FAQ

Q: Can Musou Black be used as a car paint? 

 

A: The simple answer is No. We do not recommend painting a car with Musou Black because the paint is fragile and the coating can easily be scratched/peeled off. Top or clear coats may improve its durability however this will decrease Musou Black's darkness. Simply put, Musou Black was never designed to be used as a car paint. If you would like to paint a car, we recommend to do it solely for display purposes and not for long-term use.

 

Q: Can I apply a top or clear coat on top of Musou Black?

 

A: Top or clear coats may improve Musou Black's durability, however this will decrease its "darkness" because light will reflect off of the top or clear coat. If you would like to maximize Musou Black's darkness, then the Musou Black coating needs to be the top layer.

 

Q: What can I do to improve Musou Black's durability?

 

A: Applying a primer beforehand will slightly improve Musou Black's adhesion, however the coating will still be fragile. We are currently researching methods to improve the paint's durability without affecting its darkness. Once we have found something, we will notify the public.

 

Q: Where can I find the Musou Black fabric featured in The Action Lab's video?

 

A: That is actually our Visible Light-absorbing Flock Sheet! You can find more information about it here: VL Flock Sheet. The VL Flock Sheet is available for purchase on our Amazon US, UK, DE, and Japan stores! 

 

Q: Why is the shipping cost expensive?

 

A: Due to the current COVID-19 situation, we unfortunately can only use priority service for overseas shipping. We apologize for the inconvenience and wish for your understanding. 

 

Q: How do I clean the VL/IR Flock Sheet?

 

A: We recommend cleaning our VL/IR Flock Sheet with an adhesive lint-roller or by dry-cleaning. We do not recommend washing as this will most likely decrease its performance.
