MFL2000 Montana Gold Cans Power Orange (Fluoro) 400ml
FLUORESCENT colours: Famous for being able to glow under UV light. This is no exception with the Montana GOLD Fluorescent range. For best results we recommend fluorescent colours to be applied to pre-primed, dry white surfaces (e.g., Shock White i.e.). This will increase luminosity and improve coverage. Applying Montana GOLD clear coats will offer greater UV protection however may hinder the fluorescent effect slightly. In general, fluorescent colours are less lightfast and not resistant to the elements. They are not abrasion proof like other Montana GOLD colour shades.
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 colour under UV light. The best luminosity for fluorescent colours 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 colours in general do not have the same opacity, light fastness, and longevity as normal high pigmented colours. Shake Well!
FAQ – FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT MONTANA FLUORESCENT COLORS
Are GOLD Fluorescent colours like any other Montana GOLD colours?
NO! Fluorescent colour pigments do not exist in nature. As such, all are man-made, synthetic pigments that are not able to withstand exposure to the elements like normal colours. This may lead to less durability, faster fading, or discoloration. This is the case with any fluorescent colour regardless of if in a tube, spray can or other.
Are GOLD Fluorescent colours as light fast as the other colours? Can I protect them?
Fluorescent colours fade faster than other colours during UV exposure. Montana Cans uses UV blockers in our paints to increase their lightfastness and longevity. It is also possible to apply a Montana Varnish over the cured fluorescent colour to protect it even further. Our varnishes also have UV filtering characteristics to protect what they are coating.
Are GOLD Fluorescent colours as opaque as other colours?
No. Fluorescent colours are not as opaque as colours with a natural pigment origin. As such we recommend multiple coats on white or light base colours for best results.
Can I use Montana GOLD Fluorescent colours like any other Montana GOLD?
Yes. Once cured, Montana GOLD Fluorescent colours are intermixable and can be handled, painted over, or re-coated with any other Montana GOLD.
Why do Montana GOLD Fluorescent colours cost more?
Due to no Fluorescent colours existing in nature, it is not easy to create quality fluorescent colours. As such more expensive raw materials and manufacturing processes are required to create the high-quality fluorescent pigments Montana Cans uses.
Do GOLD Fluorescent colours have the same finish as other Montana GOLD colours?
Fluorescent colours have a slightly different finish compared to other Montana GOLD colours. Usually, they are a little more matte, subject to the gloss levels that already existed on the substrate they have been applied to.
How do I get the brightest result?
For best results, it is suggested to apply fluorescent colours onto substrates that are nonporous and coated white before application. Having a white base enables the most amount of light to reflect through the colour, resulting in a brighter fluorescent effect. The more coats applied, the brighter and more long lasting the effect.
Will my Fluorescent colours glow in the dark?
The Montana GOLD Fluorescent colours will glow under UV light. The more coats applied, the greater the effect. For best results, we suggest a dark room or space. Eliminate or decrease the amount of ambient light in the room to increase the glowing effect
Will my Fluorescent colours glow in daylight?
No. UV light is required for the glow in the dark effect. Should you want your paint to glow without UV light, you need to purchase the Montana NIGHTGLOW.
