FLUORESCENT colors: Famous for being able to glow under UV light. This is no exception with the Montana GOLD Fluorescent range. For best results we recommend fluorescent colors to be applied to pre-primed, dry white surfaces (e.g. Shock White i.e.). This will increase luminosity and improve coverage. Applying Montana GOLD clear coats will offer greater UV protection however may hinder the fluorescent effect slightly. In general fluorescent colors are less lightfast and not resistant to the elements. They are not abrasion proof like other Montana GOLD color shades.
Instructions for use: For best results, it is recommended that Disco White is applied in thin multiple layers to achieve the highest possible glow effect. To give your project more durability and longevity, apply Montana Varnish in Gloss, Semi Gloss and Matt once the Disco White has completely dried and cured (24 hours). Please note the application of a Montana Varnish will protect and offer greater UV resistance to your project however may result in a slight decrease in brightness of the color under UV light. The best luminosity for fluorescent colors is achieved when applied on to a white undercoated substrate such as Montana GOLD Shock White S9100. Due to their synthetic non-natural orientations, fluorescent colors in general do not have the same opacity, light fastness and longevity as normal high pigmented colors. Shake Well!
FAQ – Frequently asked questions about Montana Fluorescent colors
Are GOLD Fluorescent colors like any other Montana GOLD colors?
NO! Fluorescent color pigments do not exist in nature. As such, all are man-made, synthetic pigments that are not able to withstand exposure to the elements like normal colors. This may lead to less durability, faster fading or discoloration. This is the case with any fluorescent color regardless of if in a tube, spray can or other.
Are GOLD Fluorescent colors as light fast as the other colors? Can I protect them?
Fluorescent colors fade faster then other colors during UV exposure. Montana Cans uses UV blockers in our paints to increase their lightfastness and longevity. It is also possible to apply a Montana Varnish over the cured Fluorescent color to protect it even further. Our varnishes also have UV filtering characteristics to protect what they are coating.

No. Fluorescent colors are not as opaque as colors with a natural pigment origin. As such we recommend multiple coats on white or light base colors for best results.
