Glow in the Dark Paint
Glow Paint for Walls and Metal
Glow in the Dark Paint, also known as Photo Luminous Glow Paint, is produced by mixing Glow in the Dark Powder, with specially formulated Clear Solvent or Water based mediums, together with other additives and anti-settling agent.
Pete’s Luminous Creations Glow in Dark Paint are specially formulated to a high standard and can glow brightly, for long hours. These glow paints come pre-mixed. No further mixing is necessary. Mixing ratio of glow powder to clear paint is approximately 35% powder to paint. This works out to about 350 grams (14 oz) of powder, to 1 litre (33 fl ounces) of clear paint. For 1 gallon (3.8 litres) of paint, we would mix at least 3.3 pounds (1.5 kg) of glow powder into it. This ensures the high quality of our product.
Glow in the Dark Paint Properties
This is not the same as Glow in the Dark inks which are mainly used for offset or silk screen printing. Glow in dark paints can give out light in the dark. This is not like UV products which require a UV black light in order to work. However, glow painting, must be done under UV light or you cannot see what you are painting.
Glow Paint Production Standard
Finding the right medium to mix with, is the key factor here. If not, you would end up with an unstable glow paint as the glow powder would sink and harden at the bottom. The Luminous Glow in the dark Paints sold here are mixed with special pigments and anti settling agents to prevent this from happening. These paints can be stored for more than 12 months. Painted surfaces, if well protected, can last for many years.
