AMJ-400-IG is an inorganic green paint developed for use on spacecraft, satellites and Beta cloth utilized in the manufacture of MLI blankets. A specialized pigment in a silicate binder, AMJ-400-IG can be spray deposited with standard air spray coating equipment or high-volume low-pressure systems to form a bendable inorganic nonspecular green marker coating use on emblems, logos, signs etc. on spacecraft / satellites.
This spacecraft / satellite paint has been thoroughly tested in space, having been flown on the Materials International Space Station Experiment (MISSE).
