Other Names

Glow in the dark powder is also known as, Glow in the dark Pigment, and Photo Luminescent Powder

Description

Glow in the dark powder is made from a rare earth material, that mixed with other substances create these glowing powders. The glow effect is known as an after glow. The size of the individual glow powder particles is typically around 40um. As a general rule, the bigger the particle size, the better the after glow.

How They Work

Glow in the dark Powder will absorb light energy, from any reasonable light source, including the sun, fluorescent lights, light bulbs, and UV Black lights. They can store this light energy, if kept in good light conditions, but if these glow in the dark powders are exposed to semi dark, or dark conditions they will discharge the light energy, as a glow effect. This after glow can illuminate the surrounding area. The stronger the light source, the quicker the glow in the dark powder absorbs the light energy.

Mix glow powder with clear mediums for example clear paint base, and Polyester Resin.
You can use White paint bases but this will glower the intensity of the after glow.
