What is Glow in the Dark?
Glow in the Dark is a term used to describe products that can absorb and store surrounding light. The stored light is released in the form of a glow, which is visible when the surrounding light starts to fade, like when the sun sets.
What can it be used for
Due to the ability for Glow in the Dark material to give out bright light when there is sudden darkness, the best use of this would be as Emergency or Standby Lighting in the event there is a sudden power failure (blackout).
Glow in the Dark products are definitely the most reliable emergency lighting because they require no maintenance or power source. Their power comes from surrounding light.
Benefits of Glow in the Dark
- Can be installed anywhere where there is bright light
- No wiring needed
- No power supply needed
- No more electrical problems like tripping or short circuit
- No maintenance needed
- Lasts for years!
How long can the Glow last?
This depends on the material used. There are 2 different materials for the production of glow in the dark products. One is Zinc and the other is strontium. Zinc glows for minutes while strontium can glow for hours.
As shown in the chart, the glow is at its brightest within the first few minutes after which it fades off. Zinc based Glow loses about 50% of its brightness within 2 minutes, while Strontium based Glow can lose about 50% brightness within the first 15 minutes.
How Great if it could Glow in the Dark Brightly! All Night Long
This is now possible with the latest development from AllNightGlow. This is a concept of charging glow in the dark material at regular intervals to keep it Glowing in the Dark! All Night Long.
Glow in the Dark on its own, works well as Emergency Lighting. But by charging it at intervals to keep it glowing in the dark All Night Long, we now can use this technology to power up lighted signs and banners.
Watch the video to see how it works.
