Note on fluorescent technology. The term color is used to describe any segment of the white light spectrum, which comprises the range visible to the un-aided eye. Regular pigments reflect some portion of the visible light and absorbs the rest of the spectrum, releasing it as heat. Our daylight fluorescent pigments take that extra energy and convert to light instead of heat. This creates amazing effects whereby our pigments seem to glow in regular lighting conditions.

How to Use:
Commercial: Please contact us with your project specifications and one of our technicians will be able help with more detailed information.
Non-Commercial: Simply mix the pigment into your medium of choice such as paint, ink, plastic, rubber, clay, etc. Always work under black light so that you can visualize the exact result while you create the product. A good starting ratio is around 2-20% percent by weight. The way most people use this for personal use is to just add enough until you get the desired effect. The clearer the medium the less you will need to use but this also depends on what you are trying to accomplish. For instance, if you are making fluorescent Orange clay then adding a small amount will give you a nice vivid Orange. If you wanted to make a fluorescent Orange paint starting from a clear base, then you will need to add more so that the paint will have hiding power. You can also mix our visible color pigments to create other hues, but keep in mind you are mixing light, not colors. You might not always get the same results as you expect, creating a fun project with amazing results.
Can I use the PF-33 UV Orange series in paint for a racer car?Yes the PF-33 and PF-38 can be used for a bright orange colorant. The enamel paint should be fine, I would mix before using and not let it sit for a long period of time. The PF-38 is a different color, the PF-33 Clownfish orange is the typical orange and would be the recommendation for the car. Mixing would be about 5-15% by weight using a clear (non-pigmented, ie no added color) base paint.
