Reflective paint VS fluorescent paint

2022-08-03 21:24:40

Reflective paint is a kind of paint made of acrylic resin as raw material. It can be well blended with some reflective materials in a certain proportion, so that it can have a certain reflective effect. Reflective paint can be widely used in some signs, is a good indicator paint products. Next, let's take a look at some manufacturers' price recommendations for reflective paints, as well as some of his usage methods, and understand the difference between reflective paints and fluorescent paints.


How to use reflective paint?

Although the reflective paint is widely used, it requires certain skills in its use. If it is used improperly, the reflective effect cannot be achieved or the best reflective effect cannot be achieved. Before using the reflective paint, the surface of the object to be applied must be cleaned, and the surface must be dry. Then shake the reflective paint vigorously evenly, and keep stirring it during use. ensure its uniformity. When using reflective paint, you should choose the relevant primer that matches it, spray the primer on the surface of the object to be applied, and use the reflective paint after the primer is dry. Make sure that the paint film is uniform, not too thin or too thick. thick, so as to achieve a good effect.

The difference between reflective paint and fluorescent paint

Reflection is the directional reflection of incoming light. Because of the orientation, the small divergence means that the viewing angle is small, but the effect within this angle is still stronger than that of fluorescence; fluorescence is to use special colors to change the color spectrum that cannot be observed by the naked eye in daily light to approximate visible colors. , to enhance the eye-catching, such as the common traffic police vest sanitation clothing and the like.

What is the difference between fluorescent paint and reflective paint

The difference between fluorescent paint and reflective paint: different preparation, different application scope and different performance.

1. The preparation of reflective paint and fluorescent paint is different

Fluorescent paint is a water-based paint diluted with tap water. It is mainly used in the field of wall construction. When used, water is used as a diluent, which can be brushed or sprayed. It must be applied on a pure white bottom layer to have a fluorescent effect.

Reflective paint is made of acrylic resin as base material, mixed with a certain proportion of directional reflective material in solvent, and belongs to a new type of reflective paint.


2. The application range of reflective paint and fluorescent paint is different

Fluorescent paint: It has an irreplaceable role in advertising signs, safety signs, traffic guardrails, underground parking lots, dance hall decoration, architectural decoration, fishing gear and other application fields that require bright and bright colors.

Reflective paint: car license plate enlargement, highway isolation fence, cement anti-collision pier, non-instructive road signs, traffic facilities, signs, road signs, road name plates, house numbers, firefighting facilities, bus stop signs, decoration works, special vehicles for public security , engineering rescue vehicles and special vehicles, railway lines, ships, airports, oil fields, coal mines, subways, tunnels and other related fields.

3. The performance of reflective paint and fluorescent paint is different

Fluorescent paint: The paint film is smooth and dry naturally. When the paint is subjected to some form of energy stimulation, it converts the absorbed energy into visible light other than thermal radiation. The paint has good adhesion and good mechanical and physical properties.

Reflective paint: It has high reflectivity, can prevent ultraviolet light wave irradiation, prevent color fade and peel, can resist strong salt spray, acid and alkali resistance. It has high reflectivity, can prevent ultraviolet light wave irradiation, prevent color fade and peel, can resist Strong salt spray, anti-acid and alkali properties.

Optical brighteners can be added since the road marking paint is added after. Under the illumination of the car lights at night, it will show a clear blue and white reflective effect, and can effectively improve the weather resistance of the product in the later stage.

Standard road marking paint, which is to add glass beads, only adding whitening agent is not in line with the standard,

Generally, glass beads are added according to road requirements, about 10% for ordinary roads, and more than 15% for high-speed roads.

In addition, there are paint whitening agents on the market, which can be mixed according to the amount, and phosphors can also be added.


Fluorescent paint can emit light without an external light source or only with this ultraviolet light source, while reflective paint reflects external light sources at a certain angle, and cannot emit light without a light source.

What are the construction standards for reflective paint?

  1. Before construction, the oil, water and dust on the surface of the substrate should be thoroughly removed, and the working surface should be kept dry.

  2. The reflective primer and reflective paint must be stirred evenly before use, and at the same time keep stirring during construction.

  3. The reflective primer of our factory must be used as a primer. After the reflective primer is dry, spray the reflective primer. The best effect is to spray two reflective primers on the cement.

  4. The spray paint film should be evenly thin, the paint film should not be too thick, the thickness should be about 20 microns, otherwise the effect will not be good. Construction standard of road reflective paint

  5. Decontaminate and descale the base layer to be coated, and use emery cloth to remove rust. The coated surface should be smooth and free of moisture and oil.

  6. Apply two coats of fluorescent primer, and then apply two coats of reflective primer after drying as a primer.

  7. Stir the reflective sign paint evenly after opening the can, and use a clean wooden stick or iron stick. After the primer is dry, apply one coat of reflective paint on the dried primer surface, about 2-4 hours apart. After the first coat of reflective paint is dry, apply the second coat of reflective paint.

  8. After the above-mentioned two reflective paints are completely dried, use the reflective varnish I help produce to paint a layer on the surface of the reflective paint. After it is completely cured, the reflective signs can be used.

##Dosage: Dosage of paint = (total painted area/paintable area per kilogram of paint)*(1+loss rate) Paint dosage=painted area*hiding power*0.001 Make sure that each process is dry before proceeding to the next process. Wear rubber gloves when using corrosive paint such as Tianna water.
