What was the price you found in the US? I can buy it in germany for 19€ 25€ by linear meter (48" wide). Depending on your curiousity I would send you a linear meter of each as a gift...

I could only find it being exported / offered by the 25 meter Roll, which is why I deemed it expensive. There may be a Vendor or Supply House that will cut-to-order but I could find no link to such via my initial search.

Absolutely I'm curious....it would be, is pretty narrow minded to dismiss anything out of hand without a complete examination. Goodness knows enough people have done so on here with something as simple as paint. rolleyes.gif

You know guys, next Monday will make this thread 6 MONTHS OLD eek.gifeek.gifeek.gif . Don't know about others on here but I'm wondering if it's going to be a year before we see some "Silver Fire FX" samples up here and a working formula for use to take a shot at it, lol biggrin.gifbiggrin.gif . How are things going with the formula and did you get the extra spray parts to pb_maxxx so he can begin spraying??Any idea when we might get the chance to see some pics of this screen in action???

I'm thinking perhaps that commercial implications are behind the silence here. Wouldn't mind if that were the case, but would love to know for sure.

No....it is probably some personal or work related reasons that PB- Maxx has not had the time to proceed with the experimentation. I sent him what was necessary to move forward.

You could certainly build such a screen, but because it is a specific project it would be best if you alter a dedicated thread

This thread hasn't been active for a bit. Hows the progress going for the screen? Any idea on when we'll get to see some samples posted?

There's something going on in the background that we're not aware of - might be that "commercial" thing hinted at in an earlier post.

Nope. Besides, that "hint" wasn't a Hint...it was merely some personal conjecture by Dennis.....nothing such as been remotely expressed, implied, or "hinted" at by PB or myself.

The "background" is that PB is busy working his "real" job to make money to take care of his Twin Daughters and his older Daughter. He will get around to it...his further experimentation, but until then I would not expect any sudden revelations to be forthcoming.

It's all good.

This purported application is simply a Hybrid that will try to substitute one thing for another....

Personally speaking, at this conjecture I would not wait or delay any plans as the available alternatives are already exceptional.

One thing you can always be certain of....if I come on and lay down something new myself, it will already have been tested in the Real World...full sized....and there will be no waiting for a "reveal".

But as mentioned before, cut PB slack as family issues must always come first.

I have my eyes keenly on this thread as it appears to be exactly what I need. I am practically going crazy exploring every dark screen paint option out there and every single time I keep coming right back to silverfire. But my concern with the current silverfire v2.5 mix is that I feel like I am crazy or excessive when I say am trying to go for a 7.0-12.0 (if possible) mix.

Sigh, maybe I just wait for this one... I have so far already been waiting for almost a year so maybe another year won't kill me.


After all the research I have been doing towards making my own black screen I think I have a pretty good idea how this SF FX model will work. And it holds some similarities to what I am planning on doing.

The base mix is probably going to be reflective components mix. The UPW is probably what is gonna get axed.. Then I have no idea what will be the fusion coat. Probably something extremely translucent Maybe polyurethane. The the top coat will be the color components and the added component to this would be something that will result in this mix ending up as a very deep shade of grey.

In my application I am basically using starting with a diffuse reflective film and painting the silver reflective mix on that. Then just painting the top coat black. Plan on spraying 4 coats of the silver mix and 2-3 coats of the black paint. I considered making a super dark grey mix using colorants but I have zero experience mixing paints and would have no clue on what I was doing lol. But if I could I would have preferred making a super dark grey mix from the colorants, something like N2/3 grey.
