IR Absorbing Paint


Looking for a white paint that is IR absorbing for use in a night vision backlit panel. Any info would be appreciated.

Most white pigmented paints will be IR absorbing. Do you have a specific wavelength or spectral band of interest?

In general, paints with a potassium silicate binder will have a higher absorption compared to silicons or epoxys.

White paint is IR reflecting if you want to absorb you have to use flat black paint , the flatter the better .
