Frequently asked questions projection screen paint

The MPW 10 package is immediately ready for use. You don't have to add anything to the base paint and top coat yourself. In addition, with the MPW20 package, a black frame can be made around the image.
Both packages are exactly the same. Only the MPW 20 package is suitable for 6m2 and the MPW 30 package is suitable for 11m2. This 11m2 is often sufficient to treat an entire wall, so the screen is 'invisible' on the wall.
Yes, it is also possible to buy a package with which you can make the frame. This MPA 410 package contains the magnetic paint and the magnetic tape needed to make a frame.
No, the projection screen is always a 'grey scale'. You cannot get any contrast on a white screen with a beamer. The MPW10 is very light grey, slightly lighter than RAL 7047. The MPW 20 and MPW 30 get the grey tone (contrast) that is necessary for the room in which the screen is used. By adding the contrast agent to the base paint yourself, you determine how gray the screen becomes.
There are various possibilities. 1) 4 packages of MPW 10 is enough to make 20m2 of standard screen, without frame. This can be purchased separately (MPA410 Frame Kit) 2) 2 packages of MPW 30 is enough to make 22m2 screen, custom made and a frame can be made around the image.
No, but we do have contact with many painting companies in the Netherlands. It is always possible to ask which painting company has experience with painting Mighty Brighty Projection screens.
Only 5 simple questions. Click to download the questionnaire (pdf file).
The Mighty Brighty paint and coating can be kept for about 2 years after opening (if properly closed, dark room, 15-20 degrees Celsius).
We recommend a 2K roller for the BaseCoat and the Topcoat and a short-haired roller for the magnetic paint/Magnecoat.
The MPW 10 package has a contrast value of 2.5 and a gain value of 1.1 and the color is approximately the same as RAL 7047 (mixing ratio 2.5 ContrastBooster and 2.5 BrightnessBooster).
Or, how much gain do I need to project? For home use, a gain value of 1.1 or lower is sufficient. A higher gain ensures that dark colors become grey sooner, which is often at the expense of image quality. For business or educational use, you can opt for a higher gain for a very clear image. The measure by which the gain value is calculated is the extent to which a standard white board reflects light. Normally this is equal to gain 1.0. A screen with gain 1.5 therefore reflects 1.5 times more light than the standard white board. However, the Mighty Brighty Projection screen is never white, but always has a shade of grey. The special 'reflectors' have been incorporated in the topcoat to ensure the gain value of the beamer screen increases.

Frequently asked questions applications

The Mighty Brighty Projection Screen Paint System can be applied to stone, concrete, wood, plastic and plaster and to all materials that have already been treated with a regular wall paint.

MDF walls must be thoroughly degreased beforehand with, for example, benzene or thinner. You should also first treat it with a primer.
The wall should be smooth or almost smooth (if you are 2 to 3 meters from the wall, it should look smooth and even). The smoother the surface, the better the quality of the projection will be.

The Mighty Brighty Projection Screen paint system is best applied at an ambient temperature between 15 and 25 degrees Celsius and a humidity between 40 and 70%. If the ambient temperature and/or air humidity differs, the specified drying and waiting times will be longer. Important: The layers of paint cannot be applied if the ambient temperature is below 5 degrees Celsius.
If the wall is very absorbent, you should first treat it with a primer. The consumption per square meter is partly determined by the type of surface.
If the wall or surface is very dirty (including nicotine, leakage spots) you should first treat it with a good insulating paint.
If the surface has a very dark color, you should first treat it with an ordinary white wall paint.
It is important to follow the instruction step by step and to have patience. Due to the drying times of the various layers of paint, you will be applying the product for about 8 hours (it is of course also possible to spread it over 2 days, use the night as 'drying time').
Do not clean the screen for the first 8 weeks. After 8 weeks you can clean the screen with a soft, lint-free cloth and lukewarm water. Optionally, you can add some mild, liquid soap to this lukewarm water or use Mighty Brighty Clean! Projection Screen.
The Mighty Brighty Projection Screen can be used with any beamer or projector, also 4K or 3D (only active 3D with the glasses on batteries).
The user manual of the MPW 20 and MPW 30 contains a questionnaire of 5 questions. One of the questions is: How much ambient light is there in the projection room? You can choose the answers from: none, a little bit, quite a bit, quite a lot, very much. The resulting values ​​indicate how much ContrastBooster you should add to the paint.
The Mighty Brighty MPW 20 and MPW 30 packages are provided with a black frame which can be placed around the image to be projected, based on magnetic paint. This magnetic paint is applied under the Mighty Brighty Projection screen paint and is therefore invisible. The black magnetic tape can be attached to the wall and easily removed after use. Note: the black Magneborder band can only be applied to the wall 1 week after application of the paint. If you don't wait a week, the force of the magnetic paint and the Magneborder will destroy the paint layer if you want to remove the Magneborder. It is also possible to order the MPA 410 Frame Kit separately with the MPW 10 package or the MPW 445 package.

Mighty Brighty is suitable for active 3D projection (with 3D glasses with batteries).

Helpful Tips for applying Mighty Brighty Projection Screen Paint

1. Inspect the wall carefully and repair any minor damage, scratches or holes beforehand. Then level the wall by lightly sanding it.

2. Shake all products well for 15 seconds before using.

3. A plastic surface cannot absorb any moisture at all. This can temporarily cause small air bubbles to form in the applied paint layer during drying. Do not touch! They disappear automatically when the paint layer dries.

4. If you have the Mighty Brighty MPW 30 package and you choose not to paint the entire wall but a screen on your wall, then you have enough paint left to paint a second projection screen (without MagneCoat and Magneborder) in another room, for example.

5. Check between the layers of paint for any imperfections and, if necessary, sand the wall very lightly and very, very carefully so the last imperfections disappear. When you turn on the projector, you can clearly see where any imperfections and damage are.

6. Always apply the Mighty Brighty Projection Screen paint wet-on-wet. By this we mean the following: Once you have started to apply paint (base or topcoat) it is very important you continue until the paint is fully applied. So don’t stop in the meantime!

7. Make sure that the surface is always properly pre-treated with a primer or primer.

8. Observe at least the recommended intermediate drying times! If the next layer is applied too quickly and the substrate is not completely dry, this layer may be pulled loose during the application of the 2nd layer.
