Difference is in the materials used and manufacturing process. ZGS is able to withstand slightly higher temperatures for longer periods without burning.

What are the differences between ZGO 2 - 011 and ZGS 2 - 010 exactly, GlowMaster? The price difference is pretty big so I'm curious. Seems like just what I need though.

General Discussion / Glow in the dark powder for fired ceramics
« Last post by Yvonnedallen on May 14, 2018, 12:12:35 PM »
Hello.  I need some help in understanding how the powders work in fired ceramics.   How would I go about using glow in the dark powder with commercial ceramic glazes?  Would I mix it in the glaze or sprinkle on top?  Can the glaze be colored or should it be clear?  Does one particular powder color work better than others?  I think a read that the max firing temperature would be 1050c which is 1922f.  How long can it be at this temperature?  Normal firing can be up to about 9 hours, so trying to understand if the powder would degrade in the firing.  What color would the glaze be after firing during the day time, would it be the color of the powder and would the fired glaze retain its glossiness?    If there is an instruction sheet about firing glo in the dark powders, I would appreciate having it.  Thanks.

What is Glow in the Dark?

Glow in the Dark is the most efficient emergency lighting system because it gets it power from surrounding light and is ever ready for any sudden blackout.

What are pebbles?

A pebble is a clast of rock with a particle size of 2 to 64 millimetres based on the Krumbein phi scale of sedimentology. Pebbles are generally considered large.

Where are pebbles used?

Beach and river pebbles are also used to create water-smart gardens in areas where water is scarce. Small pebbles are also used to create living spaces and gardens on the rooftops of buildings. Indoors, pebbles can be used as bookends and paperweights.

Now we have Glow in the Dark Pebbles Stones and Rocks.

BlackLights are lights that emit UV rays. There are different types of UV rays. Some are harmful, some are not, and some are necessary for our existence.

    Longwave - UVA (315 to 400 nm), also known as black light, which causes tanning
    Mediumwave - UVB (280 to 315 nm), which causes damage in the form of sunburn
    Shortwave - UVC (100 to 280 nm), which is filtered out by the atmosphere and never reaches us.

Glow in the Dark Products gets charged faster with black lights as compared to normal room lights. UV Light Reactive products, Must have a Blacklight in order to work. 

Good to read what Confusious on Wikipedia says about the topic first, before Watching this video on YouTube.

With improvements made in the Glow in the Dark manufacturing process, we are seeing Glow products which can glow brighter and for longer periods. Typical glowing time is now between 3 to 10 hours. This makes it practical for use as signages especially in areas often hit with power failures.

Glow in the dark technology is best used as an Emergency Lighting system which requires no maintenance or external power source. The only thing needed in order for Glow in the dark products to work well is a good source of surrounding light. It charges when there is surrounding light (even room light) and glows when the surrounding light goes off (whether switched off or due to a power failure).

Benefits of using Glow Products vs Powered Emergency Lighting are:
  • No Maintenance
  • No Wiring or any external power required
  • Guaranteed to work in a power failure

Some regulators require Lighted signages in critical places. When placed in areas leading to the main Exit, Glow in the dark Signages can still be used to guide people safely. Best to install Glow signages in areas where there is always a good source of light. This is to ensure it stays fully charged until a power failure occurs.
