UV Black Light Products all have one thing in common; they all need a UV light source to look their best.

We believe that UV Glow Products are superior in performance in most situations, compared to Photo Luminescent Products, for example Glow In The dark parties, because the colour range is a lot better, and they do not loose their luminance of time, whereas Photo Luminescent Products do.

UV reactive products work on the principle of Fluorescence, which is explained below

Fluorescence explained

Fluorescence is the emission of light by a substance that has absorbed light or other electromagnetic radiation of a different wavelength It is a form of luminescence. In most cases, emitted light has a longer wavelength, and therefore lower energy, than the absorbed radiation.
The most striking examples of fluorescence occur when the absorbed radiation is in the ultraviolet region of the spectrum, and thus invisible to the human eye, and the emitted light is in the visible region. (Reference Wikipedia.org)

Luminescence explained

Luminescence is emission of light by a substance not resulting from heat; it is thus a form of cold body radiation. It can be caused by chemical reactions, electrical energy, subatomic motions, or on a crystal. This distinguishes luminescence from incandescence, which is light emitted by a substance as a result of heating. (Reference Wikipedia.org)
