Montana Gold FLUORESCENT Colour Cans 400ml

Montana Gold Spray Cans 400ml - Fluorescent

Montana GOLD spray paint is renowned for it's brilliant fluorescent colors that not only radiate by day, but also glow warmly by night under UV light. Now there is a new color to the fluorescent range which has an added feature. The new Disco White F9100 appears like any other neutral white by day and becomes an eye catching fluorescent like glow by night color, under UV light! Single elements or objects can appear tastefully white in daylight, but by night stunning features under UV light. Easy and clean application is achieved thanks to the much loved low pressure valve system as with the whole Montana GOLD range. Highest quality made in Germany!

 Instructions for use: For best results, it is recommended that Disco White is applied in thin multiple layers to achieve the highest possible glow effect. To give your project more durability and longevity, apply Montana Varnish in Gloss, Semi Gloss and Matt once the Disco White has completely dried and cured (24 hours). Please note the application of a Montana Varnish will protect and offer greater UV resistance to your project however may result in a slight decrease in brightness of the color under UV light. The best luminosity for fluorescent colors is achieved when applied on to a white undercoated substrate such as Montana GOLD Shock White S9100. Due to their synthetic non-natural orientations, fluorescent colors in general do not have the same opacity, light fastness and longevity as normal high pigmented colors. Shake Well!
