FLUORESCENT FOR BODYWORK
Fluorescent paint emits more light than it receives. Here is the secret of the fluorescent colours intensity!
Thus they immediately capture the attention by day or in semi-drakness
Our automotive paints are solvent based (mono-component 1K paint to clear and ready to use) and are applied with spray gun only.
Due to the semi-transparent nature of the paints, it's important to apply them over a perfectly white background, that is paint or primer.
To achieve the white background, it is advisable to use a direct white gloss lacquer or a 2C white primer sanded with P320 / P400 or max P500.
In the 1C paint (matt base) you can add 3 to 5% of any hardener to harden the paint. The white matt base are available here in jar or spray
To this end, you will find white paints on our website (in the sections BASECOATS ors PRIMERS)
Fluorescent colours are more fragile under the sun than classic colours: We thus strongly recommend the use of our special protective anti UV topcoat (to be found in our Section CLEARCOATS) that protects better the paints against UV.
The RAL colour chart is available as a PDF download on the article pages below.
Important: It is stipulated on our website that fluorescent colours should not be unnecessarily exposed to the sun, due to their high sensitivity to the sun's UV rays.
Here are some tips to follow to maintain the brilliance of the colours: Apply our protective top coat for enhanced protection against UVs. Apply a maximum of fluorescent passes (6 coats of paint will have twice the life of 3 coats of paint). And finally, it is clear that your car should not be parked unnecessarily in the sun, as no solution exists to fully protect at 100% these paints.
Longevity of fluorescent colors:
In order to prolong the lifespan of the colors, we strongly recommend the application of our UV varnish (VARNISH section) which protects the paints very effectively from the sun's rays. Without UV protection, a fluorescent paint can lose its color very quickly if it is exposed directly to the sun.
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.
LinaQuartz nano ceramic protection is a powerful UV protection.
Regarding the mixture: our fluorescent automotive paints are solvent-based, ready for use. It may be necessary to add 20-40% thinner to increase their fluidity.
TECHNICAL DATA SHEET
DESTINATION : Car, motorcycle, decoration
ASPECT: Intense semi-transparent colours with matt finish
Theorical coverage: 3 SQM / L
MIX : Product ready to use..
APPLICATION: On a background sand with P320-P500, white imperatively, in a few thin coats and followed until coverage. Varnishing within 15-30 min compulsory.
Warning: It is imperative to apply the transparent clearcoat after 10 to 20 minutes maximum, after applying the fluorescent paint!
RESISTANCE: Sensitive to UV and to the heat above 150°C.
SETTING: Spray gun : Nozzle 1.0 to 1.2mm - Air pressure : 2.5 TO 3.5 bars
DRYING AT 20°C : KEPT FROM DUST: 5 TO 20 MN - TOUCH DRY : 15 TO 30 MN
Advice: It's preferable to have a thick coat to extend the paint lifetime.
Adding 5% of any hardener to the body's fluorescent paint will result in slower drying and better curing.
