Frequently asked Questions

What type of blacklight works best?

Not all “black-lights” are equal, it must be a wave length in the range of 365nm.  Very important!  Fluorescent type black-lights are typically the best option, LED black lights can work but I would recommend testing. The wrong wave length will change the colors and not be as bright of an effect.  Remember always paint with the blacklight on and the brightness of the effect is determined by the amount Watts of blacklight at the surface, the Inverse Square Rule applies.  A common mistake is to apply way to much ClearNeon to increase the brightness instead of adding brighter “watts” of blacklight.  If you do that you will begin to see color/non invisible in normal light conditions.

Do you accept returns?

We can not accept returns of product due to hazardous shipping regulations.  It is illegal to allow customers to return ship hazardous materials, with out being certified as a hazmat shipper.   We will how ever refund the purchase price for defective products if aerosol fails to spray, fails to function as represented when used as directed following all package instructions, website instructions and  product label.

Is it available in a store near me?

It might be available right around the corner, but we have no way to know who has it in stock. Ask your local stores you may need to give them the web address for ClearNeon.

Can it be applied over latex wall paint?

Clearneon works great on latex wall paint. It works best on semi-gloss, egg shell surfaces. Usually the color of the wall paint will not effect the color of the Clearneon paint. If you put Blue Clearneon on a black wall and it will look the same as if it was on a pink wall.

How much area will a single can cover?

If sprayed on solid a can of spray paint it will cover approx. 48 square feet, or a 1 inch wide line 600 feet long. My experience is the best effects are achieved with line drawings and partial coverage of color.

Can I get it shipped Next Day Air?

Yes: But it can is expensive,  aerosol is considered dangerous goods and is very expensive to ship next day a typical package will cost $120. Whereas UPS ground typical package ranges $7 to $20, plan ahead we ship the same day and in continental USA you will have product within 4 days.

Will it come of my clothes and skin?

Yes, Clearneon can be removed from showering and laundry soap. Test in a non-conspicuous area and follow label instructions.

If I spray it on my wall, I won't see anything in daylight the day, right?

Clearneon is Transparent “see through” like “clear coat lacquer” it has a slight shine to it, so that it will blend in with almost every type of surfaces. It will appear shinny when applied to flat wall paint, but otherwise there is no noticeable color to Clearneon.

Can ClearNeon be applied to plastic like PVC and metal computer cases?

Yes it was formulated for plastic, and works very well on all types of plastics. Surface should be cleaned and free of oil or dirt. Household cleaners or alcohol work well. Try it on wires and fans.
