Gloss Epoxy and Hardener
Gloss Epoxy is usually used as a top coat to protect the painted surface beneath it. When both parts (epoxy and hardener) are mixed together, they set within 12 hours to form a very tough clear protective coating. By adding Glow Powder to the Epoxy, we have an all weather proof Glow in the Dark Epoxy Paint.
The paints mentioned above are what we use to mix Glow powder in. These paints dry clear in their unmixed state, but when mixed with glow powder, they take on the colour of the glow powder. All our paints dry to a gloss finish.

The finished painted surface may be rough to the touch due to the particles of the glow pigment. This can be resolved by applying a clear coat over the finished surface. By doing so, it also adds a layer of protection to the glow painting.
