Default Volvo Life Paint / Albedo100 reflective sprays

This looks interesting, and it seems that you can buy it now in the US from http://www.albedo100.com/ (follow to http://www.albedo100us.com/). It's not cheap, though; $19 for a 4.6 ounce spray can. In addition to the fabric and metal sprays mentioned below there's also one for fur on animals.


"In the making of this film we used both reflective paint products available from Albedo100. Lifepaint was used on textiles and is water based, and the other Alebdo reflective paint products are for metals and are oil based so not suitable for use on textiles due to permanent nature."


"The paint is transparent and is said to make no noticeable difference to the feel of the material, lasting for around a week once applied. From there, once the user moves in front of a car's headlights, the sprayed material instantly turns to a hot white glow to improve visibility."

"To begin with, free cans of Life Paint will be given away at six bike stores in England. If the product is well received, Volvo plans to eventually make it available internationally."

(Excuse me if this was mentioned elsewhere on BP; if so, I missed it.)
