Glow in the Dark Powder - Photo Luminous Glow Powder

Glow in the Dark Powder or photo luminous Glow Pigment as it is sometimes called, is the raw material used in the manufacture of all glow in the dark products. We carry the full range of glow in the dark powder pigments. This range is divided into different grades according to glowing brightness, length of glow and color of glow. Our range starts from the lowest grade (20 minutes), to the highest grade, which can glow for more than 15 hours. There are no higher grades than this, at present.

This glow in the dark powder pigment works by absorbing and releasing light energy, in a continuous cycle. When the surrounding is bright, it absorbs light energy and releases this light energy when it is dark.Glow in the Dark Powder

Glow in the dark Powder can be re-charged many times over just by exposing it to any light source, preferably those with Ultra Violet rays like sunlight or UV (black lights). Glow Powder on its own, has a shelf life of more than 10 years.

Glow powder is used for the production of other raw materials or products like:
Glow Paint and Inks for brush painting, spray painting, printing, etc...
Luminous Sticker
for signage, decoration, path markers, etc..
Plastic Masterbatch Pellets
for the production of glow in the dark plastic products
Luminous Thread and Fibre for the production of glow cloth, ropes, carpets, etc..

The most common use of glow powder is to produce glow in the dark paint. This is pretty straight forward as you just have to mix the powder and paint and start painting. As easy as it may sound, some experience and know how is required. The Twilight Glow Paint kit was created for this purpose. It contains the tools and instructions to guide you in the correct method of glow painting.

As mentioned above, glow powder can be used in a wide spectrum of other applications like plastic, glass, thread, etc...
