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.


  • 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.

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.

Glow in the dark effects do not fade off over time. You can charge and discharge thousands of times and the effects would still be the same. The only time it fades off is when wear and tear occurs and the glow material drops off.

You could try using glow powder SLG-4 for this. It should be mixed with clear mediums.

As the name suggests, Ultra Violet (UV) Light Reactive Products only react to UV (black) lights. Under normal light they appear white. Under a UV light, the change into different colours. Products of this nature are generally used for security identification purposes. They are also widely used for special effects in clubs and discos.

We only carry this product in powder or paint form. Product details like color availability and price can be found at our UV product site.
