How many glow in the dark colours are available?

There are four standard Glow in the Dark colours. Green has the longest and most intense illumination, followed by Aqua, then Blue, then Red. All Glow colours have variations, of the colours, depending on the day colour and series of pigment. We can also mix the colours to produce a white glow, but it has a very low illumination.

What are the main differences between Glow in the Dark pigments and UV black light pigments?

Glow in the Dark pigments charge under light and continually glow when light is removed until they are completely discharged. UV Black light pigments only glow when exposed to a UV black light. Remove the black light and the UV Black light pigments stop illuminating.

I want to build a Glow in the dark Aquarium, but was informed that polyester resin might leech into the aquarium water and kill my fish. Is this true.?

We have been informed by our supplier of Polyester resin that once the Polyester resin is fully cured, (about 14 days in Australia), it is safe to use. They gave the examples of fibreglass water tanks and swimming pools not leeching into the pool water.

Do you sell any products that will help with room navigation, in electrical blackouts?

At present we do not have any products specifically designed for the above purpose, but we reccommend to interest people to mix clear Polyester resin with Premium Green Glow in the Dark Pigments on a disc about 300mm in diameter. If this glow in the dark disc is left in an area where it has access to light, (so it can charge), if there is a blackout, or the lights are turned out, the disc will produce enough illumination to help with safe navigation of that room. As an added bonus you could also carry the disc into other rooms as you need to move about.

Maybe these discs should be compulsary in underground coal mines, and used for emergency situations.

How do I know if I am purchasing the correct glow pigments for my project?

The most important thing to remember when purchasing Glow in the Dark pigments is that water based mediums have to be used with the "W" series Glow in the dark pigments. Other important information to be considered are, clear mediums make the best glow, Green glow pigments glow best, and you are advised to use a white undercoat of paint if painting on glow pigments.
