lifetime
Adding 5% of any hardener to the body's fluorescent paint will result in slower drying and better curing.
