Q. I’m looking for a paint/lacquer/varnish, that is preferably spray-on that will reflect an IR (infrared) light. It is to be applied on a moving machine hence spray rather than brush on. The machine will then hopefully be visible to an IR sensitive camera. Do you have or know of a product that would be suitable for this? D. G.
A. Certain military coating are invisible to infra-red radiation. It is the policy of Painting Clinic not to give specific product names. I suggest you contact suppliers of these coatings listed under Coatings, military and government specification on page 272, of the 2006 PRODUCTS FINISHING DIRECTORY AND TECHNOLOGY GUIDE (www.pfonline.com/suppliers.html).
