How to Apply Reflective Glass beads:
Our Reflective Glass Beads can be applied to freshly painted surfaces or they can be used with a line striping machine that applies the beads evenly on the paint. For small jobs a container with holes in it will work just fine. (salt shaker, etc) You can apply the beads manually by simply sprinkling the beads over the fresh paint. It is important to note that the paint needs to be wet for the beads to stick.
You can figure to use approximately 5 to 6 pounds of glass beads, for every 1 gallon of paint.
Our beads can be used with virtually all types of paint, however, we recommend using a lighter color such as white, orange or yellow.
