How To Make Glow Paint

Why make your own Glow in The Dark Paint?

This is a good question especially since we have pre-mixed, ready to use off the can, glow in the dark paint. There are a number of reasons why you would prefer to make your own glow paint and here are the main ones:

  1. We carry a general purpose solvent based paint which is suitable for most applications, but in some cases, it would be better to use a more suitable medium.
  2. Solvent / Oil based products fall under the "Dangerous Goods" classification. As a result, shipping charges for these items can sometimes cost more than the cost of the product itself. It would be more cost effective getting the glow powder from us and getting the mixture from a paint supplier near you.
  3. Some specialised paints like liquid latex body paints, are only available overseas.

Things you need for making Glow in the Dark Paint

  1. Clear or Transparent Resins
  2. Viscosity Adjusting Agent
  3. Anti Aging Agent - Optional.

---------------------------------------------------------------------

  1. Glow in the Dark Powder Pigment
    We have a wide range of glow in the dark powders for this.
  2. Clear or Transparent Resins
    The following Resins are suitable for use with our Glow Powder, as long as they are Clear or Transparent:
    • Acrylic Resin - suitable for use on wood and metal surfaces
    • Epoxy Resin - offers excellent adhesion and protection for outdoor usage
    • Other Resins - consult your paint dealer on the characteristics of each!
      to find the one best suited for your application.
  3. Viscosity Adjusting Agent
    Glow in the Dark Powder Pigments are generally heavier than most resins and would naturally sink to the bottom and harden within a few hours of mixing. To prevent this from happening, you have to adjust the viscosity of the resins by adding "Viscosity Adjusting Agent".

 

Mixing Ratio for making Glow in the Dark Paint

  1. Glow in the Dark Powder Pigment - between 20% to 50% (measured by weight)
  2. Clear or Transparent Resins - between 80% to 50% (measured by weight)
  3. Viscosity Adjusting Agent - between 1% - 2% of total product weight.

For example, to produce a reasonable good glow paint weighing 1 kilogram (2.2 pounds), you would need to mix:

  • 350 grams of Glow in the Dark Powder (35% mix)
  • 650 grams of Clear or Transparent Resin (65% mix)
  • 12 grams of Viscosity Adjusting Agent (1.2% mix)
