Glow in the Dark Pigments
Glow in the Dark pigments are a powder that absorbs UV light (whether natural or artificial). Once charged (only 30 minutes is needed!), they are their own light source.
In normal daylight, Glow in the Dark pigment will be a pale off-white colour. When subject to a complete lack of light, this pigment will glow whatever exciting colour you choose to purchase! Currently, we have Sky Blue, Aqua, Green and Deep Purple available.
Exposure to any amount of external light will reduce the final glow produced from this product. But in total darkness, our pigments will glow for a maximum of 10 hours.
Glow in the Dark pigments can be combined with clear non-water-based binders or resin. For example, you can use clear varnishes or glues such as PVA. Incorporating SFXC Glow in the Dark pigments with a suitable binder such as these, will enable the light emitting reaction to have the clarity it deserves. Mix 5% of pigment to create a completely clear mixture in daylight. Mix 10% of pigment to create a cloudy mixture in daylight. When added to 10-20% of binder, this pigment is invisible.
Do not apply onto coloured surfaces as this will inhibit the lucidity of the glow in your chosen application.
If preferred, this product can be sprinkled (and sealed) onto your chosen, suitable surface (pale/white) to bring attention to an area of interest in your project.
