Fluorescent pigments are unique pigments that produce brighter and more vivid colours than traditional pigments when exposed to light. They are activated by UV light and are known as UV fluorescent pigments. When exposed to abundant UV light, such as in black light, they produce bright and eye-catching colours. Fluorescent-coloured objects are seen three times earlier than objects coloured with conventional pigments because of the fluorescent light. These pigments are used in various industries, including cosmetics, sportswear, stationary, warning signs, safety gear, packaging, and advertising.
Daylight Fluorescent Pigments (DFPs) are pigments stimulated by daylight to fluoresce, giving bright colours that can be used in various applications. They consist of fluorescent dyes encapsulated in resins or polymers to create fluorescent pigment powders. DFPs should have some essential features, such as pigment luminosity, heat and light stability, solvent and water resistance, to be as efficient as fluorescent pigments. For some applications, other features such as opacity or transparency may also need to be considered.
Fluorescence is a type of luminescence that occurs when a molecule absorbs a photon of light and its energy and then re-emits a photon of lower energy and higher wavelength. To understand why fluorescence occurs, it is essential to know that atoms comprise a net positive nucleus, which holds negative electrons in place. The electrons are held in discrete energy levels. When molecules form, new energy levels, known as orbitals, are formed in which the electrons can exist. When energy is put into the system, a molecule is said to be excited and will quickly undergo processes that emit energy from the system to return it to the ground state. One such process is fluorescence.
