Glow / UV Application Discussion / Re: Shoes

There are two ways this can be done.

1) By mixing the glow powder with the material used to mold the soles and then molding the soles.
2) By applying glow paint on the soles itself.

The first method produces a better looking and longer lasting product. But this can only be done during the manufacturing process. If you are looking for a fast and cheaper way to do this, second method is the only way.

Fastest to Glow would be ZS-1. Expose to any light for a few minutes and it will glow. Glow time however is about 150 minutes only.

Brightest and longest glow product would be SLG-1.

Glow powder can withstand temperatures of up to 900 degrees centigrade. Mixing it with pellets is a tricky process. Each pigment grade has a different formula.

Glow in the dark and UV are 2 different products. One works only in the dark and the other only works with a UV light. You have to know what effects you actually want.

Our glow paints are solvent based, slightly rough once dry and can withstand a certain extent of abrasions. but we always recommend applying a layer of epoxy over to extend the lifespan. Doing this inevitably also makes the surface smoother. Not good for flooring unless it is a skating ring.

You might want to consider a new product we have. It is luminous aluminum strips. Manufactured to be able to withstand heavy traffic. This product is much better than paint and it is also slip proof. Product details online at Glow Building Safety.

Glow in the Dark Products / New Additions for Glow in the Dark Powder
« on: July 26, 2011, 03:25:11 AM »
Introducing our two new glow in the dark powders.

1) SLG-4L
2) ZS-1

Both powders have a particle size of 10-15 microns. SLG-4L is an improvement over SLG-4 as it has a glow time of 9 hours (4 hours longer than SLG-4).

ZS-1 is manufactured using different raw materials (Zinc Sulphide). This product is 5 times more sensitive to light as compared to those manufactured with strontium. This product charges up fast even under low light. Disadvantage is that it dis-charges fast too.

Visit our site for more information on our range of glow in the dark powders.

The normal thread is suitable for embroidery on clothes.

Glow thread strong enough to be used on leather or canvas can be produced on demand.

Making your own glow in the dark paint could be as simple as just adding glow powder to clear or transparent paints. But the problem comes when you need to store the paint. Almost all glow paints made in this manner cannot be kept for more than a day as the glow powders would sink to the bottom and harden there.

This is now a thing of the past. With a product called "Viscosity Adjusting Agent", you can now use any clear paint or resin in the market, to produce quality glow in the dark paints.

How to make your own glow in the dark paints.

You have a large image already produced that you want invisible to the naked eye.

Then you have a lady who would be painting herself bit by bit, when she can't see anything.

Last there is going to be a burst of lights and you want the live painting to glow in the dark.

Possible with the use of Glow in the Dark Film.


Procedure

  • Use Glow Film/Sticker as a background. Create your background as big as you want.
  • Get your artist to paint the painting as large as he can on the Glow Film.
  • To make it impossible to see under normal light with the naked eye, paint the image with normal paint, which is similar in color to the Glow Film.
  • Get your actress to do what she does best
  • Expose the glow film to bright lights (preferably Black Lights) for at least 1 minute.
  • The background will glow leaving what the artist painted clearly visible.

General Discussion / Re: Glow in the dark finishing on clothe and shoes

Depends on what sort of finishing you really want. We have clients who have used our Glow Stickers for this purpose. What they did was to cut it into the required shape and stitched it on shoes.

You could also consider the paint but this being solvent, might damage certain types of leather or cloth. Try at your own risk.

If this is a small scale project, my advice would be to use paint. If not, you might want to consider manufacturing glow in the dark plastic knobs using Glow Plastic Pellets.

You could try using glow in the dark stickers for this.

Glow stickers can be easily cut into any shape and size and pasted on most surfaces.

Our two-side glow boards are one piece with both sides coated with glow material. They are not transparent. so the idea of a light behind wont work.

What you require is possible but it has to be specially fabricated. Contact us for a quote.
