About Infrared Paint
Infrared paint has so many different applications, from the amusing to the serious. This paint is designed to be visible under infrared light, making it useful for everything from military settings — in which infrared light is used for night vision and other purposes — to security and even fun. Retailers can protect themselves from barcode theft by covering their products' barcodes with black infrared paint. Barcode scanners use infrared light, so the code will still be scannable, but thieves will not be able to copy the bar code in order to swap it out for the code on a more expensive item. Infrared, IR, paint can also be used to encode secret messages and do other playful things and require the use of IR light. This paint comes in different colors, including paint that appears black in regular light but shines with a silvery hue when viewed under infrared. There are also some paints that appear clear under normal light. There is a vast inventory of infrared paint on eBay. This inventory may include the paint itself or infrared accessories for painting, including curing lamps that use infrared light to cure certain kinds of paint.
