Albedo100

Reflective Safety Spray

Safe and Seen

This not-far-from-magic reflective spray transforms clothing, helmets—even bikes—into a reflective surface to keep you safe at night.

Albedo100 is Made in the USA and activated when the light hits it. Spray it on hard surfaces (think: bikes, outdoor equipment, wood, and metal) or the textile of jackets and backpacks for high
visibility in the dark.

The non-permanent formula is invisible on your clothes and will last a week or so, while the permanent one dries a matte gray and reflects for up to three months, defying wind, rain, and UV rays.

We had some our bikers here at The Grommet try it out. They appreciated the day-time invisibility. You don’t have to carry extra reflection gear—it’s a lightweight and nimble solution.

Now you can stay safe and transition seamlessly from day to night.

    Hi Brandon - this looks really cool and perfect for my cyclist husband. I always worry about riding in the dark. Looking at the video, you simply spray it on, which is easy. But it also concerned me that the spray may be breathed in. What is the toxicity of the ingredients if breathed in? Also, how easy is it to wash off the skin?

    @Martha Thank you for your feedback and your questions. In terms of breathing the product in, we always recommend spraying it in a well ventilated area. In terms of breathing the product in, you don't need to be concerned about the toxicity as it would be the same as spraying hairspray or an aerosol sunscreen. In terms of washing it off you skin, it comes off by simply scrubbing with a wash cloth.

    How about a non-toxic spray I can put on my dog or cat so that traffic can see THEM?

    @Bonnie You can put this spray on your dog or cat as well as yourself. We have a separate animal version of the spray, but you can also use the non-permanent on your pet if you desire.

    This looks cool! Does it wash out of clothing? leave a stain? Does it leave a residue on hard surfaces, or will it wash off in the rain?

    @Yvonne The Non-Permanent product was specifically designed to be washed out of clothing. It will not leave a stain on your clothes. We have done rigorous testing over the past 5 years to ensure the spray will not damage your clothes. The only thing we recommend is not spraying leather as that material tends to be more sensitive.

    For hard surfaces we recommend the Permanent spray, but that product is a little more industrial in nature an applies grey in color. You can try spraying the non-permanent on some hard surfaces, it just may not adhere as well and it would likely wash off in a hard rain storm. The permanent would not wash off in the rain.

    Yes, I would also like to know if you can spray it on dogs?

    @Mary Yes you can spray it on your pet. You can check out our website or Facebook pages for more images that would show it sprayed on a pet.

    I'm guessing the permanent is exactly as stated...will not wash out, however will the matte grey eventually wear off? The non-permanent washes out and won't stain?

    @Nick The permanent will not wash out as it is the actual glue base that creates the grey color. The non-permanent is designed to wash off of clothes or skin and it will not stain.

    Man I really want to see how this reacts to different types of light (black lights and stage lighting for example). I look at that video and I see ghosts back in the woods on a haunted trail that appear when the headlights hit them, I see something that could be interesting to mummers. this could be some really cool stuff, I may have to but a few cans just to mess around with.

    @gravebane525 These products can be used in various ways, the limits are only to your imagination. We have had art studios and artists paint murals using the spray, some really cool stuff. If you create something please take pictures and videos and share!

    Looks really good. About how much area does a can spray?

  • Brandon
    Brandon – Special Guest
    1/13/2017 12:41 PM

    @susan It depends on how heavy you apply the spray. We find most people apply too much which it just putting unnecessary layers on top of each other. In general, one can will cover anywhere from 60-80 square feet.

    How well does this hold in abrasive conditions? Thinking of marking snow shoes for search and rescue team

    @Nancy The permanent spray would hold up under the conditions you described. Keep in mind as it relates to snow shows, snow already has a high level of reflectivity and our spray will reflect with that same bright white color. Obviously if there is no snow on the ground, this would show up really well.

    Would the permanent work to spray ID such as a phone number on horses and other livestock that need to be turned loose during a disaster? Or is it really too toxic for that?

  • Brandon

    @Nancy We would not recommend spaying the permanent on a horse. You should use our Horse and Pet product for that.

    @Brandon just looked that up on amazon and it states easily washed off with water. That won't work for a disaster situation. You need something that can hold up to heavy rains/floods. Maybe something to think about for R &D?

    Hi Brandon.....would this be a good product to use on Kayaks when paddling at night.?Would it show up with just running lights hitting it, of oncoming boats?? Or does it need to be a bright light to show up??

    @Betsy You should use the permanent product on a kayak. Keep in mind the permanent will change the color of your kayak to grey. Perhaps you could spot spray the kayak so you are not changing the entire look of your equipment.
