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.

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 (preferably by spray-gun). 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.
Do's & Dont's
STARGLOW Reflective Paint is not like ordinary paint so here are the main do’s and don’ts:

- Stir really well before each and every use.
- Ensure the surface is clean, dry and free from bits, oil and grease.
- Apply only ONE THIN UNIFORM COAT by Spray gun or roller where possible.
- Consider the relative height and positions of the light source to be reflected and the the viewer.
- Be sure to read ‘How to use our paint‘ to understand the nature and limitations of the paint.
- If unsure, email or call our Expert Helpline to discuss any specific application you may have.
- Apply the paint to surfaces not prepared to receive paint!
- Apply too thick a layer. If the coat is too thick it will not work!
- Apply any form of protective coating on top of a reflective layer!

- THICK – A Custard-like consistency suitable for dipping or dabbing as well as brush application.

EU & International Orders
As of July 1st 2021 there are new EU rules on how VAT is charged for online / web orders. As a result, orders originating from any EU country below a net value of 150 Euros / £135 will now have VAT added at the prevailing rate of that country. We therefore have a £136 Minimum Order Value for Private (Non-Business) EU orders.
NOTE: Whilst we will not add VAT to your order, VAT and Customs charges will be payable once the goods have arrived in your country.
EU Businesses with a verifiable VAT and EORI number will not be affected by this change and may contact us directly if they need to place an order below £136 net, however, we do have a standard £50 net Minimum Order Value for ALL EU and International orders.
We will only ship EU and International orders at the Buyers risk. Once the goods are handed over to the courier they become the buyers property and responsibility.
For reasons of security and speed, we only ship EU and International orders via Express Courier. Delivery charges are calculated at checkout.
