How it works:
ColourTec - Glow in the Dark is paintable phosphorescent wallpaper of the "AP Pigment" collection. The phosphorescence of the design elements is long-lasting and has been treated with a hydrophobic lotus-effect coating. When painted over with suitable varnishes the paint simply rolls off. By contrast, the open non-woven material absorbs the varnish very well. That means you can decorate the wallpaper with your own particular colour scheme without loss of function.
ColourTec - Glow in the Dark contains long-lasting phosphorescent pigments, which are stimulated by either natural or artificial light. If the lighting fails, the luminous pigments re-emit the absorbed radiation immediately. It improves orientation and speeds up evacuation, facilitating safe and rapid clearing of hazardous areas (e.g. in thick smoke).
ColourTec - Glow in the Dark also scores points with excellent quality, ease of hanging and a multitude of decorating options. Quartz sand has been applied to the wallpaper's surface as an additional highlight. As well as serving its original purpose, it also creates an unusual visual focus.
ColourTec - Glow in the Dark is made in Germany. It complements emergency signage, in accordance with DIN 67510-4 as well as ASR (German Workplace Regulations) A 1.3 and 3.4.
