EJ-510 is a bright white paint consisting of titanium dioxide
pigment and a water soluble paint base selected for excellent
resistance to yellowing and good adhesion.
While primarily intended for coating of blue-emitting plastic
scintillators, EJ-510 employs a blend of pigments selected also
for enhanced reflectivity for longer wavelength scintillators with
This is a diffuse reflector for use on scintillators where the length
is not greater than twice the width. &nbs;
It should not be used on long narrow optical elements.
This brand new paint formulation comprises the most recent advances
in pigment and binder technologies of 1990s.
Other improvements over traditional high reflectance paints are (a)
smoothness of application whether by brusing or spraying and (2)
covering ability -- fewer coats are required to achieve maximum
It is not water soluble after it has thoroughly dried.
EJ-510 should not be used on hygroscopic materials.
Use EJ-520 Reflective Paint where contact with liquid scintillator
EJ-510 is applied by brusing the paint as received or by spraying
after a little thinning with water as required (typically 20%).
Equipment may be cleaned with water and detergent.
