Veil Anti Laser Stealth CoatingItem # HN-VCO001
A radar detector isn't enough! Even radar detector manufacturers acknowledge their products alone won't provide advanced warning to police laser speed traps. Beat speeding tickets before they happen. Become a STEALTH driver! Veil will treat up to 8-10 vehicles or one vehicle 8-10 times equating to less than $10 per vehicle.
Anti Laser Stealth Coating
VEIL™ was developed to complement the performance of radar detectors and laser jammers. So unique, it has foreign and domestic patents pending.
VEIL is a stealth coating that effectively absorbs LIDAR energy. A car so treated will be harder to target with laser, provide its user with more time to react to a detector's alert and to safely slow down while being targeted, thereby increasing the likelihood of avoiding a speeding ticket.
VEIL is the first truly effective passive laser countermeasure that reduces your chances of being ticketed with police laser (LIDAR).
VEIL is a laser absorbent stealth paint whose purpose is to hamper LIDAR's ability to obtain a speed reading, at a typical targeting distance of 800-1300 feet (240m-400m). Reductions of the effective targeting range can exceed 50% or 700 feet (210m). That equates to about 7 seconds of reaction time at 70mph (120kph) and about 10 seconds at 50mph (85kph), allowing those VEILed more time to slow down.
Version G-4 (4th generation) is all we sell
VEIL eliminates the components that contribute to a vehicle's overall visual signature by reducing NIR (near-infrared) laser light reflections. The treated areas will appear BLACK to the laser gun.
Works for all vehicles
Even if you drive a light colored car, VEIL will decrease LIDAR's effective range since it "subtracts", masks, or blacks out reflective areas of the car (its lights and plate) from light areas of the car (its painted surfaces). This is especially true with vehicles that have large front headlight systems such as the Dodge Intrepid, Toyota Camry, Ford Taurus, and most Hondas.
Since VEIL is an optical countermeasure that reduces the amount of the reflected laser light, its performance is unaffected by these newer and more capable guns. When used in this manner, your radar laser detector will actually be of some value as it will no longer be just a "ticket notifier."
VEIL is applied with a paint brush (which is provided) just like you would any other kind of paint. It dries to a satin-like finish and forms a weather-resistant film which also serves to protect the lights from road debris. The coating is easily removable with some common consumer household products. VEIL is not designed to be used on the painted surfaces of your vehicle. VEIL Corporation will not be liable for damages to the paint from improper usage.
VEIL is not an active or passive ECM (electronic countermeasure) and, as such, its use will not be detected by the laser operator. ECMs, while oftentimes effective, if not expensive, may alert the officer of their use. Most new LIDAR guns have the ability to detect and inform the officer of certain laser jamming equipment. Additionally, some states and provinces have specifically outlawed the use of laser jamming equipment.
Since VEIL is a stealth coating, it produces no such notification. It will just appear that your vehicle is harder to target at a given distance. This is normal behavior as vehicles vary from one another in their ability to be targeted.
At some point, the officer may likely obtain a valid speed reading, but by then you would have had an ample amount of time to react and SLOW DOWN.
In cases where we have determined that an officer can obtain a reading, it has been reduced to the range of 500-700 feet, depending upon such factors, as the kind of vehicle, the speed at which one travels, the conditions outside, the brand of the laser gun, how the gun is operated, and the skill of the laser operator. Today, most untreated vehicles can be easily targeted at ranges much greater than 1000 feet regardless of their color! At those distances you will not even be able to see the officer! Furthermore, most readings take place in less than two seconds, leaving the driver virtually no time to react when alerted. VEIL reduces that range by making it more difficult for the operator to get a reading and provides you with more time to slow down.
VEIL will not make you immune from traffic enforcement! It is not a license to speed! There is enough other technology in use in traffic enforcement besides laser.
Frequently Asked Questions
Should I use VEIL with a radar laser detector?
Yes. Users of radar laser detectors will benefit the most. VEIL was designed to be used in conjunction with a good laser radar detector since it will provide you with additional reaction time to slow down when alerted by speed laser traffic monitoring.
Can you wash a car that is VEILed?
Yes. VEIL dries to a weather-resistant film that will withstand repeated washings whether done by hand or machine.
How long does VEIL last?
Actual performance will vary depending upon climate. However, we recommend removing and recoating every four to six months during which time, VEIL's tough outer layer serves to protect your lights from the pitting (from road debris) that would normally occur.
What color is VEIL?
The coating appears as a neutral grey. Coated lights will appear somewhat darker and have a color resembling the Xenon HID lighting systems found on some vehicles.
Does VEIL reduce light output?
The neutral color does not noticeably reduce the lumen output of headlight systems. In some cases, you may notice a pleasant bluish-violet hue that is often seen on many vehicles employing a HID lighting system.
How do I apply VEIL to my vehicle?
VEIL is applied with a paint brush to the reflective objects of your vehicle. These include the headlights, fog lights, parking and running lamps. One coating is sufficient on these objects. Use nice long brush strokes in both vertical and horizontal directions finishing with nice long horizontal strokes to minimize streaking. To eliminate sagging, do not over apply. Do not apply during the heat of the day and preferably in the shade. This will allow the coating to set-up properly to a nice and uniform film. Use a soft damp cloth or paper towel to wipe off any excess paint that may get on the vehicle itself as it is easy removable when wet. We recommend purchasing a clear and colorless plastic plate cover that can be obtained at most automotive retail stores as the basis of your plate covers. Coat both sides of the plate covers and allow one side to dry thoroughly before coating the other side. Lay the plate covers flat on a piece of newspaper or paper towel as it dries, preferably indoors. This will ensure the coatings will be smooth. For best results, apply VEIL at least 24 hours prior to any precipitation.
Why not paint the car with VEIL?
VEIL is not intended to be used on your vehicle's painted surfaces. Even if it were feasible to do this, the cost of the materials make this prohibitive. Drivers of light colored and/or metallic painted cars have more viable alternatives if they wish to maximize VEIL's performance. Using a black vehicle bra in combination will go a long way in reducing your vehicle's visibility to LIDAR. In regions permitting their use, an active laser jammer in combination would further obscure these kinds of vehicles from LIDAR detection.
Should I treat the rear of my vehicle?
That really depends upon where you travel. LIDAR speed traps most often occur from the front. If you know that LIDAR is used to target speeders, in your area, from the rear, then it would be advisable. However, we have found that vehicles are more easily targetable from the rear and do not benefit as much from treatment. Users of rear active jammers, however, will benefit. We have seen that even active jammers , can not alone cloak a vehicle reliably in the rear. In this case, using VEIL in addition to a rear active jammer will most certainly improve the performance of the laser jammer.
Moving laser is coming - that is operation of laser from a moving vehicle. When this technology becomes available, expect rear targeting to become more common place. At that time, treating the rear license plate and/or tail lights will become necessary.
