Instructions for Applying Kryptaglow® MEA Certified Glow In The Dark Paint Group System For Exit Path or Egress System Markings
Generally in pholuminescent paints the thicker the coats the better they glow. Our Krytpaglow® #1300 paint has been especially formulated to achieve this in 3 properly applied coats.
Important! Make sure Kryptaglow® paints are well stirred and mixed getting all materials off the bottom of the can. Mix periodically while using to ensure even flow of active ingredients.
They can be applied to any clean prepared surface they will adhere to.
Step 1. Apply Kryptaglow® White Base Coat #1171 to clean prepared surface. 1 or 2 coats as needed using a 4” roller or brush. Achieving consistent white base coat, let dry. We used a 4” roller.
Step 2. Apply 3 generous coats of Kryptaglow® #1300 Glow Paint with a 4 inch trim roller and a ½ inch to ¼ inch nap. 3/8 inch nap will also work and is recommended for easy rolling. First coat dries in 20-30 minutes. Second coat needs longer drying time and the third coat is the longest taking about an hour or longer depending on your conditions.
Step 3. Apply 1 thin coat of Kryptaglow® Protective Top Coat #1102 with a short nap roller. We used a Sure Line 3” Trim Roller. Allow to dry.
All Paints are Latex Water Base and can be cleaned with water.
