Reflective material for buoys

Hello everyone,

right now, we are testing our buoy recognition system. We are using optical sensors with red light and encountered some problems. The system works fine with red buoys/cups. But when we try to recognize the green buoys, the sensor fails. We assume the error occurs the green buoys absorbs the red light almost completly.

We it be legal to insert some kind of tape etc. into the buoy?
