What are Montana BLACK INFRA colors?
Note: Always test beforehand, if surface/material is compatible!
Montana BLACK INFRA colors are the flourescent colors for the Montana BLACK range. They are optimised for opacity and coverage as apposed to the Montana GOLD FLUORESCENT colors that are optimised for color purity and intensity.
Are INFRA colors like any other Montana BLACK colors?
NO! Fluorescent color 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 colors. This may lead to less durability, faster fading or discoloration.
Are Fluorescent colors as light fast as the other colors? Can I protect them?
Fluorescent colors fade faster then other colors 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 color to protect it even further.
Are Fluoresent colors as opaque as other colors?
Montana BLACK INFRA colors are optimised for opacity and coverage. Generally fluorescent colors are not as opaque as colors with a natural pigment origin. As such we recommend multiple coats on white or light base colors for best results.
Can I use Montana BLACK INFRA colors like any other Montana BLACK?
Yes. Once cured, INFRA colors are intermixable and can be handled, painted over or re-coated with any other Montana BLACK color.
Why do Fluorescent colors cost more?
Due to no Fluorescent colors existing in nature, it is not easy to create quality Fluorescent colors. As such more expensive raw materials and manufacturing processes are required to create the high quality Flourescent pigments Montana Cans uses.
Do Fluorescent colors have the same finish as other Montana GOLD colors?
Fluorescent colors have a slightly different finish compared to other Montana GOLD colors. Usually they are a little more matte, subject to the gloss levels that already existed on the substrate they have been applied to.
Will my Fluorescent colors glow in the dark?
The Montana BLACK INFRA colors 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 colors glow in daylight?
No. UV light is required for the glow in the dar effect. Should you want your paint to glow without UV light, you need to purchase the Montana Night Glow.
