General Application Instructions:

Simglo fluorescent paints are semi-transparent and, therefore, brightest when applied over a clean white surface. White semi-gloss enamels, white enamel undercoats, primer-sealers and bulletin blockout whites are ideally suited for this purpose. Over old finishes, apply a white undercoat or primer that offers good adhesion to both the old finish and new Simglo paint. However, best performance can be achieved by removing old finishes and starting with a freshly primed surface.

(A) Use normal precautions such as gloves, facemasks.
(B) Adequate ventilation must be maintained.
