After Glo Photoluminescent Paint

Sept. 29, 2021

After Glo Photoluminescent Paint AG110, a phosphorescent coating, makes the tips of propeller blades and tail rotor blades visible in dark and low-light operations. The “glow-in-the-dark” safety coating system, which was developed under a U.S. Naval Air Systems Command contract as a partnership between Sherwin-Williams Aerospace Coatings and Defense Holdings Inc. for use on aircraft on Naval carriers, now is available for the first time in the civilian aviation market.

Defense Holdings, Inc., developed the pigments for the three-part coating system developed and manufactured by Sherwin-Williams. The system includes a white polyurethane basecoat, followed by the green, photoluminescent (PL) layer that’s topped with a clearcoat. The coating system is designed for visual acuity of stationary and rotating objects in night and low-light operations.

The After Glo coating system “charges” in the sunlight and delivers, in the dark, a steady, eight-hour glow that’s visible from up to 40 feet. The three-part system also provides excellent hardness and impact resistance. It can be applied using conventional air spray, HVLP, electrostatic airspray or air-assisted airless equipment.
