Glows in the Dark, Ideal for Disaster Preparedness
(CLEVELAND, April 11, 2003) - When plant safety is a concern, consider Fast Glo Acrylic Safety Marking Paint, new from Sherwin-Williams Industrial and Marine Coatings group. The single component acrylic has a phosphorescent luminescent pigment that enables the paint to glow yellow/green in the dark for up to four hours. Fast Glo is ideal for improving emergency preparedness and is an excellent choice for marking aisle ways, emergency routes, boundaries and stairways to identify safe passageways in the event of a power outage or failure of back-up power systems.
When exposed to artificial light, Fast Glo can rejuvenate its glow-in-the-dark properties in 15 seconds. It can be applied by brush, roll or spray and is conveniently packaged in quart and gallon containers. Fast Glo's durability can be enhanced by applying protective coatings of clear acrylic, clear water-based epoxy or clear moisture cure urethane.
