bright idea Glow Safe from White Knight Paints is a water-based, high quality paint that glows for up to 10 hours in the dark for improved safety around the worksite, shed or home. Areas of OH&S concern such as stairs, steps, head-high intrusions and trip hazards, as well as fire extinguishers, keys and torches can all be painted with Glow Safe to make it easy to locate them in the dark or dim light. After priming the surface with a base coat, one to three coats can be applied depending on the ‘glow-time’ required. Three coats will provide a glow for up to 10 hours. Touch-dry in half an hour and able to be recoated after two hours, Glow Safe can be used on virtually any surface.
