STARGLOW Ultra Reflective Paint


A British made, water-based, clear, retro-reflective coating.


NEW IMPROVED FORMULA for even better performance

A premium grade, light-reflecting clear paint / top-coat, made using microscopic glass spheres which when hit by a beam of light, will reflect the light back to its source in the same way a road sign reflects a car headlights. Its solvent-free, water based Polyurethane formulation makes it suitable for indoor or limited outdoor use and it is safe, non-toxic and ECO friendly.

Important Notes

Please read the ‘How to use our paints‘ web page for important information on this product.

Before adopting commercially, prospective users of our products are advised to firstly purchase a sample in order to fully evaluate the product’s suitability for purpose.

Starglow Paints are supplied on a made-to-order basis and large orders may incur a lead time for production. If you have an urgent requirement, please contact us to obtain lead time estimate.

It is not possible to guarantee this paint will be suitable for your application. The retro-reflective nature of this paint when used correctly is a given, what varies is where and how the paint is used, which is different for each and every customer. We strongly recommend you order a sample / tester pot to check if it is suitable for your particular application.

Starglow SMART Paints are essentially decorative in nature and are therefore unsuitable for use as a floor paint or any situation where the paint will be exposed to excessive wear or physical contact.

We do not supply aerosol based paints, however our paints may be used with a good quality spray gun or a suitable airbrush. Where paints require thinning down for use in spray equipment, you may use a little water to achieve this. Only use a little so as not to impair the paints suspension and binding capabilities.

Starglow paints are non-stock items made fresh to order and therefore cannot be returned so please make sure order and test a sample of the paint before ordering a larger size / quantity.

Ensure the surface to be painted is clean and free from oil, grease and dirt.

For best results, apply as single thin coating. Do not over coat nor make the coating too thick, so as it is visible or lumpy to the touch (when dry) as this will prevent the reflective properties from working.

These paints are NOT suitable for use on hair or skin.

Do not allow children to use this product unsupervised.

For for best results use within 6 months of receipt.

10 year Guarantee does not apply to Starglow Paints used externally.

HOW TO TEST: A simple way to test if you have applied the paint correctly is to take a ‘flash-photo’ with your smartphone from roughly 15-20 feet away (4-7m approx).  The flash and the lens of the phone are ideally (closely) positioned to get the best effect from the retro-reflective effect.  If it does not, then either the paint has not been thoroughly mixed, the coating applied is too thick or a second / top-coat has been applied.

Do not apply any form of top coat over a reflective coating as this will nullify the reflective effect.

About Consistency

To ensure your paints are fresh when you receive them, we make them to fresh to order.

We have now further improved our service to include your preference of paint ‘thickness’.

  • THIN  –  A Soup-like consistency, not thickened (thin) best for use in a spray gun or air brush.
  • MEDIUM  –  A Yogurt-like consistency, best all-round choice for most brush or roller applications.
  • THICK –  A Custard-like consistency suitable for dipping or dabbing as well as brush application.

STARGLOW Paints are Made-to-Order and therefore non-refundable and non-returnable.

Therefore we strongly recommend you order a sample to test suitability for your purpose.
